the nesting in me has moved on to a new project--the putting of all of our pictures into photo albums before Baby Girl arrives.
i dug out the pictures i had printed for this purpose, and others, and then thought "hey, i should get out the envelope that has our CDs in it and figure out which ones i need to print (again). then i thought "hey. don't i have a bunch of pictures already?" and then i thought that that envelope has my birth certificate and my social security card in it too. it's essentially the Envelope of Important Things.
i remember having it and using it and being so careful about it in the fall, when i was using it for all sorts of jobs.
can i find it now?
cue the intellectual part of me, which says that i would never have thrown it away and it's somewhere in this house, likely in some place that made sense at the time but SHOULDN'T BE BECAUSE WHY ISN'T IT WHERE I THOUGHT IT WAS?!?
but also cue the crazy hormonal part of me that is sure that someone has now stolen my identity and is wreaking havoc on me and my credit rating and trying to figure out how best to, you know, secure myself against it. and there's the stomping around trying to find it, praying all the while (though i do see how the stomping and the praying might NOT go together so well).
i guess i'm just putting this out there because i need it to come back to me and i need to know where it is and i know it's here and WHY IS IT HIDING?
but i did find our camera charger, which is a beautiful thing. that's $20 i don't have to spend.
so there's always a silver lining.
