I have to go to the grocery store today. Milk is our breaking point, and we’re halfway through the gallon we have, and we’re going through it faster than usual and I’m never sure now that it will be in stock, so, half out = get more.
My list is way longer than I’d prefer, cause I don’t like trolley shopping. I just like running in, getting a couple things and getting out. But now it’s hold out until you hit the breakpoint, so things just keep getting added on until we run low on milk. (Or carried over from the last trip when whatever it was wasn’t in stock.)
And I’m looking at the list and wondering what will and won’t be there. Did the Karens go batshit and clear the aisles AGAIN after the Stay At Home order on Monday? Did the meat case get restocked today? Will there be any paper products?
I’m hoping it will be quiet and clear, which has usually been the case at lunchtime lately, cause while I go to the store fully prepared to do a 180 if it’s crowded, I just don’t want to have to do that today.
Going to the grocery store was never stressful, unless it was right before a snowstorm. And even then, it was one and done. And I wasn’t wondering if I should have gloves or a mask.
This weird specific grocery store stress has been going on almost a month, on top of the general pandemic stress that has been going on since what, early to mid-February as we have been watching this slow motion train wreck of a federal response.
Add to that some serious corporate annoyance today (which to be honest, is what really set me off this morning,) and is it any wonder that all my muscles are in tense little knots today?
