Groceries.. and sleep...

Well. Last night was good.. but short. Night before last I decided it was time to try to sleep through the night. No more midnight feeds. Gwyn had lots of supper and snack and could make it through to morning. Well, I felt terrible as Gwyn sobbed for an hour and a half. She then went off to sleep! Slept through until 8:30am. NICE.

We then had a good morning just hangin' about. James had not slept well. Gwyn and I did Canora groceries on our own. I will tell you now, I will not be doing any grocery shopping in Canora. For what I got, I could have gotten in Wadena, with exceptional service. Not left feeling like I should have just driven to Superstore in Yorkton as the service was about the same, if not worse. Ok, ok. I will tell you the story. I went, got a good cart load of groceries. Now, I do believe that their carts must be small or something... as I didn't put much in and it was full. Gwyn being tired, was a handful. So I got most my groceries pushing the cart with one hand and holding Gwyn and entertaining her with the other. So, cart loaded full. Off to the til. Well, not so bad you have to put your groceries on the belt. That is normal. That didn't get me. No, got my groceries on there. Got rung though. The teller just tossing the bags to the end of her counter. I figured ok.. cuz Gwyn is in the cart she is just waiting til I get the cart to the end of the counter... Gwyn still not sitting in the cart at this point my purse is in the seat. So, she finishes ringing me through, gives me my receipt and starts ringing in the next old gent. Ok.. So, I start putting groceries in the cart. Struggling with Gwyn. The old gent is rung through his 3 bags and off he goes. I am throwing the last of my groceries on top of the cart just to get the frak out of there! The next lady in line, asks "are you going to manage?" I smile. "yeah, think I will" the teller says "She's a mom, she can manage." WHY ON GODS GREEN EARTH do some people think just because your a mom, you must be SUPERWOMAN? Really. She actually said that!!! So, now I will not be shopping in Canora for groceries. If I can't get it here in Margo, Wadena or rip to Yorkton or Regina I guess I can live without it! I did manage. But a little more help, sure would have been nice! Yes, Mom's usually can handle it.. but they certainly appreciate a hand once in awhile. A large load of groceries at a store where most other of the same name would pack them in your cart and help you out to your car, even load them into your car. I was very very disappointed in that Co-op. So, lesson learned. I am done ranting about that now.

So, last night I get Gwyn to sleep about... oh 10 to 10:30pm. Put her in her bed. She sleeps there about an hour.. or so. Then up into my arms, then I take her to the big bed at about 11:30pm. I don't want to change too much all at once.. "they" say it isn't good. So, off to sleep, just fine. I come back to my knitting until.. ooh midnight. Crawl into bed. Gwyn sleeps right through, until 5:30 am. We have been up ever since.... OH my... yes. I am fine.. but that was an early one!! I am a little tired.. but I will make it.. I have been much more tired than this, on more interrupted sleep. So I think I will take it.. A little wee bit later than 5:30am sure would be nice.. will see how we make out tonight!!!
Catch you all later!!

I have run into situations like that as well. I won't go to a resturant in town because of a completely clueless server.

One of the best things about the Wadena Co-op is that they not only open up another till the moment there are more than two customers in a lineup at any of the other tills, but they pack your groceries, insist on pushing your cart out to your vehicle, and then they unload it into your vehicle for you. All with a smile and a pleasant word. Every single time.
