Has This Ever Happened to You?

This may or may not have recently happened:
l was sitting in my chair by the fire and had just written a letter. I needed an envelope so I ran downstairs to grab one.

Some laundry caught my eye.

Carried it down.
Put it in the basket.

Heard the furnace kick on.

Was reminded to check whether it was time to change the filter.
It was.
Changed it.
Grabbed the old filter, the new filter packaging, and other debris from a nearby waste bin.
Took them out to the garbage can.

Dusted off my hands.
Went back into the house.
Jobs well done—laundry, filter, trash.

Sat back down in my chair by the fire.

Saw the letter.

Chuckled as I walked downstairs to get an envelope. And a stamp!

Being present or being sidetracked?

Has something like this ever happened to you? I'd love to hear your story.
