Blurred

This morning I slept through my alarm, which is always alarming. I have to drive a carpool of kids to school! Pounding rain kept me awake throughout the night, and it wasn't until the pre-dawn hours that I hit R.E.M. mode. This morning, my alarm was Eden who screamed "Mom, get up, we are going to be late!!!" I jumped out of bed in search of my glasses, and as my hand was feeling around for them in the drawer, I saw this:





A brightly colored package!!! I was elated because I thought Matt had given me a gift before leaving on a ski trip to Canada with his best friend Clarence. Warm feelings flowed through my veins as I thought to myself:

"That is so nice!!! ....
And, so romantic!!! ...
And, so unexpected!!! ...
And so out of character! ...

What possessed Matt to leave me a gift?"

I found my glasses and put them on so that I could open my present. I could hardly wait! With glasses in place, I looked again .......





Not what I expected... no sir! Apparently, I forgot to put the sundries I had purchased the day before away in their proper place under the sink.


Sometimes my life is a little more interesting out of focus. But..... you just never know.... maybe Matt will read this post and bring me home a souvenir.
