Pride

Ben takes the car to work most days and that leaves Reid and I "stuck" at home.  Well, yesterday we took Ben to work and that meant we could run errands and do some grocery shopping.  I was so excited and felt super productive.  I may have bragged a little bit to Ben about it.

Well, pride cometh before the fall.

I really only had one thing on my calendar.  For his Easter present, we bought Reid swim lessons.  "Shrimp" class at the YMCA, oh so cute and I have been oh so excited.  Counting down for months.

So I was totally surprised, upset, flustered, and heartbroken when I woke up this morning and remembered class started yesterday.

Wow!  What a winner I am.  It's the first "activity" I sign my kid up for and we miss the first day?!?!?!  Luckily, after several frantic phone calls, the Y let me change his class to the July session.  I'm still a little bummed we don't have "beginning of Summer" swim classes . . . but at least I'll get my monies worth and be able to attend all 6 classes.

I've set two alarms for my e-mail account and made Ben add it to his calendar.  I really can't believe I forgot.  On Friday I was getting so excited and nervous, and by Monday it completely escaped my mind.  I'm a nut!
Good thing this "shrimp" is too little to know the difference or care!

I'm not so sure you're a winner if you forget such important things -- perhaps you're a "weiner!" JK
