yesterday they were (we think) on the living room end table. however neither of us can remember the last time we had them. I know, we're looking like SUCH responsible adults <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">.<br><br>
however to get a replacement key we will have to pay a $100 deposit to the dealership plus the cost of getting the key made. And without the key we can't drive ourselves to the dealership so we'd have to find a ride which would be a pain. plus both carseats are locked in the car...<br><br>
so please help me out all you smart mamas and tell me where you think our keys are hiding?<br><br>
we have already checked drawers, cabinets, toybox, cushions, under the furniture, behind the washing machine/dryer/microwave, pants pockets, and the diaper bag. i've been looking since 10 this morning and SO had to get a ride to work and is having to take the bus home which entails a 2 mile walk after waiting tables all day. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> we think ds took them but when we ask, very gently, if he has seen them he gets really nervous and can't seem to do anything but parrot back the question.<br><br>
any ideas?

I posted this very thing a few days ago-I've been driving for over 20 years and never lost keys...and my husband never has either. He walked in the door, set the keys on the table, and they disappeared. We have checked every possible place-and these are big keys, too-not easy to lose. We still can't find them.<br>
We had to call two locksmiths, the second one finally figured it out-this was a chipped key to a honda odyssey-also had to be scanned to work in the car-the dealership was going to be over 300. to get it all done. My suggestion-call a good locksmith, they can come out and get it fixed for about half the cost, and they CAN do any type of key.<br>
Seriously, call around for a locksmith. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> good luck, I seriously understand your frustration...I'm telling you , there is something in the air, even the locksmith was surprised at how busy he has been, lately.

woah, weird! That's exactly what happened....I'm 99% sure they were on the table at some point yesterday. I've checked closets, moved furniture, gone through the laundry, to no avail. how crazy....

I know it's too late now, but PSA to everybody reading this:<br>
Get a spare key made!<br><br>
I can't even fathom having only one key for anything... I guess I have a really active worst-case-scenario imagination.<br><br>
Are you sure they aren't locked in the car?

I haven't seen my keys for over 2 days now. Thank goodness DH had the spare on his key chain. Weird. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

You're supposed to ask your house ghost where they are in times like this, lol. Even if you don't believe in ghosts. I used to lose keys all the time . Someone told me once they did this whenever they lost something and it worked, I've been doing that for around 8 years now and with only a few exceptions I've found what I was looking for within five minutes.

I totally agree!! I did this as well-cause for years it has worked, but this time they didn't help. So odd.<br>
I do stress the locksmith, though, much cheaper. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Well, when mine went missing, they were in my shoe bucket by the front door. When my friend's went missing, they were in the dog food bucket <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">. So my guess, they're in a bucket :p
