I’ve done it again. I’ve managed to lose something important. I don’t know how I can misplace every receipt that I MUST keep, but I have a whole purse filled with receipts from buying Mountain Dews at the 7-11. As of last month I am the owner of a 24×30 print of an ugly tree that I thought I might want for the frame. The frame turned out to be too small. Of course I bought it at a store where there are no returns or exchanges without the receipt.
Today I have lost a DVD from the library.
It was Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House with Myrna Loy and Cary Grant. I’m so in the mood to watch it tonight. The last place I saw it was in my car. I’m quite sure that every time I open the door that things fly out, never to be seen again. Sadly the Garfield DVD that we also checked out? I found that. The Best of the Wiggles (an oxymoron if I’ve ever heard one)? Found that too. But my Cary Grant DVD seems to have vanished.
How do organized people do it? How do they keep track of things? Am I destined to be a scatterbrain my whole life?
