Shamelessly using the motorized shopping cart

After being out of breath from just getting out of the car, and finally waddling my way into Wal Mart, I found myself looking at those motorized carts just sitting there with no one around to use them.  So I decided that today was the day I would be using one of these awesome inventions.

I am 30 weeks pregnant and feel bigger than I did at 9 months with Tater, so I think it’s pointless to list out all the aches and pains I am feeling at this point.

I must say how surprising it was how easily your mind jumps into helpless mode when on one of these things.  I suddenly could not get up to walk two steps to pull something off the shelf, instead I used the backup button which triggers a loud beeping noise to warn people behind you to get out of the way.  I had to remind myself at times that I could still use my legs.  Never did I think I would be using one of these things but I must say, they are a life saver.  I think shopping would have been left up to the fiance’ had these not been invented.

Cheers to the motorized shopping cart!!

    Hahahahah….. I have used them one time. Have you seen the way some of those people drive those? They think they are on a speed way or something.
