Not Me! Monday!

Yes, I know. It's more than halfway through Monday, and I haven't blogged yet. I will blog now, although the "Are you still alive?" phone calls are kind of fun.

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This was created by MckMama, head on over to her blog to see what she and everyone else have NOT been doing this week!

I am NOT on a manhunt for some very important files. Nope, the reason that I haven't blogged is because I have been doing something so very exciting like going to a spa, NOT because I have been frantically searching my house for the kids' Social Security cards. I am NOT trying to do my taxes, but have misplaced the very most important things I need.

I did NOT try to get the kids' SSNs off last year's tax return only to find that I am also missing all the tax returns for the last seven years. I did NOT try to get Drew's SSN off his medical records only to find those missing, too. Nope, I am very organized and am NOT missing the most important documents in the house!

I do NOT have a strong recollection of realizing that the kids had been getting into the file cabinet, and taking the important things out of there. I do NOT remember giving everything to my husband and telling him, "We need to get these out of here for now. Please put them..." and then my memory is gone.

My darling husband does NOT remember this event as well, and cannot remember where it was he put them. Nope, we are fabulously organized and we would NEVER stash stuff in a super-secret hiding place and lose it.

I have NOT torn the house apart, looking everywhere I could imagine, and some places I could not. I did NOT find files for every season of Fantasy Football for the last fifteen years. Nope, we definitely have our priorities straight, there is NO way I could have easy access to my husband's draft list for fifteen years, but lose Social Security cards.

Oh, but I did NOT gasp for joy when I tried to see if the files has maybe fallen behind the desk and were trapped between the desk and the wall, only to discover my missing shoe!!!!

Oh, happy day! Then, I was NOT horrified that that meant I had not moved the desk to vacuum under it in that many months. Oh, well. I don't care, I have my shoe!!! WoooHooo!!!

OK, that's been long enough. I'm back to searching the house for missing files. Now I know where Ben gets his Secret Stash skills...

Whoo hoo, the shoe!! Hope you find your files quick!

Yay! The shoe!!!

Relax about the shoe. It was not there all along, but appeared from the Alternate Universe. I'm glad to learn I'm not the only one who puts things in a safe place only to forget where it is!

Marty said...

Not it!!! I did not lose the files. Unless, of course, you find them in a spot that I very clearly put them. Then, yeah, it was me.....

DJan, I'm glad I at least found the portal to the alternate universe! I'll keep checking there daily, just to see what comes up. ;)

Marty, I did not say you lost the files. I merely suggested that you cannot remember the place that I specifically asked you to put them. Regardless, thank you for doing such a good job keeping them out of the kids' hands... LOL!!
