I spent several minutes today looking for a small brightly colored pad of Post-it notes on my desk. I searched under and around my laptop computer, finally decided that those kids stole my Post-it notes. They steal from me all the time. That is why I can never find a roll of tape (duct or Scotch), or scissors or garden tools. My dust-pan is always missing and I have no idea where the milk goes.
And then, just now, I glanced up from my computer where I finished my recent shift and the Post-it notes are in plain sight, sitting on top of the AT&T bill which is visible so I will remember to call and ask why I am being charged per text message instead of the other rate like my husband has.
Post-it notes! Where were you hiding? Were you being held hostage? Did I pay a ransom and not know it?
Nevermind. I’m just glad you’re back. I needed you.

I am glad not to be the only one who has miscellaneous stationery items hiding from me!
In my never-ending endeavor to de-clutter my house, I have recently found post-it note pads in just about every color, size, and shape ever made!
So, why is it that when I need one – just one! – to mark my page, I can’t find a single note, let alone a pad of them. Do they take a hike; feel a need for self-preservation, or what? I give up!
Just like socks that go in to the dryer in pairs and come out singles. Some mysteries in Life will never be solved.
All of those things are missing in my house, too!
i do stuff like that all the time..i’ll be yelling “where is my”…then see it…i swear i’m losing what little mind i have left!! 😉
I cannot even count the number of times that I have (1) lost something (2) searched FRANTICALLY for it and then (3) found it sitting in plain sight. In s a place that I KNOW I had searched during the frantic part of our program.
I love this post – happens all the time around here. I’ve decided it’s all about the point of view. If I leave the room and come back again later, suddenly I can see the missing item.
The ransom part made me laugh. 🙂
