Yesterday, I lost my wallet.
During the day, I locked my purse in my car trunk while I volunteered
as a guide at the Newport Harbor High School Home and Garden Tour.
The NHHS Tour was a fun part of the day.
the husband's study...

The homeowners describe their style as "Beachy Farmhouse."
We live in Newport Beach, Ca.
|Tabletop by Gatehouse, Costa Mesa|
Love the reclaimed wood floors and stairs.
Love the LOVE.
I would cover up "23" with my wine glass.

|Nice little desk in the guest room|
The next homeowner describes her style as "European Beach Farmhouse."

Pretty teen-aged girl's room.
Good design with relatively inexpensive ceramic and glass tiles.
Happy office in an unattached guest house.
Outdoor dining room
Back to my wallet. The last place I recalled using it was at J. Crew for these...
but they said they did not have it.
(on sale $14.99)
Note: If you are in a hurry, skip the next paragraph.
So, a massive car cleaning ensued followed by house cleaning, praying,
another car inspection, going through trash. Depression. Listing credit cards
and making an appointment online to get a new driver's license.
Reviewing checking and Amex accounts online--no activity. Self loathing.
Teen-aged son and buddies belt out "So, you had a bad day, you're takin' one down..."
Crack a smile. Start reading about identity theft protection on the internet.
Talk to sweet, out-of-town husband. Says he'll buy me a new wallet.
Go to bed and vow to make all the cancellation calls in the am.
Next morning. Call J. Crew one more time. You sure you don't have my Burberry wallet?
"Oh yeah, it's here in the right hand drawer." Huh?
Moral of the story: Photo copy all the contents of your wallet and
call the last place you think you left something--twice.
Oh happy day!
