Sad Day

For the past few months, I have been saving our change in a bucket to cash out to buy Christmas presents. Today, the bucket was full and I was so excited to take it to coin star and buy some gifts. I got to the store and the coin star was out of order! Since the only other coin star I knew of was about 7 miles up the road, I was pretty upset and Kennedy was sad that she had to get back in her car seat so soon. I set my change on the trunk and put Kennedy in her seat SCREAMING her lungs out. I remember thinking to myself "It sure would be stupid of me to leave the change on the trunk, but I won't do that." We drive to the next store, get out of the car, and the money bucket is no where to be found! I felt sick to my stomach at that point, but I still had hope that someone had found my money and turned it in. Needless to say, I have driven up and down the streets, asked lost and found and walked around the wal mart parking lot with no luck at all. I don't know exactly how much money was in there, but I am guessing it was around $40.00 or more. I am so sad right now. All I can do is feel sorry for myself, even though I know it won't bring my money back. But honestly, it was almost all we had budgeted this year for Christmas. Kennedy will be fine since the whole family seems to be buying for her, but just so you all know, there will be no Webb family Christmas cards sent this year. I hate that this happened today, but I guess it happened for a reason...right?

That's such a bummer and I can feel your frustration. Hopefully things will work out in the end. To answer your question..yes we are going to Cali for Christmas. We had asked the kids if they wanted to stay here this year...but they both said NOOOO! The funny thing is that the thing they wanted to do most was spend Christmas Eve with your dad and brothers....they said that was their favorite part! I think it is funny, but that is what they are used to! I hope your Christmas turns out well!

WHAT A BUMMER! It is more than a bummer, I am so so so sorry. Maybe you can do your christmas cards digitally this year? Stuff like this has happened to me before, and the outcome actually turned out better than I thought. Maybe not immediately, but it all turned out okay. I know you don't want to hear that right now, so you are allowed to be sad for a while! :)
