After getting our bags adjusted to the right weight and such, I went to check in and discovered I'd left my wallet at home in my truck from the errands. I had my passport, boarding docs, cash... everything but the back up credit cards and my drivers license. I called my friend Sarah and she saved my butt and brought my wallet to me. I can't believe I did that. It's been a long time since I felt that dumb.
The last time on a trip that I can recall was with high school group and I stepped out of a car to help another vehicle in our caravan on the side of the freeway and had an envelope with 2 grand in it fall out of the car. It was in between my legs and I didn't notice it was gone until we stopped for dinner. I had to go back and find the envelope while the rest of our group ate dinner. Oh my was that stressful.
Anyway-- a crazy start followed by a bit of a crazy plane flight followed by a crazy taxi ride to our hotel in Galveston followed by a nice seafood dinner and we're off. We board the boat tomorrow for a great week in the Caribbean. WOOO HOOOO!!.
Hopefully my brain will be more functional with more than 2 hours sleep and the "oops I left it" scenarios are all done.
Thank God for grandparents staying with the dog and kids. Thank God for friends who are willing to help a brother in need. I really can't do life alone. I'm too stupid and needy.
