For those of you who haven’t been shopping lately, those stories on the news are not exaggerating. The shelves were all but empty. I came home with less than half of my list and it wasn’t a very long list to begin with. There is one aisle that is usually filled with canned vegetables, fruit and juice. There was not one can of vegetables or fruit to be found and only two bottles of the exact juice that I needed to get to take with my medication. I only bought one bottle and left one for someone else, but seriously that was the only thing on that entire long aisle. I truly feel that God put that juice there for me because he knew of all the things on my list, I really needed it.
No flour, sugar, actually I could just go on and on. I have never seen anything like it. Sam just suggested on my last post that next time I do a call in order and either pick it up or have it delivered and I think that’s what I’ll do. All I really needed was some fresh items like milk, bread, eggs and the juice. I was just going to pick up a few other things to round out our cupboard but I guess not. We may have some interesting meals but we will not starve. And there was lots of ice cream. So I bought ice cream!
I should have taken some photos but honestly I was just shellshocked. You’ve probably all seen very similar pictures on the news and online anyway
I did start a new baby blanket this afternoon. It’s not very big yet! Ha!
Would you all like to see a picture of Piper? That always cheers me up!
Their neighborhood sent out a message to everyone saying that since the kids couldn’t do anything fun for St. Patrick’s Day at school, they suggested putting shamrocks in the window so they could take walks and count the shamrocks and know that they were all thinking of each other. Here is Piper on her walk this afternoon counting shamrocks on her little clipboard. I think it must be cold!
Stay safe out there everyone!
