Has anyone seen my salad tongs? How about some white bowels with a blue rim? I’m also looking for a half dozen spoons at least. There’s other the stuff I’m missing outside of the kitchen, the latest issue of the Ensign for example, and about a thousand socks, and a Scooby Doo DVD that was due at the library last September.
Where does it all go?!!
Yes, I’ll humbly admit that I am not the tidiest and most organized of people, but entire sets of cereal bowels should not be disappearing! I can say with some pride that my house is clean enough to walk through at least twice a week, so I know the stuff is not hiding in plain sight. I change bed sheets, organize the toy shelf, and vacuum out the corners as needed, so I know it’s not hiding in those places.
Usually I’m able to locate that missing everythings in this house. You all know, the homework page that Taran probably left at school which has really slipped under his feet, under the table. Or the desperately needed jacket that Emma promised, PROMISED she hung up but is really crumpled behind a couch cushion. And although it annoys me that I know where my grown man, husband left his Psych. 505 Book, I can get that too. After all, I am Mom, Locater of Stuff.
So where did the stuff I can’t find go?
