I got up early, checked off needed items and got dressed. Then I went downstairs to make sure transportation would be coming at about 8 am. After he located my name I ran to Starbucks to grab a cup of coffee and oatmeal. Then I sat and talked a while with people I had met over the last few days.
As the transportation arrives they called names to get on board– yep you guessed it my name was not on the final list. The guys are running around telling me to wait and wait I did. The bus was full but I could catch the next one. No thank you I wanted to be on the one where I kind of sorta knew some of the people.
As a woman of a certain age I have learned that if it is not life threatening–let it go. They credited my card and are still apologizing as I am typing this on my Samsung Galaxy Note 2– trying to find something else for me to do. I keep thinking that if I could get a strong cup of coffee I would be fine because in less than 4 hours I have something else planned.
I can remember the time when it may not have gone this way, but again it is not life threatening. I step back and the guys and I talk about other things to do, and we come to a sense that I am okay. Life happens, and sometimes it does not happen the way you want it to.
As I read my book and look at what God has created I remember that “thisisyour(my)bestyear”, and I am gonna enjoy it. I am off to Old San Juan in now less than 3 hours. Educators always have plan B.

I swear that sometimes I live on Plan B. At least I do when I remember to plan one!
