Now I had thought about it earlier in the week, so I had bought drinks, but I had no fruit in the house. Fruit is mandatory for snack with this year's soccer coach. I think he'd heard about my often used tried and true 'donuts for snack' back-up plan. We have drive thru donut windows up here in Canada – it makes getting snacks for kids very easy.
So, I grabbed a cooler and the drinks and at least I had half of what I needed.
I then dropped off my son for warm up at the game, went over to the local grocery store, bought some oranges and then spent twenty minutes leaning over the trunk of my mini-van breaking the oranges into pieces and placing them in the Tupperware container I had dragged along.
Oranges are sticky.
I then drove back to the soccer field and got there ten minutes into the game but I was the hero as I had the snack ready for half time.
It all worked out but I hate it when I forget this kind of thing. I'm blaming the fact that I forgot on my head cold but in reality I think it's probably due to old age.
The only good thing about forgetting this kinda stuff is that the more I forget, the less I have to do.
Hmmmm. This just might be a good thing after all.
