I used to be pretty good at keeping track of stuff. I rarely lost anything, and when I did I usually at least had an idea where it might be. What I’m finding out now that I’m married and have a child is that I’m pretty good at keeping track of MY stuff. Helping Brian find things he’s misplaced is hit or miss. Either I can tell him where it is (or probably is) or I have no idea. This isn’t so bad, since Brian is an adult after all, and can look for his own stuff. The problem is with Kalena’s stuff. I have lost a couple things of hers and I don’t even know where to start looking. What gets me though is that I can clearly remember the last time I had them–and now they’re just gone. It’s like they just disappeared into thin air.
My mom tells me that the best way to find something you’ve lost is to start cleaning. (She’s right, I’ve found plenty of stuff this way.) Unfortunately, I’m a little bit (okay, more than a little bit) of a procrastinator so I’m always looking for stuff right when I need it. I guess I just need to procrastinate less and clean more. That doesn’t sound like a whole lot of fun though. Maybe I’ll just make BRIAN clean more. That should work right?
