lost

Where did it go?

It disappeared.  It just vanished.

I spent days looking for it, hours at a time.

I looked under the bed, in the closet, everywhere.

 

But I can’t find the remote for the bed so my husband can sleep somewhat upright. If you have sleep apnea, you know what I am talking about.  It’s like a hospital bed. Adjust it any way you want it to go.

I know I shouldn’t think so, but I suspect a little grandkid about 3 yrs. old may have moved it.  He loved to push the buttons and watch the head or the feet of the bed go up or down.   I did call and ask him if he took it, and he said no.

 

Of course it didn’t help that it had been missing for a few days before we realized it. My husband stopped raising his bed every night because sometimes he could just fall asleep. And it doesn’t help that there is a garbage can right but he night table where the remote would Sit. I really do think I would have checked the trash bag if it weighed much as it is usually just full of tissues.  But it’s been 3 weeks and the remote has now shown up.

I’m an organizer, and I don’t like to say I lost something, but it’s lost. Possibly lost forever.

We called the bed company and they wanted $150 for a new remote.  Then it turned out that they could take m y emote – since we got matching beds – and pair it to his bed.  So we did that since I only raised mine when I had foot surgery and had to be in bed several days.

Still hoping we find it, but I’m almost giving up.  But – you never know.  I have yet to pull absolutely everything off the closet floor – just in case it’s in there.  About 2 years ago I found a digital camera in a boot.  Apparently my husband packed it in the boot on the way home from a vacation and forgot, and we just thought we lost that camera.  Of course when we found it we already had better cameras.

So even though I’m an organizer, some things can get lost, accidentally.

Never said anything was 100%.

Reminder:

Have a place for everything, and put everything in its place.

And don’t change it!   (story for another day)

 

 

PS  If you have little kids and remotes – hide them (the remotes, not the kids) when they come over.

Or the remotes may disappear!
