Unbelievable

It's been a busy week, mostly because I started going back to physical therapy for my knee which makes for longer days than I'm used to. Where am I going with this? I've had a bag of stuff to give to Goodwill for the whole week now, and I haven't been able to drop it off because they close at 5. So finally I gave up and left the bag outside the dumpster in case anyone wanted a new coffeemaker, grinder, etc.

...I woke up at 5:30 this morning and realized my social security card and some other things may have been in one of the old wallets I put in the bag. I don't carry around everything in my wallet, and I have so many that I use the old ones to hold things I don't need to keep with my (SS card, business cards, grocery store savings cards, etc). This one had the card slots on the outside, which were empty, and a zippered compartment, which was probably not. Of course the stuff was long gone. I know I can get a replacement and monitor my credit report but it was such a stupid thing to do. This is why those cleaning binges are bad.....

In other wallet news, I custom ordered a new wallet a few days ago from JennaLou's etsy shop (thanks to the recommendation from Teresa!) I also made another sale in my etsy shop which is awesome :). I also came across an interesting fact this week - 40 years of research show that grief intensifies and peaks around 5-7 months after someone's death. Which helps to explain what's been going on lately. Well, not so much explain as reassure me I'm still following the curve :) (Insert long discussion on distributions and statistics here. I had a stats class early this week so I'm a little stat-ed out)

And, speaking of unbelievable, check this out. How does she do it?!? Here's more of her work. Absolutely amazing.

Sorry to hear about your lost wallet innards. :( I don't keep all my stuff on me either. Come to think of it, I may need to replace my SS card, too...oy. On the other hand- very cute wallets she has there!
