I think that is my new self title. Do you ever feel good about yourself when you actually put things in a "place"? Everything has it's place, I believe the phrase goes. My method is put it down where you are, ignore it for a while, then when you can't take the clutter anymore organize it by putting it where it SHOULD be and then feel good about myself and wondering why I didn't just do that in the first place.
The only problem...most times I forget where I have put it when I was "organizing". I do this a lot I am realizing. I organize things into hiding places.
Just this afternoon I was getting ready for my sons Open House at school, and as I was putting on my makeup I couldn't find my eyebrow pencil sharpener. I distinctly remember finding it after the umpteenth time losing it and putting it in its "place" and feeling good about it. But that is the end of my recollection as to where I actually put it. Funny how I remember the feeling of accomplishment and being proud of myself that I was finally maturing and being responsible for my stuff, but I have no idea where I put the darn sharpener!
The same goes with my apple slicer, sure wish I could find that one.
Does anyone else experience this, or should I seek professional help? Maybe I'll just get one of those brain exercising games for the DS, or play Soduko. I seriously need to pump up my brain power before the kids are old enough to catch on.
