Lunch in the Midway City

July 10th, 2022 at 02:31 pm

Per usual, I had a wonderful day with BFF, except for one major glitch. While she was shopping, and I was sitting out in the sun, I peeked into my purse and noticed that one of my wallets was not there. I carry two -- one with cash and credit cards -- and loyalty cards -- and the other with my drivers license, insurance cards, library card, transit card, vaccination cards, and probably other things I'm not thinking of. It was the second wallet that was missing, and I was in a panic. I tried to retrace my steps, and I was afraid it might have been lifted when I was at a baseball game. Plus, I was quite worried that I had to drive home without my license on a day that involved heavy traffic.

I was so worried, the day was spoiled, and we agreed to cut it a bit short -- not too bad, probably only about a half hour before we would have parted, anyway. I made the long drive home, long because traffic was TERRIBLE, and I was so impatient to be home and look for my wallet. When I finally got home, I found it in the bag of books I had brought home from the library the day before. Lessen learned. I will always put things back where they belong, especially important things like wallets!  But what a relief!

Aside from that, it was a lovely day. We ate lunch outside at a taco restaurant ($20). We shopped, but the only things I bought were sunscreen ($18 for two tubes), and a box of Clif bars on sale ($4), which I will take with me on the train. We found a bench in the shade and talked for a long time. When it was time to go home, I stopped at a gas station and topped up the tank, because the gas was $1 less per gallon than it is at home. ($23)

On Friday, in between the two baseball games, I went out to lunch with my son. He hardly ever wants to do this, so I jumped at the chance! We went to a Korean chicken restaurant and my lunch was $18.

Variables are up to 26% -- not bad, for what feels like a lot of indulgence (happy indulgence!)

    What a relief you found it! I've done that before and oh the panic. Now I am really careful to always put my credit cards back in my wallet after every use and double check that I have my wallet and phone.

    Glad you found the missing item.

    So glad you've found it. I've done the same thing and then kicked myself about not putting things back. But glad you had it and it wasn't stolen.

    We're all in agreement, aren't we? Often I'll take my credit card out near by laptop when I'm shopping online, only to send myself into a panic later when I'm out without it. We went to the Brewers' game Friday night where you could only have a tiny bag that wouldn't fit my wallet. I ended up switching purses three times over the weekend. Glad you found it! Sounds like a great weekend.
