I lost $60....

Sunday after church was kind of a crazy day- nothing new. One of the moms I babysit for dropped off $60 from babysitting last week. I took it out of the envelope and put it on the kitchen table.

And I looked at it. I thought to myself- I am going to lose it if I don't put it away. But I wasn't sure if my husband needed it for gas or if I would deposit it at the bank. And sure enough, later, I couldn't find it.

I asked my husband, asked the kids and no one knew. Or so they said...

I knew I had to check the kitchen garbage bags.

I was too tired on Sunday night, so i did it on Monday.

Lots of disgusting garbage- gross and I found nothing.
I cleaned it all up and tried not to dwell on it.

Then my son turned the corner and handed me the money. Apparently, the little guy put it in his big brother's toy bank.

And you know I had asked the little guy 20 times if he saw mommy's money.
Apparently, I wasn't asking the right way?
Everyone got a great laugh as we took tweezers to pry the 3 - $20 bills out of the toy bank.

I was extremely happy to have the money back.
But, boy- do these kids keep me on my toes.

Have you ever lost money?

  1. HA ha... I once thew our rent money in the garbage. I blamed it on being frazzled with 3 kids.... THREE!!! Sheesh, if I only knew. LOL

  2. So happy to hear you found it! My hubby and I had put our food money in an envelope so that we wouldn't lose it. Of course we lost it...3 years ago{!!!!} and still haven't found it. Someday I am sure we will and will have a great laugh about it!

  3. My parents lost hundreds of dollars in travelers checks somewhere in the house. They finally found it about 5 years later!

  4. Last January I was cleaning my junk shelf next to my computer. Its kind of where I throw everything and quickly becomes a mess anyway I found $75 in an envelope. I live alone and had no memory of why I put it there or what it was for or anything. I did the happy dance and ordered Chinese food! I am just surprised I never missed it that's a lot of money for me!!

  5. Whew! I'm glad you found it. Too bad it was after going through the trash. :(

    Been there. Done that.
