what's found is new again.....

Not always really, but for me this is oh so true. I open a box of items that have been packed away for awhile and not only am I amazed at just where and when did I acquire all this cool stuff, I also stand in awe of what good taste I have! (Not that anyone else would really agree but I always pick out the thing that I will just love...seriously, consult me if you're going to buy me anything and I guarantee I'll love what I pick out!)

This time the old isn't necessarily new, but I love it when I forget I own something and then stumble upon it. Case in point: I grabbed a cd binder on my way to work yesterday because I knew I was in for a long day on my feet in the warehouse modifying security switches for a rush order. No idea what was in the thing, in fact I had no idea when I last used that particular binder. Imagine my astonishment of getting to work, opening it up and finding my "Elizabethtown" vols 1 and 2 soundtracks. I LOVE those disks! I promptly put them in and, while they weren't the rock I'd planned to keep myself going, they were exactly what I needed because the soothingly mellow tunes kind of drop you into some sort of zen state where you can handle whatever comes your way. Ok, ok....maybe its not quite that melodramatic, but dang I missed those disks.......even though I didn't remember it until just yesterday!

I'm always amazed myself just how much stuff I always seem to "find" later and then I don't know how I had been able to live without it for the while it had "gone missing."

Such is life.
