LOSING THINGS


Isn't that the truth!??

After 62 years of having a panic attack when I can't find my purse or my keys or my cell phone (thank goodness for the Find Me feature!), I now put my things in the SAME PLACE every time.  My life is so much more serene.

We have ONE key for the pool at the condo.  And ONE key for the Clubhouse.  So we put up a key rack (in a hidden from view secret place!) where we put back the key immediately after returning to the condo.  With three adults taking kids here or there, we all know where to go to find the keys!  Unbelievably, this too is working!

Kate is still in the stage I was in ... trying to race out to do whatever and can't find her XXXXXX.  I hope she doesn't wait 40 more years to get herself to serene.  It pains me to watch her leave for work ... missing something and making 2-3 trips back inside.  There is so much of life that we have no control over.

Finding our personal items doesn't need to be the cause of panic!

  1. I've been good about returning keys to the same place for as long as I can remember. It does simplify things. My phone, too. But glasses! I am always losing track of them and often they are on top of my head. I've also been known to have two pair on top of my head while looking for a pair. LOL

    1. Well ... great! After my cataracts are fixed and I have 20/20 vision ... I'll be losing my reading glasses!! Mr. Ralph had them EVERYWHERE!

  2. My car keys are always in a little pocket in my purse and I don't have a cell phone to lose, so I am pretty serene. Yeah, right!!

    1. I have a cell phone INSTEAD of a land line. Especially because I live in two places!

  3. I can't reach back and figure out exactly when I got control of this, but now I always (almost always) put things back in the same place. If I don't, I'm in a pickle when I go to find it.
