What the H-E-Double Hockeysticks!!

I am so frustrated right now!! I feel like punching somebody's cat. Seriously!

I got a call from my bank, Bank of America (BoA) on Sunday letting me know that they noticed "unusual activity" in my account with my debit card. The rep asked me to verify the last 3 transactions that were made and none of them were made by me. I don't really even use that bank anymore since I started an account with First Financial (FFB) here in Clyde. I mean I only had like 33 cents in there. There ended up being 6 fraudulent transactions in all. Four $1 charges for apple itunes, one $433 charge for, and one $117 charge for

So I spent about 45 minutes talking to the rep to get everything figured out. She canceled my debit card and ordered a new one for me. She also said that their "security" team will be pursuing this. They'll be getting all the information together about the transactions to file a case against whoever is making these charges and then send me affidavits on each fraudulent charge. Then they'll credit my account back all the money.

Then this morning I checked my FFB account and there were charges on there for apple itunes! I wanted to scream! How is this even happening? I called FFB, got that debit card canceled, and reordered. So, this means that both of my bank accounts are un-usable right now and I only have 2 stinking weeks to my wedding!! What the heck!?!

Anyway, thanks for letting me vent.

I should be working instead of blogging but I'm not so read something kind of funny.

Last Saturday the kids were outside playing. When I looked out the window to check on them, I noticed that Xander only had socks on with no shoes. I asked him why he didn't have any socks and to come inside and put some shoes on. I asked him, "Do you know how much those socks cost?"

Xander said: "Uummm, 60 thousand?"

I said, "Yes, 60 thousand. So don't ruin them."

We were at Tony's mom's house and she had a crucifixion hanging on the wall. When Xander saw it he said, "Mom, did you know that God died?"

I said, "Well, that's actually Jesus. Jesus died then was resurrected."

Xander said, "Actually, (and the way he says actually sounds like he's saying ashley) Jesus is his nickname."

I said, "I did not know that."

Guess What!!

So, guess what is back on?

This is the invitation I made that I'll be mailing out next week. Yes, I know it's proper etiquette to send out invitations at least 6 weeks prior to the wedding, but since we just decided to get married on the original date again yesterday, it doesn't leave me the etiquette amount of time. So, if there are any Martha Stewarts out there, suck it up.

Clearwire and You

I have Clearwire internet at home. I do not have a working computer at home. I still have to pay for the internet.


If anyone would like to have Clearwire internet in their home for $42 a month, please let me know. Clearwire is wireless so the modem can be moved to anywhere that Clearwire is available (yes, i've said Clearwire 5 times and no, this is not a product placement ad) and still work properly.


I have been battling with a lot of self-esteem issues lately. I'm not really sure why. Maybe it has to do with the time of the year. Maybe it has to do with me being tired of see everyone else looking so cute in their summer clothes. Maybe it's hormones. I don't know. Anyway, I have been making mental lists of what I don't like about myself or things I don't do well. This morning, I was getting dressed, brushing my teeth, putting on my make up, doing my hair and all the while still checking off all things I don't like. Then I began thinking of how Brandon said you can't fix a problem with the same level of consciousness that created it. So what I am going to do is make a list of the things I like about myself. Here it is for your viewing pleasure.

  1. My nose ring
  2. The kind of mother I am
  3. I remember my 3 bank account numbers, 3 debit card numbers, my SSN, both kids SSNs, my child support case number, and most of the Methodist congregation's addresses & phone numbers
  4. My name
  5. My handwriting
  6. My sense of style
  7. My embarrassing moments
  8. My tattoos
  9. The scar on my right knee
  10. My ears (i like that I have lobes, but not too much of them)
  11. The suntan line from my watch on my left wrist
This is what I have so far. I'm going to write this list down on a little piece of paper and keep it in my pocket so I can remind myself of the things that aren't so obvious.
