|I do. And it crushes me.|
We got on the road about 11am. About half an hour later, I reached into my bag and realized my purse wasn’t there. I hadn’t checked the room. I took Emily out the the bathroom and when I returned Mom and Jeremiah and check the room and were ready to check out. I didn’t want to be untrusting and hold things up by doing it again. I called the hotel and sure enough they found it under one of the blankets. I remembered carefully laying it out on the bed with my other bags, and I’m not sure how it got covered up. I felt pretty irresponsible and also uncomfortable with arriving in Lawrence an hour later as we were already not exactly early. The moral of the story is you should always check the room if you feel like it and always look in the places where you didn’t put anything. However, I was very grateful I had realized my purse was gone before we were too far away to practically go back. I had reached in my bag for something completely different.
|And it did! Crazy. The wind pushed it up into the canoe and it only took up half of the windshield.|
It was a nice large room and we were all feeling kinda cold and crazy from being cooped up in the car for the last two days. Especially the dogs. We had a bit of trouble keeping them quiet. Emily had her first ride in an elevator which was a little comical. She was only slightly concerned, but kept look at me, waiting for instructions on what she was supposed to do about it.
