I didn't really lose it. Yes, it is not anywhere that I can find it, but I know that it is somewhere in my house, therefore not technically lost. I know it will eventually turn up, the question is when? We recently found two missing library books. One had been lost long enough that I had actually paid the library to replace it. The other had been missing long enough that Emme had to miss out on checking out a book at school for 3 consecutive weeks. So, things don't look so good for the rescue timeline for my watch... it has only been missing since Saturday afternoon... it has at least 3 more weeks before hopes of being discovered .
I didn't realize how addicted I am to timing my runs until I lost the ability to do so. Yesterday morning, I took Dan's ipod but got really frustrated with it because it was too touchy and I kept stopping the time when I was trying to check it. Today, I ran with the stroller and Leona. When I run with a stroller, instead of wearing my watch, I put it on the handle bar where I can see it and easily stop it while waiting at intersections. Well, on today's run, there were several times that I went to stop the timer only to find it not there. It was what I would imagine it would be to have an itch on a "phantom limb". I feel like I'm missing an appendage! Pretty pathetic, I know.
I'm trying to cope without my watch and to be completely honest I really haven't looked too hard for it, so I shouldn't be whining so much. Until I find it though, I'll have to make do. Tomorrow I think I'll give my new kitchen timer (thanks mom) a run through... get it, "run" through... ha ha ha I'm so funny.
