I hate the grocery store

I don't like going grocery shopping. I put it off all of the time. I'm at the point right now where my fridge consists of condiments, a couple of tortillas, and a nearly empty bag of shredded cheese. That's worse than many bachelors I know.

Food is my enemy. I don't like to cook just for myself. I don't like to spend time at the grocery store just to by food for myself. I do not like it at all.

I had thought about starting to use Amazon Fresh. They deliver to my neighborhood. It would save me the dreaded trip to the store. But then the layoffs happened at work and I got scared. Scared of spending a bit of additional money on food when I should be scrimping every single cent I possibly can because my god have you noticed the economy is in the crapper and people are losing their jobs all around you?

But I still hate the grocery store and wish I could make food magically appear in my house through little to no work on my part. Certainly that could happen with Amazon Fresh or ordering pizza or Chinese every night. That's not logical and neither is my detest of the grocery store but that doesn't mean I'm not sitting here right now dreading the fact that I need to go to that evil place tonight. Evil hated awful place.

WTH? How did I miss FOUR blog posts?! Yikes.

So great to see you back! I'm thrilled Tally is ok...there's nothing as nervewracking for a pet owner than having our little loves be ill. Yay for the simplicity of infections, treatable with antibiotics!!

Keep reading, too...I'm just getting back into that myself. It feels a little foreign, but it's all coming back to me.

And Amazon Fresh sounds so...fresh. Yum. And you know what, even if you do get laid off, it'll all be ok. Heck, you could come down here and play with me...being laid off isn't all bad! :)

Ugh. I hate grocery shopping too. Probably because my Ex insisted on going up every single aisle and the whole trip took over an HOUR.

I like to try to break my personal record for how fast I can finish shopping. 20 minutes, man. Tops. (And I shop for 2 weeks' worth.)
