The list was long, and getting longer. My husband and I had an agenda, and it was to be handled in one trip to the Twin Cities. While the high gas prices invite consolidation, a day trip is a nice excuse to hang out together too. My husband rattled off his errands, I added mine, and we wisely decided writing them down would be a good idea. Actually it was a completely necessary idea since neither one of us can rely on our memory when it is needed most. With each addition and subtraction my paper list was getting as wrinkled as that apple I keep meaning to remove from the fruit bowl.
Energized, we left the house early with our library books, bank statements, insurance quotes, and cell phones. As we approached the Metro area, I realized the only thing I had forgotten was the list. Oh well. The day was still full, most of our errands were accomplished, and we had a blast laughing about our foibles. It was the best part of my day.
