So, we have an unanticipated day off. On our way down to Missouri, we called the hotel, as we always do, in order to assure ourselves that the room is accessible and everything is in order. Well, the room was accessible but things weren't in order. A quick call to the organizer of our time here in Missouri straightened things out. We are working Tuesday, Wednesday, not Monday, Tuesday. We had headed down a day too early. Joe was really upset at himself for making the mistake, me, I was briefly annoyed too. But then we realized that all it was costing us was an extra hotel night so, so what.
We've planned a day that we weren't supposed to have. That's kind of cool. These days with everything organized long in advance, life micromanaged into one hour compartments on an iPod calender, getting time just dropped in your lap seems more like a gift. We are going to go to the Winston Churchill museum here in Missouri (who knew) in the morning and then grab our books and read and nap through the afternoon - delicious.
I hope, dear readers, that all of you get some unexpected time for yourself, and, more than that, that you have the courage to take it.
