    Not until I got home did I notice/realize that my wallet was missing.


    I would choose 'realize', but does 'notice' also work, if it's not better than 'realize' ?

    Re: notice/realize

    As far as I am concerned, they are both perfectly possible and acceptable. Note that in BrE, it would be "realise".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
