Day 99: 6.17.12
Sunday was Father’s day.
Another eventful day indeed… It started out great, I had bought Jason some gifts and made an awesome pancake breakfast. Early that afternoon my mother was coming back over with Sofie so that Jason could see her for Father’s day.
Here’s where it starts going downhill… somewhere between Renton and Seattle my back trunk popped open while I was driving and a part of my makeup kit fell out. I noticed my trunk was open when I got off the exit in Seattle. After I stopped to fix it, I noticed that something was missing. I was freaking out! I circled around the blocks a few times but saw nothing in the street. My makeup was gone.
I also made my mom miss her ferry because I was late; it was so upsetting, I couldn’t believe what had happened. Hundreds of dollars worth of my products and tools were gone just like that, and the worst part is I need them for my job. Shortly after posting about the incident on Facebook I got a very fast and unexpected outpouring of people willing to help me out. My parents, friends, and other artists like me have given and offered so much help, I am just so grateful to everyone. I didn’t have enough money to replace everything, but now I think I’ll be able to get back on track. I’m so happy and so grateful.
Here’s Sofie’s picture from Father’s Day, she had just woken up from her nap so she had terrible bed head…
