The Queen of Lost
It’s been a busy sort of week here at Hackworth Headquarters. Since the tooth fairy was so busy last week, the girls and I decided to head out to the Â¥100 store (aka Daiso or The Hundred Yen Store which is the equivalent of a dollar store in the US) to spend her yen.
While we were out, we also decided to hit Tokai (the craft store) and generally just have ourselves a girls day out. I got lost. Twice. But then I realized I wasn’t really lost, which was a huge relief, let me tell you. In reality, I found a quicker and easier way to get to that side of town. It was so nice because I am the Queen of Lost. I grew up in a city laid out on a grid. I went to college in a town laid out in much the same way. Super simple to navigate, and still I would occasionally get lost.
Then we move to Pensacola, FL. I seldom drove. Not only was I about 20 months pregnant in the middle of July and barely able to fit behind the steering wheel, but it was just easier letting Justin chauffeur me around. Fast forward three months to us moving to Jacksonville, NC where there is absolutely nothing grid-like about their streets. I got lost our first night in town looking for the Wal-Mart. See? Queen of Lost.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to call Justin from a pay phone or gas station and ask him to find me on Google Maps.
The point of all of this? Yeah, I’m not sure. Except I have no pictures of the kiddos for you since we’ve been so swamped this week. But I got that cute little bucket at Daiso for (you guessed it) Â¥100 and the pretty purple flowers the next day at You Me Town for Â¥398. All in all a cheap ($4.29) way to make me happy and give me something other than my kids to show you.
