@*#&$!!!! >:0(

I am blogging now.
Crap day.
I lost my keys two days ago...to my van.
Which was strange because my house wasn't really messy and I couldn't find them in my usual places.
I have one key to my van.
My husband has a car.
He was driving my daughter to school today and got a flat tire.
wE don't have cell phones and he doesn't have a jack in his car.
They got my oldest to school (via a nice policeman)
My husband walked home 8 miles.
We got a tow truck when he got back and had it towed to H&H tire where we spent 278 dollars to get two new back tires..(two because we have needed to get new tires for quite a while and we just didn't have the money..we still don't but oh well)
Now I am cleaning the house in an effort to forestall the inevital tow to the dealership so they can cut me a new key with a chip in it and then program the key.
I am hoping to find my keys but am losing hope because I found my house key sans car key in my upstairs bathroom...
which means two things...
either the kids were playing with my keys and removed my key from my ring (this didn't happen...I know when the little buggers are lying..and they are a little old to be doing that at 9 and 16 years of age. )
Or, my dog ate my key.
You may think "Oh Chris, dogs don't eat keys."

Well, you'd be wrong.
My dog eats everything.
We have found all sorts of things in his poop.
he will chew anything...eat anything.
Last night he got on the counter and ate a stick of butter with the wrapper on it.
My key was plastic on the top with a small metal portion sticking out the bottom.
He may have decided he liked to chew on it and then swallowed cause that's what he does.
Or he may have found them and carried them somewhere.
I don't know..and won't till I turn over every last square inch of this house.
Which is what I will be spending the remainder of my evening doing.
HOpe you guys have a better night than I am having.
Talk to you all later.

This was just painful. Losing keys. I can totally identify with this. I never did find that extra van key. A total pisser offer. My word verification: creppyr. LOL.

Hope you find it!!!

Chris, I am so sorry to read this. I really, really hope you find the key soon, although I would prefer it to not be in a pile of dog mess.

I sincerely hope your day does nothing but get better from here.

I found one of my car keys years later after it had fallen into my chair cushion. Found it by cutting a hole in the bottom of the chair to retrieve my cell phone ringing in there.

Sorry about the keys... Losing a key(s) is such a pain, because it causes so much chaos. I hope you find it soon, so that you won't have to spend more time with the dog than you really want to.

Dang, Chris. I am sorry about the craptastic day. I hope that you find your car key and tomorrow is much, much better.

to Lainie Painie--LOL! "...cell hone ringing in there." lol There was time when that could have happened at my house.

Chris--ugh. God knows where your keys are! I just asked Him to lead you to them! :D I did!

Sending positive thoughts to help you find that key! Hope things get better from here on out...

Hopefully turning the house upside down will be successful. :)

I can soooo relate to losing keys. This has happened to me way too often. Ouch on the extra cost of tires and hopefully you won't have to pay an arm and a leg for that extra key.

Sorry your day's been so rough. I'm sending you lots of positive energy and hoping that dog passes that key real soon.


Amber said...

I was hoping to hear you'd found your keys by now!
Just a winner of a day all around, huh?

Good luck!!

outdoor.mom said...

oh wow raw deal!! Well just so you know, we are missing Art Dog's Geography book. Its a day for stuff missing. I think it was sucked into an unseen vortex along with your key ;-)

Tammy said...

Dude....I only have one key to my car also...something I should remedy this wknd...sorry you've had such a crap day...hope you find the key soon, and sucks that hubby had to walk 8 miles to get back home..a cheap cell phone might be a consideration at this point? Hope it gets better. :)

SeattleRunnerGirl said...

Oh, gosh, Chris - that really sucks! I hope your week and weekend only get better. Ugh on losing keys & "hungry" dogs!

M Pax said...

I lost my keys a year ago and still haven't found them. They have to be in here somewhere. I blame my personal vortex ... or giant aliens ...

Julie Lost and Found said...

oh dear!! what a crap day. so sorry!

We used to ahve a dog that ate EVERYTHING. My mom used to wear pantyhose knee his and my dog ate them all the time and they'd find poop in the yard with knee highs all the time. How gross is that??? LOL

Lanie...that is too funny!!!!

We use to lose keys all the time so like 12 or so years ago we put a key hook thing by the front door that that has 4 hooks so we just ALWAYS hang up our keys as soon as we come in and we never lose them anymore.

I don't think I would want to have to look for that key if the dog got ahold of it lol.
