Forgetting Medical Supplies For An Overnight

This past weekend I stayed the night at my fiancés house. We have done this a few times before and brought everything we needed. However, this past weekend as my fiancé was helping me get ready for bed we realized that we forgot my night bag! I wear a small leg bag during the day and a big night bag at night. I was freaking out in my head and figured I would have to get back in my chair and stay in it all night and not really sleep. My fiancé had a great idea and saved the night. We put my wheelchair right next to the bed where I was laying and put a bucket on my seat. Then we hung my day bag over the side of the bed and left it open in the bucket. It totally worked and her idea saved the night. I wanted to share this because in my head I instantly went to worst case scenario before trying to think of another way to make it work. I think a lot of us can relate to that in our everyday lives. When I was in high school one of my teachers taught me a saying that has stuck with me ever since. It is "Improvise, Adapt, and Overcome" and that is exactly what we did that night. I love this quote and think of it every time something does not go as planned. Hope this was a funny story to read and sorry if it is TMI but here are two pictures of what it looked like.
