Sick Mother Hubbard

I ventured out to Costco today because after three days of the mama being sick (sick after a weekend? not acceptable!!) the cupboards were bare.

And with a houseful of boys, you NEVER want the cupboards to be bare or they get extremely grumpy.

Let's go over the scene again.

Take a sick mama. Add to it bare cupboards AND grumpy men-folk. What do you get?

A weepy woman and weepy boys.

So, like I said before, I ventured out because I was feeling a bit better and made it close to 1/3 of the way thru Costco before I felt like I couldn't make it.

Too achy. Too tired. Too coughy, too sniffly, too sneezy.

I forced myself to keep going, throwing things in my cart that I thought might make someone, anyone, happy. Things like 30lbs of pork products. And cinnamon rolls. And the largest bag of chex mix I have ever seen. Oh, and lets not forget the flowers...gotta have fresh flowers.

We now have food and I have to say, there is nothing like the love boys give a mama who has gone grocery shopping.

Nothing like it at all.



  1. LOL---we've been trapped inside for the last two days (check my blog for the pics) and the boys have been plowing through the food! Good thing I hit the grocery store on Sunday evening or I might be braving the weather to find a grocery store. :) Hope you are feeling better friend. Take a nap--the boys have food now--they can fend for themselves. :)

  2. I'm so sorry you've been sick. I hope you feel better soon!

    I had to stock up on groceries and wine before the mother of all blizzards arrived. It's a good thing...we're still snowed in. I had a moment of panic when I thought I was out of chocolate, but then I found a bar of sea salted dark chocolate I had bought and stuck in the cabinet. Whew!

  3. Time to teach those boys how to do some grocery shopping! Just getting over the same aweful cold myself it has not been fun!
