I am feeling like absolute crap, so I decided to make a run to the grocery (a drive, actually) and get some Campbell’s Chicken Noodle soup for my lunch. You remember it, the kind of soup Moms used to serve their kids, and nothing tastes better when you’re not feeling up to par? I spent 10 minutes at the Campbell soup display – NO, I don’t want lo-fat chicken noodle soup; I don’t want Homestyle Chicken Noodle Soup; I don’t want Heart Healthy chicken noodle soup! I just want the stuff most American kids have grown up on. I finally found it hidden on the bottom shelf, and I have to tell you it hit the spot for my lunch.
Then I decided I want some macaroni & cheese, so I looked in the entire row of pasta for elbow macaroni. They have every pasta known to man on those shelves, including whole wheat versions of all the pastas, quinoa versions, etc. Where’s the Muellers Elbow Macaroni? I finally located a small bag of DaVinci elbow macaroni so now I can make my mac & cheese.
Some Tilamook cheddar and a 30 pack of Miller Hi Life rounded up my purchases because I felt too weak to continue. The chirpy cashier asked me how my day was going, and I said “OK”. She kept pushing me until I finally told her I’ve been painting and am getting pretty tired of it. She answered, “So that’s what the beer is about?” What a smart aleck!
It has taken me all day to clean 4 cabinet fronts and get the primer on, and I’m going to call an end to the painting for now when I get them hung back up. I’ll be at a good stopping point. I hate to leave the kitchen unfinished, but it will just have to wait until I feel better, or get back from the east, whichever is sooner.
A few posts back someone asked if my mobile home requires a license plate, and the answer is “NO”. I have a piece of paper that says “Registration Card”, which is good until March 31, 2013.
I hope everyone has a good weekend – can’t believe another one has rolled around already. Time is surely speeding up.
