anybody else having problems????

What a day I have had already today.
1. Lost my wallet while ava and I were playing at the park
2. Only realized my wallet was lost after having a ton of groceries rung up by the cashier at the grocery store
3.retraced my steps with a screaming, hungry and tired (almost) 2year old
4. came home to admit my loss to my husband.... he promptly went out to retrace my steps again
5. we both gave up looking and began to cancel cards...... i found out that i keep way too many cards for ava and I in my wallet
6. Realized that I had a message on my phone.........when did that get there????
7. Someone had found my wallet.... THANK YOU GOD and so sri went right out to pick it up
8. everything was still in there............i am so so so so so grateful
9. I am having a super hard time uploading pictures onto my blog
10. I have to finish up the changeroom curtains for NEw Horizons Thrift Shop.... and I seem to be running out of inspiration

is there anything as wonderful?

The moment I pull into the parking lot of my local thrift store my heart starts to race. I feel anxious and excited at the same time. Anxious (I'm kind of ashamed to admit) because I feel like people are snapping up the items of my dreams while I am in the parking lot getting ready to go in or even in the next aisle to me .... it must be an illness. But the excitement far outweighs anything else. The thrill of walking down a cluttered narrow little path and coming across the greatest tea towel or adorable gravy boat ..... I really do promise pictures will come eventually.... is enough to make even the worst day turn into a basket of delights.
I am really excited about the re-opening of the New Horizons Thirft Shop . I have been asked to make the curtains for the changeroom... I was thinking about piecing together jeans and sweatshirts in sort of like a quilt but I'm not really sure that it is a feasible idea... I should really figure that out since I have to have them done for MOnday.
Today is going to be a day of wiping noses, changing bums and breaking up toddler disputes.... I will hold close to me the feeling of treasure hunting in hopes it gets me through the day, or at least until Sri gets home (a flair for the dramatic I would say)
