The Saga-o-the-Wallet Continues

Hi! Hello! Hola! Al-O-Ha! I'm here! I'm alive! I'm wallet-less!

In case you haven't been through it yourself, and are a little dense, I'll just tell you. Having your wallet stolen is a lot of WORK and causes much STRESS. All in all, it SUCKS. But, since I'm pretty sure that none of you, my lovely, loyal, kickass readers, are dense, I'm sure that's something you could have figured out on your own.

That, my friends, is precisely why I haven't posted here in a few days. My apologies. I hope you'll cut me some slack. I've spent HOURS on the phone with various credit card companies, credit reporting agencies, etc. and additional hours online, not blogging, but filling out forms and researching horrible things like identity theft, home invasion robberies*, Zoo Membership and Costco card theft. Horrible things, I tell you, all of them.

To make it all SO much better, my wallet was stolen 10 days before my Dylan's party**. There is LOTS of purchasing to do. Purchasing is hard to do with no wallet. I also had to close my checking account and open a new one and my lovely bank has put a HOLD on my new account so any money deposited is not immediately available. I'm not sure how that's going to play out this week. We'll see. I predict MUCH more sucki-ness in my immediate future and an argument in the lobby of my bank.

I was going to put some photos of the boys here, but Google apparently is out to get me as well and does not want to share them. Bastards. Google and Sonja are officially on my notice.

*In the land of Meghan, where over-reacting rules, having your wallet stolen automatically leads to a home invasion robbery. Especially after the Police Man asks if you have an alarm system
**The party of the century is Saturday. I really hope you've all made your plane/hotel reservations already, or you're cutting it REALLY close. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance to you in that regard. Although, I can't put down a deposit or anything, being as I have no access to credit cards.

Sounds terrible! :(

And I'm afraid I've been remiss on making my plane/train/etc reservations for the party of the century - perhaps next year? ;) You'll just have to post some pics of the fabulous shindig to make me all sad I'm gonna be missing it!

Oh lord. Bless your heart. I was getting a bit worried that the home invasion had happened and they Sonja carted off your computer. She probably would just take over your blog fact, that you?

Ahh...ooohhh...mmm....I seem to have forgotten to make those reservations. ; ) Dang, I would have loved to come to CA!

Serious suckiness. Sonja sucks. We've all put her on notice.

Love HRH's comment.

Yeah, Googling things like that does no one any good. Same with medical sites.

Sonja is an asshat.

Christy said...

I was really hoping that maybe Sonja would call you back and actually return your wallet.

I hope Saturday is great!

You've pretty much summed up my job on most days.

I hope that your party of the century is all that little Dylan has hoped for!
