The next day I was cleaning my closet and went to put my temple bag (maybe someone is trying to tell me something) up and what was in the pocket but by wallet! I literally yelled; I KNEW IT!! I knew the very next day I would find it!
A few days later I went to go grocery shopping. As I drove past the mail box I thought I wonder if my cards are hear yet? I get to the store. After getting a week’s worth of groceries I take my loaded cart to the check out. After she's finished ringing me up I swipe my card. She asked me to swipe it again, it didn't go through. My heart sunk. "Oh crap" I say! "Oh it didn't say it was denied, just that it didn't go through, why don’t you run in again" she kindly said. But I knew, I knew I'd canceled my card a few days earlier and swiping it again would do no good. I felt the heat in my face as it flushed with embarrassment. I thought of all my dairy and refrigerated foods and realized I didn't have time to explain everything so I simply said "my card is not going to work, can I leave my groceries here while I go get another one?" She asked if I was coming back and I vehemently assured her that I was! Extremely embarrassed I ran out to my car drove back home, grateful that we live less then3 miles away. I called Brent so he could meet me outside with his card. As I once again passed the mailbox I wondered how in the world I could have driven by them, thought...I wonder if my cards are here yet? and not put together the fact that if I am waiting for new cards, the old canceled ones in my wallet WONT WORK!!! Thankfully when I got back to the store all they had to do was scan a barcode on a receipt taped to my cart, rather then rescanning the entire cart of groceries.
A few days later my new debit card came in the mail. Only there was just a full size card. I had also ordered a mini key chain one as well. I use my mini ALL THE TIME! Way more often than my full size one. I love being able to just grab my keys and go. I wondered why it wasn't with the full size one since in the past they have always come together. I called the bank to find out why. What I found out is they no longer offer the mini cards. I was devastated!
All this because my wallet was sitting in my temple bag for a month. Moral, go to the temple more. Clean my closet more often. Remember to empty out my temple bag when I get home. Honest, no exaggeration every time I go to the temple I find some “lost” item that I've been looking for for at least a month, usually months. The whole thing is really just frustrating. On the bright side, I was right, my wallet was just in my house and I still have my favorite wallet.
Now I have to go clean my house for visiting teacher and a presidency meeting tomorrow.
