When you accidentally text your son some Christmas gift ideas you had for him instead of texting them to your husband... sigh. Nov 14, 2017

        And yes! @ForeverJoy - I did take a screenshot and it will end up being scrapped... at least as part of PL if nothing else!

        @bellbird - good point! lol! @cfile - I do it more often than I care to admit! I have a mac, so a text pops up on my phone... I read it and then go to my computer to type my response... but the last conversation up on my mac is not necessarily the one I mean to respond to... sigh.

        ... but I realized this morning that they had refunded the wrong item, a less expensive item (my order was sent as three shipments, I got two of the three)... so I was back on with them getting that straightened out. All looks good though... still sad that my item didn't make it though (it was a photo booth prop for Clara's b-day party tonight).

        @KatrinaHunt13 I've had this camera 10 years now (Canon 5d). Most trips I'm done with "stuff" on the way home and check it all... never have had an issue. My photos are more important to me than the camera, so I make sure the memory cards are with me. My laptop also stays with me.

        @Tree City They're "solving" this by having one checked liquids bag :-/ Must haves are in their carry ons, extras are in the checked bag... that way if it gets lost, they'll still survive. Teen girl logic.

        I don't know what's wrong with me! I read them over and over and run spellcheck before saving for the web. But... I think that until I post them I'm reading them through my eyes, so I read it how I meant it to be. Once posted, I read through other people's eyes and that's when I notice them.

        I find it helps to literally change what you are looking at. If you type it up in word, put on the "p"-sign, to see all the spacing and edit. Or, change the font, size and colour of what you are looking at. It will seem like all new text.
