Where Are My Keys?!

Have you ever had this happen to you? You’re getting ready for work or maybe just a workout, and you’re dressed, you’ve had your coffee, your purse or briefcase or gym bag is in hand, you get to the door and …

You realize you have no idea where to find your keys.  In 2.2 minutes, you’ll miss your window of opportunity to beat the traffic/catch the bus/find 30 minutes to spare. You start to panic.

Goodness. That’s me a hundred days out of any given year. You know what I’m sayin’? Well, enough’s enough.
