It All Works Out in the End

Wouldn't you know it, I got up this morning at some terribly early hour to get some errands out of the way that I have been putting off for a few days. I ate breakfast, and was ready to go but when I went back to my room to get something, all of a sudden, I got very sleepy....

Back story:
Weekends are hell for me because my natural clock believes in going to bed at 2am and getting up around 10am.....I am what some call a night owl. During the week, I can reign this natural tendency in because I have to get up early.....but during the weekends, it gets messed up so Mondays are always a hard day for me but I am usually strong and will power my way through them.

The place I shop for groceries at is a 45 minute drive from where I live. I like to get an early start so that I can get there, do what I have to do and get back without wasting my entire day. They have the best prices so I make the drive every two weeks or so to stock up. Now that we have our upright freezer hooked up, I planned to get a big frozen load, which would reduce how often I have to make the drive....

So back to the timeline:
Where were we? Oh yeah....very sleepy... it is Monday and my will power is draining quickly while I eye my comfortable warm bed....I think to myself, I'll just lay down for a minute...won't be longer than that because I have things to do and my head will keep me from sleeping too long....I wake up 2 1/2 hours later.

So, as I am getting ready to leave, and cursing at myself under my breath for being so spineless, I check my email before leaving and realize that it is a National Holiday today. My grocery store closes on National Holidays, and if I had not fallen to sleep, I would have been there hours ago to find out that I had made the trip for no reason.....yeah for my I can do something else with my day.

What kind of weird grocery store closes on national holidays? I'm flabbergasted. Speechless even. :)
