Case of the Missing Mascara

It is true! I lost my mascara. That's just a scary thought isn't it?
My mascara has left the face of the earth, which is what I say when I totally can't find something. A true emergency! If you are a woman, you probably understand just what I mean.

My mascara is the one kind of makeup that I try to never leave the house without. I have very blonde eyelashes, and I just prefer to have mascara on them when I go out. Call it vanity if you like. I call it necessity. :)

Some ladies never like to be without lipstick. I'm a mascara girl myself.

All 3 of my girls have dark eyelashes and I have always told them that they are so blessed to have them. If you have dark eyelashes, feel blessed.

When I was looking for my mascara, I asked Jadyn if she had seen it. I actually asked her more than once. Though she's never taken anything of mine, I thought it was possible that her little girl self may have wanted to try it out. On the second time I asked her she said, "I don't know where it is. It doesn't have legs, so it probably didn't walk off." LOL!

I bought new mascara today, and I feel so much better. You know how it is though- Now that I've bought a new tube, the old one will probably turn up. I have looked all over the place.

Last Friday, we had an emergency at our house. We had a big leak in our basement equipment room. A pipe was leaking, near where our water comes in from the city, and my husband could not get the valve to shut the water off. We had to call the city to come shut off our water, and call a plumber to replace the valve and that portion of pipe. This was an emergency, a $400 emergency.

Now I ask you, was my missing mascara any less of an emergency? Again, if you are a woman you will know what I mean.

Yes, that's an emergency. I don't ever leave the house without my make-up on. At least mascara isn't $400.00 but still its an emergency. The last time I lost my lip gloss I found it days later down in the kleenex box. It didn't take long for me to figure out how it got there....Hannah.

I was going to write it was an emergency but at least it wasn't 400 dollars and it was easily fixable......

Don't hate me, but I have dark lashes. Heh.

I have dark lashes but, I still need my mascara.
I need ALL my makeup actually, thank you very much!! :P

That's too bad about the water pipe! $400 is a lot of money but I guess it could have been worse if there had been damage to furniture etc.

That Jaydn is too cute! :P

Oh no -- have to have mascara too or I look so tired! Well, I probably am tired, but don't want to look that way! Glad you got some new. Hate those house water leaking emergencies -- we've had those before!
