I have gone to the grocery store the past two nights. I don't feel like I got what I needed. I don't really know what I was going for in the first place, other than food. I had no list, and that was a mistake.

I should preface by saying - until now, I rarely went to the grocery store. I don't have kids, so I don't have to plan out lunches or dinners. The only person I have to keep alive is me, oh yeah - and my boyfriend Nick.

I walked isle after isle aimlessly. I had no idea where the hell anything was. I was so uncomfortable, that I actually started to sweat. I even called Nick to ask him where the ice cream was.

I typically do a lot of my shopping at Rite-Aid. No joke. They have water, snacks, liquor, wine, shampoo, soap - pretty much everything. As far as food goes, they do have soup. More often than not, Nick and I go out to eat. That is not the case now. We still get take-out, but I figured it was time to at least keep some form of food in the house.

After two trips in a row to the grocery store this is what I have to show for it,

  • Pasta
  • Pasta sauce
  • More pasta
  • More sauce
  • Peanut Butter
  • Soup
  • Wine
  • Jim Beam
  • Coke Zero
  • Water
  • Ice Cream (for Nick)

I think it safe to say, the Jim Beam is the first to go. The moral of my grocery story is - make a list. I am making one after I type this. I forgot beer and shampoo.
