    which cost almost $500 earlier this year. She's sure she last had them in our master bathroom. Having combed the house and cars a couple of times, I am getting ready to go through the garbage bags that will get picked up on Friday. (I'm thinking maybe they got knocked into a trash bin by mistake, and I did empty all the bathroom trash bins into the larger garbage bags earlier in the week.) I don't have any of those thick rubber gloves, though, and it would take me an hour to drive into town and back to get some.

    It's a good thing she has contact lenses; she didn't start looking for her eyeglasses until a few minutes before leaving for her first day of college classes!

    Just wish we had a little beeper locator in the eyeglass frames.

    Has anyone misplaced their eyeglasses in some weird place I might have not thought of checking? I'm not looking forward to going through those garbage bags......

    Update: Used some of dh's old leather gloves and went through the garbage bags. No glasses. sigh.......

    If I misplace my glasses, I can find the floor in the morning. LOL Had contacts for a while, but can't wear them anymore. One time I fell asleep with them in, and took about 10 minutes to figure out what was different when I woke up. I could actually see!

    I wear contacts but take them out at night. I frequently knock my glasses off the night stand and have to crawl around trying to "feel" for them. They are usually under the bed but have ended up under the nightstand and even into a bookcase that is right next to the bed.

    Yes! I found mine behind the hamper one time. I also wear contacts and didn't remember the last time I had glasses on. I must have put them on top of the hamper and put something on top of that then opened the hamper. That's the only way I figure they could have gotten back there. adult. :?

    Good luck finding them - and she needs to be included in finding them since they are hers and she's just about a full grown

    It's good a looked thru the garbage bags. My neighbor discovered, after stuffing 8 bags of leaves, that her glasses were missing. She started emptying bags and, sure enough, found her glasses in bag #7! :-)

    This may sound nuts but I find things I lost by hypnotizing myself. I relax and get very still and think about the last time I had the item that was lost. It works for me.

    Sadly everytime I've misplaced my glasses and was sure I knew where I'd them last.....I was absolutely wrong! Mine have turned up in some odd places. Dropped to the floor when I missed the nightstand, laundry hamper with post-shower towels once. The worst is that they only have to be set down......I've lost them on top of the microwave because I never thought of looking there. Just not a usual place to take them off. Maybe if she tries to backtrack and lets go of the idea she had them in the bathroom. Might also help to remember what she was doing in the bath.....shower? teeth? make-up? Sometimes a clue pops up in your mind. I guess I'd do the garbage too as a last resort, but I think I'd sit back, have a tea or coffee, watch something silly on TV and then try again first......
    Good luck. You must be having a terribly frustrating day. Hope you're able to post that you've found them real soon!
