so apparently there is a storm approaching.
i tend to never believe the weather channel.
but i did, in fact, drag 3 kids to the grocery store last night with all of creation to get milk and coffee creamer.
that was after the longest day in history.
after jing liu fought her nap for 3 long hours before collapsing from exhaustion.
after my dear friend came for a play date and then left during my neurotic franticness about jing liu not napping...because i could hardly function, let alone hold a conversation.
after the 3 hour early intervention coordinator interview (in which a small amount of mayhem ensued - que TV coma)
after the truck broke down (with trailer attached) on the way to pickup a freezer (free!! thank you dear new friend) and a craigslist washer and dryer.
after picking up my parents car to pick up the trailer to pick up the appliances.
it was now 7pm.
no one had eaten dinner.
jing liu, poor baby girl, screamed in the car for the last 45 min
the boys excruciating pleads from the backseat beckoned for food and an end to the screaming
i made a b-line for chick-fil-a
and after we scarfed large amounts of waffle fries, the boys played
and smiles ensued
and we did our usual secret ice cream maneuver
it was after all of that i attempted wegmans.
and guess what?? chick-fil-a ice cream in combination with a car-cart seems to be the best solution ever invented.
although i will always say i hate car carts more than anything else...i have broken my own rule and embraced the world's worst store contraption.
the grocery store was actually the best part of our day
and that's the first (and probably last) time i'll ever say that :)
