Where Is It?


Where is it

Have you seen it

When did you have it last

Did you look in the drawer

I'll help you look for it

Can you use something else

Only if we can't find it

Why do you need it right now

Can this wait until tomorrow

No, I'm in the middle of something

This is a typical day in the little hippie house. We take turns losing things and then we both spend time looking for them. Good thing we don't have anything else to do. Ha.

I think it's amazing that nobody in your home has Alzheimer's because that sounds a lot like what goes on here, in MY house, every day.

LL Cool Joe said...

I find I spend a great deal of my time trying to find things I've put somewhere but can't remember where! The joys of getting older.

Shadow said...

.....sounds familiar!

Brian Miller said...

smiles. but you look for it together so that is not a bad thing right?

anne h said...

My hippie sister prays to Saint Anthony to help her find things.
Then one day, she lost her St Anthony medallion.
Now what?
Bless her little heart, she finally found it!

Opaque said...

Made me smile... my parents do this sometimes...

TALON said...

lol! I've had that conversation so many times with everyone in the house. This had me laughing this morning. Thanks, TechnoBabe!

Oh, and I once couldn't find my glasses and they were on my head - lol!

Jeanie said...

The image you created in my mind with this made me smile....with Doc it is always his glasses.

Betty said...

I HATE to look for something. I usually just use something else or buy a replacement. :)

Jeni said...

Around this place, something or other is always getting lost, tossed out by mistake (really hate when that happens) or something or other that causes minor sometimes a major bit of panic. Which in turn often causes the dining room and kitchen to continue looking like a pig sty because I never know what I dare to toss in the trash and daughter here doesn't like to look for the trash can (or so it seems to me at times.) Not that I'm not a packrat or anything to begin with though cause I am but still, when I try to get rid of things and have the impetus to do that, I wish I could just completely follow through then instead of having to stop mid-stream ya know. ARRGH!

DJan said...

Isn't this just the way it's supposed to be? I've never found it to be different, except that now that I'm older it happens more often. The worst is when I decide to put something in a special place so I can find it again, and then forget where. :-)

So funny and so true. It puzzles me that I can remember where I put things in a house, now nonexistent, where I grew up sixty years ago, but not where I put something last week in my present house. I must be losing my mind--last in, first out.

Mama Zen said...

I spend a great deal of my time finding things . . . for my husband!

Rock Chef said...

Sounds very familiar - I lose things, the kids lose things, Mrs RC finds them.

Ina in Alaska said...

We say all of that at our house. And I will add the following which I know does not happen at yours: the TV is too loud!!!

Gary's third pottery blog said...

(re: your question about towns, I am not sure! Sorry! I just know-knew Lincoln :)

The Phoenix Rising said...

I found it... wait a moment... no I didn't

Kristina P. said...

I'm usually looking for the remote.

lisleman said...

It's a little different for me. It's the hereafter - walk into a room and what is it I'm here after.

JStar said...

LOL...sounds like my daughters here...mostly my youngest...

KleinsteMotte said...

Ah. This is so familiar. remembering passwords is a really tricky one. We seemt o need more and more of them.

Vinny "Bond" Marini said...

Partnership!

MikeWJ at Too Many Mornings said...

My house, too. I'm starting to believe that we need less stuff. Less stuff means less stuff to lose or misplace, and more free time with less frustration.

Maggie May said...

I know the feeling well.

Robert the Skeptic said...

I have become convinced that the ONLY way to locate a lost item is to purchase a new replacement. The old one shows up usually within a day.

Cinner said...

This is so typical of our little hippie house to, they seem to get more and more frequent,,,why do we suddenly need something we have not seen for years, and when we find it,,,,,then where did you put it...I am seriously thinking about labeling things, but then I will lose the labels, what was the question.....

Jillsy said...

sometimes, i feel like it's my head i'm looking for!! :-)

English Rider said...

One day I chose to abstain from this game. He who loses, looks (or not). I practice serenity through indifference.

blueviolet said...

I shuffle and move things from place to place in the house and never remember where I moved it. I know what you're talking about here!

Stickup Artist said...

It sounds considerable and reasonable to me. I wish more parents had the time and resources to deal with their children in such a thoughtful manner. I'm glad you have found your way there and have patience and sweetness for the mundane day-to-day. It's an art.

Sniffles and Smiles said...

Sounds like my house!!!! ROFL!!!! Love it!!!! Thanks for admitting this...I feel SOO much better :-)))) BTW, love the new look to your blog!!!! AWESOME!!! ~Janine XO

Syd said...

We did that today. I was trying to find something and could not remember where I last saw it. I knew that it was here, so I finally said....How important is it? Not very and let it go.

Lori said...

This happens at my house too. I swear that someone must move things on purpose just to hear me rant and walk around looking confused. At least the 2 of you are looking for the missing things together. :) I hope you two have a marvelous weekend doing something you enjoy. XX

Kazzy said...

I almost never lose anything, but the men.....oh yeah. They are experts at it!

Joanna Jenkins said...

When you finish find yours and James' stuff, would you come over to my house and help me find my stuff too :-)

I lost things all the time!

Happy weekend Techno.

In my house it's more like my husband asks me where something is and I tell him it's in the same place it always is.

bernthis said...

I've lost a $600 car key, checks, socks etc and I'm the ONLY adult in the house with ONE kid. Oh and did I mention a cell phone and a strapless bra? Don't ask

Jinksy said...

As I live alone, if I lose anything, it stays lost! Until it decides to show up again, of course... LOL :)

Retiredandcrazy said...

I had a saying "it'll turn up". Davy hated it!

TheUndertaker said...

Oh sounds just like my house, me and two teenage boys...

Cricket said...

In my house, it's my job to know where everything is. I hate that, but I daresay I'm good at it.

"What, you can't find something? Ask the grouchy guy in the kitchen where it is."

My recent personal best: remembering where my wife left the key to her bicycle lock 5 years ago.

It was someplace safe. Oy.

Your little hippie house sounds like a delight to me.
