It snowed today. It snowed a lot. It snowed so much that I did not go to my volunteer job today. This is looking out my front door to the driveway.
Well, that was OK because I had plenty of work to do at home. I decided to work on the church website. I am downloading/uploading seven years of recorded sermons and it is a tedious job. In order to prevent myself from making mistakes, I created a check list for each month. When I got to the third month, the printer would not work. Uh-oh. Error message. Printer out of ink. No problem. I always have two spares on hand. I go to the drawer on the right where I ALWAYS put the ink cartridges.
NO ink cartridges! WHAT? I know I bought two black cartridges and two sets of the color cartridges. Where are they? I looked in the same drawer at least five times, as if they would magically appear. I looked in the closet. I went out to my car and looked in the trunk. I was very frustrated. Very. Maybe I accidently threw them out. Maybe I just dreamed I bought extras. Maybe the clerk never put them in my bag. I was upset and needed to re-direct my mind. So I grabbed my current book, sat in the red chair, draped the comfy quilt over my legs, rested the book on a big pillow, and read for several hours.
Later, when I walked back into the office I glanced over to the cabinets under the book shelf and saw a big of plastic bag peeking out.
Now why did I put them in that drawer instead of the drawer where I normally keep them? And why were they still in the bag? Where was my brain the day I decided to store them there? I have decided that one of my best abilities is to safely store things in logical places where I can’t find them when I need them.
I can print now, so I guess I better get back to work on the website. First I have to check email and blogs……….
