What a day!

I had my identity stolen yesterday. VISA alerted me that someone charged almost $500 on my Visa at a 7-11 store. How do you charge $500 at a convenient store unless you're an employee or you're friends with an employee? Thankfully I have an awesome credit union who will take care of everything. One thing they don't take care of is reporting it to the police so D and I will do that alone. The thief also spent money at a restaurant and a high school which leads me to believe it's a high school kid doing this. All charges were in Tacoma - D and I don't go to Tacoma!

Oh, and yesterday morning my car battery died. I park on one side of our 2 car garage and the other side has misc items in it and is used as D's shop. Unfortunately my car has a safety feature that doesn't allow the car to be put in Neutral when the car isn't on, so D and I had to move the stuff out of the other side of the garage and he pulled his car in to jump my car.

Then last night I was up late waiting for D to get home from a city meeting and when he got home he threw a pair of workout shorts in the doorway of our bedroom. He never throws his clothes on the floor and my subconscience said "Don't step on the shorts" and at the same moment I was walking into our room I was turning around to ask D something and I hit the last three toes on my door post hard. The second to last toe on my right foot hurt so badly last night that I didn't sleep well. Today it's turning blue (bruised) and it's swollen. I can't even put weight on my heel because the pain to my toe is too much. I think it might be broken. D says I should go to the doctor but I don't think they can do anything for a broken toe and I cringe at the thought of anyone touching it!

Top those stories off with me burning my finger on the oven when I was roasting pumpkin seeds and I'd say that yesterday was an eventful day!

Today my twin sister finds out if she's having a boy or a girl! :)

Wow, what a day!! I'm sorry to hear that about your identity - that happened to me before. It's so awful and such a hassle and rarely do they get caught!

Wishing you a better day. Looking forward to hearing the boy or girl news about your sister!

That is SOME day! Maybe next time a day starts out like that, forward all credit card company call directly to the P.D., put on one of those inflatable samurai suits and don't go out :)

I'm so sorry that happened to you. We had the same thing happen two years ago..it's so annoying to replace everything (she stole my wallet).
