The bad news: I have lost something (a very insignificant item but it is bugging me that I can’t find it.
The good news: I have cleaned out the junk drawer in the kitchen and have found about 400 pens and pencils to take to my classroom for kids that “forget to bring one.” I also found the spare key to my car. And I found all the Frontline flea and tick medicine I bought for the dog last summer. And I found all the rechargable batteries and charger that I lost last winter.
I also cleaned out the hall closet and got rid of and entire kitchen trash bag full of crap that had been taking up space for the last 4 years (and probably for years before that in our old house and before that the series of apartments the hubs and o have rented apparently I just keep moving it). I found 2 packages of ponytail holders… Too bad my hair is too short for a ponytail. And I found about 30 new toothbrushes and corresponding samples of toothpaste from all our dental visits since we 1st got dental insurance 9 yrs ago. And I found the beach towels I couldn’t find last summer. And I found about 1000 alcohol swabs. Not sure why I bought so many of those but they will probably come in handy.
I also cleaned out the area above our washing machine. I found 3 different plugins for the Vicks vapor sent. Apparently that is where I have stored them at the end of each winter and forget they are there and then go buy a new one. And I found some more Frontline. Its a wonder my dog hasn’t gotten fleas. And I found 7 rolls of duct tape, some scotch tape, magnetic tape, packing tape, and foam tape. Why can’t I ever find this stuff when I need it?
I also cleaned out the vanity drawers in the bathroom. I threw away a lot of stray cotton balls and several old toothbrushes. Who saves old toothbrushes? Apparently this family. I also found a lot of diapers. We have been diaper free for 3 yrs!
But guess what?
I still have not found what I was looking for!!! Good grief!
Does this ever happen to you?
