Best laid plans!

Well I had the day all planned out. Sleep late (watched a movie really late last night); go eat at Macaroni Grill (long ways); and go see Jaws (since it is nearing the end of my stay). 

All was going well until I left my wallet at Macaroni Grill and didn’t realize it until I got back on the island. Of course, by then it was gone. Oh no!  No money. No cards. Yikes!  I called my debit cards and one credit card (thank goodness I only have one) and got them cancelled. 

A huge thunderstorm (along with very startling warnings on the radio) blew in. Again, impressive lightening. Resigned myself to whomever got my cash needed it more than me and started the planning. 

Disclaimer here…my friend Lisa has been “harassing” me for a long time to not carry my “important papers” in my wallet (social security card, my kid’s birth certificates, etc) but old habits are hard to break. So, of course, I had to call her and tell her she was right!  Ugh!  (On a sad note, her brother is going through some terrifying repercussions from back surgery…please include them in your prayers). 

If you’re a man and you’ve never had to go through changing your name on your drivers license and social security card, you will never understand the frustration. Let’s just say, there is a reason there is an armed guard at the social security office!  So I was already bracing myself for the ordeal. 

I figured I had been so blessed lately that it was only fitting that I have some strife. That’s where I was mentally when the call came…they found my wallet!!!

The storm passed, literally and figuratively, in that moment. 
And then I got a message from a dear friend I haven’t seen in a while and they are in town so I will see them tomorrow. I will still have to make a bank trip (can’t undo the cancellation) and go pick up my wallet, but all is well in Kay-Land tonight. 

Maybe my cash will still be there. But if not, then someone needed it more than I did. And I can live with that.

  1. I once found a wallet in the middle of the road. It had 200$ cash and the guys drivers license with his address on it. I returned it to him and he gave me 20 bucks.
