Last week went pretty well, in terms of finding important lost things. As upsetting as it is to literally lose thousands of dollars (as in, not to the stock market or the slumping of the economy, but to MISPLACE), it is a big relief to then FIND those thousands of dollars. Welcome back safety net! Maybe next time we won't keep you in a drawer! We've been considering using our safety net to pay off some of our credit card debt. It felt bad to finally realize we were going to have to give up the last source of emergency money we had, but have you SEEN the interest rate on our credit cards??? So we decided we needed to do it. That was when we realized that our emergency fund was missing.
Still we found it, and between that money, our tax refund, and my recent confiscation of Chris's credit cards, I think we should have the situation under control before the new baby gets here.
I also found something important that I had lost in the debris of my office. It is a not an interesting story, but, briefly summarized, it goes like this:
Yay, important thing! I'm so glad to have you! I will put you here, in the place that important things go!
Important thing? I need you now! I'm ready to do the work you are necessary for! Hello? Important thing?
Has anyone seen important thing?
File drawer, did I file important thing in it's appropriate place? No? Well, that's a surprise.
I wonder how I can hide the fact that I lost this important thing?
Much searching . . . much despair . . .
AH! Important thing! Look at you! You were buried so deeply in a pile I didn't see you! It's so good to have you back!
So last week was a good week for finding things.
