I knew it was unheard of to pull into the Telus World of Science's parking lot tonight and find it virtually empty. Especially since we were attending a members-only advance IMAX screening of Amazon Adventure.
We knew from the last members-only event we attended that a full house is the norm for these things, so it was bizarre to see the parking lot so barren.
Which could only mean one thing: I got the wrong date.
Looking down at our tickets, I re-read them and saw that the event is actually taking place next week on the 15th, rather than tonight.
Cue the tears and the devastation in my kids' voices.
"But mom, I told EVERYONE that I was seeing this tonight! I even hurried up and RAN out of daycare for this!"
It's true. I mixed up the dates and disappointed the entire family. My 'type A' personality is having difficulty even processing this type of error.
(So maybe I do need a vacation after all... by myself.... in a very tidy cabin free from clutter and any distractions.....)
