Lost and Found


We have decided that I am a bit of a spazz when I am away from home. (we being Steve) I think when I am away I get so excited that I lose my head(and my stuff) This trip it was almost comical. It was so bad that I found myself looking around for "Candid Camera" to see if they were playing a trick on me (to the youngsters that means I thought I was getting punked) I lost my camera....left it in a hotel we had walked through to admire the lobby.And of course I didn't realize it until we were 6 blocks away. So my sweet hubby ran all the way back and returned with my camera(and my scarf?) Then I left my flip video at the farmers market when I bought my pear. Didn't realize that for a few hours,but we stopped back by and they sweetly had held it for me. I lost my muni tickets, and my mittens. Then I was supposed to carry Ashlyns camera and mittens in my purse only to realize when we got to Sausalito they were not there. I was kinda sure I had left them on her bed and had never put them in my bag, but inside I was panicking. I wasn't feeling too confident in myself.Thankfully they were right where we left them. After all these incidents no one asked me to hold anything else? But guess what? Steve came home without his glasses!! So he called the hotel and yes they were left in the room? They would be happy to ship them home for us. Along with Chads I Pod that was also left behind?So after all that ribbing about Mom......Turns out we are a family of spazzes. So I have a great idea. Next trip we are all going to wear those fabulous 80's fanny packs.I probably still have one of these delightful little numbers.

And my sweet DIL who is just the cutest little fashion bug would probably show up with Travis looking adorable like this.I am so grateful for everyones honesty and that the Lord was watching out for me. I sure needed it...

Seriously, it is an age-thing, sorry! I never used to forget ANYTHING, I had a wonderful memory, knew the date and time of every function that every person in the family had to be to, never forgot to pay a bill, never forgot anyone's birthday, etc. Now, I'm lucky to remember to get up each morning. You are so blessed to have people around you to help you get through these trying times. But truly the excitement of a very fun trip doesn't help when you're trying to keep your wits about you, so hang in there. I'm so glad you had such a great time, every vacation needs a few little "incidents" to make it memorable.

Teddy Bear took a fanny pack with her to Coachella last year~! I guess they are staging a come back. But she would look like Ashlyn wearing one. I look like a really big spare tire has sprouted on my body when I wear one. Your guardian angel must be one busy dude though. I always think of that silly car commercial, I think it was, with the little cupid type angels guarding the car and keeping it safe.

I am a TOTAL forgetful spaz. I leave things everywhere I go and Raleigh secretly picks them up and puts them in his pocket. Then 2 hours later, I remember and I start swearing and looking all over for the thing and he calmly pulls it out of his pocket. Don't you apologize for one minute about "the counter." You are not the chef. It is not your fault that my family consists of 4 of the pickiest eaters on the Planet. Last night at the restaurant, my mom nearly curled up in a ball and started rocking back and forth because the waitress told her they only had Pepsi products and she couldn't have a Diet Coke. Good Times.

Karen...You ARE our sister...we will defend you til the end! That is what us Littles do! I did not know that you had recommended the Counter...I thought mom heard about it on Operah...who I am not a fan of to begin with. Let me clarify...the food was good...the waiters...a little feminine...the bun just a tad dry...but I loved the oninion rings, fries and custome avocado and spicy peppers! It was worth my money! :)
