To balance the common (ie my family's) wisdom that one should never tidy because then you'll never find anything again--

Tail of Hurricane Patty is forecast to bring heavy rain and damaging winds tonight and tomorrow. Have been impossibly light-headed and fuzzy-minded all day, I hope because of same. Decided to assert order and tidy side bedroom, beginning by putting the pile of summer pants away for the winter. Picked up, sniffed to see if they'd been laundered or needed laundering, something clanked on the floor. My watch, gone missing exactly four weeks ago to the day. I probably put it in a pocket before washing dishes at work, then the weather turned cold and I stopped wearing those pants. No idea why I didn't notice it while undressing, but I didn't, and now it's back and I'm so happy because the new one is too small for my wrist and bites.

Suppose I shall keep new watch in reserve because of that other piece of (family) common wisdom, 'you never know when it will come in handy.'
