Thursday Thirteen #16: Thirteen things I still can't find post-move

Thirteen Things I still can't find post-move

1. Shoes other than my old, holey tennis shoes. I think I'm going to break down and buy new ones tomorrow.
2. A bra other than the one I'm wearing. I may break down and buy more of those too.
3. The bedroom TV. Really. We lost a TV.
4. My favorite tea cup.
5. The books for a class I'm teaching.
6. Part of my daughter's drawer.
7. The school calendar.
8. The Dog's second favorite toy (we just found his favorite).
9. A box of beach towels.
10. My bathing suit.
11. Hair things.
12. Our bike helmets.
13. My mind!!!!

A tv!!! I can't imagine losing a tv!

I hope you find your missing things (including your mind... they're kinda necessary these days) ;o)

Happy TT!

Ugh! I hate moving for the same reason..I can never find what I'm looking for! Good luck. Happy Friday!

We moved into this place 4 years ago, and I'm STILL looking for several things.

Hope things start turning up for you soon.

Like Marina, we've been in our new house for a year and a half and I still have stuff I can't find. If it weren't writing-related stuff I wouldn't mind nearly as much. But I need those notes!

We've lost some pretty strange things during moves but never anything like a TV. At least not yet.

When I was in the fourth grade, my family moved. At that time my older sister had these really *groovy* blue clogs, one of which got lost in the move. We looked *everywhere* for it but it never turned up. My sister accused me of throwing it away. Thirty-two years later, my parents moved again (they don’t move much) and guess what they found? The blue clog. Finally, I was exonerated.

The moral of the story is, go buy the stuff you lost, it may be a while before you find them and when you do, you may not need or want them any more. My condolences.

Sorry for the delay in responding... we went out of town for a fun-filled family weekend.

Crystal, I'd hoped to stop by and say hi, but I can't get the link to work.

I'm happy to report that almost all of the lost items have been found.

Although if someone sees my mind, please let me know.
