    After dinner went to check my calendar to make sure I knew where my next small group's meeting was and then I got busy in the kitchen. Phone rang a little after 8 pm, it was one of the gals from my group, me - "What's Up", her - "Are you going to join us at tonight's meeting?" What a dummy I checked where it was but it didn't register that it was TONIGHT. By the time I would have changed my clothes, got my stuff for the meeting together and drove there the meeting would be breaking up. Really wanted to attend this meeting as one of the gals is moving away and I wanted to say GoodBye to her.

    Things happen for a reason.
    Arrange some alone time with your friend before she moves.

    My specialty "dummy" move is to get all ready for the meeting (or whatever event it is), then sit on the couch for a couple of minutes before its time to go. Can't tell you how many times I've fallen asleep and missed things!!

    That is why I write things like this on the calendar hanging on my refrigerator - and sometimes I still forget!!!! :)

    Yes I'm glad that it wasn't. Wouldn't that have been something? The other members really would think I needed a caretaker.
