Did I mention I need one of everything? Did I mention I can sometimes get sort of frantic when I’m stressed? Did I mention I had a practically empty apartment with three extra people now staying in it? Did I mention I was quietly freaking out?
If I recall correctly, I got very little accomplished on Monday, and yet I was somehow still exhausted by the end of it. I did manage to get to Costco in my dad’s car to buy a microwave so we could eat the leftovers that were accumulating in our fridge. I also zipped over to Walmart, yet again, on my scooter to get a few more things necessary for survival for the first night of house guests. I think Emily and Geoff went swimming somewhere in there. I can’t remember what I made for dinner, but I know there was a bottle of wine and four cheap wine glasses in my basket.
I hate Walmart. They are environmental and human rights offenders. Their products lack quality and style. And yet, when Target is a half an hour away, it’s simply not practical to drive out there to get the cheap stuff we need for our apartment. And buying things at a nicer store is just not an option. We are currently in need of the cheapest of everything. My hands are tied. There’s not much I can do about it but hope that at some future date, I might be able to replace some of these cheap things with something a little better. I know. There are much worse problems to have. But that’s where I’m at right now. So be it.
