Oh, look. Something shiny.

Is anyone else out there having trouble concentrating? This is a pandemic in the South as soon as the thermometer hits 85. All of a sudden we slow way down. And we lose our train of thought.

This morning, I went to the warehouse fully intending to be a model of efficiency and accomplishment. I will write a grant. I will learn something new about online fund raising. I will…notice that a lot of the new clothing donated from a major retailer still has the tags on. Well, I’ll just take those tags off and get back to business. Mindless, mind-wandering work.

I return to the computer. Alrighty, then. Let’s get going. I will just give my boy, Noah, a quick call to wish him a happy 22nd birthday and then hit that grant hard. Forty minutes later, I hang up. That boy could talk to a post for five minutes before he realized the post wasn’t talking back. But I like that about him.

Grant. I’ll get back at it now. I read the instructions. It’s a grant about the arts. The only art we fool with are the paintings we get from Kirkland’s.

Pretty, aren’t they? Maybe I could get some grant money if we gave tours to school children. But would that be considered art education or home decorating know-how? Probably the latter.

And, yes indeed. I did spot something shiny that again took my eye off the ball. Jewelry. Our senior centers love their costume jewelry. I sort some to put aside for my lovely but jewelry-challenged elderly ladies.

Betsy and I have been passing in the night (or day, actually) this week with me at the warehouse today and her yesterday. But I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that she, too, has a hard time concentrating now and again. I give you ….sock monkey lady.
