SO annoying. I’ve done it again!All my ducks were in a row: exercise class in the morning, dinner crockpotting away, I’d actually completed writing a scene in this book I talk about but never finish, and I’ve done a stroll around the complex (heavy coat, woolly hat, fleece gloves. Heaven help me when it gets truly cold.) The landscape guys have already put out the snow markers for snowblowing, but the sun was shining.
A UPS truck went by in one direction, an Amazon one passed the other way. Cold weather, 144 units full of mostly retired folks, and I’m sure we’re a steady source of business for the delivery guys. The whole time I was out, I was visualizing tucking myself in with a blanket and my new library book that I was already enjoying immensely. I gathered the mail – new New Yorker, yay! – and headed home.
Tucked in as planned, I read two pages and realized what I’d been fearing. I’ve read this before, dammit!
