This morning, Gillian mentioned we needed milk after she got her cereal. Ok, I can see that. We go through it fast, but it seems like anytime I buy more than a gallon at a time is the time we stop going through it, and a lot of it goes to waste.
After dropping the kids off at school, I prepared to turn onto our road, and decided to go to the grocery store instead. I needed some other items- we're out of peanut butter, butter, milk, and some other odds and ends. I got there, went in and started my shopping trip.
After getting more than we needed (I picked up ginger ale for Nick, some gatorade for Nick, some watermelon for both of us, frosting for this weekend, etc), I started towards the check out lanes. That's when it hit me- my bank card, sitting nice and safe on my desk at home.
I prayed I had put it in my purse, but a thorough search yielded nothing. No cash, no bank card. I didn't even think to use the credit card (I try not to use it at all, so it's not on my mind often), so I wound up leaving empty handed. I got home, and sure enough, there sits my bank card. Safe and sound.
I almost never do that, but I had to pay our cell bill over the weekend, so I had my card out, and I just didn't put it back in my purse. My bank account card was also sitting out on my desk. Nick used it while straightening out the house payment- they won't take debit cards, only checks, so he needed it because it has the routing number and account number. We have a checking account, but we don't write checks, so we don't have any.
I must refill my purse this morning. Food sounds really good. Scratch that- Watermelon sounds heavenly.
