it was on clearance, and i had some Kohl's bucks.
so i got a jen deal.
but the best part?
it has thumb holes in the cuffs.
i was super excited about those thumb holes.
then i learned it had an inside pocket for my ipod.
so, flash forward to this weekend, i was scooping up clothes for the laundry and threw my new fancy jogging hoodie in the laundry basket.
do you see where this is going?
threw that load in the wash friday night.
forgot to switch it over to the dryer.
put it in the dryer saturday morning.
buzzer goes off.
laundry still damp.
run the dryer again.
buzzer goes off.
laundry now dry.
pulling dry clothes out.
and then i see it.
my hand-me-down but very loved little 2gig ipod.
my poor poor washed once, dried twice ipod.
i wanted to cry, but no one was home to share in my sadness.
so i held it in and just moped around the house.
later in the day, i was telling the story to some friends who came over to scrapbook and lilly so sweetly says...
'at least you still have your kids."
yes lilly, very true :)
and i am so glad for that.
but im still sad about my ipod.
sad that i didnt check my pockets.
(because normally i wear my ipod on my armband.)
i normally dont have a fancy hoodie with an inside pocket.
and even more sad that i dont have money laying around for a new one. right. this. minute.
we do keep checking to see if it comes back to life.
but i really dont think that's going to happen.
dave says... 'put it on your birthday list'
but i dont want to.
i already have that list in mind and an ipod was not on it.
and i lost my ear candy too.
ohhhh. i'll get over it ;) it really isnt the end of the world.
but now that silly hoodie wasn't such a great deal after all.
