“The bun was in the microwave, despite the fact that I didn’t use it that night.” I LOVE IT!! Thanks for letting us know where it ended up.
My 2 cents is to just try to accept the fact that this is your (new) normal, just like someone who is colorblind or left-handed in a right-handed world (no offense to lefties!) Nothing you can do about it but find strategies that help you adapt. This will continue to happen and the more you accept it and even anticipate it, the less anxiety you’ll suffer. Oh, and you obviously have the same house gremlins that steal and relocate things that we all have. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it…
LynSuzanne, this is an excellent idea! I have running lists of things to do and eventually they get done, but what a sense of accomplishment when I can cross it off the list, so I think this is a good idea for lost things. I misplace things every day, and can spend days hunting, can’t give up. (Still searching for gloves lost several months ago.) I know it’s around somewhere and when it’s found I can often remember what I was doing at the time of “misplacement.” If I have something in my hand, I try to be extremely mindful of it, often telling myself to put it where I was taking it before becoming distracted and setting it down to do something else. I’m still looking for things lost a while ago, so I will start this list, which also helps keep the pressure off of having to remember to look for something lost. Yes, it’s all annoying as hell at the least the debilitating at the worst, but thank goodness for all of you who tell the same tales so we all feel like we’re not weird/stupid/alone.
