I called it an early evening at Spades tonight (we actually played Liverpool Rummy) because Moggy kept me up last night zipping around, knocking things over, and attacking my feet. I needed to go home, pick up a few things in the yard, wash my hair, and go to bed before 10pm.
I didn't make it.
As soon as I got home I remembered I needed to get something at the store. I knew if I didn't go right then I'd forget it for the fourth time in two days. Since it was something I could get at WalMart or HEB I decided to run in HEB--I had just grocery shopped a day or so ago so there would be fewer temptations. It would be just a quick dash in for one item.
By the time I arrived my list had grown to five. I had just a couple of dollars and didn't want to use my debit or credit cards so I pulled out a twenty from my mad money stash. The five items should be less than that and I could run through the express lane. I took my wallet "just in case."
My five items quickly multiplied, I did not go through the express lane, it's almost midnight, the yard is still a mess, my hair is still dirty, and I'm wide awake.
I should have stayed and played more cards--then when I start yawning tomorrow it would be because I had fun tonight. :~)
