She wore a pink sweatsuit.
I met her last week at Shop Rite. Okay, I didn't exactly meet her!
I was shopping in line behind this lady in a pink sweatsuit. Her cart was piled HIGH with groceries. I noted this, because I was silently calculating how long it would take her to get her order checked out so that I could be on my way.
She had canned goods, frozen goods, dairy, cereals ... everything you could think of.
And then I saw it -- the stack of coupons.
Ladies, my mouth was WIDE open!
Beep ... Beep...Beepbeepbeepbeepbeepbeepbeep ... and on and on it went.
I strained my ears above the sound of Lena singing "A Spoonful of Sugar" to hear the grand total.
TWENTY SEVEN DOLLARS AND NINETY CENTS.
Yes, ladies -- she got all that food for under thirty dollars! I was aghast. I was amazed. I wanted to grab her by her pink velour sleeve and drag her to my coupon box and ask her to make that happen with my order! I always go to the store with a lot of coupons, but only end up making a few work. So pink, sweatsuit lady, if you are reading. I would love to have you over for tea and a seminar!
And also, I want to thank my capable daughter for posting for me in my absence, and to all of you for your potty training tips.
Things have been so busy here, and hubby and daughter have been pretty sick. The holidays were too busy even though we thoroughly enjoyed the times we had.
We just love our family time, whether we are at home reading on the couch, running around singing Mary Poppins songs with Lena (yes, we can all step in time), or driving home from church singing hymns in the dark.
So I need to go wipe a runny nose, and I'll talk to all of you soon!
