What am I losing, you ask? Well, anything that's not tied down, it feels like. My mind, perhaps?? Friday I reached for the pocket in my purse where I keep my sunglasses - the first pair of really good sunglasses I've ever sprung for. What in the world made me think that I could hang onto an expensive pair of prescription lineless bifocal sunglasses, when I can't keep a pair of $10 Target ones?? I took a chance and really loved having such a nice pair of sunglasses. But, alas, they were not in the pocket where they belonged Friday morning. I wracked my brain for my last memory of having them in my hand. I was certain I had them when I came back to my office from lunch on Thursday.
I e-mailed my co-worker, asking her to hunt in my office, to put my mind at ease. No luck. They weren't anywhere to be found in my office. I fretted all week-end.
In the meantime, I went to the grocery store on Saturday, as is my custom. I'm a list-making, menu-planning kind of shopper. I have had this little rectangular Tupperware box for I can't remember how many years, in which I keep my coupons. Two of those coupons were worth $20 this week. I had also bought a birthday card for my aunt, had bought two garbage stickers (we have to put stickers on our garbage bags - long story!), my menus for the last year at least, and my little grocery list notebook, which contains a calculator on which I keep track of how much over my budget I am going.
I no longer have this little box - I feel lost without it! I have checked back with the store twice. I remember having it in my hand at the store. Where in the world could it be??
Some good news finally - I went to work this morning, praying that I would find my sunglasses. Sure enough, they were way under my desk. I keep my purse under there and when I went to put my sunglasses back in the appropriate pocket, I guess I missed! Thank you, Lord.
Now, if only I could lost these extra pounds so easily! And never find them again.
