"Stop making fun of me, Joe…"

It's not that we were slacking off. On the contrary, we were at the LakeHouse at 7:30 a.m., this morning, doing projects while the electrician finished his work. We had breakfast and a late lunch there, before leaving and then capturing the gorgeous hawk in the post below. I was excited to have my first-ever ShopRite order DELIVERED after 5:00 p.m., as we relaxed and caught our breath. 

Joe thought it ridiculous to order groceries online. But hey, both Kelly and Dawn rave about the service. We needed lots of items; hadn't shopped properly since Christmastime. What a chore to lug heavy bags in zero temps. We tuned into Netflix and kicked back.

At 6:00 p.m., the phone rang. ShopRite calling. "We are out of this 'n' that. Would you like substitutes?" Sounded good, but they were out of the subs, too. Oookay. The store that services our area is not in Monti, but rather a 35-minute drive away. And they were still at that location? Well, my first-ever order was cancelled. Kaput.

Damn, Joe is still laughing about this idea. Something tells me he'll stop when he assumes the honor of filling my long list!

The height of luxury slipped through our fingers! C'est la vie, eh?!
