The other day as I walked into the kitchen from the garage I accidentally bumped against the ceramic keyholder that is on the wall. It fell to the floor and luckily didn’t break, but the little “hangie-up” thingie on the back of it came apart from the keyholder. It simply requires some sturdy glue and back up on the wall it can go and I will have a place to park my keys once again.
The problem is I can’t find the tube of Krazy Glue. I just had it a few days ago — it has a red cap on it, and it is in its plastic packaging and I remember using it to glue together the edges of my library table in my crap craft study home office. And then I think I might have given it to Devoted Spouse because he had something he had to glue.
From there the trail goes cold. Very cold. So cold it is like frozen tundra. Both Devoted Spouse and I have searched this house from top to bottom – every drawer and cubbyhole even in the garage and the basement has been thoroughly searched. No Krazy Glue. I have looked in the most extraordinary places…mainly because I have this strange habit of saying to myself….”I’ll just put this HERE because then I’ll know where to find it.” And, of course, that particular item never reappears in my life.
It’s very frustrating. For example, the other day we were looking for the cord to the GPS for the car as we were going to be driving out in the country and thought having the GPS handy was a good idea. I found the GPS in my crap craft, etc room. But the cord was nowhere to be found. Much like the hunt for the Krazy Glue, we looked everywhere. Finally, Devoted Spouse opened a kitchen cupboard I rarely use and there inside a Longaberger cracker basket was the GPS cord. Why was it there? Beats the everlovin’ crap outta me. I must have thought at one time that was the ideal spot to keep it and I would always remember that it was there. Obvious neural misfire.
And, yes, we searched that cupboard for the Krazy Glue and it’s not there.
I need my keyholder back where it belongs because my keys are ending up in various places and I’m now losing them, too. Where oh where is the Krazy Glue? This is making me krazy…sigh.
