Mother always told me about things coming in threes.
I add, “It Only Happens To Me”, in threes.
My Scotland trip called for preparation: clothes, plane trip and lots of money.
1. I ordered the wrong money and would have had to lose $50 to trade it back to US currency.
So, I had to go back and order Pounds Sterling.
(The upside to that is I have $300 in Euros for the next trip.)
2. I bought some nice Jones of New York navy long pants that seemed to have too much starch in them.
I washed them before packing them, and now they are capris.
(The upside is that I have new pair of capris for next year.)
3. I thought Scott and I would leave for Scotland on Thursday, and instead we left on Wednesday.
Originally, I thought I was a day ahead of the packing and then found out I was a day behind.
(The upside is that we got some extra sleep before meeting the group and got to go to Rosslyn Chapel today; think Da Vinci Code.)
I'm so thankful I looked at the tickets on Monday, instead of Wednesday night!
Since I experienced the "threes", the trip should go smoothly... unless I start experiencing threes again.
May your days of "threes" be three things that are little enough to take care of easily. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a great day.
