Doesn’t it always work, that you have to open your wallet for unexpected expenses at the WORST time ever??!! This month we’ve each had traffic tickets (the dumb ones that you think, SERIOUSLY!?!?), medical bills for an emergency room visit for Addie (that turned out well, thank goodness!), and this weekend….replacing my makeup bag…
Now any girl reading this KNOWS that replacing your makeup bag is painful! I don’t even want to add the cost up…the designer bag itself (which was a gift), the amazing brushes (that were a gift), and the priceless collection of makeup inside that had been carefully collected and now represented MY FACE….oh it is just so sad…I waited an entire week (looking like a walking zombie and attending meetings wearing sunglasses, but finally bit the bullet this past Sunday and replaced only the essentials.
For the back story…The bag is normally in my car (as it’s the ONLY place I actually have 5 minutes to put my face on, and the only time I’m going somewhere that someone might care what I look like – or that I would be mortified if I saw someone without my face!) But somehow between Saturday night and Monday morning (although the car was never driven off our driveway) the bag disappeared. Both my husband and I are completely stumped and have searched everywhere…still totally disbelieving that it could have been taken from the car, but also knowing that there aren’t many places it could hide in our house and we both remember it being in the car…..so sad…..guess it’s Merry Christmas to me!
The only good that has come out of this, is that you now get a post on the replacement make-up!
