A difference

We go to a tiny church that's still classified by our diocese as a 'mission.'. Mexicanjumpingbain and limabain's soccer coach is a minister at a bigger church in town and invited us to come to Wednesday night church.

Have I mentioned how much the baintrain eats? On a regular basis I cook a dozen eggs for breakfast, or 2 hamburgers per boy. As I've mentioned, we have a garden and friends with gardens so in the summer I don't have to grocery shop as frequently. Ten days is pushing it, though.

So, tonight I added 2 and 2 and they equalled a grocery trip while the boys were at church.

Yes, I did feel a bit guilty as I sped away to do the shopping.

It's one of the differences between having 1 or 2 children and 4...if you have reason to believe they will be well taken care of by another caring person...you get to grocery shop ALONE!

I always jump at the chance to grocery shop alone as I never have the chance to go with just one or even 2 of mine. It's all or nothing it seems. I never consider it a 'break' however because I consider grocery shopping(the way I do it, reading ingredients and such) as work of the stay at home mom kind. Still, I cannot lie and say that on the rare occasion that I get to go grocery shopping alone, I feel just a wee bit refreshed afterward and there is a sense of freedom euphoria while I am doing it. Like "Hey look at me, I can walk through the glassware aisle! yahoo!"
