The older boy has speech therapy on Thursdays, so I raced to the store to grab dinner before he could get home. In unloading the groceries I forgot I'd opened the back hatch of the van, and left it open for a whole ten minutes. When we got into the car to go to therapy, it was dead. Not like clickety-click dead, but like totally dead. My battery's been on the apparent verge of death for a while, and I was thinking about having it replaced tomorrow (when I'm taking the car in for an oil change). But... well... I guess I'm going to go ahead and replace it tonight, just as soon as AAA gets here. Stupid van.
