    Unhappy Does it drive you crazy?

    My Christmas decorations for our bay window are hiding from me. It's driving me nuts! I've opened container after container. I know they're in our house, but I can't find them. Does anyone else have this problem? I hope I don't find them the day after Christmas.

    Hello again Marshmallow,

    It happens all the time for me. I have a photographic memory, meaning I basically take "photos" in my head everywhere I look. It really helps me to remember where I put things, or where I last saw things. I am not good at putting things back where they belong... Most of the time it works very well, but there are those times where I know I put something "there" and when I come back it is no longer there. (I know sometimes that someone else moved it so I have to enter that into the equation)

    It happens to the best of us, I hope you find your decorations!

    When that happens to me and it does every year. The stuff is usually under some thing else in the bin that I didn't see or in the bottom of the bin where I already took over things from. I haven't finished yet because I am tired of looking in all those bins and having to stack them up again so I can park the car in the garage. I only take two or three in the house at a time but something I need is always still in the garage.

    Mine are usually in the basement, but I've resorted to looking in closets and under beds. I've run across Christmas items I don't want anymore and have been taking them to Goodwill.

    I have somehow misplaced my two glass nativity scenes and can't find them anywhere. I know they are in a small brown box but I am not sure where to start the search again. so yes it drives me crazy! It has to be here I have seen them since we moved in three years ago! presents
    Wishing you many hot cocoa mornings and firesky nights throughout the new year!

    been there - done that. Almost every year there is something I can't find. One year it was all my 'little people' for the Christmas villages. My villages don't come to life until my people are all in place and I was going NUTS - 3 days before Christmas I finaly found them but the hours wasted looking for them were many. Now they ALWAYS go into a CLEAR tub and under the bed - they don't go out into the garage anymore. All the things that I can't do w/o for decorating now go into clear tubs - I should own stock in Sterlite for as many tubs as I have. For about 6 years now I will buy 4 or 5 after Christmas (they are up to $4.97 now) but have made my searching for stuff alot easier plus they stack real nice ......

    I LOVE the clear tubs! But if they have to be wrapped in paper to avoid breakage, I put a piece of paper in there against the side telling me what's hiding in the paper. I have looked everywhere and still can't find the stuff for the bay window. I just don't get it.

    You didn't mistakenly take it to Goodwill, did you?

    I hope not!

    When you find it, please let us know.
