To Market, To Market

To market, to market to buy a fresh turkey, Home again to dry it into jerky...

Or really to figure out how to get it to thaw in 2 days....why are they still frozen at the market! Don't they know Thanksgiving is in 2 days!

On my list of Thanksgiving preparation for Richard's family to join us on Wednesday evening sometime, today was my market day, so I can have everything as fresh as possible without waiting until the last moment....which would be Wednesday. That day is saved for other tasks :) For some reason, everyone else in Rochester Hills thought the same thing. Krogers was busy, Costco was busier. Doesn't anyone work anymore. You would think that hitting Krogers at 9 a.m. would offer the convenience of a little alone time in the market...nooooo...I'm there with all the other SAHM that just dropped their kids off at school. Which was again me!

Today was a special day for Andrew. He was allowed to wear PJs to school today...but only for elementary school. So, he heads over to middle school at 7 am for his math class, and somehow convinced me to pick him up after at 8:45 so he can change, but he needs to be back at elementary school at 8:55 because he is in charge of doing the news this week & next week.

Of course my comment last night was to pack his PJs and change at school, or wear his bottoms under his blue jeans and just drop trou when he gets to school. Noooo that wouldn't work. Instead, I'm on a time table at the gym to make sure I leave by 8:30, so I can get to WMS, pick Andrew up, get home, he changes while I make second breakfast for him (bagel to go), then off to Long Meadow to start the next part of his day.

After rushing back to school, I finally get to go to the market to start my shopping experience. Back and forth, back and forth, and back and forth once more. I think I finally have everything to last at least until Friday when I'll need more bread & salad!

Now I'm ready for Wednesday...bank, post office, orthodontist, make pumpkin rolls, and clean bathrooms (again)...oh and another load of towels.
