an affordable luxury

I had groceries delivered yesterday.
The store had a special, money off, free delivery, so how could I say no?

I've never had a problem bringing the girls into the store. They acted like model children... then I had E3.
I absolutely love his abundant energy. He is so much fun to be around and watch. ... but at certain times, such as during mass, or at the grocery store, it is exhausting.

By ordering online, I bought everything on my list, and nothing more. no impulse buys :)

All 3 kids are sick with a fever today and a slight cold. So I'm glad that I ordered, or I would have to get really creative for lunch and dinner.

The delivery guy brought the bags into the kitchen, and Emma didn't even bark. She barks at everyone and everything. Maybe it was because he was bringing food.
He did see her, and say "what is that?, a badger?"
Come to think of it, she does look like a badger.

I can't wait for the next delivery special so I can order again.

I have to find soemone to atch the Boys while I shop. They are ALL boy and that does not go well with grocery shopping. No one around here delivers so I grab what I can when I can.

I used an on-line grocery service when I worked in SFO in 2000 - 2002. Not much more expensive than doing it myself, and their list had everything/anything my lil heart desired. Plus you could specify a delivery window, in two-hour increments, up to about ten o'clock at night.

The service was a real Godsend for a single-someone working at a start-up...which is to say most of my waking hours were spent at work. They went belly-up in the dot-bomb implosion, though. It's good to hear such services are still around!

dont you also find when you take a little ball of energy like your E3 (my dash-1) you end up forgetting half the stuff you needed because you are so preoccupied?

I'll have to think about the delivery option.....

it's not so much that I forget (I do some), but I just give up and go home half way through the list

Delivering groceries sounds great! Especially for how busy you are!

I've done the same thing a few times this deployment (Giant's peapod service). My kids are fine in the store but the process of shopping with the kids and then getting everything in the house and put away by myself sucks. And it makes me feel very lonely because bringing the groceries in becausee it's DH's job :(... So everytime I get one of those free delivery codes I use it!
