And I couldn't find it! LOL...do you have those moments where you are looking for something and it's right in front of your face and you can't see it? I bought a Pledge duster and have been using it for quite sometime. I keep it in a drawer and when I went to use it I couldn't find the handle. I tore through the drawer moving everything around and started to search all over when I picked it up again and discovered..for the first time since I bought it that the handle folds over!! Dah! Does this happen to you too sometimes?

the handle could have bitten you and you wouldn't know it! LOL it happens to me a lot. especially before. everybody in the house would tell me, "don't use your mouth to look for it, use your eyes!" because i always go "have you seen my stuff? where is my stuff? where is it? i can't find it!" endlessly. LOL and then they would add, "there it is! ready to bite you any moment!". ^__^;; and i would feel so embarrassed! .

I do this all the time and it can be frustrating. I find my life easier to manage if I don't move anything around or stick things in drawers. I can spend a long time looking for something I've moved to another drawer. Or think I have moved something and instead it's right there in front of me. I'd rather think at times I am scatterbrained than to think this is the onset of old age.

My brain is giving up on me it is not doing his job any more. It happens at least 1 time a week when I look for something and then I find it where I first looked. My son goes to 4 year old kindy now and because he always comes with me shoping now that I go on my own or with husband I have panic attacks every time. I think oh no I lost my son and then it comes to me that he is at school.

I think we have all experienced this a time or two in our lives. *laughing* Normally for me however, when I can't find something, I automatically go to the kids and ask them. Sure enough they took it or moved it. If not, they know exactly where it is.

Too bad the kids don't live here any more! That used to happen to me too! And they do know where it's at! LOL
