Today is SATURDAY. We remind ourselves of the day and date as this new life does not have the same daily functions that kept us current (smile). No school. No job. No meetings. No obligations. No yard work. No family functions. No social. That is alot of Nos. Once we are traveling there will be some structure as we will have sights to see, places to go, stuff to do....but for now, we are floating and after the month we have had, this floating feels mighty good!
(Our new pantry)I have done my first grocery shopping as a full-time occupant of a home with a 4 cu. ft. refrigerator! Amazing difference. I made chili yesterday and used a can of tomato paste, a can of diced tomatoes, a can of chili beans, so I bought replacement cans of those items. A small carton of 2% milk and no stocking up on anything!!! I brought quite alot of canned goods from our pantry and have managed to store them all in one shelving unit....a miracle! I don't buy 5# bags of anything anymore. The habits of an adult life-time are being broken down...happily. I remember long ago coming home from doing my grocery shopping at the Commissary at Ramstein AFB, Germany. We lived in a small village and the owners of our duplex son was in the yard when I drove up and he offered to help me unload my trunk...when I lifed the lid and he saw how very many bags of groceries I had he exclaimed in lovely German accented English, "You are expecting a catastrofe???" Yep, that's how I shopped, like the end of the world was near. Not any more tho!
Well, it is still cool and not quite full daylight, maybe I will turn off the computer and catch a few winks ;-)
