This morning in an attempt to simplify - I decided not to take my purse to Bible Study - one less bag. So, I put my wallet in with my study materials and was off. Worked great.
I've been trying for three days to get to the grocery store. Between what was on the calendar and Emily's nap time - today was the first afternoon I had to go.
So, off to Wal-Mart we went. Um, anyone see where this is going yet? Yep, you guessed it - I did all my shopping, appeased Emily with graham crackers (which were not the Cheerios she wanted) and got what we needed and even a special treat for dinner.
Off to the self-check-out line. Everything scanned, coupon deducted, groceries bagged in canvas bags from home to cut down on plastic bags, and my check written out.
Oops - forgot my wallet - must be in other bag (yes - simplifying). Oh well, they'll probably still take my check right? Wrong. The girl made me feel like a speck when she told me they did not accept checks without ID.
So, after one hour I came home with no groceries, a change in dinner plans, injured pride, tears in my eyes (yes, the girl made me cry) and after all that I lost my coupon on the cereal I was buying.
Sigh...maybe I'll try again tonight when David is home to stay with Emily. Yes, as the title suggests I DO take everything personally. If anyone wants to suggest that this is just pregnant emotions - please feel free to with-hold your comment, because you know I might take it personally. :)
