Rearranging my closet........and

I started going through my closet this morning; I was taking out the summer things and empty hangers, that somehow find themselves between the hanging things, and rearranging everything.

I took everything out and piled on my bed the stuff to fold up or put in a different place. I changed  some things to different kinds of hangers.

When I took this out of my closet it felt heavy. Guess what!

Yes it was my phone. I knew I would find it! Jack just laughed at me and told me I was getting expensive in my old  age. We probably would have waited to get a new phone if  I had been happy with the one I had. There were issues with a few things that were always cumbersome and I complained about it a lot. We took a little more time to do some research before we shopped this time. One thing I need is one that has a high rating for hearing  aids. We also do not have a contract but buy minutes so we don't always have a lot of choices.  

So here we are. My new phone is on the right. Now I have a camera and a touch screen and everything seems easy to use, so far no issues.
In the center is the phone I just found again and on the left is the phone I lost last January and found the very minute Jack got off the phone after transferring my number and my minutes.

 I was absolutely sure I had check every piece of clothing that had a pocket, obviously I did not. I think that I found my phone in the same pocket last time and I must have gone through everything at least 4 or 5 times. I even checked things in the laundry basket. In my defense I must say that I have never put my phone in the washer. I guess I need a system to keep track of things. Maybe I should check my phone, my keys, my hearing aids, etc. every night before I go to bed; I might remember if it wasn't 3 days later. Maybe I should pay attention to what I am doing instead of thinking of the next three things I want to do.
I don't think I am going to change my ways at this stage of my life;
 maybe I should just never turn off my phone.

I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who is constantly losing things. You are building quite a stash of lost and found!
