I am trying to figure out what word I am thinking about, but can't! So help me... It's a word that means you're doing something, but whatever you are doing is hidden....you're hiding what you're doing... any ideas what word I'm trying to think of?

Hello LilyoftheThorns!:-) Is it 'covert' or 'stealthy' or 'clandestine'!? If there is none among these, I’ll come back with others!:-)

I think that's getting closer to what we want, but I'm not sure if thats the right word, I'll have to check! You see, my brother is actually the one that wants to know...he can't figure it out, his friend can't, I can't, my dad can't! lol

occult, secret, covert, subterfuge, concealed, enigmatic, suspicious, on the downlow, misdirection, hidden, in secret, conspicuously, inconspicuous, misdirection, masked,... my brainban is now out of synonyms, can only hope by now (2 months later) you've found the right word.

You could be referring to covert, surreptitious, clandestine, illicit or furtive. I hope I got it. LOL!

You've got a lot of good words to choose from, how about adding conniving to that list. It may or may not fit, but it's just another to throw around!

Could the word be incognito? It means to hide or conceal something. I use it quite often when describing a person.

I think, like another person said, covert is the word your looking for.

The two that come to mind for me right away are: Secretive (done in secret - hidden) Clandestine (like a clandestine marriage = eloping)

furtive, stealthy, covert, surreptitious, undercover, or conceal are words that also come to my mind.
