You know I lose everything. The biggest problem, other than I’m alawys going in too many directions, is that I pick something up, have a plan, get sidetracked, totally forget what I was fixing to do or where I put whatever I had picked up and . . it’s gone, sometimes forever it seems.
Over the weekend, I had a new HSA card that came in the mail. I picked it up to go put it in my wallet, then Addie wanted me to cut some fabric to make a blanket for her doll. I have no idea what I did with that card. It has to be here somewhere. I remember picking it up, heading to my wallet, then stopping to go help Addie. Why didn’t I just put the darned card in my wallet . . half a second is all it would have taken?
See that blue floss that is outlining that flower or whatever it is on the left side of the center motif? I was using it last night. Cannot find it tonight. I didn’t pick it up and move it unless it got picked up with something else and I didn’t know but what’s weird is that all my silk floss is in zippered plastic bags and they’re all on a ring so how would I have lost that one bag?
I spent over an hour looking for that bag of floss. I looked in the books I had open today. I looked under my chair. I looked all around my chair. I just don’t have a clue. I ordered another skein. I took the slip cover off and looked under it and in the cracks and crevices of the chair. Nope . . can’t find it! I have plenty of stitching to do on this project so it isn’t like I’ll be waiitng for the floss to arrive so I can stitch again. Thank goodness the floss was in stock!
It’s one thing when I lose something and I know I was being careless and not paying attention but when I lose something and there’s just no explanation . . that is even more frustrating.
