We Have Toilet Paper!

Today was one of those days that I felt really productive.  I shopped.  There is just something about hunting up what we need and bringing it home, putting it away and relaxing when it's done that gives me a feeling of satisfaction. The fridge is full, the pantry is full, we have toilet paper, ... now we are prepared!

Maybe it is just the mom in me, or that plus homeschooling, that makes me feel more than a little stressed when our supplies are running low. It puts an extreme wrench in our day for somebody to run to the store to pick up this or that, and eventually you have the "double run" when I forget to tell that somebody to add one more thing to the list. Of course, it is possible that we just live too close to the store, and if we lived further away, it would be such an inconvenience that we would be happy to make do with what we have on hand.

Back in my previous life, the one where my husband had a regular job and received a paycheck every week, I would do the shopping every Saturday like clockwork.  Now that he has broken away from corporate America to pursue his passion for music, we have to be a little more creative! 

How often do you do your household shopping?

Who You Are, poetry

Just for who you are
Not what you do
Or how well you do it
I love you

Your heart is beautiful
Kindness blooms
breeze of gentleness
Blows through your rooms

A quiet chime
Sings out
Soothes my soul
Silences doubt

My darling star,
It's not what you do
Or how well you do it
It's who you are
