Yesterday’s post brought up this suggestion:
“...to just go in for 1-2 stops at a time. Do the 1-2 stores and head home. Quick and easy so it's not too much. 2 days later do another one or two.”
A good suggestion but...
Then there is the one and only grocery store in town. Every time I am in there the word ‘pathetic’ comes to my mind as I wander up and down the aisles in a futile search for what I am looking for. To be fair, they try. It must be difficult to stock everything for a small town’s needs. And too, remember it is a combination of grocery and a hardware store. What can one expect?
Plus there is a high mark-up on goods. So I hit the two dollar stores first not just to save a few pennies but many times a couple dollars on a single item. And there is the fact the dollar stores having a lot of empty shelves. I have to visit both. Now I am up to three stops just for grocery items alone.
Lastly there is me. I am in solitude for days and weeks. I love my solitude. Going into town is an effort for me to be around so much going on. I am anxious to return to home. It isn’t so bad when traveling for I am exposed to people more then, but put me in the desert all winter long and changes in me take place. Being alone can be dangerously addictive. Once you realize how peaceful it is you want nothing more.
I appreciate you comment and suggestion though. Thank you.
