Too Dumb to Even Blame on Being Pregnant

It was bound to happen . . . but damned if it didn’t happen 30 minutes before I was supposed to set up for a show.

Yesterday morning was fantastic. My husband made me a bacon & egg sandwich and we got to read some of the paper without the distraction of our hyper 3 ½ year old son jumping on us and ripping the front page to shreds.

From there I did my usual pre-jewelry show routine and finished ahead of time. I didn’t have to leave the house until 11:45, but had everything ready to load at 11:30. What do you know—miracles DO happen!

Ten minutes later, I went back outside, turned the car and A/C on, and began to load my gear. Not realizing that I’d bumped the “door lock” button with one of my cases, I shut the door and started to walk around the car to get in.

No luck.

And while I was having my out-of-body experience, I couldn’t help but think that I looked like a dog—doing laps around the car, looking in from the outside and whimpering louder and louder as I peered in from window to window.

It’s a hopeless feeling . . . looking into a car that is RUNNING (along with the A/C), seeing that your purse and cell phone are safely sitting on the passenger side floor, and there’s no way to get in.

I’d never done it before—locking the keys in a car was for dumb people. I was not dumb. I’ve always got my keys . . . they even hang from a cute little hook on the top of my tote so I always know where they are.

I ended up getting to where I needed to go . . . 45 minutes late. And while many of the women I met yesterday afternoon said it was all attributed to the fact that I was pregnant and “pregnancy brain” does affect women at least once during their pregnancy, I couldn’t help but think that what I did was too stupid to even blame on being pregnant!

At least my car didn’t overheat while it ran with the A/C on for almost an hour. I love my Honda!
