Yesterday was such an awesome day. I slept in (for the LAST time), and then worked out (with my tennies!!). I came home and because we had one heck of a storm here, the lawn needed to be cut, so I mowed the front and the back yards, and then weeded and hedged. I enjoy this kind of work, and it was BEAUTIFUL outside, not that steamy, humid, yuckiness that Michigan endured last week. And then I did something that I wanted to do all summer....I laid in our hammock! For an hour! It was so relaxing! Then I had to come in and get cleaned up because I was taking a friend to the airport.

On the way home from the airport, I decided to stop at Walmart, the new SUPER Walmart, to get a few things on the cheap. Here's where the day got....shall we say interesting? I don't mind Walmart at all (up until now), but truth be told, I'm more of a Target person. However, the store was new, so I just decided to go. Good reason, eh? The parking lot was hell. There were people and carts everywhere, NOT MOVING OUT OF THE WAY ON PURPOSE (the people, not the carts). I swear they were looking at the cars waiting for them and took their time because of it. That should have been my first clue to get the hell out of there. I walked into the store and it all went downhill fast. There were too many people to begin with, no place to push a cart, people cutting people off with a cart, messy isles, and did I mention rude people?? Then I got my measly 3 items, and notice that there are like 6 checkout lanes open, and the lines are OUT TO THERE. Are you kidding me?? It was all I could do to stand in line FOR 25 MINUTES not to leave my precious items (conditioner, face wash, and envelopes) behind. And when I actually got to the cashier, I didn't even get a hello. She immediatly started scanning my stuff without even looking me in the face. SO STINKING RUDE!!! I have worked retail and as a cashier....hello manners!! So when this happens, I ALWAYS say hello so that I can at least be acknowledged. I think it killed her to say hi, but that's all I got. That and the bill. I just couldn't wait to get out of there. The whole experience was awful. It's like everyone in that store was in slow, cranky motion. From now on, no matter how cheap Walmart may be, I'm giving my money to Target.

I didn't let this ruin my day. When I got home I went right back to relaxing, but I can tell you, Wal-fart officially sucks. And I WON'T be back.

I hate Wal-Mart too and avoid it as much as possible!!
I am sad for you that it was your last time to sleep in ~ been there, done that! I am finally getting adjusted to 5:30 am again! urgh!
I am extremely jealous of the hammock! I had one at my old house under some big, old trees - no place for a hammock here! bummer!
