The Grapes had Other Ideas...

...whew! Today has been a busy day of running around, shopping, and playing with my son. We had a lot of errands to do, which is never all that much fun when you're dragging an eight-month-old around from store to store. Now Charlie is a dream baby (and I'm not just saying that!) but even so, he does have his limits, as does his mommy! Both of us actually fared extremely well, the day was just hectic.

Picture this:

One's C.lub cart full to the brim with $350.00 worth of household necessities and food, one's C.lub cart filled to capacity with a car seat bound baby and his diaper bag and one mommy pushing/pulling both carts across the crowded parking lot, opposing the frigid winds toward the car. Do you need a nap yet because I certainly do! And of course it's only at times like this when Murphy's Law comes into effect. So there I was, loading the groceries into the trunk. I picked up the large plastic container of grapes and the lid came off, spilling grapes all over the other groceries, on the ground, and at the bottom of the cart. Definitely a frustrating moment and a nuisance to clean up, but not the end of the world, right?

Well then when I got home and finally had a chance to unload the car--well after 9:00, the grapes decided to jump ship once again, this time landing face down in a clump on our snow-covered driveway.I know it's hard to see the detail in this photo but man, grapes were everywhere! At that point I began to wonder if the cosmic universe was trying to tell me not to eat these grapes or something. If so, I decided not to heed the warning, cleaned up the grapes once again and brought them in for a soak in the sink. I had a hand full a few minutes ago and they were pretty good - I guess my frustration paid off in the end...

What a day!
