It took a scare after our last trip to make me realize that my husband's suggestion to make copies of all my cds was a good one. When we returned home from last trip, I could not find my case of cds for two days! I searched the van, I searched the house to make sure we didn't bring them inside. I searched the garage. I searched the ground around the van. I called my daughter in Philadelphia to make sure that I hadn't left them there. I was frantic and very sad!
With a great sigh of relief I found them! The case had slid far back under a middle seat in the van and with the case being black, blended into the darkness of the shadows. I then realized how much money would have been down the drain had I not found them! And I had all of my favorite cds in the case...most of my Elton John, U2, a 4-CD Led Zeppelin set, a collector Aerosmith, all of my INXS, and more!
So, I spent today burning all of the cds I like to take in the van to listen to while I am driving around. It's really monotonous, but will be worth not having to worry about losing them anymore.
