Some months/ weeks / days
I ordered groceries last night. Was really happy about being able to do so. They just arrived. About $80-100 worth is missing. They just didn't have it. And no one called me to ask me about substitutions, etc. Some of it is house keeping stuff like kitty litter. But some of it is/was not only food stuffs, but food stuffs I'd chosen specifically as birthday treats. After all my negotiating and dealing with my new food limits.
So yay food. And so much boo and WTF to again not having 'something special' along with knowing that yeah, I will be having to order groceries again awfully soon.
Also, when I saw how little I got for what I actually paid - it hit me all over again, how the price of groceries has slowly creeped up and up, 25 cents here, 30 cents there, until now, stuff is a dollar and more expensive, per item than it was LAST year. But hey, Wall Street is doing GREAT. So the economy MUST be beter. Great Recession? Peh. Pish. That's BEEN over, if it ever was.
