Did you take my graduation cards?

We have graduation parties to attend this weekend. I know there are at least two graduation cards in the house. Cards are stored in one of two boxes specifically designed to hold cards, arranged by category. I am highly organized. Stop snickering. I can hear you.

The cards aren't under "Congratulations" in the main box. The second box holds cards that are over-sized or have so many gee-gaws on them, extra postage and hand canceling is necessary. I never buy or make that kind anymore. Regular postage is bad enough. This card won't be mailed though, it will be hand delivered. It isn't in the odd box.
The cards also aren't in the stack of photos that I need to either file, frame or otherwise decide what to do with. I'm not supposed to end a sentence with "with", am I? Tough. I said I was organized, not grammatically correct.
The cards aren't among the recipes that I've printed and have yet to file in the binders that I have for main dishes; sides, salads and soups; and desserts. Why is the dessert binder the largest one? I said I was organized, not thin. I had decided I was printing too many recipes so I stopped printing most with the intention of actually making the recipes (test driving them) before filing them. Excuse me a minute..."Bill, stop laughing right this minute! You're going to hurt yourself if you laugh your butt right off that chair!"    Dang, how can that man hear what I am typing?
In case you are wondering, they aren't in the stack of Michaels, Joann's or Archiver's coupons either. Not only am I organized, I am thrifty.   Ok, that does it! Bill, go play in the garage until I am done composing this!
They aren't under the directions for a new shawlette that I downloaded yesterday called Cameo. This is Rudee's fault. If it looks this good on her Stoney, I should be able to wear it with panache. Or while wearing pancakes. I said I was organized, not that I always use the right word.
While I search for the elusive cards, should I put the recipes in the binders without trying them? Sort the coupons and throw out the 98% that I know I won't use (or are past their expiration dates)? Or should I straighten up the stack of the photos? Notice I said straighten them, not file or frame them? Above and beyond organized, I am honest.
I think I will go buy two new graduation cards. And maybe stop at Joann's since it close to the card shop. And after that go out for pancakes for lunch. Look for me in the black t-shirt. I am organized  thrifty thin determined to have a good day.  I hope you have a good one too!

"Snap his neck like a kit kat bar" Hmmmmm, now where have I heard that before. Poor Bill.

I laughed at the last T shirt. I don't print recipes anymore. I keep a 3 subject notebook next to me and hand copy them into it. [Don't ask - I am old school. Or just freaking old - who knows?] But you could keep one by your printer, print it out and staple it in. Huh? Yeah?

I love recipes, but I only copy them off the net if I am going to make them. And then I do. But I have too much time on my hands as it is. you need a personal organizer? I work for pie. I'll even make it. giggle

They are in the stack of bills to be paid! Or still in car.

I can't wait to see your Cameo! Mine is enormous, so mind your yarn selection. I use Woobu, which I think is sport weight. It would certainly be a large enough shawl knit in fingering weight yarn.

And, no, I did not take your cards.

Well look at it this way, if you find them and someone you know graduates next year, you can use them then. :)
