Writer's Workshop- Not for Long

Last fall, when I started c25k, I was going jogging everyday after I dropped off Yvette at school. It was a great habit that I got going and was so proud of myself. This one day, after I was done I was so happy because I had ran for 5 minutes straight! I was over the moon! Then the day got even better because everything was working out for the #MAM in October, and I had just got off the phone with the police department and they okay'd the march. I was jumping for joy. I was still at the track at this time, so I grabbed the keys and started driving home.

I was literally dancing in my seat. Right at that second I didn't make a complete stop at a new stop sign in front of a school. It was a rolling stop. Then a few seconds later.... yup, a cop was right behind me and turned on his lights! HAPPY FEELING? GONE!

I was so bummed. So I pulled over and he walked up to me and I told him I was having the best morning. He didn't respond to that, just said why I didn't stop. I could have lied and said I was not from the area, but I was drenched in sweat and in my work out clothes. I still lied, but I should have just said the truth that it was a new stop sign and I forget to stop sometimes, I told him I didn't see it. Which was a lie because, I did and it was a rolling stop, so he knew I had seen it.

He gave me a ticket, FUDGE! And we were at a bad time financially, I knew we weren't going to be able to pay it. I DIDN'T TELL MY HUSBAND! I kept it from him for over six months! I went to go talk to the judge and got community service. My mom was with me, she knew and we agreed that I would help her at church, as she helps and volunteers for a few organizations, so I helped out for a few weeks.

Then a few months after that hubby found a copy of my hours and he was so mad! I almost got away with it!

Linking up with Mama Kat's writer's workshop!


  1. Wow. That is crazy. Sorry it ruined your day tho!

  2. Oh man! If that cop only knew how disruptive that ticket was going to be for the next 6 months! That being said, we all make mistakes, people get tickets everyday...nothing to get too worked up about especially considering you worked it off.
