What to Buy for A Wedding Shower When There’s No Time to Shop

I’m standing in Kroger, two kids are in Pepe’s Playhouse, the other boys are impatient. I’m as far away from anything glamorous and pleasant as can be, and it’s 3 hours before the shower. My kids are hungry, and I will have groceries to put away soon. There is no possible way I can get to a department store to buy a suitable present.

Then, I spy this:Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Dish Soap, Lemon Verbena, and this: Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Surface Scrub,meyer1.jpg Lavender, and this: Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Counter Top Spray, Lavender and this: Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Toilet Bowl Cleaner, Geranium and this:Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Shower Cleaner, Geranium, Spray Bottle and these:
Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Counter Top Wipes, Lemon Verbena, Case Pack

My cart smells like heaven.

And Kroger even had this to put it in: Rectangular Beige Storage Canvas

I package them all together, and dropped in a card in with this poem.

Thank you for this sink of dirty dishes; we have plenty of food to eat. Thank you for this pile of dirty, stinky laundry; we have plenty of nice clothes to wear. Thank you for those unmade beds; they were so warm and comfortable last night. I know that many have no bed. Thank you for this bathroom, complete with all the splattered mirrors, soggy, grimy towels and dirty toilet; they are so convenient. The presence of all these chores means I have a family who loves me, and I do them cheerfully.

  1. I love that idea! I’ve never seen those products before but they look neat. We have Method here which is all natural and I love their tub and tile cleaner, it smells like mint.
