My ability to spell accurately has gone to the wayside as I have gotten older. I don't know why but tend to think it's a combination of things. Sometimes I go to an online dictionary to correct it and other times I don't. What is currently bugging me though is the word "loosing". I had always thought that "lose" was the correct spelling when referring to something getting lost and "loose" referred to something that was not tight- unless it meant that girl who....well, never mind. LOL! Anyway, I looked in a dictionary and I'm still interpreting that "losing" is the correct spelling for something getting lost, but you ladies here have always had much better spelling than me so I am asking you- what exactly am I missing with this?
