I didn't get my car washed and vacuumed yesterday, but I did paint my fingernails! I used to always have my nails painted (I've never been to a nail salon in my life) but sometime a few years ago I just stopped. I think with all the stress of the year long bankruptcy and taking on a side job I just lost my desire for pretty nails. I just put on a couple of coats of a pale pink. It didn't take much more than 5 minutes to put on a couple of coats, really, but was a good little "perk me up".
Then I went and visited my grandma. I don't do that often enough - probably because I know my mom is seeing her every couple of days. She's just getting over a cold, which is no fun at any age, but at almost 95, it's really no fun. And she's tired and told my mom last week she is just "ready to go". She's still got a smile and can laugh, so that is good.
That darn Chase Fraud prevention recorded phone call came again - this time at 7am! What the heck? DD answered it and hung up instead of giving it to me and so they called back at 8am. I went through the 5 minutes of the call, even though I didn't have much time to spare right then and knowing they'd just keep trying back all day and DH couldn't answer the questions. The reason they called this time is because they declined a charge and wanted to make sure I tried to make it. I gave DS my debit card number so he could pay to have his visa for Australia extended. I had told him we'd pay this for him and gave him my debit card #. I got a message from him when I got up this morning that he had tried it and it wouldn't work, so he just used his debit card. Well, apparently Chase declined it because they didn't think I was in Australia! I didn't think to call them ahead of time and authorize the charge. So, now I'll be stopping by the bank today to deposit the money in DS's checking to pay him back.
DH is getting out of the house today, to take some car parts to be powder coated for DS, and he's got a friend (who makes him laugh) going with him, so hopefully that will get him out of the doldrums a bit. Let's keep our fingers crossed, anyways!
