    How I Cope With Grocery Shopping

    The thing is, getting in and out as quickly and simply as possible. So I have a map of my store---which aisles have what---and I have my recipes, meal plan, shopping list on my computer, so when I make a meal plan for the week, it automatically makes the grocery list. Then it...

    Wish I Didn't Have To Do This

    There are good reasons to p*ss off your son

    and there are bad reasons to p*ss off your son. And then there is the grocery shopping. I swear I spend every minute in the store thinking about ways to kill my father, so no one can ever know. Once I run out of patience there will be no way back. :(

    I know a lot of guys absolutely hate shopping, especially the groceries. But I enjoy it. Probably because I like finding bargains and getting things on the spur of the moment.
