We finally went to the grocery store yesterday evening. This after having gone a week with no food. I think it was Wednesday evening when I ate the last package of Ramen noodles. Once we run out of food, we end up eating out. We like dining out as a treat, not as a means of survival. Brick Oven, Wendy’s, Texadelphia, Chick-Fil-A, Double Daves. Those establishments kept us alive for the past few days. We now have food in our refrigerator and pantry. Elise made a dewberry cobbler that I snuck a bite of this morning. Lasagna, shrimp kabobs, burgers, chicken and popsicles are on the menu for the rest of the week.
On Friday I took an extended lunch to get my truck inspected. It wouldn’t pass because I needed a new tail light lens. I drove around to places where cars go to die trying to find a tail light lens. I finally found one. I came back to work and looked online to find that I could have saved $20 had I shopped eBay first. I went home, installed the new lens, replaced a brake light and got my truck inspected. I watched the Lakers beat the Timberwolves.
We woke up early on Saturday and worked in the yard all day. Elise and I went to lunch at Texadelphia and went to HoPot for mulch and flowers. We came home and worked until the sun went down. We showered and met Mark and Terri for drinks at Applebee’s.
I changed the oil in my truck on Sunday and bought more rocks for edging one of the oak trees in our front yard. I went back to HoPot for more mulch and tomato cages. I came home and saw a bicyclist plow right into the front of a parked truck. After realizing that the guy was okay, I couldn’t help but die laughing on the inside. I then put a few things up for sale on eBay in an effort to raise funds for an iBook. Elise came home from work and we went to HEB with an on-the-fly grocery list. We always spend more when we go to the grocery store half cocked. Luckily we weren’t hungry.
