We are in our new house. The boxes aren't all unpacked, and things are far from organized, but the beds are made, the computer is on line, the TV is functional, and the kitchen is operational
An interesting thing happened a few weeks before we moved. I went into my health food market that I've written about so many times, and they were rearranging the shelves. A number of the items I buy on a regular basis were gone. Bladderwack capsules, fava beans, and rice bran were just three of the items no longer on the shelves. I was told that they wouldn't be stocking them any more. Not only that, but the prices were higher.
I mentioned my disappointment that night, and my husband said he had read that the store was being bought out by Whole Foods. Now I know some of you love Whole Foods, but having had a choice for years between Whole Foods, and a local chain, the local market consistently had better quality and lower prices. The next time I was there I asked, and my husband's information was correct. Whole Foods was buying out their competition. I knew it was time to move.
Our old house was in a big city. Our new house is out in the country, six miles from a small town. I wondered whether I would be able to buy supplements locally, or whether I would have to start ordering on the internet. My first visit to the health food store assuaged all my fears. Everything I was used to buying was on the shelves. I was so excited. I immediately felt at home.
