On Wednesday I had made plans to meet up with a local etsy customer to deliver her banners. I was very anxious to get it done because she actually placed the order in early December and the banners had been finished for moths, it was just hard to coordinate our schedules. We planned to meet at 11:30 on Granville Street near the comic book store, which is perfect because on Wednesdays Taylor goes to the comic book store after work. To make the outing a bit more interesting for the lil ones I decided to leave early, at 9:30, and walk the Seawall around Yaletown before meeting Taylor in Gastown and heading up to Granville.
It was a totally gogeous day so the walk was amazing, but I forgot to bring any snacks (like, I packed snacks, I just didn’t put the snack bag in the stroller) so Gwen started to get a little grumpy as we headed off the Seawall. Other than that it was fine, until I we got to the corner of Robson & Granville, half a block from the meeting place, when I realized I FORGOT TO BRING THE BANNERS. Like, the ENTIRE REASON I’d even gone out was to deliver them! It was 11:10, so I had twenty minutes to basically run home, pick up the banners and get back down to Granville. Sym was home (she’d just gotten her braces adjusted) so I called and asked her to grab the banners and come meet me, but in spite of my telling her which street to go down she went down a parallel street and I ended up going all the way to our house before I called her again to be like “WHERE ARE YOU????”
Anyway, I was able to make it back in time and get them to the customer, but geez. What a classic move on my part.
Today Taylor and I took Gwen around the Stanley Park section of the Seawall (I remembered snacks this time). Before we left the house I thought it was going to be another nice day but when we got down the hill it was super cloudy and grey. I was a little worried it was going to rain but I decided to go ahead anyway, and once we came around the cliff below Prospect Point it was all blue skies and sun the rest of the way.
