Oops!

I've gotten to the point where I need to write things down... every thing! I recently spent so much time trying to schedule a meeting that would accommodate every person's busy agenda that I completely forgot to make assignments for the meeting once a date and time had finally been agreed upon! Groan. That little fact dawned on me very early this morning, the meeting is at 11:30 AM today! And so it goes... last minute phone calls and e-mails to the rescue. In my mad search for devotions (which was the assignment that I issued to myself) I ran across this online. I jotted down the web address on a piece of notepaper. WOW! This was just the powerful and timely message that I needed today, I'm sure it wasn't a coincidence, either. Taking the time to listen is a skill I need to develop. I'm bookmarking this website, that way I don't need to remember where I put the note!


Life is Good!
...and that is something I do remember...

You are not the only one that has to write everything down. Rest assured that you are in good company. A couple years ago I discovered OneNote from Microsoft. I use it for EVERYTHING! You can download a free trial.

I'm glad that never happens to me! Oh, wait, I did forget something once. I just can't remember what it is.
I also write reminders to myself, otherwise....

Dr. Phil had an excellent show on last week about memory loss. It was a good one. It talked about exercise and foods we eat or don't eat that we should be. Dang, if I forgot the book mentioned also! Hee! Should have written it down.

My problem is I write it down and forget where I put the note.

I think we've all done something like that. Now, my ipod touch is with me EVERYWHERE and I've set it up to synch all of my calendars and my husband's calendar. Now I've even got my house hold cleaning schedule set up (I follow flylady.net), and I'm slowly adding all of my contacts. I LOVE it!

I read Pastor Kerry's devotions too. He's a very wise man! :-) I can't trust my memory, as good as I think it still is. And it's so funny what big things slip out the cracks and what crazy little things I remember that I'll never, ever need again.
