Don't you hate it...

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
When you have an item... know it is important, put it somewhere where you think you will remember, but can't find it no matter how hard you look?

That's where I'm at right now. I had a list of scottish bands listed for me when I went and now I can't find it. I know I didn't throw it away!!!

Yea and i still cant find it.
I bought this nicee bracelet but put it and some of my other jewlery in a box on Easter because we had people coming over. I still can not find the box. I hope you find your stuff.

Welcome to my world. If I don't put an item where it is supposed to be or in my purse, I am likely to never see it again.
I hope you find your list.

I hate it when that happens!

I hope you find your list soon!

I call that putting it into a "safe place". So safe that I can't find it again. That is one of the most frustrating things.

The problem gets worse, the older you get..

I'm usually pretty good about finding things I've hidden in a "safe" place, but not when it comes to something the CATS have hidden! Those objects mysteriously disappear into the kitty 'black hole'..

That's exactly my thinking. I have yet to find it. This was a list of scottish bands that were given to me by a scotsman that we heard on our tour and it was incredibe. I hate the fact that I can't find it.

That's how it can be around here...hubby sometimes tosses things without asking if it is something of importance to me...just assumes that if he doesn't want it or need it, it's useless...

Yeah, I have the promise ring DH had given me stashed somewhere in the house. Who knows if I'll ever find it. Sometimes if you quit looking it will turn up. I hope you find your list either purposely or by accident.

I've done that so many times I bet the people at our old house are finding lots of treasurers!
I still do that. I looked for weeks for some filters for our coffee pot and after I'd given up and decided to reorder them, hubby opens a drawer and low and behold, there they are, right on top of everything to make it worse!!

I used hide money from my crazy ex husband. When I kicked his sorry self out I was packing up my things and found wads of cash all over the house. In really weird places. I found some bills in an empty lipstick case. I found some hidden in the flap of a pair of boots.
I don't do it anymore because I was always forgetting where I hid it.

Whoever moved into the place later probably hit pay dirt under a floorboard or something.

Oh God, I'm in trouble then! I've always been bad about it.....don't tell me it gets worse!

I think my cats are responsible for losing my wedding band/engagement ring and another ring (all took off at the same time, same place) for me a few years back!

I have this enormous bulletin board that Neil made for me a couple of weeks ago that I use and a basket in the kitchen that I stash paper stuff.
But I try not to hide items from myself anymore!!

Last night I had that happen to me before a party. I couldn't find a costume ring that I wanted to wear.

Mostly, though, I am the one being asked by everyone in the house, "Do you know where this item of mine is?" What's worse is that I usually do. Do you think that anyone finds anything for me? That ring is still missing.

I "blame" the cats for a lot of things that disappear - b/c I know it couldn't have been anyone else!

I'm still trying to find a candle that one of them knocked out of the candleholder - a year later. I have NO idea how they could have lost THAT!

My advice would be to NOT leave any jewelry laying around with cats running loose in the house, b/c they seem to LOVE jewelry. I found that lesson out the hard way!

I always hate being the "bearer" of bad news, but it does get worse.. But you learn to live with it..

OMG that's funny! I hope they enjoyed it if they found it!

I used to have to hide money from my 2nd ex-husband, too. The best hiding place I ever found was inside of a roll of tinfoil. But I stopped putting it there, b/c I was always afraid I'd forget the money was in there, and accidently throw it out..

Ain't that the truth!

The worst thing I lost was my mother's necklace that I inherited when she died. It got lost when we moved and it took 18 months to find it. It was in the last box I unpacked after we moved. It was in a box full of craft patterns, cat toys, books and embroidery hoops. Why would I put jewelry in there?

I hope you find your list!

That happened to me with my old phone.

I only keep this phone generally for emergency cases, but about 2 years ago I put it down, somewhere I thought I knew it would be safe, but couldn't find it. I practically turned the house upside down to find it. I looked in my room, under the bed, downstairs, and knew I hadn't chucked it out.

2 years on, and it's in the drawer by my bed. And I'd looked in there at least 17 times!

That happens to me all the time. I'll put something somewhere, make a mental note ("Okay, the Ipod is on this shelf") and immediately forget it. Then when I want the thing, I can't remember where I put it and I'll search EVERYWHERE. Then I'll give up and go without it. When I return, all of a sudden, there it is, in plain view. Infuriating.l

I do it all the time

I will set something down as I come into the house and 15 mins later.... it's gone

As Susie would say "It's the Gnomes"
