Just in case any of you were left in suspense….I made it to the store….at/around 2pm. This is pretty much a big deal for me because my shopping is done in the morning. After I hit a certain time of the day, I know I won’t be leaving the house………..again. All of this created in my mind to avoid anxiety.
I picked up the non-perishable items I will need for Thanksgiving. I’ll head out on Monday morning to do the rest of my shopping.
Aren’t you glad you have all this information? 🙂
As I pulled into the rather full parking lot, I found a spot and sat in my car for a bit to gather myself. On the way into the store I told myself I would just pick up my prescriptions, get some cat food, and return home. A complete conversation played in my mind until I finally settled on ….. “just do it, buy all the things on the list”. Big baby was thrown around in my mind as well as, April, Rebel Warrior. (She hasn’t been around for a while)
I usually park the furthest from the store. Not because I don’t want other car doors dinging my doors, I do it because backing up a Mini Cooper is difficult when parked next to minivans or other large
boats cars. Another anxiety trigger.
Wouldn’t you know it? A big Hummer parked next to me. It must have been car intimidation because they could have parked in one of the many other spots. I backed out without running over anyone or having a car plow into me because they couldn’t see me.
I had one little incident in the canned fruit aisle regarding pineapple chunks vs pineapple tidbits. I needed the tidbits and couldn’t find them. I decided I would just cut up the chunks to make tidbits. When I got home I discovered I bought one can of chunks and one can of slices…..curses! Meh, even though it felt so at the time, it’s not the end of my world. Now that I look back, I find this incident rather comical. If I can’t laugh at myself, I will never make it to the other side of darkness and worry. Go ahead, you can laugh too. 😀
