Today I have been busy (not that I'm not busy other days, but I was more productive than usual). I tidied up the kitchen and the family rooms and I did most of the ironing.
Then I headed into the more personal chores: I cleaned my room, cooked dinner for myself and the dogs, and then I had time to look for something I'd lost.
I'm going to the US in less than a month and I was hoping to start packing (which I am about to do), but I knew I had extra passport photos and hadn't been able to locate them in the last few days.
I texted my mum about where it might be and she suggested a box of my stuff in the closet (I have moved 3 times in the past 2 years, and the parents spread out their stuff when I left, so when I moved back home there wasn't enough space for my things, hence half my stuff is still in boxes). I FINALLY had time to look in there - I was doubtful it would be in there and it wasn't - the box was packed before I even had the photos - but then, on a brainwave, I looked in another box, under mybed - the one with my computer and Wii games in there. Sure enough, there it was. So I can pack now.
I went under the bed to get my suitcase (which is not out yet), but I unearthed a box of my books I didn't know was there!! I love my books and I knew enough that there were books that hadn't been accounted for, but I had no idea there was another box of books with such easy access.
I love it when that happens - it's like getting a new box of books!!
