Currently....my cell phone is lost.

Currently, I am absolutely freaking out.

I can't find my cell phone.

This is not a common problem. I usually have a very good idea of where my phone is. Unfortunately, this is not a usual month. My brain is getting less and less able to understand the world around it. For instance, the other morning, I walked out of the house and towards the car. I clicked the little "unlock" button. And then I clicked it again. I stood next to the car and stared at the lock through the window.

It didn't move. 

I clicked again.

It didn't move.

I looked at the clicker. I clicked it again.

I looked at the car. And realized that it didn't belong to me. 
It was my boyfriend's car. It is a different size, shape, and color than my car. And it was parked in a different place. And it took me several minutes to notice.
..............................................................................................................................................................
Today has not been better. As I drove up to the house, I noticed that my trash can was still down on the street from yesterday when the trash collectors picked it up. So I parked, walked down to the can, and dragged it up the driveway. As I was setting up the can, I dropped my phone onto the driveway. Then I picked it up and set it on top of the can. I went back to the car, grabbed my bag and purse, and then picked up my phone from the lid of the can. 

I unlocked the front door and came inside. I changed out of my skirt into some shorts and went to get my phone to tell my hunnybun I was home.

And it was gone.

It disappeared. It disintegrated. It evaporated. It spontaneously combusted. It is gone.

And I'm freaking out. I already spent an hour searching. Car, driveway, trash can, bedroom, trash can, driveway, car. Nope. I sent my hunny two emails, one facebook post, and four instant messages to call it. Nope. These are my what-ifs.
-What if I accidentally dropped it into the sink and it's been under water for three hours?
- What if I dropped it on my driveway (again) and a kid picked it up?
- What if I left it in a pocket and I'll forget about it and wash it in the washer?
- What if I dropped it somewhere and I'll run it over or step on it?
- What if it dies before I find it and I never find it again?

That's a lot of worries.

So currently, I'm stressed.
I'm also other things. Check them out in my Currently from Farley!
*UPDATE: Just found it. My hunny got home and made me retrace my steps. And I found it.....
in the recycle bin. Apparently, I tossed a soda can in there after I threw trash in the trash can. And I tossed my phone in there.
How embarrassing. And scary, too.

  6. I lose EVERYTHING on a regular basis. I just put things down and don't pay any attention to what I'm doing. Glad you found your phone though!

  8. Love your what-ifs!!!!! So glad you found it!!! I have lost mine before...except that I was talking on it. I said (on my cell) to my twin, "I can't find my cell phone!" as I frantically searched for it. She was the voice of reason.
