Grocery Shop

Before I get to the To Do for the day, I have something to say (dang, I can't help but rhyme all the time :p ). Anywho- It took me forever to gain followers. At times I would make posts and think, yeah, there's no one here to read them. But I kept posting and kept thinking of things I could do to draw in some people. I know a lot of my readers have a ton on their own blogs. But for me, the 32 I have is fantastic. So, I want to say, thank you everyone who follows my blog. Happy to have you here! :D

On to the To Do...

Grocery Shop

This isn't usually on the daily list, but it's on a list somewhere. We have to eat, therefore we grocery shop. I myself am back and forth on the subject-sometimes I enjoy going to the grocery store and other times I despise it. The days I can't stand the grocery stores, I have to force myself to go. There are times when I find inventive ways to make the most of what I do have just so I can put it off another day or two.

We must grocery shop though, so how do you do it? For those of us with kids, it is a little easier to make ourselves. Our kids are top priority and we cannot let them starve, so there's one motivator.

As a writer I have a few things I need when I'm writing. 1. I ALWAYS have something to drink, the entire time I'm writing (water, tea, coffee, juice, occasional Dr.Pepper). 2. I need to snack, it can be something as simple as a handful of peanuts every once and a while (there are times at night when I'm writing from 10 until 2, 3, 4 or even 5 in the morning). 3. Something sweet-you could say this goes along with a snack, but it's not really the same (for me). Sometimes I eat a piece of candy and sometimes it's a candy bar. For some reason, something sweet aids in my writing process.

So, that's another motivator. I know there are other writers out there who have things that they like to have on hand when they're writing, whether it's a certain drink or snack. Therefore, we need to grocery shop to insure we have those things.

Finally, what are we if we whither away due to lack of food/drink? What good would we be? That is the last motivator to help get Grocery Shop checked off the list. We may not like it, but we have to do it.

Happy Grocery Shopping :)

I usually have water and Hot Tamales nearby.

Good snack choice. Now I want some Hot Tamales...

I'm with Alex. Except instead of water it is pop (soda for those of you who say soda) and instead of Hot Tamales it is SweeTarts.

My one constant when I write is coffee! Day or night. Hot or cold. Coffee! :)
