We decided to do some shopping today. Things must be almost fully back to normal since the store was having great sales on staple items that were hard to find a few months ago. Case in point...pasta. They had digital coupons for pretty much all pasta brands. It was going for ridiculously cheap prices like $0.79/bag for American Beauty. They also had sauce on sale for $1.79. So you could feed your fambly for under $3. Need protein? Chicken thighs were $0.79/lb. Our biggest "splurge" was a 3 lb salmon fillet for $20. Our cart was as full as it has been since this mess started. We're definitely ready for another surge in cases, but our nanny governor is doing a good job in keeping us safe. If you look at a map of the country, New Mexico is usually doing fairly well compared to our neighbors to the east and west. The number I always check is hospitalizations, and ours has been in the 150-170 range fairly consistently. So let's hope we have turned a corner and we can get back to normalcy. The gov has said not this month, but hopefully soon.
