Parking Phenomenon, Or Something

Last night I tagged Brian "it" on his way in the door from work and I headed out to Target for the fourth time in a week. I was able to cross my last Christmas gift of 2007 off my list. Miraculously we made it through this season without one charge on our credit cards. Now we'll be eating ramen noodles for the next two months. Just kidding. But it does feel good to be done with the hustle and bustle.

As I pulled into the Target parking lot I noticed that the lot was nearly full. Even those parking spots way out in the back that most days are used as just another roadway were taken. But as I got closer there it was glimmering at me. A wide-open space right there in the front next to the handicap spot. I thought surly there must be a car waiting to pull in, but there was no vehicle in sight. As I pulled in I thought of course this spot is open. The one time I don't have to lug a 20-plus-pound toddler bulked up in his winter gear a half a mile to the door, the front spot is open to my lonesome self. I suppose that's how it goes.


  1. You crack me up! Will you be at grandma's on Christmas? I want to see the 'Wuss Walk' (no youtube at work). If I don't see you, Merry Christmas, Angela :)

  2. Hey Ang-
    It's our turn to be with my side of the family this year so yes, we will be at Grandma's all day on Christmas. We'll bring the walker with so you can see it in person. See you then!
