It has been one of those days. Bellamy Blue had a bad nightmare last night….. it was something about her ballerina tutu needing to be washed and her not being able to find her ballet slippers. I tried everything, but nothing calmed her, until I began going through her swim class routine. When we got to the floating part, she finally drifted back to sleep – but of course I could not just drift off.
But it was Bellamy’s last swim class today, and I had not been running at the Y, since last Thursday, since she ended up at the ER after the last class – getting stitches after a fall. So, we headed for the YMCA, and after I did my morning exercise, we got her dressed and she was so excited. Then … the life guard looked at us and told us that they had rescheduled the last swim class for…. YESTERDAY! My little swimmer took it better than I did, so we headed back for the locker room, since I did not have my swimsuit with me, since the class was only for the kids. Otherwise I’d have jumped in with her. We get to the locker, and I look through my phone for the memo with the key lock combination – which I haven’t memorized, simply because there are too many passwords to memorize these days, and due to pure dependency on the phone. Oops! I sat down, took a deep breath, and somehow the combination was store in the back of my mind somewhere.
At this point I should have realized that we should have stayed home. But no! I had the entire grocery trip planned out, and so we walked the mile to Publix. Thankfully, I decided to look in the diaper bag for my phone charger before we walked inside, because it turned out that I had forgotten my wallet. I was ready to call it the day, but I called my husband, and Bellamy Blue and I took a little break at the playground before heading into do our grocery shopping.
Thankfully our Publix trip was uneventful, full 0f helpful employees, and all the coupons scanned.
Oh my, I’m so glad to be home!
