I think there's a dark hole in my house... or a boogie man who lives under the bed and takes small treasures so that he can sell them for money... or a mouse family who has to steal stuff from us to decorate their abode... or a little 16 month old who never stops and puts things in secret hiding places that his mother has yet to discover....

But regardless, we have a long list of missing items, and the list is growing at a rapid rate.  And this is a problem for me because I'm a clean person, and organization freak, and the extreme opposite of a pack rat-- I do NOT keep anything that isn't still warm from body heat (proving that people actually use it), and I am Goodwill's favorite person, because I stop by every 2 weeks with more stuff from our house that was standing in the way of me and clutter-free.

The moral of the story- I know where everything is, stuff does not get lost, and I can put my hands on anything we own in .34 seconds.

Or I could, until the mysterious disappearances began!

If you have seen any of these items, please contact me immediately.  You will be rewarded.

  2. Hysterical!!! I just KNOW a monster ate a pair of Maddy's brand-new, still-in-the-box tennis shoes! Can't find them anywhere!
