Where oh where is my battery charger; Nikon D80

It seems as if my Nikon D80’s battery charger has gone missing.

Nikon D80

A few weeks ago, I noticed that my Nikons battery was running low, when I went to its usual spot (that I keep the charger) it was gone.

Countless searches have been done, and I still haven’t found my Nikon D80 battery charger.

Autumn is my favorite season, and there’s tons of outdoor photos that I’m itching to shoot, but with a near dead battery I’ve been holding off.

I’ve ordered a charger from Amazon. You know what’s going to happen? By the time the new battery charger arrives to my house, my old charger will miraculously appear, and I have a sneaking suspicion that I’ll know where it’ll be found… in my daughter’s room. I’m not sure why I didn’t think of looking in her room earlier. I just thought about this a few moments ago.

You have to understand something…

My eight-year old daughter is very talented. She’s won awards for her artwork, and has already had some of it featured in local shows — so it’s not just mommy bias. I love art so naturally I’m thrilled. This girl churns out art pieces several times weekly —  like it’s not a big deal. She has lots of talent, and therefore I encourage her. It’s ‘her thing’.

So yeah… she’ll  take anything that’s not nailed down and incorporate it into one of her art projects. I have mixed feelings about this; I applaud her creativity but at the same time… this mom gets tired of looking for misplaced items. <sighs> It looks as though I’ll have to have another conversation with her about asking, before using items in her artistic creations.

I’m betting if I look in her room, the Nikon D80 battery charger will be gracing one of her art sculptures.

Updated to add…

Thus far, my mommy’s intuition hasn’t failed. I looked in my daughters room and found the Nikon D80 battery charger buried under her pipe cleaners and colored papers.

We were on the third day of our recent trip and Karen told me she couldn’t find her battery charger. When she told me where she had stored it, I had a sinking feeling. I had gone through that drawer and, not recognizing the charger, I assumed it was for something else that we no longer take with us and took it back into the house. I didn’t throw it away, but it was several hundred miles away and Karen had several hundred pictures yet to take on the trip, if she could get her battery charged.

Our first destination after we set up camp the next day was a camera shop in Colorado Springs. Fortunately, they had a multi-charger that could be used for her battery.

Boy, was I relieved! 😉

Hi Opal.
It’s a common situation when you lose something, orders a new thing and then miraculously find the previous one)) It happened to me as well)


Hiya! Glad you found it! When I saw your email about your daughter I had to chuckle! She’s so sweet!
