Friday Fives - Things That Seem to Disappear Around Here

I'm taking a bit of a break from my usual Friday Linkups to try something a little different.  Michelle over at Because Reading is Better Than Real Life   used to do a Five on Fridays that I always enjoyed and I've seen a few other variations on the theme.  As well I'm in a list making kind of mood so I thought I'd give start making random five lists.  Sometimes they'll be bookish other weeks not so much. Today I'm thinking about all the random little things that seem to disappear around my house.

1.  Medicine cups - You know those medicine cups that come with cough syrup and children's medicine?  For some reason the gnomes seem to run off with them all the time.  And I never need them at 2 in the afternoon.  It's always right before we're heading out somewhere or at 2 in the morning and I'm trying to remember just how many ml are in a teaspoon and all that.  This drives me crazy. 

2.  Gloves - I don't know if it's because I don't really need gloves that often so I don't have a specific place for them but gloves pretty much only last one season for me before they disappear never to be heard from again.

3.  Nail Files - These aren't even one use items.  I buy them and they pretty much instantly disappear.  I'm not even sure they make it into the house.

4.  Hair Clips - I actually do okay keeping track of hair bands but hair clips get up and walk away on a pretty regular basis. 

5.  Appointment Cards - I have all these fabulous intentions about coming home and putting them on the calendar or immediately putting the appointment on the calendar in my phone.  But unfortunately they tend to disappear.  The thing that's weird with these is that they do reappear in odd places right after they've stopped being relevant. 

What disappears from your house?


  1. I seem to have a collection of those little medicine cups! I see them everywhere in the house!

  2. So true about appt cards. :) I'm always losing them!

  3. I always misplace appt cards and have to call and check only to find them in a infrequently used purse later LOL

  4. Yep at least you have someone to blame! I can only blame myself. I was at my sister' s place this morning and she couldn't remember where the play doh was that she brought yesterday!

  5. Ha! Love this :) I always lose hair clips and bobby pins. I swear, I've bought hundreds of them over the years and I bet I have 1 clip and 5 bobby pins right now. LOL!
