May 31st, 2014 10:00PM-11:40PM

For those that have been reading this blog awhile it will come to no shock to you that tonight I had a crisis involving me losing my wallet. This blog, entitled December 1, 2006 6:30PM-8:30PM was the first time a lost wallet story appeared on the blog. 

A few months ago Brooke and I were shopping at Kohl's when I realized I couldn't find my wallet. After tracing back my steps and then tearing apart the car I still couldn't find it. Just as I was about to really start freaking out the driver in the car parked next to me pulled out of their parking spot and Brooke sees my wallet in the center of the parking spot next to me.......this is a typical lost wallet story.

So tonight, we went to a great dinner in Camarillo with John and Larry. When I got into the restaurant I announced to them all that someone else needed to pay because I had left my wallet in the car. So as I said, we had dinner and then David and I walked across the parking lot and we went to Target and the Sports Authority before he walked me back to my car and then went on to his truck. Then we drove to the hotel in Oxnard.....

When David pulled in the parking lot he noticed that all my car doors and the trunk were opened. This was because I was FREAKING out. I couldn't find my wallet even though I had used it hours before when checking Tyler in at a hotel in Agoura Hills. Worse than the wallet the bag I had my clothes in and my laptop in was gone. After tearing apart the car looking for the wallet I came to the conclusion that all had been stolen. David (always with a cool head) suggested that I call the other hotel-so I pinged Tyler and he checked with the front desk-No wallet. Tyler stated via text that he didn't see me put a bag in the car earlier so I decided to call James and ask him to go to my house and double check to make sure I didn't leave my bag there (I knew that I hadn't-I remember putting it in the car). 

Tick Tock Tick Tock (James is headed to our house-pretty fast too) So James calls me back and tells me that my bag is still at home......thank God!!!!  So what in the world then happened to the wallet? Did somebody really steal or am I just not looking hard enough?

I decide that I need to go home since I have no clothes for the Go-Live in the morning. I get in the car and head home......I decide to call the restaurant (The wallet should not be there remember I told everyone when I got there that I had left it in the car). So the hostess answers and I say I was there a couple of hours ago and I lost my small brown wallet and my name is Kim Thomas. She tells me that they have it!!!! WOW, how could that be? So I head back and when I get there she brings this giant wallet out that was clearly not mine. They apologize and I leave......while leaving I decide to drive by the parking space where I was parked and there it is sitting there all lonely on the ground......honestly I don't know how this happens to me and how I can be so lucky all at the same time. 

So I drove home from Oxnard and I think I broke a record....door to door it was under an hour. I hope my morning drive back is quick too. This story is so pathetic and I have come to the conclusion that sometimes I create crisis.

Spring Concert 2014

Sydney and Liz did great in their Spring Concert. She has been singing the songs for weeks around the house and she was great up on stage singing with her class. I couldn't have been more proud of them.

Bye Bye 22

Happy 23rd birthday!!!!! I love you, James!!!!

Sydney's First Jr Olympics

This was such an awesome event! I am so sorry that I haven't come before to see Joshua participate. I gotta say that I am so proud of my sister rubbing this-just an exceptional job all the way around.

Sydney did the 30 yard dash, hula hoop, pass and catch and the mousetrap. She tied for the win with Elizabeth on Hula-hoop and Joey on Mousetrap. Fun day!

As Seen At Matt and Kim's

I so love this sign!!!!

How Has Jane Not Blogged This?

A few weeks ago Jane posted this blog "How has Kim not blogged this" so I have the same question on a different topic. Also, is it true or a rumor? I suppose one quick Google search would tell me. 

Incidentally, I did not blog about the Oprah Chai because I (1) I am offended by it (2) I will NEVER order it (3) If by some chance it replaces the normal Starbucks chai, I will finally quit Starbucks.

The Thomas Family Goes To The Ball

MJM's Disney costume party has been being planned for almost year. When it first came up I doubted it would happen but as time went on and preparation began we ended up deciding on Cinderella and Prince Charming. Sydney knew from the get go she would be Pocahontas (Still don't know why) and Brooke went as Rapunzel. 

Laura did virtually everybody's hair-and did a fabulous job on mine. Costumes were great, food was good, guests were fun- there was a photo booth and the girls absolutely loved that! I loved the party and I can't wait to be Cinderella again ;)

Sydney's "Signature" Move

Everytime she comes in after batting she throws her helmet in the air. I love it!

17 Years Ago Today........

I am really not a fan of odd numbers....we did get married in odd year (97) but what is remarkable about 17? We had really good 15 and 16 year anniversary's but today (17) was underwhelming.

Rachel was going to be here this weekend so we didn't make any plans to do anything or go anywhere.

I went to Costco in the morning and spend $495.00 on virtual nothing since we haven't been to Costco in almost two months. During the day David and the kids went swimming, I stayed in the house and did some cleaning. 

I made the decision to take the kids to dinner-that was an error, Sydney whined through half the meal, Brooke gloated that she wasn't whining through the same 1/2. I had a drink, a skinny drink that was 122 calories-that seemed appropriate. We went to Claimjumper-odd choice and the food was just ok. 

When we got home the girls wanted to watch a movie and insisted on something called the Swan's dumb, not even Disney and yet here we watch.....David is snoring 5 feet away. 

Next year we are going away question about that. Here it is, documented proof of my commitment that #18 will be great!

I love you, DT! Proof that we had some fun during the last year:

PS. Some Blog Trivia:  In 2009, 10 people left me Happy Anniversary comments on the blog. In 2013, that number had dropped to 4

Passing Time At California Adventure

Last week at California Adventure it was highly entertaining watching the janitors try to fish a Samsung phone out of the water. There were several 100 people watching as six janitors tried to get the phone out of Paradise Bay.

Watching Number 6

I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed watching this girl play first base on Saturday. She was playing first base at Hamilton Park and on the 2nd diamond and it reminded me of when I was on the Sharks playing softball on the same base, same field, same park and with the same number. So proud of this girl!
