It just gets crazier and crazier.....
One thing I do every payday is head to the commissary for grocery shopping, I've said before, I shop for two weeks because being military we get paid on the first and the 15th. With that said, grocery day is always crazy, we live in a base that is surrounded by the biggest retired military community, there's something like 70 000 retirees and things can get quick hectic near the Commissary and inside.
You have to be extra careful when driving and obviously inside the store. It's already crazy but when the base or whoever, suddenly decides to resurface the parking lot, then boy are we stuck with a major hassle.
This is the parking lot before, now most of it is under construction leaving pretty much nowhere to park. I had to park across the street at the Chinese restaurant, I have a friend who had to park on the 3rd floor of the BX covered parking (right ahead on the photo above). Of all the times in the year to decide to do this, they pick now????
Needless to say, it took me forever to find a spot, took me forever to get the groceries because the store was full and it took me forever to get the heck out of the parking lot. It's been ONE of those days.
But after that crazy day, I'm now finally able to sit at the computer and relax, if it were up to me I would already be in bed.
I have absolutely no plans for this weekend, I think it's going to be one of those easy going whatever happens go with the flow weekends and that suits me just fine. It's been way too busy around here lately and I'm craving peace and quiet, hot coffee, a good book and comfort food, maybe some knitting and definitely some more McLeod's Daughters.
For now though, I'm going to take a warm bath and then give the kids theirs, then it's warm pj's for everyone, hot chocolate and butter cookies and reading in bed, we may watch a movie too and try to stay up waiting for daddy to come home from work.
It's my perfect little moment in this imperfect world we live in.
