Somewhere between a Wal-mart trip Wednesday afternoon and going to work Thursday morning I seem to have lost about $90 and my cellphone.

First I only realized the money was gone. And that totally stinks. I thought I was really on the ball getting out money early for the sitter. Uugh. So that will cost me double this week.

Then I realized I haven’t seen my phone either. I keep both in the front of my purse. My purse which I realized was left open in my unlocked car, parked OUTSIDE of my garage all night. Terrific idea, I know. I had groceries and Ella to bring in Wednesday night and once inside and distracted by a hungry baby, dinner to make and dishes to do, I never returned to bring my purse in. And recently my husband decided to store a pile of wood on my side of the garage, so until he gets around to that, I’m parking outside. Bad idea, it turns out.

It’s entirely possible this stuff fell out of my purse. If I bend over just so and the zipper’s undone I have dropped a few things out from time to time. But, how could I not notice my phone and a big wad of cash falling?

I also hate to say it, but part of me wonders if the neighborhood boys that have opened our gate, come in our yard and egged our home (3 times), and also thrown rocks in our yard could have possibly spotted the stuff and taken it?

That’s an awful thought. I just am feeling helpless without my phone. I would call my friend and talk to her. But I don’t know her number. It’s stored in my phone. Uuggh.

OK, just had to vent. Will try moving on with my life now.

    Did you find your phone yet? What a huge bummer!

    So sorry to hear about your cash and phone. It’s a lot of money and the phone is such a hassle to replace (particularly all the numbers). More than that, I know it’s not a great feeling to consider yourself violated like that. Put up signs in the neighborhood offering a reward for info. Naughty kids will usually tell on one another for a reward.
