Things aren't bad, but I've certainly hit a bit of a bump.
Scottie came over to work in the yard this weekend, and he got a lot done. When he left, he called me to let me know he was gone, then cautioned me that while working in one of the landscaped berms he saw what he is pretty sure was a copperhead. He wasn't quick enough to kill it. L.O.V.E.L.Y.
Also over the weekend, I was advised by email that someone had attempted to get into my bank account. So I reset the password and security settings. Then today another advisory said the password was reset today. I was able to reset it again, then looked at my accounts and found that someone had removed $950 from one account!!! After spending almost 2 hours on the phone and talking to a half dozen people, it looks as if it is going to be taken care of. And tomorrow, I get to go to the bank, close accounts and open new ones. Of course, it means that I also have to change all the direct deposits, automatic payments, etc., etc., etc. The fraud department was right on it, but they won't know much for at least 48 hours. Meanwhile, the rest of the accounts are protected. For the life of me, I can not figure how someone could manage to do that. I'll talk with them more tomorrow about further security, but until they know exactly what occurred, I don't know what else can be done. I hope it's a one-time occurrence.
Finally, today the floor guy called and might be ready to start working . . . tomorrow! Yeah, another day early!! I sort of panicked until he told me that what he wants to do is not something that will get in the way of my tasks of clearing the rooms. There is some finish work to be done before he starts on the refinishing itself, and he isn't sure how long it will take him so wanted to get on it right away. I suppose that's fine, but with this bank thing going on, I don't know. This definitely is one of those times that it surely help to have another person around the house.
I just keep saying, "It's almost over, it's almost over, it's almost over." I hope I'm right!
