SOLSC Day 15
Yesterday I went to the store because we needed a few items. I did not go to stock up on things even though I bought some paper products because we are low and needed them.
No, I had more essential items that I needed to buy. I was hoping that the shelves would not be empty because I didn’t where else I could go. I didn’t want to leave the valley.
I made my shopping list the day before after going through what we had to see what I needed if I were going to survive this self-imposed quarantine. As I carefully looked through things I wrote down the needed items.
Around 9:30 yesterday morning I was ready and set off for the store. When I got there the parking lot was full, but no more so than it is on any Saturday. I got inside and it was not aisle to aisle people. Checkout lined were not backed up. This was a good sign.
I started shopping. There were plenty of the non-essential items on the shelves so I had no trouble picking them up and putting them in the cart. I got to the paper products aisle and although things were picked over, I was still able to get a pack of paper towels and toilet paper.
Now to check on what I came for. Hopefully I would be as lucky here. As I entered the aisle I didn’t notice any gaping holes. That is a good sign. I knew what I needed was in the middle of the aisle so I headed down.
Yes! Oh joy! They were not sold out of what I wanted. Most of the ingredients I had at home but these few items I didn’t.
Now I can do some baking and get through this. We all have our ways of coping.
