Exciting Moments of February, Day 13
I guess not every day can have an extremely exciting moment. Today, tragedy struck — twice.
1) I forgot to put the coffee filter in my coffee pot.
Let’s just say there were a lot of coffee grounds. And I drank it until it became more of a solid than a liquid. I refuse to bust out silverware to drink my morning coffee. A girl’s gotta have standards.
2) My childhood Target is REMODELING!
I’m still pretty distraught about this. I love Target. Especially this one. It’s the Target I was born in — ok, I wasn’t really born in the Target, but my momma taught me the joys of shopping at Target at a very young age.
Other things changed. My parents moved out of my childhood home. Grandma D. moved into an apartment.
All I had left of my childhood was Grandma J.’s house and the Valley West Target. These places still looked the same. They were familiar. Like an old fuzzy blanket or a freshly blanched Brussels sprout. Cozy.
Now, my Target is being torn up and there’s a sign advertising fresh groceries.
I don’t want fresh groceries at my Target. If I want fresh groceries, I’ll go across the street to Hy-Vee. I was fine with packaged snacks.
I knew my way around the old Target. I knew exactly where the stuff I bought was. Now, the groceries are where the electronic used to be, and the electronics are where the toys used to be.
It’s the end of an era.
I think I can adjust.
I just hope Grandma J. doesn’t decide to expand her house to make room for additional home decor and grocery shelves.
