Market Basket

We don't have a Market Basket but on both sides of our family there are local Market Baskets where they live. We've been holding out hope for a long time that the company would put a location in our area but unfortunately it hasn't happened. I've been following the ouster of Arthur T very closely and I was so thrilled to wake up this morning and find that a deal had finally been reached and that customers, employees, and alike can enjoy a T-PARTAY this morning!


The whole situation gives America hope. Why? An uprising of this magnitude without a union to back up the employees is highly unusual and the fact that they not only did it but that they were successful is not only just amazing but everybody wins. The company wins, the employees win, and most of all the customers win!

At the end of the day, the actions of people matter. Congratulations!

Our Weekend

Erin went to a retreat this weekend with her work staff so I decided to take Lily to my hometown to see Grandma and Grandpa. We arrived on Friday night and I got to check out my new riding lawn mower that my Dad has been working on for me. The thing looks mint! He picked it up at a job because a guy he works for was throwing it away. It was left out in the elements and it looked all beat up. It actually looked like a piece of junk but man, my Dad did a lot of work to it. He fixed a bunch of stuff, painted it, and literally brought it back to life. The before and after photos are pretty remarkable!

Later Friday night we took my grandmother to a place called Pizza Villa. I had never been before but my Dad is always raving about it so we went. My parents started going there when my aunt was in the hospital. It was just a few blocks from where she was staying. I have to admit it was pretty good. I don't always enjoy trying new pizza's because I'm stuck in my ways when it comes to food but this place was a great surprise! I also got to see an old high school friend who I found out worked there!

When we got back to my folks house on Friday we watched the Patriots pre-season game and then went to bed. On Saturday we took a ride to a local Fort which was fun. We walked, saw the light houses and ocean, and Lily got to play with some other little tots on the playground. For lunch, we stopped at my favorite sandwich shop and then I took Lily for a ride around the lawn on my new mower. She had a blast! She also spent much of the afternoon playing with a wagon that she loves. My parents have this little red wagon and she loves to pull it around and be pulled around in it.

On Saturday night we had a steak for dinner and then took a ride to my Aunt Tina's house. We spent a good amount of time there talking and Lily played with some toys that she had. We didn't do a lot Saturday night. When we got home my parents put a movie on Netflix. The movie was called The Courier and I didn't think it was that great. I think it was a German film but I'm not sure. Either way, it had some good parts and then some parts where you were scratching your head. I thought the ending was pretty lame as well.

We went back home on Sunday morning and I mowed the lawn and went to work Sunday night. This week, I plan to take Lily to our local fair. I think she'll get a kick out of seeing the animals and best of all she gets in for free!
