I lose things. Pens. Socks. Glasses. Earrings. Cars.

I try so hard to keep my mind on what I'm doing, but somewhere between the kitchen and the family room, pens are tucked away, glasses slip into cushions, earrings fall under sofas . . .

If I don't purposely make note of where I park my car at the mall, I have to call a taxi to get home.

Hoop earrings are my favorite.  I've had too many pairs to count.  It's so exciting when one pops up out of no where--especially, if I have the matching one.  Currently, they're all hiding from me.  So back to the store I go, hoping I can buy a new pair that will stick together.

I don't mean to pass the buck, but we all know dryers eat socks.

Yes, I'm a loser, but you know, the good thing is it's like Christmas when I vacuum the sofa! Let the good times roll!!  Pens, glasses, earrings, socks!!  Who knew!!

Tell me I'm not the only one!


P.S. For those of you who are interested, I'm writing about my health journey on a blog on my website. Pop on over to and let's talk.

Well, I officially have ADD, so I hear that most people can lose their keys once or twice a year. IT's a daily occurrence for me, so I feel for you. It's frustrating, but I look at it this way at least no one has to buy me expensive jewels! I'd lose them anyway.

I'm always losing things too. Very upset that I lost an earring on the last trip to AZ and Dave just got them for Valentine's Day! :(

Kristin, Amen to that! Don't buy me any expensive jewelry. Earrings fall out of my ears even. Not always at home so ... I can't count the number of needles and crochet hooks that disappear each week only to be found again later (thankfully). So I guess I'm a loser too. LOL

All my favorite earrings are singles now, but these days you can successfully wear different earrings at the same time and nobody questions sanity. If somebody does, just say, "I've got flair."

That's me, too, Diann! I think it's because I'm so distracted by deep thoughts. (cough, cough)

Jude U. used to wear two different earrings during the week and matching ones on Sunday. Her explanation was that she wasn't complete without God. But she quit doing that. I've been to her house--she's very organized. I suspect she's always had all matching earrings.

When we lived in Richmond, I lost one of the boys in the house and had to call Chris to come home. 40-panicked-minutes later Chris found him sleeping under the sofa(I looked there but was so distraught, I didn't see him)--never disturbed at all from the yelling, doorbell-ringing,whistle-blowing, dog-barking to get him to come out. Guess when you live in a house with dogs, 3 more brothers and two cats, it was a peaceful place to catch a snooze.

LOL, Crystal!!

Liz, my vacuuming the sofa days are over, though I suspect if I did it today I'd find a treasure of things, not the least of which would be pairs of matching earrings. :-)

Oh, yeah. I'm guilty of putting things in a safe place and then forgetting where that was. Sigh.
