Household mysteries.

I woke up this morning to see that two chairs were missing from the dining room. Checked the living room. Nope. Peeked in my mother's bedroom. Not there. Oh, where have the two chairs gone? I have a feeling they found their way back to the "mystery room," where things disappear, never to be seen again.

That behaviour is called moonlighting.
It's carried out to make you think you're going
crazy.
And eventually you'll believe you are going crazy,
unless you put an end to it - NOW!

My mother lost 2 credit cards in one day... had them when we left the house, gone when we got to AAA. I guess my truck ate them? Never been used, so maybe they will show up some day? But the changing of all the bills paid on them was sure a pain.

I see a book in the making: "The Secret Lives of ..."

What? Furniture, Medallions, cell phones, checkbooks, sippy cups....you name it. A cartoon would be cute too, showing chairs awkwardly shuffling from one place to another to hide out, other things sprouting legs and lumbering to hide in chairs, underneath cushions, in laundry hampers.

Definitely, folks, I think you've discovered a new world living right beneath your (our) noses.

I'm still laughing too! My mom doesn't have dementia, but still manages to hide things (mostly food) that I have to hunt for. But your loved ones take it to a whole new level!! :)

This probably wasn't the purpose of the original post, but you all have given me some great ideas for hiding places :)

If you are looking for jewelry try the valance of curtains, even the shower curtains. That's where a neighbor had her jewelry. The shower curtains. Who knew?

When my old friend called me to said "my wife is lost all her Jewell" and she is accused him that he is giving to house-keeper.... I told him to look at window's drapes bottom of the hems or trash basket before empty it. Some of he did recover from behind the TV and her old bags that she never use anymore.... I suggest him for replace those expensive Jewell to cheep fake diamonds that she loves so much....

ROFL, Jeanette.

BTW, I found the other chair. I was walking outside and saw it through a window. It was hiding behind one of the long curtains. Why, only the gremlins of dementia can answer. I never thought to look behind the curtains. I couldn't see the legs because other things blocked the view.
