Spent twenty minutes combing the house in vain for Dan's biggest and best Christmas present. Fought back a rising tide of panic as I ransacked every closet, peered under and behind every piece of furniture, checked the tops of kitchen cabinets, rooted around in the crawl space...finally found it (whew!) at the bottom a pile of other boxes that are waiting to go into the crawl space. Hidden in plain sight, as it were. Christmas is saved.
