If losing my car keys wasn’t enough . . get this!
I left Chad’s Saturday morning. I got as far as Joplin and Nicole called . . .”Do you still have our garage door opener?” Yes! Dang it! I told her to buy a new one and I’d pay her back and I’d keep one in my car because they’re always one short when I’m there. I should have asked the garage door guy to program the built in remote in my car. I’ve tried it and can’t get it to work.
It gets worse . .
I got to the hotel yesterday afternoon, took my first load of stuff in . . the knitting bag, my clothes for today in a tote bag. Went back to the car, got the cooler, my makeup bag and toiletries. I was walking across the parking lot and it hit me . . I didn’t see my computer bag. I stopped and was just standing there thinking “I didn’t see my computer bag in the car!” I took the bags I was carrying up to the room and went back to the car to search. Just when I got to the car, Nicole called and said “Guess what you left here!” I said “Please don’t say my computer!” Yes . . my computer and in the bag was my iPad mini, my little lamp I use when knitting in bad lighting, and worst of all — Ann Budd’s book, Knitter’s Handy Book of Top Down Sweaters that I need for Suzanne Bryan’s It Takes a Guild Knit Along. I’ve put off watching her videos or doing anything with her knit along because I just didn’t have much time to myself and I was super busy there. So, I was looking so forward to getting home and getting caught up with Suzanne’s project.
When I told Vince that I had left it all there, he got my last computer out and worked on it for me. He told me to order a new book but I wasn’t going to do it, then this morning . . I said . . why not? I really want to do this project. I am not scheduled to go back to MO til February. Chad, Nicole and Addie will see my uncle this coming week and then I’ll see him in December so I thought about getting Chad to take the computer bag to my uncle and then he could bring it home and I could get it when I see him but if something happens and I end up not going to Louisiana in December, who knows when I’ll get back there so . . I’m using my old computer and have a new book arriving Tuesday.
I thought my full size iPad, its charger and my phone charger were in the computer bag but then I remembered I had stuck them in my knitting bag. Thank goodness!
I tried to write a blog post on the iPad and couldn’t get it to work. I tried with the phone and couldn’t get it to work. I went down to the hotel business center and couldn’t get it to work. I think it’s because I’ve beefed up the security settings on the blog (I didn’t do it but paid someone to do it) and the wifi in the hotel was not secure so . . I couldn’t do anything with the blog. That explains why I’ve been so quiet . . and so disappointed in myself for having left that bag there!
