Walmart Again

August 9th, 2019 at 01:15 pm

I went back to Walmart, because something just wasn't right. I looked up my order online and it showed that it was picked up! I took the documentation in to the store, and their records showed that it never arrived. I asked to cancel the order, since I didn't trust that I would ever get it. That was quite an ordeal, because they had to force the refund -- since I supposedly had the item, I was supposed to return it! What a mess. The good part was that the people involved were as nice and apologetic as could be, and quite frustrated with the system themselves. I won't try to order again until I get paid.

I was reimbursed $12. I turned around and spent it on gelato -- not at Walmart, but at a cute local shop. I had promised gelato to my grandson all summer and today was my last chance to keep my promise.

My remote for the Amazon Fire Stick stopped working today. It stopped yesterday but I got it going again. Today, nothing worked. Rather than get a new one, I downloaded the app on my phone and that seems to be working fine.

I'm going to be making soup tomorrow. Chicken noodle soup and potato soup. It's not soup weather, but I have the ingredients, and soup will stretch my food supply. I also have a lot of Mexican mac & cheese that I can thaw in batches. I have about a half dozen eggs, a full container of oatmeal, a variety of frozen vegetables, two loaves of bread and a package of English muffins. Also, a half-box of Honey Nut Cheerios, plenty of almond milk, a big bag of shredded cheese and plenty of coffee. I think I'll be okay. There is plenty of cat food on hand, too.

I did a load of laundry today, and all the equipment seems to be working, and no gas smell!

    Glad there was no gas smell.

    Good idea to make soup. Unless it is horrifically hot, we eat soup during the summer and it is a good way to stretch the budget!

    Sorry about the slip!

    If you have a JCPenney near you, they should have slip shorts like that.

    I agree with you that it is weird to eat soup in the summer, but when you have the ingredients, it is handy to make and makes several meals. And you don't have to heat up the house a lot to heat it up for supper.
