Wisdom

Under the heading: Gaining Wisdom While I’m losing my Mind, I am going to start my adventure blog with the story of the night before I even left the house. For some odd reason, I decided to clean the unnecessary items out of my glove box. Ten minutes into this project, I realized I have neither the current insurance card nor the current registration docs are in my car. Oops. Those are slightly necessary items to have in the event I get pulled over, or have an accident. Needless to say, I spent the next half hour in search mode, telling myself not to panic. In this day and age of on-line everything, I could certainly get new docs printed. Perhaps I wouldn’t get an early start in the morning, as is my preference, but no need for agitation.

After fifteen minutes the details clicked in as to where the registration docs might be, and they were. The insurance cards were with the receipt and policy, still in their little perforated page, exactly as they were when they came in the mail. So glad they haven’t been needed in the meantime.

With that little crisis over, I am in hopes that is the worst thing I face on this trip. Probably the most pleasing aspect was the fact that I did not panic, nor did any cuss words float about unnecessarily.

The morning: I woke an hour before the alarm came to life, which reminds me, I need to change the alarm that reminds me to call me mother one hour ahead so I’m still calling her on her time. Laying there, it took only a few minutes to know for sure, that just like on Christmas morning, I would not be going to go back to sleep.

going, going, gone…
