It’s always in the last place you look.

Friday, July 26, 2013

Thank you sparkers for the support and advice about my missing notebook.

After blaming pixies, fairies and time travelers from the future, of course the culprit was ME and in a small way my blog.

I wrote about my “score” at Goodwill finding a cheap solution to clothes for our upcoming trip. I added my purchases to the things I plan to pack which are systematically arranged on a little used futon. Unfortunately, I put them on TOP of the notebook where I had detailed exactly what I wanted to have with me for a month in a foreign country.

So being an organized person doesn’t rule out moments of carelessness or stupidity.

Anyway, after venting about my misplaced “life” I took the advice to just do something else. The something else was to try on my vacation clothes to be sure I had appropriate stuff for all occasions with mix and match colors. Part of the way through my one woman fashion show, there was my notebook.

Try on travel clothes – checked off! Yea! I’m back on-track.

    Glad to hear you found the notebook. Kind of figured you would, since notebooks do not have legs. :D

    I am so happy you found your notebook! How fun to try on clothes for your trip. I am going to work on trying on clothes for work next month.

It is always so nice to finally find the lost item. Yesterday I spend time with my son looking for his cell phone. It was great to find it.

    I would still be looking for that notebook!

    Other than praying my two things are back-tracking-if I can remember and trying again later. It's when I gnaw on the loss like a dog with a bone that I become totally frustrated.
Love that you are traveling again, actually a little teensy bit jealous too.

    It must be a Spark thing, and you got good advice for how to find it!

Another of my SparkFriends, whom I think you'd like, had the same thing happen with a lost carpenter's square not long ago. Take a look at her blog, and the blog before it (which is picture filled and even more impressive).

  I often lose my glasses....thank goodness my son knows where to look otherwise I would be seeing nothing but a big blur each day. Very frustrating to forget where you put things when they were just in your hand!

Have a great vacation
