There were a couple of very specific things I was looking for today: a certain vitamin and my favorite teeth whitener. As much as Walmart ticks me off (because of the way they treated Ben) I like my 10% discount there on non food items. Long story of why I still get the discount, but basically Ben still "works" for them until he can give a two weeks notice when he comes home in March -- meanwhile I still save there.
So today, I loaded my little hommies into the car and off we went. They love Walmart... mostly because of the subway there -- the only time they will actually eat healthy food... typical. When we got there, we made a b-line to the pharamacy department to find what I needed.
They didn't have either of the items I wanted. Bummer.
Next stop, Walgreen's.
Sam pooped in the car. (No worries, he stills wears a diaper).
Oh, well, he'll just have to deal with it while we run into the store and see if they have what I need. If not, oh well, we'll just go home.
Walgreens had what I wanted! BOTH items! Woo Hoo!
The best part, that totally made my day was when we were checking out. The lady behind the cash register asked to see my ID and when I flipped open my wallet to show her she saw that I was a military wife. Just as we were about to leave, she grabbed my arm and looked me right in the eyes and said: "On behalf of Walgreen's, tell your husband "Thank you!" I didn't expect the tears in my eyes when she said this. I guess I feel that my husband's sacrifice is ours too. I can't tell you how much that moment meant to me.
