The Universe vs Steven.
The Universe is against me, it conspires to make my life equal to one of those comedy skits, where a character, usually played by someone like Carol Burnett, has everything go wrong that can go wrong. I have blogged before that my life is like a Mr Bean episode.
Yesterday I received a call from the accountant doing my mom's taxes, it seems that I am missing some important documents, the government supposedly sent them but will not release the information to the accountant. I would have to jump through hoops to have them reissued and it could take months.
Last night I couldn't sleep, I was upset because I knew that I never received those letters. Mom generates a lot of paper work, to help make it easier for me, I keep a large folder and everything tax wise goes into that folder, I know that I wouldn't put them anywhere else. Still just in case, I pulled apart the house... then the car and still nothing, which is the result I expected. I called her old nursing home and they search but didn't receive anything either. I woke up at three this morning trying to find something that I knew wouldn't be there.
I decided to try one last idea, I remembered during the winter a bad wind that opened the mail box and blew some mail out. I went down to the road and looked in the wet muddy ditch, the snow had melted away and there were the letters plus some others! At some point they must have blown out of the box and the snow plow shoved them into the ditch. Further to my point of the universe being out to get me, all the letters were important, taxes, bank statements, investment statements, there were no letters asking me to buy a new phone or join some club I have no interest in or other junk mail.
Of all the letters to get lost, these are the ones that got lost. They have probably been there since the end of February or beginning of March buried under the snow, my only lucky part of this is they could have blown out into the fields or into the forest and be lost forever. Still ffffffk!

at least the letters were found. now onward to the accountant!
See, there's your positive: THEY WERE FOUND! Now, are they legible? Still, THEY WERE FOUND! Now do as Anne Marie says and get thee to the accountant.
At least you finally found them. Let them dry out and then iron them out with a warm iron and you'll be set.
Think of this as a bright blessing. You won't have to ask for the papers to be resent to you. If I were you I would also look into getting a better mailbox that won't blow open so easily.
You're a persistent little fella.
Once you dried them out, are they still legible? Or will you still have to get replacements? Bummer.
At least you did not end up with a turkey on your head.
So the letters were there? After you looked EVERYWHERE? Rats! I hate when that happens!
At least you found them and you will be able to use them. So now to see what else happens. You just know something will come up.
One thing though: your life is NOT boring.
I love that you find the absurd side of it all.
Lost then found. Win, win!
AM, been there took them! :)
Deedles, been there, took them, could read them! :)
Leanna, I put them on a heating grate and turned on the oil furnace, it a dry heat and dried them our in no time.
Jimmy, it's a gift... lol.
Debra, lucky for me, we can read them.
OL, with all the wild turkeys around, don't say that before you jinx me!
Sixpence, I would rather have a little boring please. :(
Win I guess, they could have been lost forever.
One of the hardship of the universe is it does not conspire but is indifferent
Dr Spo, it would be easier if it was indifferent instead of out to get me! It put my tax forms in a muddy ditch and never touched the junk mail! It's a conspiracy I tell you, a conspiracy!
