If I Only Had A Brain

Well so much for getting those few random thoughts out freeing up space and making everything run better….

We needed a few things this morning.  Just simple things like milk and yogurt.
The Explorer never went anywhere yesterday so the snow from yesterdays storm is still piled on it a bit.
I brushed it off while I was shoveling yesterday, but the windows got crusty with snow/ice.
I am lazy.

So, after Ms. Kindergarten got on the bus, I ran out to start the Explorer.
This way the car would be warm for the baby and I wouldn’t have to scrape the windshield and windows.
I came back in, had a bowl of cereal and looked at the baby.
She looked sleepy already – she had been up a fair amount last night as she is still fighting a cold.
Since she looked sleepy I thought I would sit with her and see if she nods off.
After about 10 minutes she fell asleep.

I put her down.
I grabbed some laundry to put in.
I  finished emptying the dishwasher, and reloaded it.
I sat down at the computer and started putzing around.

I go upstairs to get another load of laundry put together and I realize that it sounds like there is a truck outside.
Ooooh, a delivery maybe – UPS, FedEx?  Everyone likes deliveries!

Errr, no.  It’s the Explorer idiot.

It had been running for about 45 minutes.

  1. Oh, I well aware of it. I was quoted recently as saying (about my wife’s ability to producing fine kids), “even working from behind the eight ball that is my DNA!”


  2. I am embarassed to admit how many times I have done this. Seriously at least 6 times I can think of right now. Once I left my car running in the parking lot of Target during Black Friday. My girlfriend and I were walking towards the car and I am like “why is my car look like it is smoking”.. Yep.. jackass me left if running for over an hour in a PACKED parking lot.. Luckily nobody wanted a Galant that day.. LOL

  3. I have done that sooo many times. I have remote start. So I’ll start her up about 5 minutes before I leave on a cold day. There’s been times I’ve left it running for 30-45 minutes. Good thing I’ve never run out of gas…That would be bad, espoecially if nobody else is home! Glad you noticed it sooner than later!

  4. It takes a Big Man to admit he left it running for 45 minutes. Atleast it was the explorer you left getting warmed up and not the Mrs in the other room…..
