Somewhere out there
I feel incredibly blessed today. I woke up early to see Brian off on his limo ride into work. (I will blog about that tomorrow) Came back into the house, this was at 7:30 am to hear Anna talking and singing. I invited her to lay in bed with me and we laid there until 8:15 am. Noah woke up, the kids ate breakfast, I arranged childcare for the gym and then my sister (younger sister, Sarah, in Louisville) called to tell me that she found a used Fievel on Ebay and that she bought it for me. I couldn't believe she did such a wonderful thing! (well I can believe it, because she's that incredible!) When I came back from the gym, my dear friend Sara had e-mailed me. She found Fievel on-line, she wanted me to verify that this was in fact my Fievel before she bought it for me. THEN, I got an e-mail from Tracy, who actually has this very Fievel in her house and was more than happy to send it to me. These acts alone meant so much to me. And the comments on my blog, I swear I am blown away. I truly did not expect anyone to comment, it proves to me that I am surrounded by amazing, caring people.
Well, for those looking for a Fievel update, my brother in law got to the hotel late in the afternoon and drove to the dumpster and saw the dumpster was fenced in. He walked up to the locked gate and it was unlocked! He opened the dumpster to find HUNDREDS of white plastic garbage bags. It never occurred to me that everything would be in garbage bags! duh! So, he walked into the hotel, talked to an employee, and they checked out the lost and found. Minutes later, Mike (my bil) called Sarah and said "does Fievel have a red shirt, a belt, a scratched off eye and big floppy ears?" She said yes. He said "I got him." Can you freaking believe it?!!??! I get my Fievel back!!!!
Now my immediate reaction was, of course, pure happiness and disbelief, but my second emotion was "wtf? Why didn't they check the lost and found yesterday?" But, my sister pointed out that it wasn't in the lost and found. It could have been in one of the cleaning person's carts, it's could have been anywhere, but at the point of my calling, it wasn't there. Either way, before I know it, I'll have not one, but two Fievels!
Between that and being surrounded my such amazing friends and family, could life be any better?
