It seems that I’m running a day behind with my daily thankfulness-es. I try to go through the day and be specifically thankful for something that has touched my life that day. But by the time I get home, time gets away from me, and I can’t get to the computer to be thankful. So please bear with me, and stop complaining.
Today is my Mother-in-law’s birthday. That’s the perfect segue- today I am thankful for my in-laws, Johanna and Bob. I consider myself lucky that I have great in-laws. I know so many people who don’t. Johanna and Bob live waaaay out on Long Island, then pretend they’re snow-birds and fly south to beautiful Hilton Head Island for the winter. They invite us down there every year during spring break to spend time with their grandkids. You don’t have to twist my arm! I always have a wonderful time, and cry every time I have to go back home.
Anyway, I’m thankful to them. Johanna raised great kids, one of which resulted in a wonderful Husband for me. They watched Zombiegirl regularly when MR commuted out to Holbrook for his job. They drove an hour every Monday and Friday to meet him to hand off the kid all to save us money in daycare. Zombiegirl has a very special relationship with her Grandma and Grandpa. They’re very close even though they no longer see each other regularly.
They’re wonderful people, and I’m thankful that they’re in my life, and I’m in theirs!
I received an email back from the Stop And Shop people replying to my email about carrying soy cream cheese and soy yogurt:
“Thank you for contacting us.
We appreciate knowing how pleased you are with the natural/organic food aisle. It is always nice to hear comments such as yours.
You mentioned that you would like for us to carry soy yogurt and soy cream cheese. I know how important these products are for dietary purposes and understand your concern. We wish we could carry all available products, but that is not possible. We rely on market research, information provided by our suppliers, and, of course, what our customers are asking for. We make every effort to carry those products our customers want, and constantly review product selection and monitor customer requests. Decisions are based on product availability, customer requests, and the selection of similar products in the same category.
Please know, however, that we will forward your request to the appropriate buyer for their information and consideration.
Thanks, again, for contacting us. We appreciate hearing from you.
Customer Care Representative”
Thanks James. Three times you mentioned that decisions are based on customer requests, among other things. But I get the feeling that I’m not seeing my soy cream cheese and yogurt anytime soon. Hey- anyone care to help me out? Place your request with James here.
