As posted by yours truly at RevGalBlogPals, before I forget…
No, it wasn't my turn to do the Friday Five, but it was my job to confirm the new person whose job it is, so herewith, the Forgetful Jones Friday Five, complete with Sesame Street video for those who like such things.
a) What's the last thing you forgot? To pay my car insurance. Which got me a call from a snippy, shaming insurance agent. Which means on Monday I'm finding a new one.
e) How do you keep track of appointments? I love my big UCC calendar with the whole month on it, but I also back that up with my iPhone calendar and make sure to put in alerts for appointments and meetings. Doing that has improved our rate of attendance at the dentist or the orthodontist or the doctor. This means I am syncing up manually, which I try to do at the beginning of each month. When I do that part, the system works brilliantly.
i) Do you keep a running grocery list? Um. Sometimes? Does that count?
o) When forced to improvise by circumstances, do you enjoy it or panic? It depends on how high the stakes are. I'm not proud of having remembered once during the Prelude that I had forgotten to plan a children's message. I learned from that. But most of the time I'm good on the fly. I'm sure it worked out that day, somehow, but I like to give more attention to things and people I believe are important.
u) What's a memory you hope you will never forget? Just one? Who made up this meme? 😉
Holding my newborn children, each so familiar though brand new, each so different and yet so interconnected; the sights on my first trip out West, marvels of geology that increased my sense of awe; Molly singing along with the Gloria at Small Church, "wroo wroo," not the last time she would do such a thing; fireworks seen from a distance across the water.
