The search for the curling iron
Over on facebook, a few days ago, I mentioned how I somehow lost my curling iron - the big 2" one - have no clue where it went. It's been mia for a few weeks now, maybe since Thanksgiving. . . But when my $40 flashlight, bought a few weeks ago, now joined the curling iron in a far-away place I decided it was time to search.
I've noticed that I'm not the only person who has a catchall room and that's where I really suspected them both of being. I'm horribly guilty of clearing off the kitchen counter/table and taking the whole pile into that room and plopping it on my desk. My desk is now cleaned off - neither one was there, but a couple of flashlights and a fiji bottle were.
Next I moved to my bedside table, it's a horrible catchall as well. Nope, not there, but I found more fiji and smart water bottles on the table and under the bed - guess my Diet Coke addiction has been replaced. A couple of scissors, more flashlights and a missing booklight (under the bed - that's where that went!)
Maybe the car? Curling iron I didn't expect to find there but maybe the flashlight? Nope, a different flashlight, scissors, receipt book, an eyeglass case with my old glasses in it, and the red booklight I lost there earlier this month under the backseat.
Sooooo, the curling iron is still lost who knows where. But I found the $40 flashlight under the foot of the bed, I bet the dogs put it there! And all these items can back where they're supposed to be. Any suggestions on where I should look for the missing curling iron?
