Lost...

I guess it's time to finally 'fess up. My digital camera is lost. Lost, lost, lost, lost, lost. It disappeared shortly after we returned from Disney in October. It also disappeared before I downloaded all my Disney pictures. (sob!) This is killing me. I didn't realize how often I take pics of the girls until I couldn't any more.

It doesn't help that the camera seems to be mocking me. I rarely, rarely remember dreaming, and yet twice this week I dreamt about that stupid camera. Where, oh where, can it be?

I know what happened. After snapping a couple of pics of the girls, I set the camera down in the house somewhere. L. and S. wanted to play with it. Instead of putting it back in my purse where it belonged, I put it up somewhere out of their reach. I have just about torn the house apart trying to find it with no luck.

One small part of me is convinced Mr. W. moved it somewhere and then forgot that he 'helped' me out. It's happened before that he has moved things and then I can't find them (like say, my keys).

Where, oh where are you tonight?
Why did you leave me here all alone?
I searched the house over and thought I would find you,
But you just mock me and pbbbbbbt you're still gone.

Good luck. If its any help, we found DHs wedding ring in the vacuum cleaner attachment carrier 3 years after he lost. We'd even redone the kitchen where he was sure he'd lost it. There is always hope!

did you look over there? or under there? what about behind that thing, there?

It'll turn up. Really.

I am an infamous "stasher" so I probably have more "lost" stuff than you'd think. I'm convinced that one day, I'll have stashed so much stuff that it's all we'll have left in our house!

BTW, we sing that sing all the time in our house.

I have been known, more often than I care to admit, to have to call my cell phone to know where it is...

Said Camera will show up...

Thanks for the support (and the suggestions, TJ, I didn't think to look behind that thing). This would not be the first thing I've lost. Am I the only person who wants one of those 'clap your hands and it beeps' thingies on the remote to the tv?
