On our way home from Colombus today we stopped at the mall in Charleston, WV to get out and walk around. It was about the half way point in our 5.5 hr journey so planned to eat lunch at the food court and do some browsing to break up the day a little bit.
Found the toy store (which incidentally was called "Kid Country Toys" but I thought it was "Kid's Country Toys" and figured it would be tractors and farm animals etc-I was wrong) and we indeed browsed.
As many of you know, we are gamers and I wound up purchasing 2 games for S's upcoming B-day.
While unpacking the car I made the harsh realization that I left the bag of games in the food court. Yep. No games. There was a string of one thing after the next, and bottom line: I left the games. I am so mad. This is not a story that ends with me just being happy we all got home safely, realizing material things are just things, and understanding that someone probably took them home and the games ended up saving their life or their childhood or their marriage.
I left the games and I am just mad. I am also mad that I am so worked up over something that in the long run, is something so trivial. But, I can't sleep and I am hoping this post will help me vent my anger and frustration with myself so I can take a cleansing breath. I will let you know.
