I hadn’t done it in years.

(Heck, I haven’t had time to do it in years.)

I’d dropped off the kids at school and had returned to the car.

And I just sat there.

The sun shone as the morning began shaking off its chilly start. Wispy clouds wandered lazily across the baby blue sky. Steam rose from evaporating dew on the winter-green grass.
