I really, really like living in town. There are lots of perks... But my favorite thing is the close proximity of the grocery store, post office, bank, etc. It's awesome. Last week I went to the store, mailed a package at the post office, went to a wax appointment and was back home in less than 20 minutes. It was fantastic! Today, on my way home from work, I stopped at the new Dollar General store in Hilmar... (which I love by the way.) I bought some grocery essentials. It wasn't until I got home that I realized that I didn't make it home with a loaf of bread I had purchased. (I won't blame the store because I may very well have left it in the cart in the parking lot.) When this happened before... you just forgot about the bread. The gas and effort were not worth going back into town. But for me... it was a 3 minute trip... and a simple solution.
