Who needs to lock up their house before they go out of town for 5 days??
Where the TRUCK did I put my house keys???
Couldn't find them at 5:00 am - on my way out the door to the gym - so used my spares. No big deal ...
But now ... 4 hours later, I still can't find them!! I have a spare set of keys for the house - but it's dis-concerning to know I don't have a clue where my "normal keys" are ... Plus my office key is on that key chain :(
My car keys (different key-ring) were in my purse - right where I expected them, at 5:00 AM. I know the keys must be IN THE HOUSE, because I had to use my house keys to get INTO my house last night. Blurry eyed and not quite awake, I thought maybe they were still hanging in the front door (I've been known to lock up on the inside - totally NOT paying attention to them hanging on the outside). BUT NO KEYS IN THE DOOR.
They were not on my dinning room table - which I cleaned off last night, of all the mail, and newspapers, and boxes, and other accumulated debris that gathers there far too easily.
They were not on the kitchen counter - which is where I also frequently set them down, as I walk through the door on my way to pour myself a glass of wine.
Not on the end table by the door. Not on the couch. Not on my dresser in the bedroom - I wasn't wearing a jacket yesterday - so they are NOT in a pocket somewhere. I washed my blue jeans last night - so they are not in my pants pocket.
They are not on the filing cabinet where I moved stuff off my table to ... they are not on my desk - which I also dusted ....
hmmm - I hung some stuff up in the guest room ..... NOT THERE EITHER ...
As I folded all of my laundry and packed this morning I kept saying, "Don't worry, they'll turn up." As I took the recycling and garbage out I told myself, "Don't worry, they'll turn up." As I changed my thermostat program for the heater, and packed my makeup WITHOUT PUTTING IT ON .... I continued to say, "Don't worry, they'll turn up."
As I hauled my luggage and jacket to the car ... I told myself, "&^%##$^& idiot - go get the damn spare keys and get out of here - you're late to pick up the boss!"
I sure hope this isn't an indication of how this trip is going to go ... and if it is, I hope this is like the house problems - and I'm receiving all the crap karma know - so when I leave in 15 days!!!! :) for the UK - everything goes SMOOTHLY.
