Proof I Was Not Born to Be Domestic
About two years ago I decided to tuck money away to buy myself a great watch. Took me about a year to find “THE one” and once I found it, savvy me shopped the web for the best price on it.
Best price found
I ordered it! An awesome watch ~~~~~>
Thursday night: I did a bunch of cooking. I put everything away, cleaned up, took out the garbage and brought it down to the street for pick up the next morning. Felt incredibly productive.
Friday morning: Dressed and ready for work and off I went. Checked the time to make sure I’d be on time for an appointment.
Oops, no watch.
No big deal, I turn around and go back home, because I will be lost all day without my watch. Pass the garbage truck, head down towards my house and pull up the driveway.
Go into the kitchen where I left my watch. No watch. Check the bathroom, maybe it’s there. No watch.
Oh shit. It hit me.
Yes, I threw the watch out. Stupid, dumbass me threw my watch out when I cleaned up my cooking mess. And I just drove by the large, nasty garbage truck that picked up my garbage 5 houses ago.
This is not the first time I have lost something due to cleaning. I lost a diamond wedding band that I had taken off while doing some house cleaning. I have lost numerous bracelets and earrings. All because of cleaning. This issue is how I justified hiring a cleaning person to come in every other week. (I can pretty much justify anything. Contact me if you should need justification for anything at all.)
Will the lost watch justify me hiring a cook?
I can’t begin to tell you how stupid and careless I feel. And add to that, the manufacturer (Michele Watches) has discontinued the style.
I am so incredibly mad at myself.
