This Move Has Made Me Lose My Brain

So, for those of you that follow me on Twitter, you already know how my day started out yesterday. It may not have caused my blood pressure to rise quite as high as it did the day of the Riley escape, but it sure did make me smack myself in the forehead with a residual "doh!"

Like I've mentioned before, I have a typical morning routine. Some small things have been adjusted now that we're in the new house, but for the most part, I try and get the same things done each morning. Make the bed, get myself ready, feed and walk the dog, clean the kitchen. It's sort of like auto pilot most days. But without fail, the clock always hits 8:30 long before I'm ready for it to. Yesterday was no different, too many things to finish in a small window of time, which left me hurrying Riley's time outside, and running for the door to head to work. 

Alas, yesterday was about to have its' way with me, for no sooner than closing the door behind me did I realize that my keys were hanging there inside the door in the foyer on their organized little hook. And I was outside, in the rain: purse, breakfast, coffee, laptop and jacket in hand. No keys. What the heck do I do now? Of course I called B because I had no other option, and being the sweet guy he is, he drove all the way home from work just to let me in. A trip that took him about 90 minutes in total. 

But, if I can be honest? Other than the fact that it was raining, the time I had to sit outside and just wait was somewhat refreshing! We've been running circles around each other for weeks getting our new house ready, and now moving in and getting organized for the holidays. But, yesterday I simply had no choice but to slow down and wait. Sometimes it's necessary to force myself to take even ten minutes to just think. To re-prioritize my lengthy to-do list, and to just take in all the blessings that we've been given this last year. 

I'd be lying if I said I didn't immediately quickly take to Twitter once I had gotten over the initial shock of being locked out. Thank God for smartphones, right?!
