Well, I'm pretty sure I'm losing it. Or I've offended the gods and they are out to get me.
When I left on my trip I took my extra car key with me. You know, "just in case." I had it in my purse for the first few days, then I thought about perhaps I shouldn't carry both keys in my purse.
Now, I do not remember putting the second key elsewhere, but I might have. A couple days before I got home I had a passing thought, "I don't remember seeing the spare key." But I brushed it off and decided I'd look in my purse later. I didn't. it would be hard to over look this key because it is one of those big ones with the buttons built into it, AND it is on a white plastic tag, the kind that has a slot in it to hang in the key box. Altogether, the key and the tag are probably about four inches long. The key is an inch and a half wide.
This morning I dumped our my purse. It isn't there. I searched all the pockets of all the suitcases and small bags I too. It isn't there. I combed through the truck, under seats, under cushions, shook out anything that might be harboring a key. It isn't there. Well, crap. That kind of key cost a small fortune to replace. The last one I had done was about $70! But I will replace it because if I should lose the one I carry everyday, I'm completely screwed.
After that disappointing debacle, I decided to take the luggage to the basement and carry the Christmas boxes to the deck. I walked to the key box, picked up the key to the basement, put on my gloves and walked with the luggage to the basement. When I started to unlock the door, the key was not in my pocket!!!! Pardon me, but WTF???? I retraced my steps, then did it again, and yet two more times, but the key, on a white tag like my truck key, isn't anywhere to be found!! I carry a spare for that in my truck so that if I'm already down the stairs I don't have to walk back up for the key, so I got it out and did my tasks.
What is going on??????
Lynilu is not a happy camper!!!
Oh, yeah, BTW ... still no mouthwash!!!
Update at 6:30: I found the key to the basement. It apparently fell from my pocket as I went down the stairs and was underneath, the one place I didn't look until later. Now, if that *^#% car key will just surface in a similar fashion!
