an experiment

Everything I own has grown legs. It started just after the Olympics with the sudden disappearance of the lens cap for my camera.

It’s not so much that everything is a mess. Everything’s always a mess around me. Clutter always manages to find places to roost in the corners while I go on with my life, oblivious to it all. I have a pretty high tolerance for clutter which makes it hard for me to even recognize that it’s there.

I don’t notice or do anything about it until I lose something. In this case, the companion to the knitting needle you see in the picture above. Shortly after I took that picture it completely disappeared.

Today it is the usb cord for my camera. The last time I saw it was 2:00 today. Now it seems it has vanished. It can’t have gone far but it’s nowhere to be found.

I don’t think it’s that my room is a mess. I can always find things in the clutter. I think that it has more to do with the fact that the Olympics disrupted my schedule for two weeks. Things I would have used regularly sat wherever they are hiding and I’ve forgotten where they are.

I keep saying this but tomorrow I’m going to clean my room. I’m getting tired of not being able to find things.

    To be fair, the time you spent posting this could have been used to CLEAN YOUR ROOM! :p
    I can’t complain though. My husband is always bugging me for not putting things back where they belong. I can’t remember the last time I saw his flash drive, but he hasn’t seemed to notice it’s missing yet.

    Well, that’s true. I could clean my room but where’s the fun in that? :P
