This is the chapter in which I am so distracted about losing my journal that I accidentially mail my idea notebook to California, then find my journal. And buy someone a cookie.
FOUND! Turns out my journal was playing a really good game of hide + seek. It was found this afternoon by the service advisor *under* the driver's seat of my car! I was so happy I bought him a cookie. My cheeky little journal, on the other hand ... I think I'll put it on a leash ... or at the very least put my name + # inside. Relief.
Before all this euphoria, however, I was still very distracted about my journal. So much so that when I was at the post office boxing up a customer's order, I absent-mindedly packed my idea notebook! I didn't realize this until after I left the post office and was looking for my notebook. When I went into the post office, it was in my bag. When I left, it wasn't. So ... there's a customer in California who is going to get a surprise (and an e-mail from me tonight!) What is wrong with me? Egads!
