I'm afraid I'm losing my mind. The only thing I have going for me is that it (my mind) is enclosed in my brain. I have spent the last little bit searching for things which I have obviously misplaced. I say "obivious I" because my dear hubby is sleeping and Pilot is no longer living at home. I began looking for my pork which I bought the other day for a new recipe I'm making today. I went out to the garage where I have my second refrigerator. Not there. I came back to the kitchen and looked in that refrig. Not there. I begin thinking back...did I actually get it out of the bag? If not, I've thrown it away. Hubby asked me to look for two packs of gum we bought the other day. Can't find them anywhere. "Are they in your purse, by chance?" he asked me. I look, no, they aren't there. Well, my pork was out in the refrig in the garage. If it had been a snake it would have bit me. And, the gum? In my purse...yep. I went back a looked again and there they were. How I missed them I do not know. But, the real winner? I couldn't find my cordless phone. I looked everywhere that I thought it would be. Finally I resorted to pushing the "find me" button which led me to the kitchen. I looked and looked and couldn't find it. Later, I open the door to get an item out of the refrig and sitting there, nestled on the bottom shelf next to the tea, grape juice and left over casserole is the phone. When did I leave it there? And, more importantly, why?
This isn't the first time this type of stuff has happened. I've pulled out my dishrag from my purse when I was shopping...meant to pull out my wallet. I've put my Christmas gift tags and ribbon in the freezer, unbeknownst to me. I accused Pilot of having one of my reference books (we have a lot of the same ones)...well, I didn't really 'accuse', I just asked him if he had borrowed it. After a number of months...almost a year, I found it. I loaned it to a new Christian. But, in the meantime, I went and bought the book again. Not once, not twice but THREE times. I now have four copies of this book!!! Really, that isn't all that bad because it is out of print now so I'm glad I have all these copies! Yes, I did call up Pilot and, ahem, told him I had found the book etc...and, I did apologize for even thinking in the dark recessess of my mind that he might be associated in any way with the disappearance of the book. Let me just say, "I much prefer chocolate to humble pie." Of course, these were many years ago....I was hopeful they might have been just a dream but after the latest episodes, I don't really think they were dreams. *sigh*
