I hadn’t planned on shopping today. It was dreary out, my son was sick and I was tired. I had plenty of homekeeping chores to attend to and it looked like it would be one of those days. Luckily I had already pre-cooked a roasted chicken and didn’t have to think about dinner tonight.
My husband gently reminded me that I had told him I needed to go to the store on Monday. Well that was last Thursday when I said that. Back when I was full of energy and looking forward to the new Publix sale.
Right…the new Publix sale. My mind started racing as I remembered the FREE items that I would get if I went shopping today. All of a sudden I felt rejuvenated. So, I quickly finished cleaning the Master bath and headed out to the store.
