I am not going crazy!

I recently have moved. During this move I misplaced my plates, silverware, and odd and ends of dishes. I didn't remember packing them, although they weren't at the old house. I really was beginning to think I was losing it. We searched high and low, Rosie and Johnathan helped out at times, until last Saturday.

I went to the old house to clean the yard, and much to my surprise came across several bags of garbage that were behind the house. I started to but them into the empty garbage can, when I heard some clanks. I looked into the bag and found several dishes.

Being a kid growing up I had a Mr. Nobody living in our family. It's a lot easier having a Mr. Nobody when you have a lot of siblings. Mr. Nobody hid veggies, track mud, shoved things under the bed, left lights on, and in one instant got into some mice poison. However Mr. Nobody doesn't fly over very well when the family unit at home full time is, a mom, an eleven year old and twin two year olds.

I know that I didn't place the dishes in the garbage bag and haul them out to the backyard and hide them for me to find one surprisingly chilly Saturday. I highly doubt the odds are that the twins packed them out to the backyard, considering the bag weighed more then them. Through process of elimination we would have to assume that the eleven year old has had her hand to this mystery of events.

At last no, it was Mr. Nobody! I swear I am positive. However, whether or not who did it, I have decided to allow Mr. Nobody to contribute to my household and pay my eleven year old's cell phone bill for a while. After all he is a member of the family!

I believe I was the one who got into mouse poison, am i right? I mean...I don't know who got into it...

Abra said...

No Josie... it was David! And actually, he blamed a mouse not Mr. Nobody!

If this happened to me, no doubt it would have been me, myself and I who did it and promptly forgot.

Nancy said...

Wait, was it garbage bags FULL of dishes? Or was it just a bag full of garbage with some dishes in it?

A garbage bag full of dirty dishes.

Maybe you thought to pack them like that, and then someone else thought they were garbage so that's how they ended up in the garage?

I had asked rosie to wash the dishes and pack them. Saturday, There were three huge trash bags in the back yard. Two of which were garbage, one had dirty dishes in them, stinky, with mold. They were left over from the Halloween party. Let me make note, this is not the first time I have caught Rose throwing away dishes, because she doesn't want to wash them.
