The Monday Peeve

Check it out here:

Paula has an opinion about supermarket shopping that I believe so many of us have…the placement of the items.

For me I wonder why marketing has so much control over the supermarket. Today, walking in I am inundated by baked goods. Tons of brownies, cookies, cakes, donuts, you name it, they had it. Then the fresh fruit and veggies are all tucked in the back corner of the store. Obviously, this is to sell the junk food…it helps keep the world chunky. No wonder no one wants to bring kids into the market anymore.
So then, almost every end-cap is a junk food or candy product. I am trying to lose weight. How am I supposed to shop without having bad cravings for everything in sight that is not good for me? It is almost like staying healthy is way too much work. It is definitely too expensive. Does anyone win?

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge

I have had so much going on lately that I have had the urge to give up on my pastimes, my hobbies, the things I enjoy. I think it is my body’s and mind’s reaction to stress. Sort of a depressive state. I realized tonight that I won’t ever really live in my home again. I am moving on…not necessarily my choice but something I must do. I know I have so much to be thankful for, that I feel guilty feeling so down. I often wonder if people feel the way that I do; like my life is always in some sort of limbo. I mean, does life ever feel comfortable, like there isn’t anything that has to get done?

Barb, where did you get that website from?

Which one?

You know, the one about sex after 50.

Jane, that was from that Dr. Barr, the doctor who rights the advice column for the Times.

Dr. Barr writes a column?

Yeah, do you know him?

Her. Dr. Barr is a her. You really think a male doctor cares about sex after 50?

Isn’t that the only thing men think about?
