Soooo, on Saturday I had a huge moving/yard sale. As most of you, my dear friends know, I was able to get approved to move into a special apartment complex for disabled folks. I'm very excited about the move, but was really excited after the yard sale. I did great....I mean really good!
I was so looking forward to being able to buy some things for my new little place....maybe a new table to paint and decorate.....some new "shabby chic" bedroom accessories...hey, maybe even new bathroom stuff...cause I don't know about you folks....but, I like having a pretty place to go...lol
So, Sunday afternoon, I went to Wal-Mart...yep....it was crazy for me to go there. You see, in my very small hometown of Waycross, Georgia....there are only 2 things folks do on a Sunday in Waycross.....go to church or go to Wal-Mart....well, maybe 3 if there is a big game on.
So, I go in and I wander around looking at all the housewares and home goods...thinking of what I might buy, then finally go over to groceries and pick up the few things I need. While going up and down the isles, I notice two young men pushing a buggy. I don't think anything about it until I get to check out, and notice that they are at another checkout right beside me....and all of a sudden I think, where is the buggy they had been pushing? So, I check out and head to my car which is parked at the very end of an isle....way in the boondocks.
As I turn to cross over to get to my car, they approach me, and say something...but, since I don't speak Spanish I don't understand....one pushes me down...other grabs my purse...and run!!! ANYWAY.....a witness sees me, comes over calls 911...another runs into store....police come....I'm okay...as I had my phone, and keys in my vest pockets. So, after all the crying and talking to the police....I started laughing out loud......the officer looks at me like I'm crazy....I finally stop laughing and tell him.....they might have got all my cash from yard sale...but I have no credit cards..only a debit.....my credit score is as low as you can go after losing everything after my accident which caused my disability....and I said...they didn't get much!!!!
Anyway, it was an experience...but, I'm fine and still going to fix up my little place...but will just take a little longer...
