A Simple Task Often Goes Astray....

This afternoon I....
  • Went to get a bar of soap from the bathroom to put at the kitchen sink...
  • While there I grabbed the towels and put them in the washer.
  • At the washer I noticed some bottled water that needed to be placed in the cupboard.
  • In the cupboard I saw some orange slices to put into jello.
  • Remembered I was supposed to make a phone call...took me 20 minutes to get a live person.
  • Checked my computer for email.
  • Went to the kitchen.
  • Remembered I needed to get a bar of soap from the bathroom.
Life often takes a detour. And the older I get, the longer the detour. *she said with a wry smile*

Ahh. . . this helps my feelings! At least I'm not the only one taking detours throughout my day. Kinda' wears one out, however!!

LOL.

I don't have a prayer. I do that now. :)

I know the feeling. :-)

I'm not sure that's an age thing.

I came up to my computer to do something. I have moved some files to the server, read some blogs, cleaned out my email and still haven't done what I needed to do.

I have forgotten what I needed to do.

I will have to go back downstairs until I remember.

LOL. Been there, done that, got a tee-shirt.

I do this WAY too often! Thanks for stopping by! I've only detasseled 2 days in my life. THAT was enough for me and I got a job at a grocery store instead.

Wait, that's my life too!

This would describe my typical day, and I thought I was the only one!

Nancy said...

Oh my, I do this all the time! I'm so glad to know others 'like me' are out there!

From one detour queen to another, it comforts me to know God is with me wherever I am! As of late, I haven't journeyed in blogville much, but tonight I'm here visiting again and thanking God for your posts, your candidness, your humor, and most of all your heart for Jesus.
