Mom, you should have named me Gretel

I had a dentist appt. this morning. The kids had theirs on Monday. I had to take everyone and poor Libby was total grump. So this morning I show up and the receptionist says "I think you left this here." and yes. it was Libby's milk cup. They had found it this morning.

I found my business cards. Well I should say Kristy found them. They were in her suitcase. My only excuse is that we both had navy blue luggage and we put them in the same corner of our hotel room.

I leave things places. Mom makes a box for me every once in a while of all the stuff we've strung around her house and forgotten. I go through life leaving trails. Not bread crumbs of course, that would be a waste of good bread, but stuff.

So now I can add to all the places I've left things: someone else's luggage and the dentist's office. oh and an airplane! we can't forget the sketchbook fiasco. joy.

I got a chuckle out of this one! Glad you found your cards.

Did you happen to find my cell phone charger? I've looked everywhere else, so obviously, as GSAB's (Gretels Separated At Birth) you may be in possession of it. Doesn't matter that we've never met in person - I could still find a way to lose something at your house, I think. :) Sorry about the dentist - congrats on the solved mysteries!
