Marshmallow Husbands

Okay - so I'm busted. I didn't really get all that much work done around the house. But I did make a trip to the grocery store the Sunday before Thanksgiving! That alone should be worthy of some card making time! Too many hapless husbands wandering around Hy-Vee with grocery lists in their hands! I wanted to scream - "pick a bag of taters - any bag - just get out of my way!!!" The unfortunate part of this story is I usually send MY very own hapless honey to the store with a list. I had no idea this is what happens when other wives are trying to get to the canned pumpkin - only to be slowed down by some loving dunce with a list. One gent was stumped by the variety of marshmallows - he was on his cell phone asking his wife which size to purchase and if she wanted the pastel colored or white marshmallows. Maybe I will think twice about sending hubby to the grocery store only days before the holidays. Maybe...
