Actually, that's not entirely true. I typically remember everything I need, I just happen to remember it as I'm pulling out of the driveway.
Anyway, we were heading down to Ocean City for the weekend as we always do for Easter. I got just over half-way there when I realized that I'd left my Easter outfit hanging on the bedroom door.
I informed John and said, "I guess I'll just drive back tonight."
He suggested I do it Saturday night after Vince went to bed. I agreed, and thus, I took the trip tonight. That's actually the only reason I'm able to write today.
Anyway, my mother-in-law insisted that I just "buy" something down there or go to Mass in my jeans (on EASTER?!). She couldn't fathom why I'd bother driving all the way home when I could just as easily pick up something else down there.
She's sorta right, but I'm not really one to just randomly throw money at a new outfit when a perfectly good one is waiting at home (temporarily forgotten). Besides, I was looking forward to spending the 2 hour round-trip hanging out with my husband. We'd done something like this before last year, and we had a really good time of it. I forget what it was we were looking for (I think flip-flops for him and Vince), but we had such a fun time just getting out and driving around.
Unfortunately, he ended up too tired to come tonight so I had to make the trip myself. I accepted it as a penance and offered it up for all the stupid stuff I did during Lent.
So say a quick prayer for me that I make it back down to OC in one piece without falling asleep at the wheel. Ha ha. I'm getting pretty bushed and am looking forward to hitting the hay as soon as I get back.
May you all have a blessed Easter!!!
