  • Mood:
So, in an attempt to keep my mind off my neck pain today, I've been doing housework. Lots of housework. Cleaned, hoovered, and dusted the entire downstairs, cleaned out my bathroom and dressing area, and reorganized (or organized, we probably haven't been in this house long enough to merit a re-) my and Craig's closet. One of the jobs in doing the closet meant tackling my jewelry box. A lot of my stuff got tangled up into knots during the move, and I've been meaning to sit down and untangle it all, as well as clear out all the stuff I haven't worn in the last five years (or ever, as is the case for a couple pieces).

I opened the bottom drawer which holds stuff like memorabilia and tucked in the back of the drawer I find a box. Inside the box is a pair of onyx cufflinks and matching tie pin that I bought for Craig in England.

My problem?

I can't remember ever giving them to him. Did I buy it as a gift and forget to give it? Did I give it and then it got tucked back into my jewelry box for safe keeping during one of the moves? How do I find out without looking incredibly stupid to Craig?

I rarely open that bottom drawer, so it's entirely feasible that it's been there since our wedding. For some reason, I want to say we got them for Craig instead of a ring when picked out my wedding ring (he wanted to use the ring I'd bought for him for Valentine's Day the year previous). I just don't know for sure.


I'm getting so old. My memory is completely shot.
