How many things can you squeeze into a week Costco shoppers? A lot evidently!
Finish painting the upstairs of the new place?
Work a full time schedule until Friday at 1 am, then drive to Barrie for a family party on Saturday morning?
Yup. (Don’t have a photo to document this, so I’m sorry…)
Find some amazing local farms in the Barrie area and also pet and feed the goats & cows?
Also have a good laugh at the funny sounds the chickens make.
Then get up on Monday, make a guest appearance at the Costco in Barrie?
(Yes – but forget to check the gas bar to see what the prices were… Dammit!)
Have a quick lunch, pack up the truck and head back home so we can both get back to work tomorrow… (though I had a sweet mobile office this afternoon)
The ride home did afford me some time to get all the picture editing done, so that’s not a bad thing at all. Plus we had a pretty killer soundtrack for the trip. Eagles, and some 80’s pop… Thumbs up to that!
I had a great moment of “palm-to-face” this morning, I needed to pick up milk for the In-Laws and couldn’t find the milk or the dairy stuff… I know where the milk is in my Costco, with all the other dairy stuff in the stand up fridges; but was at a total loss in this store. So after pacing the 4 or 5 aisles of frozen/refrigerated items I finally found an employee to ask “excuse me, where would I find the milk” She turned around and pointed to this…
So ya, I guess that’s where the milk would be huh? In that big dairy fridge area labelled “DAIRY” got it… Thanks… I know, use my eyes right???
Just goes to show that as I point out each time I go to a different Costco with a different layout you realize how much of the shopping experience becomes muscle memory, you have a path you always take and when you are elsewhere you get lost I guess… Well not lost, but you don’t do the obvious and look for the sign that says “DAIRY” when looking for milk… Can’t be perfect all the time!
Yes the trend of busy, busy, busy continues. And so do the sales at Costco here’s a peek at what in this week.
I’m not gonna lie folks, I may have to get them… They’re so cool! Put them on a bail of hay with a fog machine behind them??? Come on, that would be so cool!
Ok, I know I need to calm down, still lot’s of things to do before my FAVORITE season arrives… Just getting excited that’s all and I can’t wait to get all the Halloween stuff unpacked and take stock of what I have and whats missing… (Halloween stores can’t open up soon enough!)
I think I may leave it here for now. We’ve got to get settled back in at home and also clean the kitty litter boxes… They are kinda well, stinky!
Can’t wait for this… See you next week folks!
