Tendency to misplace items and mistake time

pexels-photo-753290via Daily Prompt: Tend

I tend to do a lot of things that would be better avoided. One of them is misplacing everyday things. However, the good news is that they are not lost permanently, just misplaced temporarily. Chris kindly comments, out of exasperation, that I would save time if things had a designated spot and if I put them back in its place after use.

I wholeheartedly agree that that’s a great solution but executing that on a consistent basis is another story. One positive light is that during my searches I randomly find things that I misplaced in the past. It’s like a treasure hunt that my kids love to do too. Don’t get me started about finding toys under the couch and shifting all the furniture around together – makes for an achy body but dust-free floors.

Another thing I tend to do is show up too early or miss an event altogether because of some misunderstanding with time. An example of the latter was evident yesterday when we showed up to Ellis’ first dance class one and a half hours early. She frowned at me saying, “Mommy! Not again!”

I tend to do a lot of things, like misplace items or mistake time for too soon or too late. It makes me me, slightly flawed and kooky. I’m okay with not having it all perfectly together but those I’m living with may disagree.

Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!

      1. It was a pleasure to nominate you. It’s how youwrite about the everyday aspects of life that makes your writing interesting to read.


  2. This post makes me smile. When my kids were little I had many days like that. I wish I could tell you it gets better when they’ve grown, but I can’t – treasure every misplaced, disorganized, crazy enough to laugh out loud moment. They grow up fast, and your husband will eventually start misplacing stuff too. 🙂


    1. Every stage of parenting brings new challenges and surprises. As much as I complain, I do love this season. Their sweetness, affection, and wonder amazes me and teaches me to slow down. Your last sentence made me laugh out loud. My husband laughed too and agreed that may be the case!
