Once a upon a time my visits to the grocery store were quite infrequent. With Pop’s arrival my weekly ritual became Saturday grocery shopping. Prior to that weekdays were for errands and Saturday’s were for sleeping in and leading a life of leisure with doing whatever I did or didn’t want to do.
I hadn’t been to the grocery store since a week prior to Pop’s passing. Well, today was my first time. Since I needed to go out for an appointment, I decided to maximize my time and not to wait for Saturday. Seems a little surreal only shopping for me. But, I did well with not bursting into tears all over the shopping cart and groceries. And, if I had, oh well. It’s just par for the course as every moment is its unique moment.
I thank Pop and am grateful for his presence and having me to consider healthier choices not only for him (which was very important to keep him up and going) but also for me. And, it was also easier on the pockets with less eating out for the both of us. I also appreciated having a purposeful routine that got me out to soak up some sun and breathe fresh air during these COVID times. Well, here’s to new normals and taking care of Kathryn. It’s a good habit to hold on to. Not sure about those Saturday errands tho. IJS! 🤷🏽♀️ Peace! PS: I was too lazy to go back upstairs to get my recyclable grocery bags. Something I also got good at to preserve the environment and rid myself of the shopping bag under the sink habit. #BeDoLove #FindYourZen #LivingOutLoud
