Have you ever...

Dug out an old purse that you haven't used in years and found money inside? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ I just did that and found an old 50 DOLLAR BILL jammed down inside. I can't tell you the last time I carried a 50 in a purse. Lets just say you are much more likely to walk away with a few singles if you steal my wallet. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- So you ask, what I am I going to do with it? Back to school shopping for S3 without me saying "NO! you CANNOT get that, it is ridiculously overpriced!" He is going to get the backpack that he has been drooling over...the one that WILL last him all 4 years of high school.....which he starts on Thursday. He is there till 2 today for his orientation. The school is so large that it is divided into 4 "neighborhoods" and you spend your entire 4 years in your wing of the school, except for the amazing performing arts center and outstanding field house. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Am I sad? A little. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Am I excited for him? Absolutely. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Do I worry about him? Actually, not too much, he has a good head on his shoulders and for the most part, his brothers have been very good role models. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- So, with the money don't have to spare out of the checkbook, I may have to get myself a little manicure. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 50 bucks....yeahhhhhhhh.

Its like Christmas isn't it!?!?! The other day I stuck my hand into a pair of pants I was wearing ( I pair I just recently was able to fit back into) and found a 20. It was like being in Vegas!

I remember when I was first married and we would go to the laundermat. I was always digging in coat pockets looking for coins and every once in awhile I would hit the jackpot and find a twenty...
A fifty!
You are magic.

Great find! Years ago, I almost gave a wallet to Goodwill with a $20 bill in it.
