The past couple of days have been crazy for me. Keith has been working second shift for over a month now but they just started 12 hour shifts this week. The twins are still teething and Eli has had digestion problems on top of that this week. They have both been staying awake until 5 or 6 am every morning. I am not getting very much sleep. I needed to go to the grocery store for formula and a few other things yesterday. I set our alarm for 1pm and me and Lil Keith went to the local Food Lion. We get there and get our cart full and head to the check out. Right as I am finishing unloading our cart on the conveyor belt the entire system shuts down. All of the computers were down. So after waiting around for 20 minutes the store manager announces that the system will be partially up in 3 minutes but they can only take cash or checks. All I had was my debit card. I had to leave that store drive the jaunt across the way to the next grocery store (thankfully our little town has more than one) and run in to get just the bare bones of what we needed. I had to get home and get Keith's lunch ready and make sure he had something to eat before leaving for work.
Fast forward to today. Same agenda. The grocery store had some good sales and I had several matching coupons so I really wanted to shop. I set the alarm for 1pm and me and Lil Keith head out. I first stopped at the local Dollar General and got diapers and pull-ups using my cash. Then it is off to Food Lion again. I get in the store and go to swipe my loyalty card to get the printable coupons and I realize that I left my loyalty card and my debit card in the pants that I had been wearing the previous day..... I guess it is not in the cards for me to get in on those savings at this particular store. Their sale lasts until Tuesday. I am going to try one more time to go this weekend. Wish me luck!
