I emptied my WHOLE bag looking for a post it note on which was written a work related password and log in for the audit I have coming up – sheer panic started to set in as I need to finish off the paperwork today but without that post it note, I’m sort of screwed……so I’ve spent 10 minutes sifting through my bagIn order to maintain a level of composure, I decided I would write, that always seems to calm me down
Awhile ago, I went through this similar exercise, writing about what was in my bagHere’s what’s in my bag today….and by bag, it’s the same tote I was carrying back in October….I know we’re supposed to switch out bags for seasons and other crazy reasons but I don’t – I used to switch out bags but I kept losing things….I’m safer in one bag at all times, trust me on this one….

And in the bottom of my bag?A mixture of mulch, crushed food substances (I’m guessing cheerios, pretzels and possibly more fruit snacks, some chewed some not), dirt, sand (?), and a whole lot of coffee stains (which also adorn the handles and the sides of the bag….inside and out)

I’m trying to close the month, prepare for an Audit and this morning at 3am, I woke up and remembered I have a Qualifying App that needs to be completed today as well – my palms are sweaty, my stomach is turning, my nerves are shot and it’s not even 8:30Wait
I just found my Post It NoteOn my monitor….the one I am looking at right now…it’s next to the one about the error codes in Jonas….on the right hand side…its one of 4…how did I miss that…..
I’m adding this episode to my ongoing list of how I know I am on the verge of 40…………..now could someone please start praying for me?
