I Know This is Getting Old, But...

I decided last night that I was probably overreacting to Wal-Mart considering the time I went in and it was so horrible it was still during Christmas break. Wal-Mart is always terrible during Christmas season, what did I expect?

I packed the little boys up and braved it. Got a good parking place. Calmly entered the store. Made my return. No really awful moments.

And then I remembered why I don't go there anymore!

I won't extrapolate on all the stuff I've been saying, I'm just going to reiterate how much I hate it.

Yesterday I went to half a dozen stores and did half a dozen annoying errands and came home in a great "I conquered it!" mood.

Today I spent 45 minutes in Wal-Mart and I'm not sure my blood pressure has returned to normal yet.

My sister heard me rant about it just after I left the store. She gave me grief because I used to rant about people who ranted about Wal-Mart.

I know.

I can't make myself be the person I was two years ago, I guess. Because I've given in the the dark side.

Sis said she'd buy my coffee for me to keep my blood pressure low.

I went on Monday and was disappointed with how they have scaled back selection....not to mention all the other issues....

I used to, smuggly, say to people "well SOME of us have to shop at Walmart, because we can't AFFORD to buy everything at Target".

Some of us are just gonna have to get used to scratchy toilet paper, 'cuz this mama can't stand Walmart either.

Can I let you in on a little secret? Go to the Walmart Neighborhood Market at 75th & Neiman.

Seriously, that's about the only Walmart I'll go to anymore. They carry what you'd find at about any grocery store, but the prices are the same as the bigger stores.

You can get you coffee "WHILE" you shop at target. Not that I shop much.
