To Whom It May Concern

Mondays are my errand days. I take my crew to the library, sometimes we go to the bank, and I always do my grocery shopping on Monday, so that we, you know, have food for an entire week.

Usually there is a little plastic bag on my front porch on Sunday evening. This little bag contains all the local store sale papers. These papers allow me to actually have a plan for what we will eat. Call 'em crazy but my family are just not fond of ground beef six nights in a row.

Sometimes, if I'm really on my "A" game, I can even match coupons to the sales. I know, how obsessive of me. It's weird, I know, but I actually get a little rush when my receipt tells me I saved 50% or more on my bill. We housewives have to get our thrills where we can, people.

You're probably wondering why I'm telling you all this. It's leading up to, as you might have already guessed, a complaint:

No sale papers on my porch yesterday or today! (And I say again: !!!)

How am I to plan my afternoon now? Stumbling around our ginormous grocery mecca with three girls in tow, no menu plan and only the end-of-the-month-grocery-budget on hand?

Not my idea of fun, folks.

I actually got mine this week. Go figure.

I was too tired today after Sunday to do any of the errands I had planned except the tour of our co-op. Since the co-op will be taking place on Mondays this is not a good omen.
