Walmart Cashiers- my unsung heros

It's no surprise I heart Walmart. I felt like I won the lotto when I find out there was a Super Walmart about 4 miles from my new home in Orlando.  If you live in the area, you might have seen me.  I'm usually the mom with one screaming kid in the shopping cart, and another running all over the store picking everything she could find.  As a mom I've come up with strategies to make the trip a bit less chaotic. I usually let my two year old pick up a toy he likes and hold on to it. This pretty much is the only way to keep him from screaming. He'll usually look at it, inspect it and think that he is going home with it. I'm just happy I get a couple of quiet minutes to pick up most of the items on my list. Once I head to checkout, I have a plan.  I usually signal to the cashier to please hold the t-o-y (clearly spelled out) under the register because I wasn’t getting it.  Now I have done this more times than I can count, and to this day I have yet to meet an uncooperative Walmart cashier. They are even quite helpful and discreet about it.  I then wonder, could they also be moms? or Are they just feeling sorry for a mom who looks in distress?  Either way I'm always very appreciative and thank them. They have no idea the money and grief they save me.

So in a moment of gratitude, I dedicate this post to you, the cashiers at Walmart that help this mom keep her sanity and money in her pocket.

Thank you!

Comfort Jolt!

Just the other day I'm driving from my local Starbucks to pick up my daughter from preschool. I was a bit early, therefore able to whole heartedly enjoy my cup of jolt. I starting thinking what is it about this little cup of coffee that gives me so much comfort. For Gods sake we're still in a recession, why am I spending money for coffee. I then I got it!

You see, this has been quite a busy last year.  I moved several times and yearn some consistency. It seems that the only constant in my life besides pampers has been Starbucks. Whether I in the Bronx, Long Island, Conneticut or my new home in Orlando, theres always one thing that I can count on.  So while for others its just another cup of coffee, for me its a lil more than that. I some comfort jolt.
So for me, I've figured out the obsession.

Happy Monday!

My new homes best feature...

So I'm still settling in, trying to adapt to this Orlando lifestyle. So far I likes it but what I LUV even more is my pantry. My pantry is mom sized! I can actually step in, close the door behind me and hide from the lil ones. So I have stashed my goodies (twinkies and all) on the fourth self on the right. Now when it's time to take a break and have some comfort I step into my pantry. It's the lil things!
