I love love LOVE No Frills’ dollar sale!! I’ve been meaning to write this post for a week, but it’s been a busy few days. Anyway. Last Friday night Too Kool came up for a visit and offered to take us to get a few groceries. That quickly turned into that massive receipt (I had to blur it because I realized that you could read it if you zoomed in… haha) that I’m holding–remember, that is food for two people. TWO. haha! Well, I had spied in a flyer that No Frills was having a sale, so we opted to head there. When we found out how amazing the sale was we kind of went nuts.
For example, we got: cereal, cases of water, eggs, milk, bread, soup, pasta, meat, snacks, juice, and so much more for a dollar each. It was out of control. We filled the back of Too Kool’s vehicle and then had to haul it all into our apartment which is why I look a little tired in the picture. It was a LOT of food. We can now say that we have excellent food storage! haha
Want to know the best part? We only spent $150 and have enough food to eat for like… ever. Dollar sales, I heart you!!!!
I’m not sure if I express enough (or maybe I express it too much) how appreciative I am of the man that I married. As I was sitting at my desk tonight contemplating whether or not I should work on my French, I heard yelling and screaming. At first I thought that the Hubster was watching some bizarre movie in the bedroom, but as I moved closer to the door I realized that it was coming from our hallway. My heart just about stopped when I listened to what was going on… our neighbours were screaming at each other, and the woman (who I think is about my age) shrieked “LET ME GO” several times. I didn’t want to get directly involved as I know these things can turn ugly quickly so I didn’t open the door, but the Hubs called the police.
This went on for about another 15 minutes, followed by loud door banging and slamming. The police arrived shortly after, and the couple either had left or were refusing to answer their door. It just left me with such a sick feeling in my stomach… I couldn’t believe the language that they were using with each other and just the whole situation was frightening.
In any case, it left me with a flood of gratitude for my husband. He is kind, gentle, loving and so considerate of my feelings that he never even raises his voice to me, let alone argue like that. I know that not everyone ends up in an ‘ideal’ relationship, but no one deserves to be involved in what I heard go on tonight. I am truly blessed.
