It was only a matter of time before I had to let Ina in on the harsh truth - Momma has a boyfriend.
They met yesterday.
It was somewhat akward.
He really wasn't expecting us.
However, he was pretty accomadating.
Seriously though, I never noticed how small the shopping carts are at Trader Joe's. After Ina's car seat was stuffed in, there wasn't room for much else. Luckily, I brought a huge bag to carry on my shoulder and shove a few things in. After that was full I used the rack on the bottom of the cart, and towards the end Ina may have had to cuddle up close to a loaf of bread or two.
A very nice TJ's employee (whose name wasn't Becky- I checked) helped me carry my stuff to my car.
We made it out of the store in one piece without any crying episodes and only a few (well intended) strangers trying to put their germy hands on my baby.
I feel like the real me, now that my pantry is re-stocked with my favorite TJ's staples.
I never realized all the planning that is required in a simple outing to the grocery store. I didn't plan all that well and had to feed Ina in the Trader Joe's parking lot. I gave the guy picking up trash in the parking lot quite the surprise. Ha!
I started watching a new reality TV show, and I was so into it that I walked 4 miles in an hour before I stopped (+6). More on that later.
