Supermarket Frenzy

Thanksgiving preparations continue. After work today I stopped off at the supermarket. It was a war zone and I am exhausted. I must sip slowly on my chilled glass of Calloway Coastal Chardonay to recover.

In anticipation of selling everything off the shelves, the store had extra pallets of food stockpiled in the aisles, which was not so great considering the number of people in the store and the traffic jams it created. I did deep breathing exercises, practiced friendliness and patience, and persevered. I now have all the needed ingredients (and then some) for my much anticipated cooking and baking frenzy. I will work tomorrow, and then I am off until Nov 29th. Days and days, I am jubilant.
