it feels a bit like cheating


...but it felt so good.
this evening i broke down and ordered my groceries online from our local market. it is amazing how guilty and indulgent i felt placing the order. what with all of the holiday tasks that need to take place around here the last thing i wanted to do was walk into another store. so this evening i sat down and planned out two holiday menus, wrote up a grocerie list and then placed the order online. it is all done with and all i need to do now is pick the order up on friday afternoon in time for our first big meal on saturday. i guess i should not feel so bad. i love planing meals and cooking them but going to the store is always a bit of a pain. it just seems that it is always such a production to get everyone out the door while remembering the list, bags, drawing pad and toys for miss. A. so i guess when i look at it this way i feel great about what i just did and may start doing this with all orders. we will see.

on other fronts things are coming along but it seems as if time is slipping away faster then the energy put forth. there are still holiday cards to finish and send out but i keep reminding myself that the holidays last until new years, right...




i have been finishing a few little drawstring totes for gifts and a pair of knitted socks for Miss. A. other gifts are coming along but i am finding it hard to get things done during nap time these days. for some reason Miss. A has decided that now is a good time to get molars and so her nap is all over the board. i guess it does not help that i have been dealing with a headache for the past few days so anytime she goes down all i want to do is rest. but now that the holiday meals are planned and out of the way i am ready to get down to business:: tomorrow. for now i am going to bed. take care

I haven't used that yet, but others have raved about it. NS is now a bit harder with my A, as she loves the car carts with a passion. Those things are like grocery store SUVs. Impossible to maneuver.

Good For You, ordering groceries. My Christmas stress bubble has passed (since we tried to mail everything by the 13th). You can do it!
Your goods look good. :)

did it work? i have NO EXCUSE since the store is literally up the block, but man it is tempting-- and totally worthwhile.

i visited new seasons when i was out there last year, and the idea of ordering online when you're super stressed and busy seems like heaven to me. wow.
