Aw, snap.

Yesterday was a good day.

Until we went to Wal-Mart.

I had to pick up groceries, etc. Dave took all three kids and wandered around the store while I shopped for the food. I saw a couple of people I knew. No big deal.

When I found Dave, the kids were still good. We headed toward the front of the store, and all of a sudden, I snapped.

It was so weird.

It was like Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde. I just lost it. I didn't want to talk to anyone, not even the cashier. I was snapping at Dave and the kids.

We got into the car, and I realized the life had been sucked out of me at Wal-Mart.

Dave felt similarly, but he didn't snap.

I think it was a combo of seeing people I know when I just want to be anonymous, having to be nice when I don't feel like it, being ravenously hungry, and having to excuse my wiggly children from every passerby.

I also think the evil-o-meter is pretty high right now, probably orange threat level. That might have had something to do with it too.

Dare I say, "I've become a homebody?"


  1. i know what you mean. so many factors can apply right now... but sometimes it's just walmart.

  2. I have been wondering this week if I have become a recluse. I too find it exhausting to go out into the world. Maybe it's because I try to schedule all of my errands so that I only have to go out one day a week-it's easier that way having one car and all. I love being at home. In fact I'm looking forward to not leaving the house tomorrow-oh yeah I think that we are going over to someone's house for dinner. Guess I better find out about that one.
    Love you!

  3. My two´s Wal-Mart. Nothing good can come from that place!

    Hope you are enjoying Arkansas.

  4. haha! I'm definitely a HOME BODY:)

    for me it's the blood sugar.. if I've not eaten in a couple of hours, just step away from me! it's ugly! ;)

  5. I have felt that in Wal-mart but also other places, it is hard to be out in a crowd with the kids and at the same time trying to get something done like shopping.

    Love love love your honesty!

  6. Evil-o-meter? Sorry your life got sucked out. I heart you though and I had a super good time at your hzouse.
