There are times when I am a dork.

So my project for the day seems to be Organizing the Bedroom (tm). Call it spring cleaning if you like.

As I'm working my way around the room, I get to a large plastic bin labeled "winter clothes". I open it, and it is, in fact, filled with winter clothes. Which I packed into said bin when I moved to Los Angeles - THREE YEARS AGO.

Gee, these things would have been nice throughout this past winter when I was grumbling about not having enough warm clothes, but not wanting to spend the money or time to find more.

There's a whole passel of really nice velvet and silk shirts in there, and two winter coats! One leather! (Bringing my total of leather coats up to - um - six, I think. Yes, I like leather. Shush.) I'd forgotten all about these things!

I must admit one advantage of being a forgetful pack rat is that when I do re-discover things that have been lost for years - it becomes my unbirthday! With presents that I don't have to feel guilty about not writing thank-you notes for!

Mom mentioned your lack of thank-you notes the other day. I trust you don't feel guilty about that!

Sometimes when I re-discover things that have been lost for years - it also becomes your unbirthday! So many things that I got for you on impulse and then forgot about. Sigh.

After that letter I sent her two years ago (which basically boiled down to "I appreciate your gifts, but I am scatterbrained and will often forget thank-you notes - if this bothers you, don't send me any more gifts!") I've given up feeling guilty about it. She'll do what she does, I'll do what I do. So be it.

though I'm mildly curious what she's wanting a thank-you for now. She hasn't sent me anything since Christmas, and I actually thanked her on the phone for that one - the same conversation where she didn't seem to care that I was pregnant with her first great-grandchild. *sigh*
