me time

Yesterday I went to Market Basket by myself while the kids were with their grandparents. I was dreading it ahead of time—there are lots of times when getting out to engage in commerce seems really hard—but when I got there and got the first few things into the cart I actually started to slow down and decompress. Was it the change of scenery? Was it that, even with all the people crowding the aisles, I knew that none of them was going to ask me for anything? I don't know, but I have to report that I had a delightful time calmly perusing the shelves and thinking about what I'd like to make in the week to come. And I wasn't even stressed about making sure I got everything, because as lovely as it was I'd be happy to come again soon!
