"Slow down, you move too fast"
Have you ever been in a grocery store, searching for the shortest line when you think you've finally found it? Then, you end up standing behind a woman who is sorting through her coupons and trying to get her total to add up to an exact amount by having the cashier add and subtract items, then add another until she's satisfied and can dig through her wallet some more to find exact change. We were in this predicament for what seemed like hours (but it was probably closer to 30 minutes--still, that's a long time to be second in line!) at Target the other night. I was feeling more and more impatient to be moving on to our other activities. Luckily, I have an awesome husband who reminded me that we didn't have anywhere we needed to be, and we could afford to be patient. I was especially grateful for his advise today, when the same thing happened at Macey's. It just goes to show that no matter how well you plan and schedule, life always happens and we need to learn how to roll with it.
