Sorry I did not report back sooner, but my plan seems to have worked. I woke up the next morning after a fitful night of sleep with no clue as to where the missing gift could be. But...in a moment of lucidity, I did think of one more hiding place to check....
Lo and behold, the package was there! I guess you could say that I started my Christmas shopping early. :-)
Lest you think my marbles are all found...
The same day I found the gift, more marbles fell out. :-)
Now, in my defense, I have been spending ALL DAY Monday/Wednesday/Friday driving TE to and from his classes at various nearby universities. I literally alternate between 20 minute trips and 30-40 minutes at home - ALL DAY LONG. So, this week, I arranged for a friend of his, who has a class at the same time, to give TE a ride to the other university after the first hour class. That freed up so much time that I now have more than 2 hours at home all in a row. YEAH ME! I drop TE off after breakfast and pick him up right before lunch.
So, mid-morning, I look up at the clock, and exclaim, "Oh! I gotta go pick up TE!"
I jump in the van and high-tail it on over to the campus. I'm sitting in the lot and I see one of TE's friends. I usually see this guy walking out of class the same time as TE. But this time...he's walking into the building. Hmmm....that's strange... That's when I looked down at the clock and realized I was a WHOLE HOUR EARLY to pick up TE!
If I didn't laugh at myself, I'd cry.
How about you? Are you losing your marbles. Tell me about it. We can all laugh together.
PS. This weekend, I'll be working on a scheduling system.
Blessings to you,
I Can't Afford That!
