A good idea…

One of the standard things I say when Jim and Jesse leave for the day is “Have a good day.” I really do mean it every day, but sometimes we can say routine things without really thinking about it.

One day as Jesse left for school, I absent-mindedly said, “Have a good idea!”

He responded, “Ooookay?”

Then I caught my mistake. “DAY! Have a good day!”

Sometimes a good idea can make for a good day. πŸ™‚ At least we started the day with a laugh, and had another when Jim later quipped that that’s how Steve Jobs’ mom used to send him off to school. πŸ™‚

Then a while back I was using Jim’s car and the keyless remote wasn’t working, probably needing a new battery. I was trying to figure out how to get in the car and asked Jesse if he remembered the code. He did, but he looked pointedly at the keys in my hand.

I don’t know where my mind is lately. πŸ™‚ I do have several “stray thoughts” I’d love to take time to untangle and sort through. Writing is the best way for me to do that, where I can pull them out and lay them side by side and then think about them some more, whereas when I’m just thinking them through they stay jumbled. Maybe next week…

In the meantime, have a good day…and if you have a good idea while you’re at it, all the better. πŸ˜‰

  1. I loved reading this! I often get absent minded and misplace my words, especially when I am busy multitasking, keeping the family moving.
    Continued success.

  2. Didn’t see a like button but would have pushed it. Yes, familiar as I too am mid 50’s caretake for my husband and mother. I like that thought… have a good idea! Hope you have many today!

  3. Glad I’m not the only one who has these moments. πŸ™‚ I sometimes worry about myself so it’s always encouraging to hear it’s more common than I realized. If I’m going to go crazy at least I’ll be in good company.
