So yesterday afternoon was a crappy one. I did, however, receive a package at my new house from my dad and step-mom. So there was that to brighten it up. I do like getting packages in the mail. Yay for Christmas presents! Thanks!!! Seriously. You have no idea how much that made my day better.
We also got an impromptu visit from the Dowds, so I finally had a moment to commiserate with other people directly affected by the cancellation of Stargate Universe. I’ll have more to say about that in a future post.
Today is not shaping up to be much better, unfortunately. Its snowing. I was an hour late to work. Gabe may be the victim of identity theft. We’re not sure what’s up yet. But it definitely seems his paypal account, at least, has been compromised. His checking is overdrawn and we see two transactions to transfer money into Paypal, from his account. Of course the bank won’t let him dispute it until after it clears. I suspect it’ll reject anyway. Otherwise we’ll have to wait til Tuesday when it shows up in Paypal to transfer it back.. which takes a few days as well. Obviously we need to change his passwords and such.
And the law offices representing Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac continue to be non-responsive. Looks like our cash-for-keys deal (whereby we agree to move out in a matter of weeks instead of the 60+ days we’re given by law… an agreement we’ve certainly upheld our end on) may not happen afterall. Kinda hard to get you the paperwork in time if you can’t be bothered to get it to me in time to fill it out and get it back to you. Sunday is the deadline. It’s Friday.
None of this bodes well for my wallet. I have a hefty installment to make toward the moving-in costs, which will pretty much negate today’s paycheck (once groceries have been acquired). Being as we were supposed to be getting some cash on Sunday, that wasn’t a big deal… but now…
Well, this too shall pass. I have some options. Unattractive ones, but options nevertheless.
