As my life is at home and I do not have to go into the outside world on a daily basis, I very seldom have a "Monday"....until today.
I had a 9:45 appointment with our family lawyer. The office is about 45 minutes from my house. I left 30 minutes early so I could make a quick stop by Lowe for a few items. Good thing I left early. I took the back roads to get there as it is a nice country drive. I haven't traveled this road in months. I noticed there were hardly any cars or trucks on the road. After I had went about 30 miles, almost to the road I take to go into town there is a barricade across the road informing me that it is closed. really . There is nothing for me to do but turn around and head back the road just traveled and go by way of interstate.
When I left home I had a little of a quarter tank of gas so I thought when I get to the interstate I will fill up. I am still OK time wise...just can't go to Lowes before my appointment. That will have to wait until I get through. While driving I am reaching into my purse for my wallet to get a credit card out when a cold chill hits me. I had taken my wallet out to make a purchase over the internet last night and it was still laying on my desk. I call Papa Bear and ask him did he think I could make it there and back with only a quarter tank of gas. He thinks so but will be on stand-by in case I need rescuing. I am thinking...better not speed even in the slightest. I conceal carry....No drivers license and no CCL with me.
I make it to my appointment with 5 minutes to spare. I had on a nice pair of slacks and blouse and looked down in the floor board to put on the heels I thought I had brought with me. Of course I had forgotten them. I have on my white Niki's with florescent green trim. Can anything else possibly go wrong? Of course....My personal records needed updating at the attorneys office. Could they please make a copy of my drivers license?
I made it back home on fumes with no other issues.
I am going to take a nap.
