Now I can say I'm an idiot, but no one else can or I will cry. Today Marty is working a convention in San Francisco. He rode BART into the city and glory glory, I have the car. This is a big deal. We have one car and I rarely get it because he works and I don't. I don't need a car that often, but I miss having the freedom to just go when I want to.
I dropped him at BART and went to the library. No rush to get the car back to him as usual. Then I remembered we needed milk and a couple of other things. I decided to go to the grocery. We didn't need much and I would be able to carry it up our 26 steps. Marty does 95% of our grocery shopping, again he has the car. Plus he likes to shop and I hate it. So I am being lovely and nice to him by buying milk.
I get to the strip mall where our Safeway is. No handicap parking is available. I can walk pretty good now, so I just start looking for any parking. After three trips around the lot and down pretty far from the store, no empty spaces. I decide to go to another store not far from us. As I pull out of the lot, I see an empty space across the street. It isn't too far to carry the milk, so I park and head back to Safeway. Saying in my head, Milk, Milk, Milk. . .
I head to the dairy section and they are moving displays around and I can't easily get to the milk. So I check out the clearance in the meat section. Yay, scored 50% off on ground beef. Then I found some low fat low sodium cheese. I am such a happy girl. I walked through out the store reading labels and putting food back. Low fat is easy, try finding low sodium anything. I check out and walk back to the car. I get home and put up the little I bought and realize . . .
I forgot to buy milk!
