Over time, various things have gone missing and we joke that they're with Evie's Daisy tunic. Most of the time, they turn up - mainly because I'm neurotic and I keep looking for them until I find them - but that isn't always the case. Our passports disappeared off my desk last October and have never turned up (yes there is a remote possibility that I threw them out by accident, but I prefer to blame the ghost) and the *tooth fairy* had to remove some teeth from my dresser after Evie mentioned finding some weird boxes with teeth in top drawer. The *tooth fairy* remembers moving them to someplace where they wouldn't be snooped, but has since forgotten where that might be. I'm thinking they're in the black hole with the Daisy tunic. Or in a wall where the ghost has hidden them.
Matt's flashlight has disappeared recently, and one weekend not long ago while hanging shelves in the garage, the stud sensor he was using disappeared. Sure, it may have been misplaced, but we have looked and looked and looked and can't find it.
Today I spent the better part of an hour turning the house upside down looking for William's Nintendo DS. He swears I took it from him one night after bedtime when I caught him playing it late, and I do remember doing that, but it's not in any of the places I would normally put it. Evie's has vanished too. Srsly. I can see one getting misplaced, but two? Within a week? I've looked under and behind all the furniture, and in every place I can think of, however unlikely, and I'm coming up empty. And it's not like we're hoarders living in a mountain of stuff & have no idea where anything is....
So if anyone reading this happens to be clairvoyant or whatever you need to be to find missing things & can help me out, I'd really appreciate it (and so would Evie and William - he bought a new game this weekend & can't play it until we find his DS). Because I'm not liking option 4 any more than options 1-3, and that's that I'm sleepwalking and randomly throwing things away for no reason. That would just be crazy.
**********************************************************We went on a road trip this weekend! Matt & I took the kids to Connecticut to spend the weekend with Piece of Cake Laura and her family.We had SUCH a nice weekend, and were really amazed at how well the kids - 8 of them between us - got along. I took a bunch of pictures & will try to share them later this week, but for right now my pillow is calling after a weekend of travel, laughter and late nights. Life is good :)
