Shopping for Christmas Dinner Gone Awry

After a long day at the doctor's office (multiple visits) and having to deal with sick, clingy children, I decided to take care of my shopping for Christmas dinner this evening. I thought I could go to Target and get everything on my list. When I showed up, this is what I found.

The refrigerated section was completely empty!!! No turkeys, no meat, no milk, no cheese, no eggs - NOTHING!

I guess the power went out on almost all of their refrigerated items. They had to throw it all away. I watched as one guy scanned each package of wilted, soggy celery and toss it into a trash bin. Then I saw this man wheeling away the only turkeys that were left in the entire store.

And, of course, I stood there defeated, taking pictures of the debacle with my iphone. I'm sure the Target staff members were just loving that. So much for Target, even though it is my absolute favorite place to shop. I gathered a few items and then went to another grocery store. I swear this stuff only happens to me.

When it rains it pours! Seems like it is really raining crap on you right now. So sorry - the one good thing is it should only get better from here on out.

That is un-freaking-believable. Why is it that essential equipment always goes out at the worst times - not that there is a good time, know, right before a holiday is definitely no good. Ours usually waits until 5:00 on a Friday (somehow it knows!) so I can pay a tech double time for working outside of his normal work week. Oh well, at least Target has deep pockets!

Oh dear! Well hopefully you found what you needed. Merry Christmas! Enjoy the first with George!
