I've been having Technical Difficulties lately with things around the house. Last week it was the printer and I just gave up on it and got a new one. I know my limits and if I can't fix it in 3 weeks, I move on to Plan "B"...replacement.
This week it's the garage door opener. We give it a real workout at our house, up and down several times a day. Someone is always going somewhere, the poor thing gets pushed and poked, hit and slapped more than Popeye and Brutus! This morning when I went to take the recycling out to the garage, it was blinking at me like the broken printer did last week. I'm thinking now that the printer maybe had a blinking virus and now the garage door opener had caught it.
So I get the owners manual out and start reading. This broken thing is getting to me! As I was searching I flipped through all the instruction books included when I came across something that I had lost several months ago. Misplaced is the right word.
The checkbook that went missing has been hiding inside the Liftmaster Owner's Manual all this time. The last time we had an "issue" with the garage door the checkbook must have been on the desk waiting for the chance to "jump in" the book and hide! Naughty little checkbook!
Then this morning when I was cleaning I found an earring that I had lost a month ago. They are a favorite pair that I wear a lot. It's on the counter, can you see it?
Every day I stand here and brush my teeth, put my makeup on and stare right at it but never saw it until today.
I'd written it off as lost, gone forever when I caught a glimpse of gold sticking out from under this little accent lamp.
This is the little bowl where I dump the jewelry I wear most often. Not too organized, but it kind of matches my life!
Tomorrow I'm going to clean out this mess I call my makeup drawer and I'm hoping to find the lost hedge clippers...
