And a very Merry Christmas to you all!
We ended a busy day at work on Christmas Eve. Getting done around 1pm.
We then ran over to Meijer's for some Christmas Eve treats.
The parking lot was packed! We found a cart and took it in with us. We knew from past experiences that there would probably be none in the store. We were right. :-)
The store was busy, but not terrible. Craig decided on a meat and cheese platter. Which meant Bologna and 5 types of cheese. Craig is a cheese-a-holic. And this is the only time of the year, I let him eat 'real' cheese. And the only time we eat bologna.
Then it was over to the freezer section for my speacial treat, chicken wings. :-)
A few more odds and ends for Christmas Day dinner, and then outta there.
Heading to the check-outs, they were all 5-7 deep. But we headed to the other end of the check-outs and managed to find a line with only 3 ahead of us. By time we got to the belt, our line was now 6 deep. Good timing on our part.
As the cashier was just about done ringing us up, I noticed the person behind me was putting a bunch of wine bottles on the belt up-right. As I was just about to mention that she might want to lay them done, the cashier hit the switch to move the belt and all the bottles tumbled over with one going right off on to the floor smashing into bits. Hasn't this person ever shopped before? You don't stand bottles upright on a moving belt! Oh well.
I took my change from the cashier, and as we left, I felt sorry for the people behind her. They'll have to wait until someone cleans up the broken glass and wine.
Despite the traffic, (we did see one accident) we made it home safe. It was a nice quiet afternoon/evening, stuffing our faces, and watching holiday DVDs.
Today, it's Turkey with White Castle stuffing, a new potato casserole Craig is trying, and also a new cauliflower dish.
And I really need to do some cleaning. We'll see how that goes......:-)
