I have lost a broom before and it usually has to do with the kids taking it and playing with it. But in all honesty, I put things down in weird places and forget where I place them. Kinda funny when I look back on it!

Are you kidding? I can lose ANYTHING!! I'm amazed if I look for something and it's where I think it should be.

KellieJo, I thought your mother-in-law rode off on your broom!  devil    Oh, I'm soooo bad!
 
I solved the problem.  I have three brooms!  One in the garage, one in the kitchen, and one on the patio.  This way I don't have to run out to the garage whenever I want to sweep something up and I'm never without a broom.

I can't laugh too hard, though, KellieJo. I just threw away my garbage disposal stopper (at least I think that is what happened to it, lol). Guess I was having a fibro moment and just popped it in the trash. Sigh, gotta go get a new one. eyes turn

Broom?  How do you lose a big honking weed whacker?  It's bright red and connected to about three orange extension cords.  You go in the house, get a drink, pee, call yourself a moron for even trying to whack weeds because you will certainly pay the price...go back outside and the whole set up is gone!

The hubby went to Sears on Wednesday and bought a new one.  I am not allowed to touch it...cry me a river.  I'm thinking about losing the vacuum cleaner next week.

Rofl........

Donna I can relate paying a price......mowed the yard about 2 weeks ago, ain't doing that again, I had problems with my hands/forearms for three days......

You guys are great I needed that laugh.

Sherrine, my mother-in-law does live with us........she's mellowed out with age so several years ago I could see that happening, lol.

I loved my mother-in-law but there are always jokes about them so I just couldn't resist!  turn
 
Oh, Shannon, get rid of the Kirby!  I had one of those and paid almost $300 for it back in the 1980's but you needed a Sumo wrestler to move that thing!  I always ended up at the chiropractor's office.  Then I had my husband vacuuming for me.  He hated it too.  I now have a Simplicity and love it.  It is lighter weight so I have no problems using it. 
 
The Kirby?  I tried to sell it in a garage sale and no one would take it, either.  Everyone knew how heavy they are and difficult to push...healthy people!  So, my humble opinion is,  kiss Kirby good-bye, put a bow on it, and stick it out by the street.

I don't vacuum, period. It's one of the things that always causes me problems, so I just wait for my husband to do it. And he does everything when HE feels like it! Soooo - - when it comes to the house, I've had to put so many "blinders" on that it's a wonder I can still see anything. It does make me sad when I remember how beautiful this house was when we moved in 10 years ago, but then I wake up and say, "HEY! Snap out of it!" At least I have a house, heat, food, a family, etc. etc. A little perspective helps a lot.

I used to leave the broom in the basement or garage when I was using it... Forget.. Next time I was at the store I'd think, "Well, that broom must have gotten old and I threw it out." and buy a new one. When daughter moved in with us she was like, "Mom! How many brooms do you have????" Now that her fibro is rearing its ugly head she understands and loves that she never has to go far for a broom. There is one behind every curtain, the fridge, in the stair well, they're EVERYWHERE!

Oh my gosh! You mean that other people lose their broom and dustpan? I thought that I was the only one! I'm constantly losing them! When we redid our laundry room last fall, I even made a little utility closet inside the larger closet for the broom, dustpan, mops, etc. I still lose them! For several years, I have used the huge, garage size of dustpans, thinking that there would be no way that I could lose them. I still manage to do it! Recently, I couldn't find it for the longest time, and bought another of the same kind. The first dustpan turned up in the closet, right where it was supposed to be (I hadn't looked there). So, now I have two of these huge dustpans floating around the house!
