Old habits die hard people... you know it, so don't deny it. IF you've ever tried to give up caffeine or smoking (I love my coffee and have never smoked so I'm speaking vicariously through others) you know just how hard kicking the habit can be.
Yesterday was Puppy Pampering Day. Each of my girls had their trip to the groomer so they could get all sparkly and smelling pretty before Easter. She's on vacation next week, so now was the time! While I took pint-sized Bella in first, I opted to run my errands before I went home to pick up Brandi. Errands included grocery shopping - at 2 different stores for sale purposes.
Nothing fancy or funny yet, right? Just wait, there's more...
Upon loading up the groceries into my Odyssey from the 2nd store, it was now time to go unpack them, put them away and pick up Brandi. So I jumped in the van and took off...
I went straight at the stop light, drove up the road, pulled into the driveway. I parked the van, popped open the door and was carrying my groceries up to the door when I realized... I don't live there anymore.
Did you read that?
I was taking my groceries to my old house. The home where we no longer live... and it didn't "dawn" on me as I was driving up the road. It didn't even make me do a double take pulling in the driveway or getting out of the van. It wasn't until I had 6 bags of groceries and I was juggling my keys trying to get the one for the back door that I was in the WRONG HOUSE! LOL
I'm still laughing, I had to call Chris at work and make him laugh.
Now I've had many other funny vehicle moments - like the time I did a dashboard pedicure, or the time I got in the back seat, BUCKLED UP and was waiting for the driver to get in to take me home... but there was no driver, it was just me. Or the second time I did that - different vehicle, same result. Ghost drivers don't drive. And that my friends is a true story... just ask my Aunt Monica. I thought she was going to pee her pants laughing WITH me, because as I retold the story is sounded, well... rather stupid.
So I do hope you have better success at kicking old habits. And I also hope you have had a great laugh at my expense today. Just think, if laughter is the best medicine I just kicked your cold, fought your flu and sent you on your way to a wonderful week!
