Now, Where Did I Leave That?

I wouldn't like to say that I am becoming forgetful, really. Nor would I quite qualify myself as blind as a bat. But there are certain things I keep loosing and I need help finding. My glasses, my coffee and occasionally, my beer.

My glasses are the worst culprits.  In my mind,  I only ever put them in two places so it always baffles me when they're not in either. We have it down to a science, I holler that I can't find them and the household goes into a well rehearsed routine. One of my children heads upstairs and the other starts opening the pantry and the freezer in search of them.
(I only left them in the freezer once.)  If my husband happens to be home, he'll look too muttering all the while, "why can't you just put them in the same place every time?"  My reply, naturally, is that I am not always in the same place when I need to take them off!  But I always leave them either here, by my chair, or in the bathroom by the sink.  He replies, ever so helpfully, "sure you do."  Invariably, they are found somewhere that I know I did NOT put them and off we go.

Then there is my coffee.  Mine ends up in places I KNOW unequivocally,  that I didn't put it. It is the malicious coffee fairies. Because why on earth would I leave a hot cup of coffee on the pantry shelf? Or on top of the printer? Or in one of the kids bedrooms? But my glasses and my coffee have ended up in all three to my bafflement.

This could explain a lot.

At one time I was constantly loosing my glasses. Now due to neccessity they are a permanent fixture on my nose. I even forget to take them off and I have to had them to my husband to put on the night stand because WALLLA I have laid down and forgot to take them off.

My coffee oh boy. Hood of the truck, washing machine, back of the toilet, on my desk, dryer, living room, den, dresser, bookshelf, I could go on forever and dont ever let me go outside with a cup of coffee. We might find it next month.

Totally relate Great Blog.

ha, in our house, I put my stuff in the same place, but dh is always looking for his wallet, his keys and his phone. I have to help because I have the "find it' -mom gene.

I love the squirrel poster! :)

I'm constantly losing things! It's embarrassing. What's funny is that I have a post-in-process about this very thing . . . Once again our minds are on the same track. :)

Thank you for coming by my blog and leaving a comment showing your support of sexual abuse survivors. The more voices that join supporting survivors, the better. It has been through the support of others that God has worked so much healing in my life and the life of my family.

Thank you.

I lose my car keys and y house keys...I once left them on top of the car and drove around with them like that for a day (I used the extra set for driving). Thank you for solving the coffee mystery..I know it was those squirrels, now I have proof.


Thank you for stopping by on my SITS Day.

Hi Lizzie,
I had to write again. One - I'm almost there with glasses. Some weeks I need the them...the next week I won't. Kind of strange. Two - I love the Lonely Doll! I can't believe I've found someone else who does! It was a favorite of mine from childhood.

I'm following you now!
