Tuesday night I left the church and was part way home when I remembered that I had not grabbed the checks to pay for my retreat.
After I'd packed, I was on my way to pick up a colleague for the retreat when I remembered I'd left my cell phone on the charger. So I turned around and went home to get it.
When I arrived back at the church yesterday afternoon, I had to ask Administrative Assistant to open my study. I couldn't find my keys. She was amused, and said she almost called when she got home Tuesday to remind me to take the checks. I admitted I had to come back to get them.
Last night I spent some time looking for my church keys, but couldn't find them. So today I asked Administrative Assistant for the spare keys I needed once before. She suggested I might want to go back to wearing them around my neck. I've always kept the church keys and the food keys on a lanyard, and when Daughter was home they were around my neck most of the time. Right before she left today, she went into the Christian Ed office. She then came into my study and presented me with a new lanyard. The keys are now around my neck. If only I could do that with all the other things I lose or forget....
