I was pissed

Yesterday me and blee walked over to Brookline to meet a friend for coffee. At Starbucks, I'm sorry. I have a new unfortunate addiction to Pumpkin Spice Lattes that I must be strong against. At least it isn't the Gingerbread one because I can't possibly have any willpower against that evil drink.

I had dressed her in the cute little hobbit cape a family friend gave her for her birthday. But it got a little warm so I took it off and put it in the mesh grocery bag I had with me. I was using my new sling and I didn't have it adjusted quite right. You can tell in the picture if you notice how high up almost on my neck the shoulder is. On the way home I stopped at a bench to adjust and put the bag down. It wasn't until I was mostly home that I realized I didn't have the bag anymore. I walked as fast as I could without running with my baby in a sling. Praying the entire time. But sadly it wasn't to be because somebody had taken the bag and cape. What somebody would do with a baby sized cape is beyond me. Maybe put it on their yipee dog?

It gets worse. While I was recovering from the loss I last ditch went to the businesses in the area and asked if anything had been turned in. While I was doing that I realized my wallet was missing. After searching for it I raced home and canceled all my cards. It just wasn't a good day to me.

But then I got a website registration with a long comment. It was from the woman that found my wallet. She gave me her number to call and asked me to briefly describe it and then Jon picked it up on his way home from work.

And the cape can be remade. So really the only loss was a mesh produce bag. Which I liked a lot and they are kinda hard to find without buying them online, but I'll take it! I have my wallet back. I don't need to get a new driver's license.

so good to see you

I'm hoping for a good weekend. Better than Friday. The freakout really left me stressed and exhausted and pretty much useless. But today will be better. Hope it is a great day for my readers as well.

See you Monday.

OMG you poor thing! All that and now a damn addiction to pumpkin lattes to boot?! I'm so happy you got your wallet back! Just think somewhere, that cape has made some cute doggie owners day- err or there is a strange person wearing a very small cape.
Keep your chin up! ( I'm addicted to their Chai Lattes..)

Oh, yuck! I'm sorry that happened... I once had a purse stolen from the movie theater, but it was returned to me a few days later, sans 75 cents in change--the only cash I had on me at the time. I figured it was a small price to pay for getting my driver's license back! Having to cancel all your cards is a pain, tho.

Sorry to hear about your bad day but at least you got your wallet back. It's such a pain to deal with a lost wallet. Still doesn't make up for the other lost items but at least it's a little something. Here's to a much better rest of the weekend!

The new cards are on their way and the cape is being remade as we speak!

Yay for good people.

I may have to get a new string bag online and pay a lot for shipping. Overall not too bad though.

The weekend went really well.
