Under the Wire

I knew I had to write. I have been thinking about it all day. I wanted to write about something other than Covid-19.

It is trying times and everything seems different. A sense of oddity, if you will.

It started at we went to the grocery store this morning. We weren’t there to stock up. We needed ingredients for tonight corned beef and cabbage dinner. We needed stuff for the week. Coffee (I am off for two weeks so yes, I stock piled), coconut milk, veggie sausage…was hoping for some salad mix and veggies as well but that was not in the card. I have never seen the shelves at the grocery store so empty. Not even in the midst of the threat of the biggest blizzard. Even the shelves of canned veggies. How many cans of peas, beans, and corn can you eat? However, maybe all the corn eating would lead to the toilet paper shortage?????

We have some chicken and hamburgers already in the freezer. I am hoping to be able to get some fresh veggies and salad mixes in the next week.

I will keep my social distance but I need to try to eat healthy while I am home.

It won’t be easy because the eggs that were in plenty of stock were the mini Cadbury mini-eggs. Ugh! Wish me luck.

Finished the post…under the wire!

  1. I’ve been feeling the same way–I keep wanting to write about something different, but the surrealness of elements of daily life that should feel normal have made it hard for my brain to settle on anything other than talking about my unsettled feelings. This line made me laugh: ” the eggs that were in plenty of stock were the mini Cadbury mini-eggs.” My grocery store, too was low on eggs when I looked for them. I should have thought about getting Cadbury eggs. 🙂 Much tastier!
