Remembering five hours too late

For months, I've been planning to drive five hours south and visit my mom while Teen was at a rafting camp. It was going to be my opportunity to write for hours and hours each day.

Today was the day. I brought everything I needed. And some things I didn't. Like a jacket. It was 98 here today.

When I pulled up in my mom's driveway, I realized I had forgotten my laptop.

It was like arriving at a long-awaited vacation in Europe and realizing you forgot your wallet.


my brother had a spare laptop.

it was even a Mac.

and I backed up my work on Friday by sending myself an email.

So I downloaded Scrivener and got to work.

And tried not to notice that this laptop is basically a furnace.
