memory…lost in the corners of my mind

A few weeks ago I realized that Ian’s Sunday afternoon swim class would be starting again soon. I couldn’t remember the exact date, except that I was positive it was sometime in the second half of July. Mental note to self: Look up swim class start date.

A couple of weeks ago I remembered that Ian’s Sunday afternoon swim class would be starting again soon. I also remembered that I had forgotten to look up the specific start date, except that I was positive it was sometime in the second half of July.

Last Sunday I thought again about how Ian’s Sunday afternoon swim class would be starting soon. And, I thought about how I really needed to look up the specific start date, though I was positive it was either this coming Sunday, July 17, or the following Sunday, July 24. Either way, I’m no fool and knew it was definitely time to move this little task up on the priority list, even if it did mean having to open the cabinet in my desk at home to pull out the piece of paper that would give me the answer I needed.

This morning when I got to work, I remembered that I still had not pulled out that piece of paper. Clearly, it was time to take immediate action because the class could be starting this very Sunday. So, I got smart and logged right on to Google. And yep, look at that: Tualatin Hills Parks & Rec has all this information right on their fancy little website! Who knew? Actually, I did know – because that’s how I register for our classes – but I had that piece of paper sitting right there in my desk, so there was no need to go online. I was just positive of that.

So there I am, searching, searching, searching. Wow – they offer a lot of “aquatics” classes for preschoolers! You’d think with all those classes it would be a little easier to get into them. Finally, I locate his class. Here’s what it said:

Start Date: Sunday, July 10

Guess I wasn’t so positive after all.
