It's back to working on the flooring again today. Having Mondays and Fridays off is SOOOOO wonderful. The trouble right now is that I can't find an essential tool, a staple puller, that I was using yesterday, and work cannot commence until I find it. If Shell were here, she'd say, “Oh, Mom, you're so creative!” which being translated means, ”You're so scatterbrained!” Right, Shell? I know you read this!!!
When I was at Sharper Image last week I saw a great device for attaching to keys, etc. Trouble is, it was for eight different items that people tend to lose, and it cost accordingly. If I could find such a gizmo for just my keys and my mind, I could save a lot of money and looking time. I would never have thought to put it on the staple puller.
I needed to use the jigsaw this morning. “Dad,” I said when he came over to help, “Where is the jigsaw?”
He looked puzzled. “Jigsaw?”
“Yes, you know the electric jigsaw that I need to cut curves.”
“What's a jigsaw?”
Then the light came on and he said, ”Oh, I know. It's in a box high on the shelf above the workbench.”
I went out and found it there, sure enough, in a box on the shelf, clearly labeled JIGSAW in Dad’s hand.
It’s genetic, this mind thing.
