I am a wife and stay at home mom to two darling girls, Whitney and Ellison. We are an active duty Army family constantly on the move. we currently reside in Iowa closer to our families. Using the blog to document our lives and a few of my thoughts!
I go to Wal-Mart once a week, mostly for groceries. First, I will say that I love Wal-Mart. You can get practically all you need from one place and the prices are low. Wade hates going to Wal-Mart. He doesn't like people in a crowded place. I love watching people at Wal-Mart. Mostly you will have the people who just want to get what they need and get out. Then you will have those people that sit and stare at the products on the shelf forever, wondering which one is the better option. Get out of my way, I don't have time for that! I admit I used to do this occasionally before I had Whitney, now it is get what I need quickly and get out. Now I get home and unload my goods and wonder how some things even got in my cart. Then you have those people who have wild screaming kids and they yell at them and threaten abuse. These shouts usually have to do with a kids behind. "Get your a@@ over here!" or "I'll whoop your bottom!" And people love babies, especially older people and they LOVE to talk to you about your baby. An old man today told me Whitney was going to be the third woman president. Kids love babies too. A young boy saw Whitney and said, "Hey baby, I love you baby!" Very cute. Today I saw a lady in a UNI t-shirt, so I chatted with her for a few seconds, saying I graduated from there, and found out she used to work there. You are never too far from home in a military community. You never know who or what you will encounter in Wal-Mart. I love it!! OH! And I must mention there are those people that seem to be on the same shopping pace as you, you meet them in every isle and you're trying to buy the same stuff.
