Wow, I'm sure I'm not the only one here who braved WalMart the day before Thanksgiving am I? I've known for days that I needed to make this jello salad but of course waited until the busiest grocery shopping day of the year to go get the stuff. I got to the store and parked near the end of the row, not even trying to get a good parking spot because there were cars lined up waiting. I could not for the life of me remember where to find cranberries, so I'm walking up and down aisles, weaving in and out. People are not watching where they are going and I'm so glad I just had a hand basket instead of a cart or I would not have been able to get through. Luckily I managed to find everything I need, and in record time since I didn't have the kids with me. And can I say just how much I love self-checkouts? The other checkouts had long lines but the self-checkouts were moving fast so I got out pretty quick. And then I had to wait a few minutes to pull out of my parking spot since I was right near the entrance to WalMart and everyone was driving in while I was trying to leave. Next year I really need to remember to grocery shop at least a few days earlier.
