For a fairly boring day, it was quite enjoyable. Even though Saturday is apparently idiot day at the local Walmart. (your side of town Beth) We do half of our grocery shopping at Walmart, basically the stuff that you can get anywhere, we buy there. Now when it comes to meats, cheeses and such, we normally go to either the meat market just down the road (all the meat comes from local farms and I find that reassuring) or to a grocery store that is located only in this area. (correct me if I'm wrong Beth, but Martin's is locally owned and operated?) I was so glad to be out of Walmart tonight. I must have said to my husband a dozen times that we will never, ever go there on a Saturday again. To me, it's always extremely stressful to be surrounded by morons. I just don't deal with it very well. And these were inconsiderate morons, making matters worse. At least I was able to get most of the ingredients I needed for the chicken enchiladas I'll be attempting to make this week.
After we made it home, I made tacos for dinner. We haven't had them in a while since neither me, nor my husband are huge fans but we were really in need of a change of pace for dinner. Jasmine was definitely NOT a fan and when we make them in the future, I'll have to make her something else. (I don't cater to my kid at dinner but I'm not going to force her to eat something that she so obviously did not like) Afterwards, I made some hot fudge sauce (for the first time) and we all had ice cream. Even Jasmine liked the hot fudge. Next time I'll use a little more chocolate but other than that, I thought it was much better than the store bought stuff. I love being able to make my own food (rather than buy a jar of something and heat it up) but it's always more expensive that way. At least I really KNOW what I'm eating when I make it myself.
Normally, I don't do this but if you get a chance, I really think you ought to check out Ken's most recent blog. It makes some really good points about dealing with changes that occur in life. I think far too often, a major change happens in someone's life and they don't deal with it properly. Most often, it seems to affect marriages. I've heard of many marriages going to hell the first year after having a baby for example. The first year with a screaming crying baby is hell. I always tell people not to give up on their marriage that first year because it's GOING to be hard. It's not easy dealing with changes and nothing ever goes exactly as you plan it to. You just have to roll with the punches and deal with what may come in the best way you can. Sometimes it's easier to bail but it's not usually the right thing to do. More often than not, the hard decision is the right one. So, go visit Ken at Bucko's World http://buckoclown.blogspot.com/.
