The temperatures soared into the upper fifties today making for a gorgeous December day. It almost felt warm and we are predicted to get into the high seventies the next few days. Record breaking weather. So much for my snow I have been chomping at the bit for.
Lunch time found me down at the shopping center. I ran into my mother who was buying a box of Cheez-its as they were on sale at the dollar store. She had just left her hairdresser that is also in this same shopping center.
"What are you doing down here without your car?" she asked, looking surprised.
"I walk down here most days to hang out," I said.
I realized my parents have no earthly idea what I do with my days and they barely care. They think I sit in my house all day in front of this computer.
"How are you on groceries?" my mother then asked.
"I have three frozen pizzas and one microwave meal left."
Mom left me to go buy groceries for me and I scurried home so I would be there when she arrived. It was about a thirty minute walk. I hope she remembers to buy me cokes. I can go without eating, but can't go without my caffeine fix. It is very nice of her to do that, too. My mother always buys me foods I like to eat and an eclectic mix of microwave meals that is like sticking your hand into a grab bag. You never know what you are going to get. Bless her heart.
