On Friday morning I left my house intending fully to return in the evening. Things change. I left my cell phone at home, forgot it in the pocket of the coat I meant to wear. I had to pick up children after work, I brought them home, and their mother was back from a week-long trip to the nation's capital for work.
The mom took Jess to a birthday party, and I took Matthew to soccer practice. The wrong field! No one told me which field - but that was quickly rectified.
Then off to the toddler and the baby, I wanted to stop at home first to get my phone, a change of clothes, my book and my pillow (love my pillow, hate to sleep other places without it). Well, once again after Labor Day traffic going West on a Friday was at a virtual stand-still. Crawling. So instead of going home, I skipped that half-hour plus on the highway and turned off toward mother and children. Much better choice!
Yes, two days in the same clothes could be managed.
(Note to self: stash some clothes at Nicole's).
And the happy news that friends of ours eloped! Yup, got married while on vacation in Bali.
How very romantic....
Congratulations, Dani and Holger!
