Well, not literally, but I am losing all of my stuff…..and that is making me feel like I am losing my mind. Last week I misplaced a set of keys and my very favorite sunglasses. I have looked everywhere. I have back tracked and tried to remember the last time I had them. I have NO idea where the keys could be. I was loading the car when I lost them. I was only walking back and forth between the car and the house. It shouldn’t be that difficult to locate them.
Unfortunately, this is not a new occurrence for me. I have been a chronic misplacer my whole life. My parents had to come bail me out multiple times in high school because I locked my keys in the car. Unfortunately, it is not a habit I have grown out of. I guess I just can’t focus on many things at once. I can’t train myself to consciously put my important things in the same place all the time. I find my keys wherever I was when I decided I needed an extra hand for something else. So I have found them on the kitchen counter, dryer, on top of the fridge, on the floor, bathroom counter, even on the window sill. I do the same thing with my cell phone and apparently now my sunglasses.
Obviously I need help. I am, for the most part, a fairly organized person. Having a child has made me question just how organized, but most of the time I feel pretty good about my organizational skills. I tend to go a bit crazy, though, when I can’t find something that I KNOW i just had!
