The Weekend and Wal-Mart

Jason arrived back in Hunts-Vegas last Friday night. We decided to go and spend some time with my parents on Saturday. They just got their pool finished and Abby Kate and Joshua were wanting to see their Nannie and PawPaw. Saturday night, we arrived home around 11:00 (the kids slept most of the way home). Joshua had a horrible night! This means that Momma and Daddy did not get much sleep either (more so Daddy than Momma). Sunday morning was rough! We went to church and came home immediately. (We actually made it home before noon). Abby Kate and Joshua went down for their naps and Jason and I also got in a nap. I don't know how long Joshua would have slept, but we finally woke him up at 5:00 to leave for the Senior High Devo.

Yesterday, I decided that we needed to make the dreaded trip to Wal-Mart. (I really do like Wal-Mart, when I have the time to shop). Jason did not feel like making the trip with me, so we struck a deal. I would go to Wal-Mart, if he would keep both kids and give them their baths. Jason usually does this anyways, but if I venture off to Wal-Mart without him, I usually try to lighten his load by taking one child with me. I got all of my groceries and proceeded to checkout. The lines were so long! They only had 3 registers open (meaning the light was on) and there were 5 lines backed up to the gift wrapping section. Why??? Why do they have 30+ registers to only have 3 "officially" open at 8:00 at night? Why would a store this size only find it necessary to have 3 workers checking out all of Huntsville? I ended up waiting in line over 25 minutes. I do not understand this! I am outraged! Why do I keep going back to this horrible Wal-Mart? Enough!

Wal-Mart is of the devil. You should avoid it at all costs. It's especially Hades-esque come Christmas time. Little old ladies cutting you off with their shopping carts to grab the last Tickle Me Elmo for their snot-nosed grandkids....no thanks, I'll pass.

I share in your experience and frustration. It's the same in Lebanon -30 cash registers only 3 are open and 2 of those are express lines - less than 20 items! If I had less than 20 items in my cart I WOULDN'T BE AT WAL-MART!!!

I don't know about Huntsville - but I steer clear of this place on the weekends. It's like the possessed come down out of the hills and patronize Wal-mart. They will drag their offspring with them like at 10pm and the little ones have had enough. Then the parents start wacking and cursing their whining kids.. No wonder the kids are whining screaming. I want to whine and scream too.

This place does not bring out the best in any of us!!!!!!!

This blog seems to be turning into a repository for unbecoming photos of yours truly. I know the pic of me & Jr. is cute and all, but I take umbrage with you using my image without my consent. Maybe I'll drum up some pics of you from the night our kids were born! Hmmm.....

Sunny-I don't understand the checkout thing either...at one of the wal-marts here, they don't even have the self checkouts yet...yuck. Sometimes that's just easier.

Jason--I think it would be fun to see some blackmail pictures of Sunny! :) Sorry Sunny.

So, Jason, are you saying that the pics from the night that I gave birth to our two kids are "unbecoming"?

I'd watch it buddy! Your skating on very thin ice.
