I have no clue where my brain was this morning!

This weekend I'm setting up a fundraiser for my charity walk and I wanted to print out some pamphlets to pass out to people. Well, all the pamphlets were 2 pages, and I was worrying about using up that much paper and then I'd have to staple them... I had just started to print them out when I remembered that I can print them two-sided! UGH!!! I had to stop the printer, cancel the print job - only 7 printed - then tell it to print on both sides. I print 2-sided all the time to save paper, but for some reason it was not sinking in this morning. I did go back and print on the 2nd side of the ones I first printed just to save a bit of paper - and stapling.

I do that kind of thing all the time! The other day I spent half an hour typing recipes to send to my brother, and then I remembered that I have a scanner!! I scanned the ones that were left and it took no time, and I was so annoyed at myself for not realising that I could use the scanner at first. At least you only printer out 7 before you could cancel the printing and start the 2 sided printing :)

It is so awesome to know that so many of us are human. We are in a great company together.

Your mind is just busy with many many things. It needs a nap. Be kind to your mind. At least your figured it out pretty quickly and you were able to do what was needed to fix it.

My husband thought it was VERY funny because I usually have the most frugal plan in mind and this one totally escaped me at first.
