The plan? Leave at 7pm kids fed, bathed, dressed ready for bed. I’d drive to Indooropilly shopping center (45min drive) pick up our wedding rings (getting erodium re-platted) and the kids would fall asleep in the car on the way home! Perfect. g
I did one better! or so I thought. I left at 6.40pm, with 20 minutes ahead of schedule. I could drop into spotlight if the kids were happy enough – ok, run back up to grab the spotlight vouchers. Ok, awesome off we go!
10 mins into the trip. My Phone! Driving late at night with two kids without a phone…should I risk it? Oh wait…my license and cards for payment are all in the phone wallet. Gah!
10 mins back.
Leave at 7.01pm.
The kicker – I piled the kids in the car first thinking to leave my phone til last because it had only 18% battery. If I had left at 7pm my phone would’ve been 50% charged and I would’ve grabbed on the way out.
so, think I’ll stick to my more tardy side.
