Hellidays - When Bad Holidays Happen To Good People

On Thanksgiving Day, 2003, My mother and I wanted to get a head start on Christmas shopping.  We had a cooked a great Thanksgiving dinner that day.  All of our family came to the house to eat and everything went relatively well.  After eating Thanksgiving dinner and cleaning up some we decided to head out.  Our first stop was to get gas and then to our neighborhood Wal-Mart which was unexpectedly crowded.  They had some great pre-Christmas items on sale and we had to get our hands on them.  We proceeded to go into Wal-Mart.  I don't carry a purse, so I had my day planner with me with all my holiday cash and bill money in it.  

Ok, so we are in Wal-mart shopping our butts off.  My mother and I had split up to go get different items before they sold out.   I had put my day planner in the top of the shopping cart (where a baby would sit).  After being in the store about an hour and a half, I head over to the McDonald’s in Wal-Mart to meet my mother.  I am walking along and adding in my head the dollar amount of my children's Christmas items.  I got about 10 feet from the McDonalds and glanced down to check on my wallet (day planner) and noticed it was gone!  I didn't immediately panic.  I was praying in the middle of shopping I had put it in the bottom of the cart, or maybe I had handed it to my mother prior to splitting up.  

I continue to walk toward McDonald’s and stop at the entrance.  My mom is waving me to come in.  I say "hold on I have to find my wallet".  I start my hunt and did not find it.  I yelled to my mother "momma did I give you my wallet to hold?".  She looks for it in her purse as well and comes up with nothing.  I am panicking at this time and my mom has moved next to me now.  I leave the cart to go back in the direction I came from thinking maybe I dropped it.  I find nothing.

I am crying hysterically "all my rent money and Christmas money was in there" I say.  Momma calls Wal-Mart security and they are no h
