New Year

August 23, 2011 by Rieshy

Yesterday was our first day back to school.  I generally fly by the seat of my pants, but this year I had invested a lot of planning time so that the kickoff to school would flow smoothly.

I just forgot to carefully plan that before breakfast my 12 year old was going to get locked out of her dogsitting house, with the dog.

Talk about an adrenaline rush- my daughter calls me and tearfully announces that I, "Must Drive Over NOW!"  I thought the dog was dead.

The (non-dead) dog spent the day with us.

I also forgot to plan that I would have 2, yes 2, flat tires.  Should have penciled that in.

Thanks to the unknown (and slightly scary looking) gentleman who knocked on my van window and told me something was wrong with my tire,  I was able to drive straight to the tire store before it went totally flat.  By the way Discount Tire rocks.  They found a huge bolt in one front tire and a screw in the other front tire.  The joys of living near new construction.

Did my planning pay off?  I did.  I knew where to pick-up after everything fell apart. 

I just hope today's planning doesn't reap quite the same benefit.

Best laid plans. Maybe you got a month's worth of uh-ohs in one day!

I like that thought Melanie.
