Last night I had just gotten done with a long day of work. It was late and I was tired and hungry. I drove home with a liberal interpretation of the speed limit.
I pulled in to the driveway and noticed the van was gone. Hmm. I wonder where everyone went. The lights were off and there was no sign anyone had been home for at least a couple hours. I was just opening the door when I remembered my husband had a rehearsal that night and the kids were with a babysitter. 30 minutes away. In the town I just drove away from as quickly as possible to get home to the kids. Oh, crap.
Did I mention I had arranged the babysitting just that morning?
I need a vacation.
