Have you ever…?

I was invited to a brunch gathering at 10 am. As I drove, I reread the message to get the correct address. In reading the message, I saw the brunch was for Sunday not Saturday. Oops! Have you ever done things like that?  Like looking for your glasses when they are on your head? Or trying to locate your cell phone while you are talking on it?

Well, the positive thing is I took a few turns and ended up at a place where I could park my car and get on the local bike trail and enjoy a nice walk. Lots of blue skies, dry sidewalks, fresh air and the knowledge that I would be at brunch with a bunch of lovely people — in 24 hours.

The card’s in the mail … or is it?

The first post I read today gave me quite a chuckle and a sigh of relief. I Forgot to Mail Your Card Today, Mary pretty much summed up my life. Like Ruth, I usually buy cards in advance and then get to them shortly before the event. Many times, however, I scratch my head and wonder – did I already send the card? If not, where is it? If so — what was it?

Mailboxes on a dirt road in ColoradoSad to say I’ve had recipients of my lovely cards wax and wane about the humor, beauty or uniqueness of the ‘said’ card as I stand on the other end of the phone wishing we were on Skype and I could get a glimpse of this work of art!

And I have been known to send out a second card with a note inside saying “In my mind I already send a birthday card to you but since I’m not sure if I actually sent it, here is another one filled with love and happiness.”

Not only do I get chuckles, I often get a phone call telling me how wonderful it was to receive two birthday cards from me!

Now, I know with Ruth’s post and my plethora of experiences, that you must have had something like this happen to you too – right? If you can remember it, feel free to post and give us all a chuckle!
