Yesterday Was Weird

What is the last thing you learned?

Yesterday was weird. I learned that yesterday so it counts. I’m going to do something different today. I’ll share my day with you. Yesterday, that is.

I woke up around 5:00 a.m. My husband’s hideous alarm always wakes me up when he gets up to go to the gym. Sometimes I can go back to sleep, but often I can’t. Yesterday was a “can’t” day. I’m also not an early morning exerciser. I usually run a mile on my lunch break. Anyway, that doesn’t matter in this story. So I just laid in bed working on my post for the day. I kept waiting and waiting for my alarm to go off. It never did. I work from home so I just had to go downstairs to my office. Suddenly, I looked at the time and thinking I was late I got up and ran downstairs. I got logged on just in time to see that it was almost 7:00, not 8:00. So I got started an hour early! Which turned out to be good because I wanted to go to Asheville that afternoon anyway. That is where the closest Goodwill Outlet is and it’s an hour & a half drive for me. I think it’s relaxing to spend a few hours thrifting and looking for treasures.

All was well and good until on my way back home Spotify & Google maps conspired against me. I was driving so I said, “Hey Spotify, play Alabama” which is funny because I never play Alabama. I’ve always been an Oak Ridge Boys kinda gal, but I digress. It responded with “Adding Alabama” and Alabama started playing. I scrolled through songs until I found what I wanted to listen to. Then after a little while I thought, “I must be about 40 minutes from home” so I looked down and it said that I was 6 hours & 28 minutes from home. It had me going from Asheville to Alabama THEN home. πŸ€ͺ🀣 On a positive note, I only lost about 20 minutes but I gained this swell story. If you made it this far go ahead and laugh at my expense. I thought it was funny, too!

But I did find some goodies.

There was really no point to this other than sharing part of my life. I hope you enjoyed it!

  1. Reminds me of the time I was trying to get directions home from somewhere and accidentally had it on biking directions so it was taking me places that didn’t work to go! I was really messed up.

  2. Thats is like the best song story. πŸ˜πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ I would laugh but at the moment I would end up coughing and than lying in a heap trying not to die.
