Case of the Missing Flashlight

I use a small Maglight Flashlight by my beside to read at night in an effort to not keep my hubby up with the lights on when he's already gone to bed...for my birthday he had promised me a booklight but for now, this is what works. Or should I say worked until it came up missing...

I went to crawl in to bed the other night, got snuggled up with a good book, reached for my flashlight and - gone. I got up, searched high and low, inside and under anything I could think of. Where could I have left it? Even after Justin's help looking that night we could not find the missing light. We went to bed - unable to read for the night without it, and I was left tossing and turning trying to think of where it might have gone to.

The next day we spent half the day looking for it again. I get so frustrated when I'm looking for something and can't find it. My condo isn't that big - how do things just disappear?

Several hours later I was preparing dinner in the kitchen. I went to grab something out of the freezer only to find this:
What in the world? Well, along came the culprit... All I could do was laugh because I know my sweet Kenzie can't open the freezer so she must have slipped it in right under my nose the night before. It was so cold and the light wouldn't work when I tried to turn it on.

...Once it thawed out, it did work again! ...Still waiting on that booklight.

Amy, thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting! I have enjoyed checking your blog--now I am craving some peaches, yum. Okay, now I'm going to slip into my Snuggie and get in bed! :)

What a little twit! Oh, how I love her. Don't you wish you could get inside that little mind and know what she's plotting next?

Haha- that is too cute! I nanny for a family with a freezer just like that and one of the girls (2 years old) like to hide her blanket in the freezer for safe keeping. I don't know- maybe it is something about freezers?
