10:33 – I’m processing science kits for shipment while Barbara vacuums. She also gave me a haircut this morning.

Yesterday, we were discussing our next Costco run. Later, out of the blue, Barbara said she didn’t think we needed any more corn. At first, I thought she meant corn meal, but she was talking about canned corn. Independently, she said it made sense to her to buy only what we eat, and we don’t eat a lot of vegetables. We eat mostly meat with rice, pasta, egg noodles, potatoes, or whatever. She also said it was fine with her to buy more spaghetti sauce, applesauce, canned mushroom soup, oats, and other things that we use regularly. Sound advice.

With the exception of egg noodles, which are a pain in the butt to store because of their bulk, I plan to buy more of all of the stuff she mentioned. I did have canned mushrooms on my list, and I may buy a few cans, but I’m not going to stock up big-time on them. Barbara is indifferent to them, I don’t really much care whether we use them in casseroles and so on or not, Al actively dislikes them, and Barbara said she thought Frances dislikes them as well. So why store a lot of them?
