Christmas Eve and Food Shopping

So as usual the holidays have snuck up on me despite all me plans and I found myself in the food store today with my kids. The parking lot was a zoo, as can be expected since there is a Walmart in the same shopping center. As I pulled in I prepared myself for the possibility of long lines, bitchie people, empty selves and whinie kids however that wasn't the case at all. The store was fairly empty, the selves were stocked and people seemed cheerful. My kids even behaved, they even helped. The nine year old pushed the cart and the four year helped me pick out crackers and fruit. There was no line to check out and we breezed right through. I felt a sense of calm come over me...until we stepped out of the store and into the parking lot. WOW, people are crazed!!! Everyone is doing the Parking Lot Rodeo, beeping, yelling, using hand gestures. What a great way to spread the Holiday Spirt...cursing out an elderly couple because they took to long to pull out!!!! Merry Christmas!!!!
