I guess I HAVE lost weight :-))))).
The other thing is that I found something today that was NOT in this store the previous times I went. IDK if they were out or just didnt have it but as I walked to that aisle JUST to see,I spoke the words out loud. "One day Im going to find grits here", AND I DIIIIIIIIIIIIIID. I got two containers just in case.I think I wanted them so badly because they werent here.IDK know whether to have breakfast first or to make grits n gravy. hmmmmm,decisions decisions.
Back from the store with hurting feet, $ gone, and nothing I really want to eat tonite, I realize that for two people we will probably be spending 1000 dhm on food monthly and that doesnt include eating out.Grocery prices are about the same,cheaper on some things.Differences are that the quantities are different and the choices you may be used to arent here.You end up eating out a lot,which Im not used to. I guess its about on par with what we were paying at home after going back to grab this or that between shopping days but at least at home we had all the fresh veggies we wanted.Who knew we would miss vegetables.
and WHY DO THEY HAVE THE TURNIPS BUT NOT THE GREENS?!?!?!?!?
But after today,I shall not give up hope. This is the UAE, and anything can and does happen here!
