Yes, I had to. My regular grocery shopping day is Thursday, but since I went to the doctor yesterday, I decided to wait till today. I hate grocery shopping, so I love putting it off! I'll never go on Friday afternoon again. They were completely out of a couple of things - not even stragglers left on the shelf.
As much as I hate grocery shopping, I love "just me" shopping! I have a little stash of fabric pieces that I've made other things out of, and there's 1 1/2 yards here, 1 yard there. I decided I'd make an apron or two out of my scraps, but I didn't have a pattern. So I sacrificed and went to Wal Mart this evening! I got my pattern and looked at some other ones, but all I bought was the one pattern and the rest of the stuff that the grocery store didn't have. And some chocolate chips. A certain Daddy wanted chocolate chip cookies tonight. Beth is making them now. She's my budding cookie-maker, and I'm glad to give that job to her. I love to bake, but only things that can be put in one pan and baked all at once, like cakes, cupcakes, pies. Cookies drive me bonkers; you're not free from them for 2 hours! LOL
Beth's fingers are looking better today; the cortizone is working. My thumb is really sore though. I think the medicine is working this time. The wart is swollen and red like it's going to "fester up" as my Grandma would say. I keep trying to get the kids to feel how hot it feels, but they look away and go "Gross!" LOL I'm watching it closely since I've never had a wart problem before. The doctor said it would boil up, maybe rupture? I can't remember. But it sure does hurt! You never realize how much you use your thumb until it's sore!
