Mouse Control

Sometimes I just have to laugh at myself...

My main computer is placed underneath the desk in the kitchen, and the monitor, wireless keyboard, and wireless mouse are on top. I also have a laptop/tablet computer that I mainly use in the family room.  Its home is on top of a table next to my side of the couch.

The other day I was getting ready to go on an adventure and needed to take my laptop with me.  When  i went to bed the night before I moved the laptop mouse into the kitchen next to my purse (which is part of my system for remembering things).  The next day I got busy doing too many things at once; all of a sudden I remembered the laptop. 

I grabbed a mouse and went into the family room. When I tried to shut the laptop down I couldn't get the mouse to work. Growling, I used my finger and the tablet function to do it, then turned off the mouse and put everything into the computer bag.

The next time I sat back down at the desk computer its mouse was gone, and a light bulb went off.   I looked over to the island, where the laptop mouse was still perched on top of my purse. Shaking my head at myself, I backtracked to the computer bag, where I removed the kitchen mouse and replaced it with the correct one.
