So, last night I was able to escape my house without my two kids for the first time in a loooong time. I felt fabulous and was in a great mood. It's getting cold out at night where I am and while I was driving out to run errands I passed a police guy on detail who was obviously just getting set up for the evening/night/whatever. I was on my way to CVS and while I was there the cop came in looking for handwarmers/gloves/earmuffs or something to keep him warm, but they didn't have any out yet. I didn't think much of it, but as I was walking out, it was getting really cold out, so it popped into my head to run to the shopping plaza (which was just outside of walking distance for a guy "on duty") and picked up some gloves and a scarf for him.
It was so easy since I didn't have the kids with me, I just felt like if I had been in that situation it would have meant a lot to be warm. So I walked up, gave him the stuff and left.
But I feel like kind of a goober for some reason. I guess that I am that insecure? Does anyone else feel foolish when doing something? My DH thinks I'm cuckoo for doing it - we don't have a lot of extra money, and I actually need gloves for myself (but didn't get them).
Anyway....I keep over analyzing it - it was cold last night, but not freezing...did I go overboard? The dude probably thinks I'm a weirdo. There are so many people that are in more need of that stuff than him. What if he's an A-hole? I dunno. Is this weird??
