When I woke up this morning, on my first day back in Boston after a two-week adventure in California, I KNEW I had left something behind there.
I don’t mean that I left my heart in San Francisco, although I love that area of the country so much, I am instituting a 1.5 year plan to move there, after my son graduates high school and leaves for college.
No, when I woke up, I thought
I left the power cord for my laptop at my friend Lawry’s house.
And I could visualize and play back the exact moment when I needed to remember to pack it, but didn’t .
So, while I’m writing this, I have 20% of my laptop battery left, so I need to act fast and efficiently to get this post out to you today, people.
Ooops! It’s 19%, now.
So, I can’t put too much stuff in this post. But I will say these things:
- We have too much stuff to keep track of, so it’s inevitable that we’re going to forget and leave things behind, sometimes, and
- I’ve had too much stuff on my mind lately, and I really appreciated the time away in California as a way to breathe, relax, learn, connect with people, and get back in touch with my priorities.
Ooops! 17% battery power and the indicator on my laptop had TURNED RED!
I have too much stuff I wanted to show you visually today, too. But I’m just going to show you this, which I saw from the “airtrain” I took yesterday from the rental car place to San Francisco Airport:
That’s a good sign, isn’t it?
My battery is at 13% (my laptop battery, NOT my pacemaker battery, thank goodness), so I’m going to publish this sucker for you all. Next step? Finally, making it to the Apple Store, where I have other business to take care of.
And since one of my priorities and relearned goals from this trip is to ask for help, could somebody post an appropriate song in the comments?
12% … so I just want to thank each and every one of you, for visiting here today.
