Six Sentence Story: Check


I'm joining in again with Six Sentence Stories this week.  I've told this story before, but in different sentences.  It was the first thing I thought of when I saw the prompt:  Check.

"Could you please look in my home e-mail inbox, and forward the new job offer to me?" 

Momentarily forgetting I was signed into John's account, I quickly found the much-anticipated e-mail and forwarded it to my husband.

The computer screen announced, "E-mail sent to John ________."

Heart pounding, tears flowing, I dialed my husband. 

"I did something really bad; I accidentally forwarded your job offer to John _________." 

The epitome of calm, John responded, "Oh, you sent it to my boss," as I vowed that in the future I would always double-check before hitting send.

  3. Well, thankful for a good outcome. And maybe your husband's boss needed to see that offer to appreciate him more.

  5. Oh dear, what a heart-stopping event, and I doubt that the is any of us who haven't miss-sent emails in the past with some interesting and sometimes awful results. You husband is indeed a treasure if he reacted calmly to such news, it shows how much he loves you and that he knows you would never intend such a thing to happen. Great 6SS, Kristi!

Ten Things of Thankful: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful
