I have a tell. Like in poker, but my tell involves a change in my day. The morning started off wonderfully. Kamryn was off from school so we met up with some friends from her class for a playdate. The kids had so much fun and I could tell they were a little tired from playing, but perked up once they had lunch and a couple of minutes to relax.
I had a few errands to run in the afternoon – jewelry store to pick up my wedding ring, the mall to find some pants for Kamryn and Costco. Each and every stop was a piece of cake – the kids were awesome and my wedding ring is so sparkly and shiny, it looks like I got married yesterday!
Things were going surprisingly well for me until we got home. I was approaching the door to unlock it and go inside when it happened. I pointed the keyless entry remote for the car at the front door and hit the unlock button….twice. I have done this a few times and each time the day took a terrible turn. The first time I laughed about it, but the rest of the day it was clear that my mind was elsewhere.
So with that and my commitment to posting everyday, that’s all I can muster up.
