The second day of my learn-something-new project. The learning continues.
I dragged myself up the steps of the post office this morning at 8:15 with a cumbersome box to ship and a wandering 3-year-old. I accidentally dropped my purse and watched its contents scatter back down the steps. As I chased the rolling lipstick and repeatedly tried jamming the battery back into my battered cell phone, Bob thought it would be helpful to throw away my "trash" (keys, wallet, sunglasses). I raced to intercept him before he reached the garbage can.
With all of my lady items finally secured back inside my bag, I clenched the back of Bob's shirt in my right hand to "steer" him and balanced the heavy box on my left hip. Shuffling back to the post office entrance, I pulled hard on the door handle. Locked.
What I learned: Our post office opens at 9:00am, not 8:00am.
(Yay. I’m a student of life. This is fun.)
