1) realizing the automatic thermostat batteries are dead today rather than figuring it out when we come home to frozen pipes
2) the red wine is nicely chilled when you give up and pour it after finding blood droplets all over the house and realizing that you have to determine which of four cats has a uti tonight so you can drop him or her off at the vet before the cab comes at 8:30 tomorrow morning. And the vet drop off is after two separate trips to drop off dogs at the spa. New Orleans will be worth it if I manage to get there!
The first sip of cheap red wine tasted so good that it brought tears to my eyes.
