Living with Two Boys

My life is always very interesting living with the "excuse" boys. Yesterday we were gone most of the day and when we got home I went into the basement and found 4 lights on and the chest freezer hanging wide open. Luckily I didn't have to much in there so it was still frozen. When I asked A about it he said he had gotten some ice out of there but was sure he closed it. I think he had a senior moment. Later on I found a package of light bulbs in the kitchen cabinet. Apparently they were left on the counter by A and when my brother went to put his cereal away also put the lightbulbs away. He admitted to it. The old lightbulb that A changed was in the kitchen sink, but he swears he threw it away. All this time I thought these misplaced things were all my doing, but I don't drink milk so why would I put it in the cupboard, I don't drink coffee so why would I put the coffee filter holder in the garbage and I don't usually keep sandwich bags in the fridge unless they have something in them. I must say they keep my on my toes.
For some stupid reason I stopped at Walmart after work today. Walmart has cheaper prices on some things but I ask myself everytime I go there why I do. I won't go near there after 7 at night or on the weekends at all. Today I stopped at 2pm and was drawn in by the lack of cars in the parking lot. Had to get a few things. Every fricking aisle I tried to go down was either full of browsers or had a pallet of stock in it. I think 80% of the people in the store were somewhat pitfully stupid. General rule of thumb when shopping is you move your cart over to the side if you need to look at a product and you do not dead stop in the middle of an aisle. I am the worlds most impatient shopper but having to be in the same store with these people just adds to my impatience. I always go throught the garden center checkout as it's quicker and I thought less people knew about it. Not so true today. 5 items and 25 minutes later I was free of the shopping trip from hell. The only thing that made it good was not running into my ex-sister-in-law.

At least no one was writing a check in front of you when you checked out. Where am I? What's the date?
