The snow cometh ...

HAHA!!! They are calling for about TWO FEET of snow here, and this is after we already had about 18 inches the week before Christmas (plus the couple of times since that we've gotten 2-4 inches). I haven't seen this frequency or quantity of snow fall in New Jersey at ALL in the 11 years that I've lived here (well, except that one time when I was preggo with my 2nd--I think, might have been my 3rd--where we got about 2 feet, but that was only ONE instance). How exciting.

Anyway, I've been slacking on my task of keeping my home well stocked with items we use every day. You know ... bread and milk?? And WHAT does everyone do when a snow storm is coming?!? Run to the store for bread and milk!! HA! Awesome!! So, off Mr. Raz and I went, to the store of doooooooommmmmmm-uh! *queue doomie sounding music*

Mannnnnn ... what a MESS. They were out of the bread I like (at least I was able to find suitable HFCS free alternatives) and the deli counter line was 30 people deep! It took well over an hour to purchase: 1 pack of kaiser rolls, 4 loaves of bread (no, I'm not crazy, 1 whole grain for me, 2 white wheat for the kids and Mr. Raz, and since Mr. Raz was present, he had to have a loaf of pumpernickel rye that will prob end up going half eaten and get stale), 4 packages of assorted deli items, 1 can of cocoa mix, and 2 boxes of crackers. That was IT. AND!!! ANDDDDDD!!!! There was a guy 2 people ahead of me in the self check line that was trying to SCAN his bananas. SCAN!!! Honestly, in this day and age, if you don't know how to work the self check, go to a line with a human! And no, you don't have to have ever worked as a cashier to know how to use one of those things ... I never have. (/high falutin' rant)

We also ran to our obscenely named warehouse club (BJ's, teehee) ... store for milk, water, juice pouches (damn school v-day party, and they need everything by Monday, and I don't expect to be able to get to a store between now and Monday morning) and pizzas. It was busier than I'd ever seen it! Not unbearable though. We were in and out of there in about 20 min. Not that anyone cares, but I figured if I was going to say I needed milk at the beginning of the post and then have it look like I didn't actually get it ... yeah, soooo ....

Anywhooo ... grocery store = ridiculous mess. Oy.

And the most fun is that I have to work from 6 till 9 tonight. Ugh. DNW. AND, our brand new $1000 bed that is supposed to be delivered TOMORROW will have to be postponed to the end of next week. BOOO!!! My neck hurts so damn BAD! I NEEEED this beeedddddd!!! *grumble grumble*

I hate when I ramble like this because I never know when or how to end, soooo ...




  1. The snow is supposed to hit me, Central NJ, around 9pm tonight. Wonder if it really will because every time they are all SNOW SNOW SNOW I get

  2. It started snowing here in south Jerz around 5:30. It's really coming down, but hasn't yet covered the mall parking lot (oh joyous job at the mall, LOL!). They said that we'd be hit much harder than central and north points, oy! Usually our location respective to the major waterways keeps us from getting too much, but NOT this year!!
