I Only Needed 3 Things

Most of you know how much I hate shopping. The other day I needed 3 things (well, 4 but I never did find the last one). I needed super glue, a sharpie and something I can't mention because it will ruin *someone's* birthday surprise. But all three things would normally be found somewhat near each other in any regular store. Not here.

I bought the unmentioned item at the PX. The sharpie I found at the shoppette (it's like a convenience store). The super glue was at the PXtra (Why is there a PX and a PXtra? I don't know. Chalk it up to the infinite wisdom of the government.). The shoppette had 3 or 4 different kinds of glue but not super glue.

Each base (there are 3 within a few miles of each other here) has multiple little stores like this. I've been told to check out all of them to see what they have. Something tells me I'm going to have to in order to find everything I'm looking for. And mom wonders why I do all my shopping on line!

  1. What interesting shopping; three different stores for three items, what a bummer. I hate shopping too for the most part.

    I really enjoyed the pictures the other day and look forward to more. I'll definitely be looking forward to indoor skiing pictures.

    Even though I don't have television at home I have watched the TV show you mentioned in an earlier post so I totally understand where you're coming from on the home search. I hope it's coming together for you and you find something you really like in the very near future, and of course is suitable for the dogs.

    Are you able to cook at all in your hotel room? I'd be so tired of eating out by now. Have you found a favorite restaurant or menu item yet?

    Looking forward to the next post!
