I'm a good hider. I do awesome at Hide n' Seek! And that's really about the only time that skill comes in handy . . .
Somewhere in this house is a necklace with a guitar that my son absolutely LOVED! I bought it for him in secret for Christmas . . 3 years ago now. I hid it so he didn't found it. It is in one awesome hiding place!
Last year in March I found boxes of Valentines on clearance for 10 cents a box. I couldn't believe it! I bought at least 8 boxes so that the kids could have choices this year. And I hadn't even spent a dollar! I put then somewhere around the box of Valentines decorations. I have searched three attics, one office, and one bedroom. I could not find them. We went to the store and had to pay around $3 per box instead. I know, I know. It's only $12 for four kids. BUT, it's the point that somewhere in this house is at least 8 boxes of Valentines already bought and paid for at a big discount!!!!
In January I saw the perfect gift for the hubster. I bought it. I kept it in a brown paper bag in the closet in my office. I did not lose that. At a later time I bought him a card and chocolate. For whatever brilliant reason, I did not put that in the paper bag. I searched for about 25 minutes this evening to try and find the card and candy. I am happy to report that I DID FIND IT!! Hooray!!!
So, my new plan for hiding things around the house is that I am going to create a log for myself on my computer, password protected of course, that will tell me where I put things. I could be upset here. But I'd like to focus on the fact that I am such an excellent hider! Maybe one day I'll be a good finder. Maybe . . . someday . . .
Tonight I am thankful that I at least found the card and candy I had bought for the hubster! I was starting to panic a little! Now we'll see what kind of a hider the hubster is . . . I've been dropping not-at-all-subtle hints for the past three weeks that I would really like a new punching bag for Valentine's Day :) I really have enough jewelry. I can use a punching bag even with my knee being moody. And my old punching bag is ripping out. Nothing says love like more gym equipment!!! :)
