Yes, I would like some cheese with my whine.

It's been a long day.

It began at the gym. January is a really hard month for me at the gym. I really dislike the New Years resolution-ers hogging the machines and not having good "gym etiquette". I really hate to be a pessimist, but I am. And the reality is that in 1 month, 75% of these people won't be clogging the machines because they won't be coming to the gym anymore. I know, that's pretty hateful of me.

It's been a long day.

And then I've decided to drive all the way to the commissary for food. The commissary is about 25 minutes away and I don't usually go because there are 2 grocery stores less than a mile from my house. But I want to be more frugal this year and the commissary has meat way cheaper than grocery stores. By more than a dollar a pound. So I make out my meals, breakfast-lunches-and-dinners, for the next two weeks (something I have done for 7 years!) and head to the commissary. It's crowded and crazy and out of -are you ready for this?- MEAT! Yes, you read correctly. The grocery store is out of meat. ALL meat. Oh, they did have a whole bin of holiday hams. Now I remember why I'm not good at being frugal.

It's been a long day.

I hear ya girl! I went to the commissary the same day and thought it completely ridiculous that they were out of chicken. Seriously!!!

UGH! I dread going to the gym tomorrow because I *know* that every treadmill is going to be taken just in time for my workout. Like you said, just give it a month. ;-)

Now about your meat situation....I remember feeling very similar after Hurricane Dolly when WalMart was out of all meat, dairy, and frozen foods for well over a week afterwards. Really, WalMart!? UGH!
