Then I saw the map to the place we are going, it looked confusing, and I remembered Saturday night, being hopelessly lost within 5 miles of my own home. I checked out the Costco website for a Garmin - which I have always wanted. I have one for my wrist, but I want one for my car!
But I stopped in my tracks and thought - what in God's name am I doing?
- "making up something" otherwise known as lying - don't need to do that
- striking out on my own - rowing my own boat - going my own way - usually not the best idea
- spending money I do not need to spend to do this - something else that is not a good idea.
So I walked down to my boss' office and asked him if I could still catch a ride with them. I also asked if they would mind if I knit while someone else drives! How cool is that!
You really would think that I would have learned by now to default to good behavior instead of selfish behavior... but frequently this is not the case. I still get another chance today to get it "right" though if I stay sober. And I plan to do just that, and hope you all will too!
