a word of advice, LOL
Every time I think I'm being so smart, I get walloped upside the head by Reality. So I thought I'd share some advice in case any of you have a problem. LOL.
Problem one...I'm old and forget things.
Problem two...Fibromyalgia causes short term memory loss.
I like excuse #2 better actually.
Last year when I packed away my too-much-Christmas stuff,
I made a list of what I stored where. Because the year before I forgot some stuff that was in under-the-bed bins!
If my Christmas decor could all be in ONE area, I wouldn't have a problem. But its not, and I do. A bonus of buying stuff on sale after the season, is I take pictures to show you guys, and that gives me a record of new purchases during the year. And I find room to put it in one of the Christmas closets... or my reg. closet, and we won't talk about that disaster right now. Tho I may have to get rid of my clothes.
But apparently my 'smartness' stopped at Christmas. I've been going nuts the past few days trying to find some of my Fall decor. Its stored in too many places, but I don't have one big place for it. Still I was sure I knew where it all was. Till I remembered my 3 newest pieces I got several months ago at Hobby Lobby when they put stuff out early for fools like me. I came home, and showed you, this
Then I "lost" it. I've looked high and low for it. Its not small enough to lose, darn it. In desperation I started looking on the pantry shelves where I keep Spring holiday decor. Don't ask why, but it was by the Easter stuff. Along with two acorn bowls I'd bought and totally forgotten all about.
My advice is to not stick stuff any place there's room,
and if you do, write down where you stick it.
Someone please remind me of this next year, when the sales
start!! In fact, remind me NOT to even buy MORE stuff!!
Oh wait, I forgot who I'm talking to here!! Enablers R Us.
