Today I had my Mother In Law take me to the grocery store for a few things we needed for the rest of the month.
My husband and I don't have a car so getting a ride for a stock up was essential.
Usually we walk but my back has been hurting something horrible if I walk more than a block (our grocer is five blocks away).
My husband didn't want me to go, citing the "retard zoo" of the current shopping situation.
I, on the other hand, thought it best to stock up considering our pantry was getting low.
I took one of those smaller sized carts into the store and filled it up with a few items that I know my notoriously picky husband will actually eat.
Most of the staples were sold out, but I made do with what was available.
Of course, no toilet paper, no tissues or wipes, no paper towels.
We have six rolls left in the house and that has to last for god knows how long.
My husband eats like there will be all the food in the world, where I think it's wiser to do a little preventative maintenance and eat sparingly.
We are both disabled, no car, limited funds and resources, and people are flooding into our neighborhood hoping to catch up on what Walmart lacks.
My husband doesn't believe me when I tell him the situation could get pretty rough for us in the near future and it's driving me up the wall.
I'm at my wits end and trying to just smile and pretend it isn't bothering me...the last thing we need is a fight.
That's my rant.
Any advice would be welcome.
