Groceries and shopping and bills, oh my!

Back from grocery shopping. I also went to get Zeke some more of his canned food. They were completely out of the small cans (which is the first time that has ever happened) and so I had to get him some of the larger cans. But I was told they should have the small cans soon.

When I got home, I unloaded the groceries and then did a little cleaning up of the back yard. I’d been meaning to clean out the recycling bin for a while now, and I got that taken care of, as well as getting rid of a bunch of trash.

I took care of four bills that needed to be paid

I spoke to Mom, wishing her a happy Mother’s Day. I spoke briefly to Dad as well.

The laundry is underway. It looks like I’ve got 4 or 5 loads to do.

And I spent about 15 minutes on the phone with customer service for a service issue that I needed to get cleared up. I hate being on the phone with customer service because try as I might to explain things in the very simplest terms, using as few words as possible, and as clearly as I can, I inevitably have to repeat myself two or three times.
