The day the wallet died!!

So this is a DC/MD/VA instead of Empire state blog but it all works!!  We drove down to VA to stay with Sarah and Mark on Friday and hit HORRIBLE traffic going down so we were both annoyed!  Get to the house and we just chillen out and BSed all night (really didn't go to bed until like 2am!!)  On Sat. morning Sarah, Shane, Paxton and I got in the Jeep and headed to Maryland!  We drove to Ft. Meade and checked out the PX and Class Six!! HEHE  We also found the building I am assuming will house my office! YAY!!  We then went off to check out the different areas around there.  We finally stopped for lunch in Laurel, MD at a Silver Diner.  Food was okay but nothing like OMG I have to have again!  So we head off to look at a few other areas (look at I mean drive through/by).  We finally head back to Ft. Belvoir and just as we are about to get to the gate I notice my wallet isn't in my purse!  We pull over and look EVERYWHERE in the car for it, it's NOT there :( UGH!  I had it at the diner because I had pulled stuff out of it to show Sarah but it's no where to be found at this point.  We call the diner and they say they haven't seen it but Shane doesn't trust that so we drop off Sarah and Paxton and we head back up there (45 min drive each way) to check ourselves and sure enough, it's NOT THERE! :(  I have NO ID at all (no drivers licence or military id) and all my bank cards and checks are gone :(  USAA was great and got everything taken care of.  As we drive back I keep thinking of what else was in my wallet.  My handsfree ear bud for my phone was in there, chapstick, pictures, business cards from people I've met through the years and a cool poem attached to a 2 dollar bill that I have carried since the day I graduated high school :(  I am SO SAD:(

We went through being "checked" out to get back on post but at least they did let me on!! LOL  Went back to Sarah's house and they ordered pizza which was Awesome!! hehe  Again, we stayed up until like 2 am (well Sarah and I did but Shane was sick in bed) talking! 

Sunday we got up and Sarah, Paxton and I headed to the Metro (after Shane went and had to pull out cash for me! LOL) to meet up with Jenn!  I have "known" Jenn for MANY years online but we haven't met in person!  It was GREAT!  She is such a Sweet lady and we just talked and talked and talked while we had lunch!  We walked around the mall a little bit and then headed back on the metro!  While on the way back we made plans with Shane and Mark (who went to a Tattoo convention while we shopped) to go to dinner and a movie!  We ended up at Red Robin for dinner and then to see Gulliver's Travels in 3D.  It wasn't that great of a movie and the 3D SUCKED!!  But it was just cool being out with Mark and Sarah!!

We headed home this morning and it was a uneventful trip home which is nice!  Now I just have to figure everything out on how to get my IDs!  I ordered my birth certificate last week because mine is missing and I know I'll need that to get my drivers license.  So once I get that, then I can go get my military ID! UGH!  I have to go through so much to get two little IDs but I can't do ANYTHING without them! 

It's been a crazy weekend but an enjoyable one none the least!!!  We always have such a good time when we hang out with Mark and Sarah and I can't wait to actually move in with them for awhile! YAY!!!
