A little frustration.
A little LOT of help.
A little humor.
The Des Moines trip was fun. Not sure how PRODUCTIVE it was, but we had a darn good time while we were there.
The one thing I went for was a small gift for my husband (from the kids). Nothing huge, just a new thing we discovered and know he would love.
Upon arriving home??? every single item I got was in the bag EXCEPT for this!!!!!!! helloooooo……. 1:00 am, and I was NOT happy!!! Obviously it got lost in the shuffle at the check-out counter and did NOT get in my bag!!! now what to do??? I am certainly NOT going back to Des Moines, and there are none to be found locally, so……what does a person do, other than vent to all her “friends” on Facebook?? I did just that. :)
Mid morning today, I got a phone call from a friend of mine and former employee. Said she saw my post on Facebook and just HAPPENED to be going to Des Moines today!!! yeah!!! how completely nice was that??? She probably has it in her possession as I type. *crossing fingers* !! she has definitely saved the day!! thanks Shari.
How is that for an “opportunity” to do a kind and helpful deed??? however small or large, she saw it, and rather than to dismiss my “dilemma” for the day (like we are all inclined to do on occasion) she is taking care of it FOR me!!!
Lastly, some good ole Iowa humor for ya. The kids and I are always on the lookout for Lit-up neon signs with missing lighted letters. They are everywhere, but I think we caught the best one we have ever seen last night. Hopefully you have heard of the store “Big Lots”? I honestly think I am going to submit it to Jay Leno or something……this is too good to keep to myself. Jeff actually spotted it. Thanks to you too Jeff!!!
From the looks of the ugly and dirty snowbank in front, maybe Pig Lots is appropriate afterall. haha.
Enjoy your weekend, and if you are out shopping, check your bags before you head home…..or hope you have a good friend to help you out like I do.
