Welcome to the Jungle

I decided to go get the fresh vegetables and everything else that I had left to buy for Thanksgiving dinner today. I get to the store just as the song Welcme to the Jungle came on the radio. It couldn't have been a more perfect song for the moment. I drove into the parking lot, and there was not a parking spot, legal or illegal, to be had. I saw my inlaws coming out of the store and figured I would take their parking spot. I asked how it was in there, and they told me don't bother going in there if I don't have a couple of hours . They said it was insanely crowded and some of the stuff was sold out. I decided to go to the same store chain in another town a few miles away. What a difference! Found a spot right away, no lines, and no waiting. I was in and out in under an hour.

Sound like my daughter,who had to go to the market yesterday,after church! First thing,no parking space, I lefted my hanndicap tag in my van,I had to ride around playing tag with other drivers looking for parking spaces. Then, we go inside, every church person must had the same idea, I seen more high heels, big hats on little old ladies, all we needed was a organ,and some drums we could've had church in the veggies area. It was so crowded and hot in that market,and all my daughter could say,'Mommy,you want a soda'?

I think I got everything. I've got a couple of days to make sure. I've got everyone responsible for something so I don't have to get it all. LOL. Dinner for the family takes on a whole new meaning when it grows to 17 people. Good thing our siblings and their families aren't coming or we would have 24 for dinner.

I think it was extra busy because of Thanksgiving but also because we are supposed to have a snowstorm on Wednesday.
