Crying at the Grocery store

Last night I went grocery shopping. 
I should have know right there that things were going to be awful.
The kids were fussy and fighting with each other my cart was heavy and hard to navigate through the aisles. 
By the time we got to check out I was so ready to go home. 
Little did I know that I wouldn't leave for another hour! 
Slowest cashier ever! {poor guy}
About half way through, After the 3rd person to try and wait behind us left I just started to cry, my head hurt, my  
babies needed me, so I just told him to leave the rest and let me go.
We got home at 9, 3 hours after we had left and I fed the kids and put them to bed.
Jones is away in WA for training with work {lucky}
So I just went to bed too. It felt good to get to bed so early. 
When I woke up at 8 the kids were still sleeping and it is snowing outside.
I have another crazy day ahead of me but it was a really peaceful way to wake up.
I am feeling happier and happier everyday, uplifted by the season and the goodness of people around me. I won't let one stressful shopping experience bring me down :)

Oh man, I feel for you! Grocery shopping is the worst, but especially late at night with all the kids. :( I hope your peaceful morning continues in to the rest of the day!

That sucks!!! And at the same time I feel ya. I ditto what melancholy said about grocery shopping late is the worst and especially with kids. No wonder they fell apart.
Glad things are looking up (besides the episode at the store).
