I was pissed
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.
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.
