Funny how things work out sometimes…

So, we’re driving back home (13 hour drive) and all of a sudden, we decide to stop somewhere with 4 1/2 hours to go on the drive. Not planned at all.

I had a Baseball Mogul League draft that I thought I had taken care of (sent in my draft list, etc.), so I didn’t need to be there. But, it turns out that I didn’t and if I hadn’t gotten there (I got there with 15 minutes to spare), I would have been forced to pass on both of my picks. Instead, I was able to make my picks.

Also, the Harry Potter special on ABC was later that evening and it had seemed like we were away from home every day except for the one day it was going to be on. We don’t really get ABC at home, so we weren’t going to see it. But, because we stopped, we were able to watch most of it.

Funny how things work out sometimes.
