LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, I'm laughing because I bet we ALL can relate to this one.

Let me see, did you check the refrigerator? You don't want to know how many things I have put in there or the freezer that did NOT belong there. [Smile]

Perhaps the garbage? That sounds like something I would do.

Lol!

I always lose my water bottle and end up finding it on the counter in the bathroom. Did you take a bathroom break and take the dish cloth with you?

Haha...

My best one was putting the keys in the toaster for breakfast. Is your dishcloth with the waffles? Did you put it in your purse where the keys ought to be?

If you are like me, you are unlikely to find it back in the drawer with the folded clean ones.

Good luck with the hunt, and let us know where it turns up. I hope you are feeling better.

I've put things in the washer instead of the hamper before. [bonk]

I've also left things in the garage when I go out to feed the cats. [loco]

I once found a book I was reading in the freezer. [shake]

I am famous for carrying something around and then placing it

Where it can only be found days later.....usually by accident.

Hang in there.

I love you anyways. [kiss]

I always find ice cream in the cabinet... There's something about the freezer that completely escapes me... I just can't remember to put things back.

I once found my car keys in the shower... Glad they were discovered before anything catastrophic happened to the expensive little device.

My favorite was a chicken nugget in the nightstand... Don't ask, 'cause I oviously don't know.

It seems anything I'm holding on to is at risk of getting lost. It sure is fun to find things. [Smile]

I really think they should make packaging that holds up a little better against melted ice cream. It's pretty bad when you wake up in the morning and there are puddles everywhere.

That's what I was afraid of ... thought I'd find it somewhere REALLY weird!

Thank goodness I got it out of the garbage disposal in time! I was rinsing a big pot and all the water just carried it "downstream!" [lol]

It all depends on what else you were doing, either at the same time or right after you did the dishes. It's the multi-tasking thing. I couldn't do it at all when I was sick.

I'd check the cupboard where you put your dishes, if I were you. But if the phone rang while you were doing dishes, it's by the phone or somewhere on the way to the phone.

My kid went to make a chocolate milk once, and put the gallon of milk in with the glasses. But because we both had Lyme, I knew right where to look!

I get in the shower, wash hair, was body, turn water off, then stand there and wonder, did I wash my hair.

I then proceed to turn the water back on and do it all over again.

Max rewashes so far (I think) has been three.

Just this morning, I took a bowl from the cabinet to have breakfast. Walked to the other cabinet to get the cereal. Then walked back and took another bowl from the cabinet. It wasnt until after setting three bowls on the counter I realized what I had done.

I really hate this.

Few days ago I got a glass of water from the frig,and probably something else to eat.

Looked for 2 days for that glass of frige water. NO glass anywhere

Opened frig for food later that week,,there it was a COLD glass of water,,,right there on the shelf.

MY big problem is I put a pencil to draw lines behind my ear to keep track of it. Guess my ears arent what they used to be.

Pencil is ALWAYS gone when I reach for it and need it RIGHT NOW!!!OR my hooded sweat shirt and jacket are rubbing it the wrong way!!

Randibear, I have a similar toothpaste funny, but I'm not sure I can blame it on Lyme brain:


It was the middle of the night, we were visiting my in-laws for Christmas. I didn't want to wake anyone when changing my son's diaper, so I didn't turn on the light.


I grabbed the A & D ointment and slathered up his bottom. I noticed it felt a little gritty, but I was too sleepy for that to register in my brain.


The next morning I realized I put toothpaste on his bottom. Poor kid!


Oh my, I'll never live that one down.

Haha! What planet have I been on not to have seen this thread until now?!

I am THE queen of losing and misplacing stuff, it's really pitiful.

So Tutu, it was in the garbage disposal?! That's better than the OVEN, which is where I found my last dishtowel - after I caught it on fire! [bonk]

I did the reverse put away of cereal and milk too! A BIG hunkin' gallon of milk, in the bottom shelf of the cereal cabinet, and the cereal box in the refrigerator!

Poor hubby, he couldn't believe I put a half filled gallon container of milk in the cupboard. Like, I did this on purpose? [Wink]

One tip I finally gave myself, though. If I'm trying to think of a place to put something (like I know I'll need/use it later), I try really really hard to think of a place that I know eventually I'll one day go back to--like a drawer, or cupboard.

If I"m trying to be practical, I won't ever remember where I put that "something" at. If I put it in a place that I use frequently (like a junk drawer), then I can count on finding that certain something, eventually, and I get a bit of peace of mind from that.

Make sense?
Nah, thought not!
