Remember my concern about retirement? Here’s another example.
This morning as I was preparing to fix breakfast, Vince began this conversation:
Vince: Would you like to go to Whataburger for breakfast?
Me: Not really!
Vince: Well, I’d like to run by Wal-Mart and see if they got in any more ammo. You can sit in the car!
Me: I need a few groceries and it shouldn’t be so crowded in Wal-Mart today.
So . . dumb me . . I left thinking we were going to Whataburger and Wal-Mart.
Stop #1 – Whataburger as planned.Stop #2 – Wal-Mart as planned though we bought way more than what was on our lists.
Stop #3 – Kroger – Vince’s idea. I didn’t need a darned thing but we bought a few things. Dr. Pepper were on sale!
When we came out of Kroger, I said “The front right tire looks low.” Vince insisted it wasn’t but we decided to go by the tire shop. They thought they saw a nail in it so they took it off, checked it but it was a rock. It was low, as were all the tires so they put more air in them all. Winter seems to do that to tires. We were there at least half an hour, probably more like an hour.
Then Vince said “Well, it’s almost lunch time now. Do you want to go to Taco Bell?” NO! But we did.
Stop #4 – Taco Bell.
Stop #5 – Big Lots . . just in case they had any good Christmas candy marked down . . again, not my idea.
Stop #6 – Dollar General – just in case they had any good Christmas candy marked down and they did not.
He so badly wanted to go in Tractor Supply but he could not remember what it was he needed there and I threatened to pitch a fit in the parking lot if he stopped one more place so we came home . . at 2:30.
How will I ever get anything done when he’s home full time?
