I’ve been robbed. Seriously. My bank account has been compromised and cleaned out and now all my cards are frozen and my money is overseas somewhere in the hands of bandits. It’s insanely upsetting and I mostly feel like I’m going to puke at any moment and I haven’t slept except for a couple of minutes of fitful tossing and turning (probably quite unappreciated by my bed partner!). After I discovered this last night and had called the bank and got everything cancelled and found out what the next steps were, Ray asked if I wanted to go to Dairy Queen. I said no, that I would just be emotionally eating my feelings. And he said? “That’s the point!”. It’s OK to make yourself feel better after something bad, even when it takes a gooey raspberry chocolate sundae to do it!
Since there is nothing that I can do about anything just yet, I’ll move on to the things that I was going to post about today anyway.
I’ve been complaining for a few months now that the amount of green tea that I drink has been staining my teeth. It’s gotten to the point where I was getting rather self conscious about it. On a walk up to the drug store the other night I popped into the toothpaste aisle to grab a whitening toothpaste. I ended up with Crest 3D Advanced Whitening which removes stains and has a feature that actually resists new stains. I’ve used it twice and I am already very, very impressed. The green tea stains (that my normal Sensodyne whitening toothpaste have done nothing for!) are almost completely gone. With continued use I suspect I’ll have my gleaming white smile back in no time! Highly recommend! (Crest hasn’t asked me or paid me to promote their product)
Last night before the banking catastrophe we also managed to find the new parts for my wagon wheels so I can go full steam ahead on that as soon as I’m not so stressed out that it’s difficult to breathe! Anyway, once my wagon is done it’s going to be parked in the front yard in front of my garden….right in the curve.
I think I’m all out. I’m heading out to the bank in about an hour to get the investigation started and get a new card (for my empty bank account) and hopefully by the time I get there they’ll have access to the report that shows where this all took place so that they can instantly give me my money back! I’m not that confident that this will happen, just hopeful.
Tonight I’m making baked turkey meatballs with a whole bunch of garlic roasted mushrooms and some green beans for dinner. And maybe a walk to relieve some stress. As much of a lame excuse as it sounds right now, I cannot even think about the gym tomorrow morning. I’m in full self-sanity preservation mode at the moment.
I can’t even imagine what that must be like. So sorry. I’m glad you have a nice white smile though!
Thanks for making me laugh, Maria! And seriously, my teeth are GLEAMING! I’m crying, but my teeth shine. That must mean something.
awww. I just got home from the store with my new Crest 3D!! Whoo hoo! I’ll be gleaming too! Maybe Crest should pay you for advertising. 🙂 Get you some money back!
This is a big one! You’re within every right to be in self preservation mode. Do what needs to be done to get by and whatever makes you feel better. My fingers are crossed that your bank gets their shit together and makes it right for you ASAP. And as always, I’m here for you.
Self preservation is where it’s at, for sure. Thanks for being a good friend, Tara!
