What started out as a wonderful evening out with my three teenage daughters ended up being a nerve wracking experience. We went to Ross to look for a dress for Krishawanda. She tried on several and looked stunning in everything she put on. She did find one she really liked and it was within our price range (cheap) so along with a flowerpot, and a garden gadget we went to the checkout. I pulled my debit card from my wallet and swiped it, punched in my pin and THOUGHT I put the card back in my wallet. We then went to Chick-fil-a and got a tea. I almost put this amount on my card but between the 4 of us had enough to pay cash. We then went to Wal-Mart, where I always spend too much. We looked at movies, jewelry for the dress, little girl clothes, (I can't ever pass girls clothes up) and then got a few things we needed. (6 gallons of milk, 3 packs of cheese, 6 loaves of bread, 5 dozen eggs, and a few other things.) $263. I pulled out my wallet, no card. I rumbled in my purse, no card. I took everything out of my purse. No card. I start to panic. I know I used it at Ross. I sent Doreese back to the car. NO CARD. I paid with a check, and left. We searched everywhere. NO CARD!! I called Keith and had him cancel our cards. I checked my account and everything seems right. I pray I just dropped it or left it and no one has it. I am still a wreck over the whole thing. It's not like there is a lot of money in my account, but I need what is there. Maybe it won't keep me up tonight.


  1. That is so frustrating! It is so easy to not get the cards back in, especially with the chaos that goes into checking out with kids around. I'm so sorry you lost it and I hope that no one bothers with your account. I also know how quickly those Walmart purchases add up. 9 gallons of milk at our house along with 8 loaves of bread for starters gets our grocery bill off to a flying start each week. LOL I know you can relate. I can't pass up the little girl clothes and my youngest are boys! LOL Now I find it hard to pass up shoe shopping with the girls. LOL OK, I also get into trouble with books and movies...LOL I hope you got a good night sleep and that you feel better about things tonight. It is so easy to leave those cards places. Sometimes I think I need to attach them with a string into my wallet, then I wouldn't be able to leave them. LOL

  2. you didn't tell me you lost your card! along with not telling me you fixed burritos for dinner! ugh, I guess Jen replaces me as the favorite daughter when she's around... :)
