So. Husband and I were discussing the Swine Flu yesterday. It was a hot topic since Little Bit had a fever of 102.7 Friday night. While our street was flooding. While S was visiting in the garage with a couple of teenagers (they were seniors in high school) who had flooded out their car on our street and were waiting for the boy's dad to come get them. While we had rabbits in the bathroom pooping everywhere because I had to rescue them from the rain because they are only 6 weeks old and one of them was sitting under a drip and the other one was stuck outside under the ramp and couldn't figure out what to do and Sweetheart was worried about them.
Whew. To think I used to drive home from work on Fridays and think, "What should we go do tonight?"
Well, she didn't have the swine flu. Just a virus and she's all better now. Husband said he was listening to Michael Savage Friday and I have to say he had a good point about the whole swine flu thing. You may disagree with everything Michael Savage says because goodness knows he's opinionated, but this one thing was quite logical. Among other things he said if you wanted to protect yourselves from the swine flu....eat at home. He had some points about illegal aliens (from Mexico, where I live that's where they would be from) working at restaurants. Hmm. Good point.
So that made me decide to run to Kroger after church instead of grabbing fast food like I would have normally on Sunday nights. But which Kroger to go to? We have 2 that are near enough our home. I remembered that the "safer" one of the two, the "nicer" one if you will, had a really bad robbery last weekend. One of the moms from my homeschool group told us about it. Her brother-in-law was the man hit in the face with the butt end of a rifle by the robbers. Another mom from our group was in the store with her 3 year old while the robbery occurred. It was a bank robbery, so I made the quick decision to go to the other Kroger, since it does not have a bank inside.
There were no baskets when we got there. None. I was pretty surprised since the parking lot didn't seem that crowded. So Sweetheart and I lugged those hand held baskets around the store. The checker told us 2 local grocery stores had been stealing all of Kroger's grocery carts. My goodness! Where can I go that's safe and germ free???
Oh yes. Home. Which is where we'll be eating, thank you very much.
And later I'll have to tell you about those water disasters. Which, oddly enough, had nothing to do with the flooding on our street two weekends in a row!
