Bean Bag Pillow 1, Jen 0; Grocery Store 1, Jen 0

on November 25, 2014

So, today started with this discovery…


What is that you ask? Well, I have a bean bag pillow that I sometimes sleep with to help with back pain. Apparently, at some point last night, a little hole opened up and the result was the bed being filled with these itsy-bitsy beads. Awesome. I had to actually vacuum the sheets to pick them all up, which is not something I ever thought I would do.

After that nonsense was over I started on the Thanksgiving prep. I checked the grocery list and made sure I had everything I needed and took out all of the serving dishes so I am ready for the food prep tomorrow. Mid-morning the rest of the appliances arrived (yay!). Today was the fridge and microwave. Nothing like coming down to the Thanksgiving wire with the delivery.

My mom and nephew stopped by to keep me company while I worked in the kitchen. One of my favorite things about moving back home (we used to live on the North Shore of Boston) is that I get to see family at random times on random days. It is the best.

After they left I decided to head to the grocery store (and Home Goods…I mean, it is in the same plaza so why not).  I picked up a couple of things “I needed” at Homegoods. I have a weakness for Le Creuset and I am able to get amazing deals at our Homegoods.  Today I picked up a new utensil crock to hold the plethora of spatulas and spoons I keep close to the stove.

I wish I had gone home after Home Goods because my next stop was a nightmare.  Grocery shopping a couple days before Thanksgiving is bad enough but grocery shopping two days before Thanksgiving when there is snow in the forecast for the day before Thanksgiving and you have a disaster.  There were people everywhere.  Carts bumping into each other, people who possibly had never been grocery shopping…ever.  I almost cried in frustration in the middle of the baking goods aisle but I persevered and made it through.  Yikes.

But when I got home, there was something in the mailbox that made everything better.


Not only did the new Levenger catalog arrive but Food Network Magazine was in there as well.  Yay!  If my HGTV magazine had arrived it would have been the ultimate trifecta but I will take 2 out of 3.

    I’m glad you moved closer too. Fun to just stop by on a whim or go get dinner. An early Christmas present …..
