Here is what happened: I finally decided to get off my rear end and go to the gym. The kids were with their favorite babysitter, I uploaded my favorite workout songs to my ipod, put on my super cute new workout outfit and headed to the gym. I had to leave my purse in the car because I was going to have lunch with myself afterwords and I obviously needed some money to do so. After parking, I shoved my cute new purse under the seat, locked the car and went inside. A little over an hour later, after a really nice workout (it was, and I'm not even lying) I saw this:
Sad. But, true. Someone broke the passenger window, opened the door and took my purse. I do blame myself for being just so stupid to think that my purse was safe, I'm also pretty mad at myself for thinking my purse was safe.
They had a maximum window of 15 minutes (between my gym arrival time, and when mall security left the note on my window), here is what they got:
- cute new purse (Target brand) value $24.99
- 2 year old green patent leather wallet from my sister (Nordstrom brand) $priceless
- $0.00 cash
- 4 credit cards (which they proceeded to use)
- drivers license
- ticket stub from the 2008 New Orleans Jazz Fest
- 5 colon bill (Costa Rican money, from my honeymoon in 1995)
- approx $100 in gift cards
What am I most upset about you ask? My green patent leather wallet (it was the perfect wallet!), and the gift card from Williams-Sonoma that I didn't get to spend on the cute little cake stand I was going to get. Oh well, I'll get over it some day.
Thanks for listening, and for being so understanding. I am going wallet shopping, I'll let you know what I find.
