Last Thursday before I went out of town I went to the grocery store to stock up because I would be gone for almost 5 days and I wanted things to be easy for my MIL while I was gone. I used to leave her cash to get what she felt like making but I would come home to find everyone had been living it up on Chinese food and McDonald's and we were out of milk. We must not run out of milk. Particularly if I come home from traveling and I'm too tired to go get more. So I bought the fixings for a weeks worth of possibilities. I piled my almost $200.00 worth of groceries on the belt and my favorite check out lady took note:
"Wow, you outdid yourself today! You don't usually get this much."Yes, I'm going out of town and I needed enough to last while I'm gone.
Oh. What will your girls be doing? Do you let them stay alone yet?
No! I trust them but I wouldn't feel safe. My Mother in Law is staying.
And then she said:
Oh, Ok! I get it. That explains the groceries.
You don't want your MIL to catch on that you don't actually cook.
yeah. that was it...totally. Not only do i apparently have a Bad Rep in the Homemaker Society i came home and my MIL bought the Chinese food and Mcdonalds herself and i have a freezer full of things like chicken leg quarters and ham and Littlest ate all the Grasshoppers. but....i've still got milk : )
i am on my way to the grocery store right now. i will be buying nothing but milk, soda and cookies.
