Hurry Up and Wait

This started out the typical Thursday.  Into the Barlow for a half hour and then off to our class in Alexandria.  We only had four people come to class today.  We didn't know it was spring break and someone had said I bet we won't have class today because it is spring break.  So the majority of our class didn't even come.  But the class went well. Those that were there really enjoyed it and it was a lot more quiet with only a few children there.

We had an appointment to have our oil changed on the car.  So we got a bite to eat and headed to the dealer.  We had an appointment but we were told it would still take 1 1/2 hours.  Then they found a nail in one of the tires and that took another 40 minutes because they patch if from inside and they have to wait for the glue to dry.  We still needed to pick up groceries for Women's conference on Saturday evening. We will have refreshments after.  Then we have to bring in the bagels and juice for breakfast tomorrow before leaving for Valley Forge tomorrow morning.  We didn't plan our day to sit in the Toyota dealer for over 2 1/2 hours.  That put us in after work traffic, sitting.  We had to get home and get the laundry done because we were out of underwear.  So as fast as we have gone today we have hit a wall and had to sit and wait.  Now we have to wait for the washer and dryer.

  2. That is a long time to sit at the dealership! In the book, "Oh the Places You'll Go," by Dr. Seuss, he talks about waiting. We all have to play the waiting game at times.
