Yep! I got all stocked up on food and then realized that I am going to run
out of one of my prescription meds. Although Bartell's is just around the
corner, it involves going around a corner and up a steep hill. Then down
into the parking lot. My daughter's dance studio used to be in that same
parking lot and it gets so bad that they used to close at the first hint of
snow. We've watched vehicle after vehicle lose control on our street alone.
And just yesterday before things even got all that bad, we were headed from
Edmonds back to Bothell. Saw a very bad accident 2 miles from here. Looked
like the car lost control going around the corner and slammed into the
sidewalk, causing a tire to come loose. Either that or the car just had
like...an axle problem and the timing was bad.
We're not going out. Tuna melts tonight and they were pretty good but
Veganaise leaves a little something to be desired. Not sure what we'll have
tomorrow. I'll let my daughter decide. But we do need to eat some pasta at
some point this week.
