That's what I get for staying up all night to finish writing this title.

I went to the store on one hour's sleep. This is what I bought:

- 2 pounds of grapes that had a pretty picture on the bag
- 1 red bell pepper
- 24 panty liners (for the dog)
- 12 cans of dog food (also for the dog)
- 12 foil pouches of dog food (different variety than cans)
- 3 boxes of dental floss
- 2 bras
- 20 serving flat of Nanaimo Bars
- 1 bath mat with fishes on it
- 1 matching fish shaped toothbrush holder
- 1 Oprah Winfrey's magazine whatever it's called
- 3 packs of gum (same brand, different flavors)

This is what I had gone to the store to buy:

- butter

Note the discrepancy.

Dry toast, anyone?

Yeah, that's why Old Dog does all the grocery shopping at our house.

Eva Gallant said...

Sounds like my hubby's grocery shopping! lol

My grocery list differs from yours, but the results are very often the same.

randine said...

Well, it sounds like you got the essentials, anyways.

You'll be set in the event of a dental floss apocolypse, and that's some good piece of mind right there.

Tabor said...

Maybe you need to make a list?

natalee said...

awww....lol!!! now get some sleep!!!!

jules said...

Ooops. But I bet your doggies happy! Better luck next time?
Thanks for stopping by my blog!

secret agent woman said...

I cannot begin to count the number of times I have done precisely that.

And where have you been?

mythopolis said...

Oooh..no butter for the toast! But, on the other hand, surely among the variety of dog foods there is one that might make a nice pate spread! : )

injaynesworld said...

LOL! Reason #1 why I never leave home without a list.

Diana said...

Yup, this is EXACTLY why I DON"T like shopping! I do love thrift shopping however! And don't you find that pets can be quite costly?! Love Di ♥

Brian Miller said...

haha. i hate going to the grocery...i usually end up in the fetal position b/c i can not find anything....

linlah said...

So that's where you've been.

Shrinky said...

Ooooh, poor baby - hope you sleep better tonight, and um, you've just reminded me why I always do my grocery shopping on-line!

vodka and ground beef said...

HI-LARIOUS.

I love that your dog wears panty-liners. That's classy.

Rachel said...

You are ME! :)

And Heaven help me if I ever send the husband to the grocery store with a list like that ;)

Yes, I overuse smilies - sorry :P

So nice to meet you - I laughed and laughed - always a great way to make a friend!

Buckeroomama said...

What's wrong with that picture? That happens to me all the time.

blueviolet said...

I hate when I do that!!! When employees ask me if I want a cart, I always say no to try to not buy more than I can hold in my arms.

....Petty Witter said...

I'm sure there's a lot to be learnt from this - don't go shopping on only an hours sleep. Take a list. Either way, thank goodness you didn't take heed of my suggestions, the outcome would not have been nearly as funny.

Gaston Studio said...

LOL, I think we all do that at times. The last time I went to the grocery store to "pick up a few things" my bill was over $150!

haphazardlife said...

You could always use the dog food as paté I suppose.

But more to the point:

WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN???

nikki04 said...

Pretty pictures on labels get me every time. Especially when trying to pick a wine. Didn't work out in my experience either and it was sure to go downhill from there.

Deanna said...

Been there, done that. Ever heard of a list? At least your dog is dry and well fed... and your teeth won't rot.

Myrna R. said...

Wow! Some shopping. I hope you still like the fish motif.

f1trey said...

Hehe remind me to give my xmas list after youve slept!

Pearl said...

:-)

I do the same.

e said...

Well, wherever you've been you have surely been busy not sleeping...

This was so funny even my cat laughed!

Slamdunk said...

I can see the problem.

I do that kind of stuff on a good 6 hours sleep--I am usually not with it.

Just telling it like it is said...

Ha that made me laugh out loud pads for the dog...get some rest suga..and Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving

Cocotte said...

Those bars look absolutely SCRUMPTIOUS!

But yeah, it's fun to buy crap, isn't it?

Joey @ Big Teeth and Clouds said...

You might as well been shopping with me. Then I feel desperate self-loathing after realizing the mistake. Terrible pattern.

Unknown Mami said...

Rub some dog food on that dry toast.

Hope you are well.

carma said...

do you use 5 feet of floss every time you floss. One would think 3 boxes might last a while...

...louciao... said...

Dry toast? What are you thinking! You could squish the grapes and make jam, or better yet, whip up a few Nanaimo Bar sandwiches. After all, you are well-equipped to more than adequately clean your teeth after scarfing down a few of those nutritional delights.

Nezzy said...

Heeehehhe!!! That's why I only shop twice a month. That and the fact that I live smack in the middle of nowhere! :o)

God bless ya and have a beautiful day sweetie!!!

Dry toast and all.....

Kittycat said...

Sounds like you really LOVE your dog.


Im not allowed to go to the store without my sportsman.

He keeps shit under control.

nitebyrd said...

Don't you love being able to buy bras and dog food in the same store?

Sounds like the way I shop.

Mountain Mama said...

I'm sure glad I'm not the only one who shops like this. LOL
Our pets certainly do take some shopping too, don't they?

StarTraci said...

Sounds like how I do my shopping. I rarely come home with what I went to the store for.

:-)
Traci

P.S. Thanks for the stop by during my rough week.

Shrinky said...

Just popped by to wish you a love and laughter filled Christmas, dear lady. (x)

Queenie Jeannie said...

Ohmygosh! This happens to me all the time! ALL.THE.TIME!

Her magazine is "O". Which in my immature mind always cracks me up when I see it!! (Show us your "O" face...)

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

How often in one day do you floss? Or is it for the dog;-)

Tiffany said...

Oh my goodness. That is precisely why I only let myself go once a week. Cause I do the exact same thing!
