My husband went grocery shopping by himself yesterday, for the first time in our eight year marriage. I don’t know if that says something about the state our house is in – he must have been pretty desperate to to an actual errand without being prompted. I have been a little busy. So I was overjoyed to hear that I could cross that chore off my list. . . until I got home, and took a little inventory of what had been purchased. My husband’s solo jaunt to the grocery store yielded the following:
a pack of applesauce
a pack of yogurt
a pack of cottage cheese
spagetti sauce (no spaghetti)
lunch meat (no bread)
milk (no cereal)
Um, okay. I know, I know, I need to affirm positive behavior, and I’m still happy he took the initiative. I am doing all I can to hold back the mocking. It was such a temptation last night to announce that for dinner we would be having cottage cheese with spaghetti sauce and turkey slices. Not to mention the complete lack of fruits or vegetables. And don’t get me started on the fact that not a single coupon was used for any purchases!! Oh well. At least he tried. Looks like I’ll be making a Ralph’s run tonight.
