My no good, terrible, rotten day

My husband and I switched cars over the weekend while I was out of town. I noticed this morning when I got in my car that my driver's door wasn't all the way shut nor was it locked. I was a bit peeved but went on my way. When I got home I decided to get started on some of my homework for international business and remembered that I had left my school bag in my car. Since school started, I have never left my tote bag in my car but did this past week because I went to the grocery store before class and had a few bags to carry in, plus my purse, and realized that my tote bag would be just fine in my car until I needed it...because I always LOCK my car.

I was horrified to go to my car and find my tote bag missing. First of all, it was a terribly cute black and white tote bag. Secondly, it contained my international business text book (which I need for homework), my notebook (which contained all the research and notes I took for my group project due in 2 weeks), a jump drive (containing past homework assignments but more importantly, my resume and cover letters) and two calculators. I was in denial at first and ransacked the house looking for it but I am POSITIVE it was in my car when I left the house on Saturday. My husband didn't use my car until yesterday and today I found it unlocked. So it either got stolen out of my car in our driveway last night or when Joe took the dogs out on a hike yesterday.

I just returned from filing a report at the police station. No, it's really not that valuable but I would like my stuff back if it is recovered. And then there's what to do with just a couple weeks left in school and no textbook...I still have assignments to do. Thankfully, the book I need for my 40 page paper is in the house safe and sound. So, yes, I am not having a good day...and my husband feels terrible.

:( That stinks! Have you emailed the professor? I wonder whether he or she might have a textbook they could loan you.

I emailed my teacher first thing and he just let me know he had a book I could borrow...so thankful!!

That really blows! I would be ticked for sure. Sorry that happened to you guys.

Oh, no! I am so sorry -- it makes me sick just thinking of the research for the group project!!

That really is a no good, terrible, rotten day. I feel just as badly for Joe as I do for you.
