Can I start today over?

1) I got up this morning to find that Valkyrie had peed on the bedroom floor again. Annoying, but not a huge deal.

2) My computer rebooted overnight (security update) and somehow lost all knowledge of my keyboard. I thought I could go into the Control Panel and use that to download drivers (since I can't Web browse), but the computer doesn't even recognize that the keyboard is there. I'm going to try downloading drivers at work, then taking them home to install them. If that doesn't work, well, I wanted a new keyboard anyway!

3) I have lost my keys. I know I had them yesterday about 5 when I checked my mail. I have no idea what happened to them after that. I spent about a half-hour this morning, tearing my apartment apart looking for them. They aren't any of the places I tend to put them (coffee table, end of the futon, by my computer). They aren't in my pants pockets. I crawled around on the floor, thinking they could have fallen off something. I checked the bathroom counter. I checked on my dresser. (Though now that I think about it, I didn't check the headboard of my bed. Not sure why they would be there.)

I managed to find my spare apartment key and Jeep key, but the missing keys are the only one with a mailbox key.

Improvement

I found my keys. They had fallen under the futon far enough back that I couldn't see them at a quick glance.

I got a new keyboard. It works very well. :)
