Today was well planned out and turned in to a number of fiascoes.
I discovered, late last night, that several of my students were away today for cross country camp; they thought they would be back much earlier, in time for their lessons, but there was a mixup on the cross country sheet and they do not get home until late evening.
Perfect! I had several errands to run and scraped together a quick plan that was actually working out beautifully until…
I went to The Greene to check my latest update and how it affected my battery. The associate at the Apple store checked my phone; the battery was fine, but I had a few apps that needed adjusting. She promptly took care of everything and set a follow up phone call for Thursday morning.
I had additional time for which I had not accounted, so I decided to grab a hamburger and herb fries from EO burgers. Tasty.
I moved on, with the next bus, to Meijer pharmacy to pick up my prescription her a text I had received several days before. At the counter, they could not locate a prescription called in from my doctor. I checked the text messages and they were only reminding me that it was time to refill my prescriptions. My doctor had accidentally written prescriptions for two months instead of three months, and I let her know last week that I needed the adjustment.
So, again I had some unanticipated time to kill.
I went outside to wait for the bus, and to my surprise it pulled up 20 minutes earlier than the scheduled read.
I hopped on the bus and after about 10 minutes, and to my horror, I discovered I was on the wrong bus. I had not noticed I was NOT climbing onto Bus 11 that would take me to Town & Country, and got on Bus 23 that took me to Saint Leonard’s retirement village, and all the way to the mall. I actually got off at big lots to grab a few things before catching Bus 17 directly to my house.
I did grab some needed things for the kitchen and I will be arriving home at the time in which I expected to return.
I will have enough time to feed the dogs, run a wind sectional from 4:15-5:00 PM, and head to Woodland Cemetery at 5:23 PM for a 6:00 PM event.
I must say, it was nice to travel down Bigger Road to Clyo Road to St. Leonard’s past the high school and on to Big Lots.
I consider this to be more an unplanned excursion than a blunder of not paying attention.
