2 blog posts ago I shared how I organized my life in boxes since I’m living #LifeOnTheLam. I’ll be honest, I’m sure it was laborious to read as it DEFINITELY was laborious to write — and actually DO.
Well, I’m here to say, sometimes going that extra mile really IS worth it.
Backstory: my crap-ass Chevy Volt got semi-broken into. How does a car get semi-broken into? Well, when unbeknownst to you the dealer, Community Chevrolet, turns off your automatic door locks during a “recall” fix and doesn’t tell you, so that when you walk away from the car (that has been automatically locking for a year and a half!!!) and it suddenly remains unlocked, the car can get “semi-broken into.”
The thief stole 3 thing that I have discovered thus far. An adorable handbag that I had been putting Bernie in when sneaking him into restaurants. Shhhh.
Bernie’s Children’s Hospital volunteering outfit and badge as well as a zillion reusable totes.
Who in the hell wants my reusable grocery totes???
As a result of the theft, I needed to sew Bernie a new CHLA neckerchief which I didn’t think was going to be a stree-free or fast experience since my sewing machine and thread were packed away deep in my storage unit.
Well, thanks to my handy-dandy Box Legend spreadsheet, all I had to do was query “sewing machine” and “thread” — and BOOM I had my box numbers! Then, all I had to do was locate the actual boxes in my dark storage unit which I was able to do with the flashlight that I leave in the unit!
It works people. It works.
Tweet me @TracyMetro something that was a pain in the arse to do, but actually works!
