We are expecting real “OMG-the-world-is-coming-to-an-end!” snow, tonight and tomorrow – about 10 -12 inches. I feel like I should rush to the store and buy stuff but I look around and I can’t see anything that we’re nearly out of and that we will have to have in the next day or two. On Christmas Eve we were talking about people rushing to the store and buying out all the bread and milk and one of my sisters-in-law remarked that she didn’t understand this impulse to buy bread and milk when it snows, that if she was going to be snowed in for three days she was going to stock up on Twinkies and Ho-Hos. Makes sense to me.
We are running rather low on peanut butter so I’ve been trying to convince myself that I should be a responsible, proactive person and go buy some even though we are not critically low yet. I don’t even have to go all the way to town anymore. There’s a new little store on the highway a few miles from my house that has most of the basic essentials of life. Yay! Anyway, if I decide to go buy peanut butter and I just happen to notice something in the Twinkies/Ho-Hos food group maybe… But no, the fact that I might be tempted is another reason not to go to the store.
Actually, I’m not a big fan of Twinkies and Ho-Hos myself but I’m sure I would see something tempting. It seems a waste (not very “green”) to drive five miles just for a jar of peanut butter.
