Oh, Brother! Why can’t I keep up with things? Don’t answer that! I know why . . because I’m a slob and I live in a cluttered house and I just put things down and don’t remember where I put them and then they get buried and . . oh, goodness, I have to do better.
After we got the new MP3 players last week, I realized I haven’t seen my iPod in a while. I thought I knew exactly where it was. I honestly thought it was on a shelf in the garage. Several months ago (well, really .. it was more than several months . . it was back when we kept having snow!) I was real faithful about going to the YMCA almost every day and I’d use my iPod. I just left it in my car but when I went to get my oil changed before Paducah (April), I took the iPod out of my car and stuck it on a shelf in the garage so . . I thought I knew right where it was. But I must’ve moved it because I can remember saying to myself . . you shouldn’t leave that there because you’re not going to remember where you put it! Yep, that’s exactly what happened.
So I began looking for it but I didn’t want Vince to know I was looking for it because I’m always looking for something and he always says to me . . If you wouldn’t lay things around and forget where you put them, you wouldn’t spend so much time looking for stuff! Well, he’s right. There . . I said it! He’s right! I’m wrong! Darn it! Maybe I’ll just get on the computer right now and order another iPod . . white . . just like the one I lost and he’ll think I found mine and he won’t say to me every day . . Did you find your iPod? If you wouldn’t lay things around and forget where you put them … But, I don’t need another iPod.
But . . there’s good news. While looking for the iPod, I found:
This is a bunch of Splash fabric that I knew I had, wanted to use in a quilt last week and couldn’t find it. Don’t ask me why it was in a box under the cutting table. If you wouldn’t lay things around and forget where you put them …
Then I found the 2nd tennis shoe to my favorite pair. It had been missing for a while so I was real happy to find it. We don’t wear shoes in the house so I don’t even know how my tennis shoes ended up downstairs!
Then I found 5 calculators. I lose them too. Stick them in a tote back, walk over to the computer with them and . . lay things around and forget where you put them …
Then I found these cards!
These were cards Vince had bought. I’m quite sure he bought them while we were dating because (1) they were in a bag from a Hallmark store in Athens, GA and that’s where he lived while we were dating and (2) he doesn’t “waste money on cards” any more! I’m betting he doesn’t even remember that he bought them. Maybe I could score some brownie points if I sent one to him every now and then! Nope . . he’d think I was doing something I shouldn’t do and he might check the bank statements or something! 🙁
And, I found my little iPod Nano or whatever you call then little bitty ones. You can bet that within a week or so, I will have lost it again.
I’m at that point where I’m saying God, if you’ll just let me find that iPod, I’ll never lose anything else. I’ll clean my house and never let it get cluttered as long as I live!
Oh, heck . . finding the iPod isn’t worth all that. One day we’ll move or I’ll clean house and I’ll find the old iPod. Haven’t needed it since April .. probably won’t miss it much.
