I have -for many years now -had problems with putting things in places so I would know where I have them and then, promptly forgotten where those places are, what items I put there too.
Yes, it's a frustrating thing to deal with especially when the memory isn't exactly up to the par level it used to be -that's using the assumption there (very liberally) that it was EVER up to a par level to begin with!
Anyway, the latest things to be among the missing items I've been searching all over the house for are a cloth shopping bag that contains the embroider patterns for items/kits I have completed and has any left over floss from those kits in the plastic bag the kit came in. That's been missing for a couple of months apparently but I didn't know it was missing until last week when I went in search of it to locate a tabletopper bag with a whole spool of gold filigree thread in that bag! Yes, that was a very valuable commodity that I really could use that spool of thread now to enable me to complete an identical tabletopper to the one that came in that plastic bag! (I had bought a kit with a nordic Christmas design and it came with a spoon -a fairly large spool -of gold filigree thread in which the whole tabletopper was to be embroidered with that thread. However, at the time, I didn't like the way the thread was difficult to work with so I didn't use it and instead, embroidered that piece all with white floss. However, I had also purchased an identical kit to that -same thread, yes -and recently decided to risk my sanity by doing this other tabletopper using the gold filigree thread. Well there's not enough of the thread to complete the tableopper so I happened to think of the other project bag in which I had the other spool of gold filigree thread that I had opted not to use before and that would solve my dilemma now if I could just find that one stinking bag with those directions and extra, left-over floss in it!)
Now, the next item that has gone missing here is a container holding a whole bunch of cd's -favorites -music by solo artists, by groups, and a whole lot of Christmas music too! I also had another plastic container that held the many and varied tape cassettes I had accumulated and that were still in working order too -also, a lot of Christmas music in that box too!
And of course, neither container can be found!
Today now, the most recent missing items -clothes basket!
Yeah, now where in blazes did they go anyway?
Missing at least 2 baskets -one is white, rectangular, plastic with the handle part on one end of it split and the other is a very nice, sturdy oval shaped wicker basket!
Now how could clothes baskets be hidden anyway?
And trust me -I was not the person who used them last -which was just over the past weekend!!! So don't blame me for putting these baskets in a place where I'll know where I have 'em and have forgotten where that place is because I didn't do that -not this time, anyway!
