Today, somehow my Giveaway doesn’t seem to be working. My day was full of mundane details and tasks, and my brain feels tired and slow. It’s 8:15pm and I am wondering what happened to my “giving mojo.” I saw quite a lot of people today as I navigated my schedule. At 8:30 this morning, two guys came to install a new shed in our back yard. After they had toiled away in 90-degree heat for 4 hours, I gave them a tip, but it didn’t occur to me to give them an object. Then, my brother Alan’s friend came to take him to San Diego for a week. She gave me something, which was very unexpected, but when I offered her something, she declined politely – it was tea and she is cutting down on caffeine. My son Theo and his friends were at an art class together, but somehow I failed to connect a gift to that event. In the afternoon, I called a nursing home to try to give them something but ended up leaving a message. To make matters worse, one of the gifts I sent to a friend a couple of weeks ago came back to me in the mail – I’d made a mistake with the address! Ugh – nothing but misses today.
