Yesterday I visited a too-long forgotten toy box brought to mind by a friend.
Today I found something I’d thought lost when an earlier laptop decided to commit Hara-Kiri.
I love these reminders that I’m getting old…because now when I think I’ve lost something irreplaceable, I can at least hold out hope (if I remember to) that I’ve just forgotten that I took steps to make sure that didn’t happen.
It’s like that AH HA moment of opening the freezer and finding your favorite pair of underwear!
“Ah Ha! Now I remember, I put you in there to help with the night sweats.”
I’m not the only one.
Okay, sure, whatever…I’ll just say it made sense at the time and I’m glad all I did was forget I put them there and not that I forgot I had them, or that I lost them, or shit….now I’m so confused.
What was I looking for?
Oh, wait…I found something. That’s it.
I found something I thought I’d lost because I forgot I saved it just in case I lost it because I had forgotten to save it.
Ahhhhh. There…that’s better.
So…what did the Old Lady That Lived in a Freezer find?
1200 photographs of her ‘once in a lifetime’ trip to London.
I KNOW right? What a thing to think was lost and gone forever!
I was crazy pissed off at my(self) laptop for dying with my magical mystery tour locked inside.
But…I must have had a non-senior moment the day I put them all on DVD, which I found in the last box of ‘stuff’ pulled out of the garage because hubby finally got my bookcases put together.
And imagine my ginormous, humongous, silly ass, what in the hell did you do this time comes spewing out of the hubby’s mouth as he comes running to see what’s happened cause the wife is going ape shit, reaction?
Seriously, I swear I’ll never get pissed off when I lose something again (if I remember to) because chances are I’ll remember I just forgot and I’ll find what I lost, or remember what I forgot to remember about where I put it or…crap!
This is too much work. I’ll just try to remember next time that I might have forgotten something.
Oh…and for the foreseeable future, I’m heading back to London. I’m sure I’ll find something to share.
