Here’s the haps:
I carry these little left-handed notebooks made by a company called Field Notes with me everywhere I go. They are very rugged and long-lasting, made from quality materials. I used to keep a handful of 3 X 5 cards in my pocket but I like the idea of the little notebooks because they don’t get lost as easily. They are quite rugged and survive being carried in my back pocket as well as my shirt pocket. My work uniform doesn’t have a shirt pocket which really annoys me because I carry everything there. My phone, my notebook and a pen all have to find other homes on my person while I’m working. Of course, if that’s the biggest problem I ever have to face in life, I’m probably doing pretty well.
The idea with these, as with the 3 X 5 cards before them, is that when I get an idea or inspiration, oh, say, for a blog post, maybe, I will immediately write it down so I will have something to post about. Yuppers. That’s the idea. Sho ’nuff is.
Except I don’t do it and then I wind up with nights like tonight where I really want to post something and I can’t think of anything to say. So, my New Year’s Resolution or Goal or Plan or whatever you like to call it is going to be to start writing down all these brilliant thoughts that come into my head while I’m standing on a ladder in the middle of the workday so I will have something to write about in my blog.
