I had to make another trip to the dreaded Walmart today, as I needed more of the drawer and shelf liner that I bought there last week. I never have a good trip to Walmart, but this one was only half bad! All the people I came into contact with were friendly, but it's irritating when I can't find what I'm looking for. In my cleaning frenzy I threw out a bottle of rubbing alcohol and one of hydrogen peroxide, because they were years beyond their use-by dates; I've looked for replacements twice now at Walmart and don't know where they hide them. I'll get them at Target one of these days.
I got up in a great mood today - have felt happy all day and even have joy in my heart, so I didn't let the Walmart experience bother me too much. As I got into my car I noticed a man who probably was in his late 20's to mid-thirties, swinging a small plastic bag in one hand. He was pretty close to my car and for some reason I knew he was going to ask for money. He was decently dressed and didn't have that down-and-out look at all. I drove off without even fastening my seat belt, and when I was driving up to the exit I turned and looked to see if he was still hanging around, and darned if he didn't wave at me. The big twerp! I just don't trust a person wandering in an aimless manner in a parking lot, never actually going anywhere, and trying to make eye contact. That wave told me I was right on about my suspicions. About halfway home I just laughed out loud at the scene. (He wasn't just looking for his car, as I always park as far back in the parking lot as I can - few vehicles and I get a nice little walk to and from the store!)
I was planning to work on the kitchen drawers and cabinets this afternoon, but have wasted so much time that I need to start cooking dinner. I've cooked chicken which I'll save half of in the freezer, including the broth, for another meal. Chicken vegetable soup it's going to be, and I think I'll throw some rotini in for good measure. I don't eat pasta anymore because of the high carb content, but I think a few rotini in a soup that should last me three meals won't amount to many carbs.
I almost forgot that I bought two bottles of red wine at Costco, so I think I'll open one and have a small glass, "to help me cook".
NOT EVEN AN INKLING
