Lost and Found!

You know the frustration of losing something important? No matter how hard you look for the missing item, it continues evading your careful eye. You trash the room, searching for the wretched thing and you still can't find it! And just when you're about to scream surrender, the missing item mysteriously appears right before your eyes; at the very same spot you've checked over and over again! Doesn't that irritate you? This always happens to me and yesterday was no exception!marah

I was up all night doing some work and dropping EC. It was already light outside when I suddenly remembered the letter I received from my bank, reminding me that my IKEA points will expire and to please redeem my cash vouchers soon. Refusing to procrastinate like last year, I plan to redeem my voucher this very weekend but first I needed that letter for verification purposes. I am in the market for new Steelcase Office Furniture and accessories so shopping was uppermost on my mind. The cash vouchers would definitely come in handy and I was already picturing the storage boxes and filing cabinet I needed for my home office.

I turned my home office upside down searching for this letter. I remembered reading it right here at my work station. Yes my desk was already cluttered with many other items, but I specifically recalled putting the letter together with a bunch of old mail. I then placed the whole thing between my printer and stationery organizer, on the right side of my L-shape desk. I rummaged through that stack more than three times but did not find the missing letter. I went through all the envelopes lying around outside and on B's desk to no avail. The missing letter remained a mystery and I started wondering if I had accidentally thrown it out with my junk mail! garupale

Lack of sleep was beginning to get to me; exasperation mounting by the minute. By that time, my whole office was in chaos! Papers were strewn across my day bed, boxes were opened all over the floor and my book case was messed up. I slumped in my chair and reluctantly went through the stack of mail again, where I was certain I had placed the missing letter and what do you know? There it was, right under my nose! tension

I was so angry to see the missing mail appearing from nowhere despite my going through the stack many times earlier but I was more relieved than anything else. I finally found what I was looking for so my exasperation immediately dissolved since problem solved! I still have to clean up the mess in my office, which I brought upon myself. But right now, I just want to chill out with a nice icy cold black coffee and browse through my IKEA catalogue. And to make up for all the stress I went through looking for that missing mail, I am so going to shop till I drop this weekend! gelakguling

Yeeha, enjoy ur movies then Debbs! It’s a working weekend for B though, so maybe next weekend pulak will be our movie turn! :)

Mariuca,  April 11, 2009 10:19 AM

Always yg hilang tu are important items Debbs and then usually when we are pressed for time, that’s when the thing decides to disappear, wasting our time looking for it! LOL!

Phatelara,  April 11, 2009 11:27 AM

Thanks Marzie! Hopefully it won't rain tomorrow.

Phatelara,  April 11, 2009 11:31 AM

Yup, mcm ada kaki lol! Yg paling menggeramkan is the fact that we're always so careful tp tetap ada benda yg hilang lol!

Mariuca,  April 11, 2009 11:33 AM

Kalau rain mmg malas nak keluar, for me at least. Hope u get good seats! :)

Mariuca,  April 11, 2009 11:36 AM

I guess no matter how careful we are, kalau nak hilang tu hilang jugak! Our mind playing tricks on us or what? Lolz…

Phatelara,  April 11, 2009 11:53 AM

Hehe could be la Marzie! Yg penat tu want to susun balik all the things yg bersepah while looking for that one things! Hehehe...

Mariuca,  April 11, 2009 11:59 AM

Phatelara,  April 11, 2009 12:51 PM

I'm not hungry yet, but C's back and preparing ingredients for vege soup lol! Munching my Reese's Pieces ni and forgot to offer C some lol!!!

Nick Phillips,  April 12, 2009 10:19 AM

That happens to me all the time ... hehehe ... Maybe some sneaky little goblin goes around hiding it just to irritate us ... I'll get Spiffy to blast the bum ... hehehe

Mariuca,  April 14, 2009 4:50 PM

Ha ha ah ha!!! I know Nick, it’s gotta be some cheeky goblin hiding my stuff, cause I checked many times but it wasn’t there and it’s only when I’m just abt to give up will the missing thing appear out of the blue! Grrrrrr! :)

Mariuca,  April 14, 2009 5:02 PM

He he kesian C tak dioffer reese’s lol! Nak sikit!!

Mariuca,  April 14, 2009 5:09 PM

Phatelara,  April 14, 2009 5:20 PM

C doesn't really like peanut butter in chocs, that's why! :):) C loves Mars bars. Forgot to tell him about the deep fried Mars bars lol!! Oh ya, ada tu a photo of Reese's Pieces on my photo blog, Marzie. :):):)

Mariuca,  April 14, 2009 5:24 PM

Eh!!! Mars Bar is my fave la!!!! Notice takde nuts like Snickers, so of coz it’s mah fave and then got caramel lagi, another fave of mine muahahhahahah! Ada gambar Reese’s? Woo hoo, kasi link Debbs! :)

Phatelara,  April 14, 2009 5:35 PM

Have you tried Mars ice cream, Marzie? Sedap gils! I had it a few years back and it was about RM15 per small tub. Sedap sangat sampai juling I eat lol!!! Here's the Reese's Pieces link:

Mariuca,  April 14, 2009 5:38 PM

Of coz I’ve tried MB ice cream Debbs but oh so expense kan? :( Will have some Resse’s now, coming! :)

Phatelara,  April 14, 2009 5:51 PM

Oh kalau lepas geram once in a while, MB ice cream is so good, right? :):):)

Mariuca,  April 14, 2009 5:54 PM

MB ice cream is da best la aiyooooooo how not to love! Nanti la ada PB lagi, for sure I nak beli MB ice cream and forget abt my so called freaking BD! ;)

Phatelara,  April 14, 2009 6:02 PM

Have you ever tried ais krim goreng, GP?

Mariuca,  April 14, 2009 6:08 PM

Of coz I’ve tried ice cream goring Debbs ROTFLMAO!!! Yeah, how they fry eh and the ice cream tak melt?? :)

Phatelara,  April 14, 2009 6:18 PM

Oh guess what, I've never tried ais krim goreng. I think the oil must be very very hot so that when they goreng, no need to goreng for a long time. :):) That's why the ice cream tak sempat melt. ;)

Mariuca,  April 15, 2009 4:07 AM

Oh u must try ais krim goring Debbs, so interesting la!

Phatelara,  April 15, 2009 3:20 PM

Itu la kan? Where to have ya? i forgot kat mana ada ais krim goreng...hehe

Mariuca,  April 15, 2009 9:39 PM

Debbs, I makan the ais krim goring kat rest mamak je, near my house!

Phatelara,  April 15, 2009 9:52 PM

Oh I must try the ais krim goreng then. Maybe this weekend. :)

Mariuca,  April 15, 2009 10:01 PM

Ok, try la at least once cause it’s really very interesting! Ais krim goring it seems!

Phatelara,  April 16, 2009 2:33 AM

Marzie, why la your ais krim goreng becomes goring? Autospell ye? Lol!!
