I went on a shopping excursion to replace some of the lost items in the now infamous suitcase.
Good news- two new small suitcases for the business, and I will use an old suitcase for my clothing.
Bad news. I found the perfect pants to go with a cute top I got at The Rack (never worn) only to find AFTER I brought the pants home, that this top, too, was in the lost suitcase. The count is now 4 favorite new tops lost. On top of the replacement cost, it is the time it takes to find the darn things!! Now I have to take the pants back.
At least I have a spare toothbrush, and lots of extra toothpaste.
