    C.F.S disease

    Well, it's been coming on for quite a while. I've always thought I was pretty good about putting things in a place, as chaotic as my 'system' might be, and then be able to find them again.

    But today my C.F.S. (Can't Find Stuff) really kicked in.

    Had to put a master valve on the irrigation system, did a little work on the boat's wiring system and running lights. Straightend up the garage a bit and then it dawned on me.

    I couldn't find my darn glasses. Since I'm near sighted, I find myself taking them off fairly regularly to look at things up close. Usually I'm smart enough to wear a t-shirt with a pocket, but not today. Spent the last hour looking for them and I'm out of luck....

    Oh well, I'm sure they'll turn up once I stop looking for them and just deal with the situation...

    Since I was 6 years old I've put my glasses for near sighted seeing on in the morning & taken them off at night.

    Ahh, I guess my problem is that my vision is changing. Always was able to see up close with them on. Not so much anymore. Still havn't found the darn things. Wearing the backups...

    I lose at least 1 pair of glasses a year for the same reason. I take them off to see something close and forget where I left them
