#113 We Made It

Blue was scheduled to take the SAT test this morning in Logan at 7:45 a.m. Ok, so I carefully figured out when I needed to get us up, when to leave so that we had time to spare for looking for the building on the USU campus and any other problems that might arise, and our travel time.  When I have to meet an important deadline I have a tendency to mess up my thinking.  That is just what I did this morning. We were about to leave home at 6 a.m., and suddenly thought that we were too early. I had us go back into the house for 45 minutes. As were going to leave again, now 7:00 I realized I had screwed up.  It takes 45 minutes just to get to Logan let alone across town, onto campus, find the "tall" building on US 89.  We also found that the calculator needed batteries! I had a melt down and cried the whole drive over, there was no way we would make it in time.  I had to believe it would work out. BE BELIEVING! I flipped a U-turn across a four-lane hwy, pulled up along a red curb and told Blue to get out and head to "that tall building".  Blue walking, I rolled down the window and yelled, "RUN!" After getting to the building, following the signs, "SAT test upstairs", I saw Blue sitting at a desk. WOW! I looked at my puppy and said, "We made it". All I could do was try and it worked out.
