Left wallet home, nearly ran out of gas, and other things that went wrong today

What a crazy afternoon I had. It started this morning, or, actually last night. When I got out of the van, I dropped my wallet and it was on the ground all night in the rain, soaked through and through. Thankfully, it was still there. After I dropped Alex off to faith formation I returned to wait in the car for a while because I had a meeting with the Director of Elementary & Family Catechesis. While in the car, I emptied my wallet of all the various things that were inside and ran the heat on high to dry things out. I put the credit cards in my jacket pocket because I didn't want to leave them in the car while parked on the street while I went to my meeting.

Fast forward to later today. The Ravens game was starting to get good as I was about to leave to take Andrew home. So, trying to get out the door while catching the game, I forgot some things. Andrew's overnight bag for one, and I didn't put on my jacket, which is where the credit cards were. I'm about two thirds of the way when I realized that I wouldn't have enough gas to make it all the way, then realized that I didn't have any cash or credit cards on me. I didn't have enough gas to make it home either. So I was in trouble.

Fortunately, there was six dollars in change in the van's little coin holder, whew. That was enough to get Andrew home, but not quite enough to get back home so I called my mom and she met me at a gas station and gave me a little more. Thanks mom!

Isn't mom the best? She has been a lifesaver for me, watching Aaron and taking him to his activities.
