After dinner we stopped at FYE music store because I wanted to pick up Alan a new DVD Rack. I can't believe we filled one up already. Well as I was walking into the store I saw something on the ground it was a man's wallet with a $20 bill that just flew out of the wallet and started to blow away. I quickly picked up the wallet and then ran after the $20 bill and caught it. There had to be about 500 in cash in that wallet....looked like someone just got paid along with credit cards and his bank cards and his monthly train ticket for the Long Island Rail Road to Manhattan. Well....of course I didn't keep it and walk away I could never do that to someone I know what it's like to lose a wallet. Did that at Universal Studios in FL I left my whole pocketbook on the Dr. Suess ride thankfully someone turned it in and every penny was there....well anyways I went into the store and asked if anyone matching the the name on the drivers license was in the store. The manager actually said he had just left....which is when he dropped his wallet. I tried calling information to see if there was a phone number for this guy but no luck...hint...always put your phone number in your wallet just in case. Well I really didn't want to take the responsibility for the wallet so the manager said she would put it in the safe since maybe he would start to backtrack when he realized he lost it. Then just as I was leaving the store I saw a guy pull up quite quickly and erractically so I asked him if his name was Joseph and he said yes. I said I found your wallet in the street. He said thanks and just walked into the store. My mom was with me and she was even a little surprised that he wasn't just a little more grateful and frankly I guess I was too but I guess you don't always get the responses you expect. I am just glad I did the right thing and turned it in. I know that there is alot of people who wouldn't do that.
Friday, I woke up early took David and Brittany to school and then went out to breakfast at IHOP with Alan my mom and Kaylee. I also spent the day cleaning and then Alan and I went up to school to meet with Brittany's kindergarten teacher to see how she is doing so far. Brittany is still struggling with her writing but she will move on to 1st grade next fall. She just may need to be pulled out for extra help. Not the worst thing in the world. Friday night I went and did some food shopping.
Saturday Alan took David and a couple of his friends out bowling for his birthday and then out to Friendly's. Then when they came back to the house I was just finishing up doing some cleaning and had dinner baking in the oven. I had my parents, sisters, niece and a friend over for dinner. I made a turkey. Later on we had a carvel ice-cream cake. Alan got a few gift certificates and David got an Apple Ipod mini. He really liked it alot. It holds 1000 songs. I have to show him how to download music now. He also got a video game and a gift certificate for best buy and blockbuster. I say he made out pretty well. They both did.
Yesterday I spent the day just relaxing. It was crummy weather so we stayed in. Alan had to work in the store. After he closed the store he went out to his friends house to watch Wrestlemania. His friends even got him a birthday cake and a gift certificate to best buy. He was surprised and happy that they did that for him.
Well guess that's about it. Today I am just doing the regular school and back thing and catching up on some much needed laundry. Hugs!!
