Grocery Shopping

I must be out of my mind to decide to grocery shop at the end of the month the end of the year.  The three stores I went to were crowded.  I did manage to stay under budget and get quiet a few bargain.
At my first stop I purchased the unsalted nuts that I like from Trader Joes.  J bought his pineapple and flavored almonds.

Next stop I bought brand name pasta at bargain prices from Big Lots.  $1.00 a box for veggie pasta when the same brand is $1.29 where I normally would buy it.

We stopped for lunch and I had a craving for an Angry Whopper.  I haven't had one of those in four years.  Not since I moved out to the West Coast.  I rarely eat beef so please don't judge me.

Last stop was the commissary on McChord AFB.  Here is where I struck gold.  Two boxes of cereal, J eats the cereals not me as they are too full of sugar, for only $1.19 each.  Kleenex tissue 184 ct. boxes were on sale for $1.00 each so I picked up nine boxes.  With my chronic sinusitis I go through a lot of tissues. 

On the way home nausea struck.  It wasn't from being hungry nor from what I ate.  I'm not sure what brought on the episode.  No strange smells being pulled into the car from outside either.  Maybe it was J's driving?  Some of my readers know what J's driving is like and how he sometimes swerves while driving.  One cop has pulled him over actually thinking he was intoxicated. 
Maybe I should get one of these to combat J's driving effect on my stomach?  or possibly keep some of this on hand?


  1. The ginger drop candies work pretty well. I keep a bottle of zofran with me at all times.

    1. Might have to get some of both. I just had another mild bout of it and I still needed to take my vitamins so I grabbed four ginger snaps to help.

    1. Something has got to work. I don't know if carrying ginger snaps is a good idea.

  3. Just wanted to stop in and wish you a Happy New Year with little to no pain!
