How easy it is to excite me these days...

I have a confession to make.

Do you know what sent me over the moon today?

What made me so giddy with excitement that I just had to call several friends to tell them all about it?

Wait for it, wait for it......


I got my weeks worth of groceries delivered right into my home and placed on the kitchen floor all neatly bagged and ready to be put away. AND, I never set foot in a store!!!

Okay, I know it's a little anticlimactic, but this is what I get excited about now a days!! With full time work, being a mom, and wife, taking care of the house, after school activities, outdoor chores, forcing myself to go to the gym at 5:30 in the morning, my time is very valuable people!! Any way that I can make more time for myself and spend less of it doing things I hate, calls for a celebration baby!

I should have gone grocery shopping over the weekend but we were just too busy. By the time Tuesday rolled around we were desperate! I had to work all day, then the athlete had soccer practice and the princess had a softball game right after, so I knew I would not be going to the store later that night either.

Then I remembered about this grocery delivery service that one of my friends absolutely swears by and decided, ah what the hey, I'll give it a shot.

I logged on to Peapod online grocery shopping, and withing 15 minutes had my own account, grocery shopped, picked a delivery time for 7-9am the next morning and...

Batta boom, the grocery shopping was done man!!!

At 8am this morning, the friendly delivery driver carried them all into my house and within ten minutes I had them put away. What normally takes me 2 plus hours from start to finish, took all of 25 minutes!!! Saving me precious time!!

I think I'm in love!
