I am just about beside myself. I'll get over it, and I'll probably have some funny stories before it is all sad and done, but for the moment, all I want to do is scream!
First, the glasses. There is still no sign of them. The doctor's office called today and they've torn their place up, just in case the little box got stuck in a nook, but no. Nothing. Meanwhile, I've gone through every receipt and piece of paper in my house looking for the receipt. I really do keep most all receipts for a period of time, but this one somehow got tossed or lost. I have no way of tracking the glasses. Additionally, for some stupid reason, I didn't insure them. Honestly, the lady at the counter and I were talking, and I forgot to ask for it. Unless a miracle happens (PLEEEEEZE, St. Anthony!!) I'm just screwed on the glasses as I will need to get new ones.
Then, this afternoon I got a call from my mortgage company. It seems I am $35.47 in arrears! OK, the escrow was adjusted, just a tiny bit, but I didn't catch it on the last two payments, so I have to send that in. No big deal.
But then ....
I asked why it was adjusted.
What ensued over the next two, almost three hours is beyond being told here! It was a change in taxes, but ....... At the end of this, I ended up calling the county to find out the status of my taxes. Guess what? In 2010, the mortgage company paid my ....2008 taxes. 200-freakin'-8!!!!! They are getting ready to send out the 2010 tax bills!! My name/property is on the "uncollected taxes" list!!!
There is much more to this, including a non working fax machine in the escrow department of the mortgage company, meaning documentation can't even be sent so they can get this straightened out!!
I'm truly distraught. I have tomorrow and part of Thursday to get everything done that I need to before my sister's funeral. Then I will be on the road on Friday, the funeral on Saturday, back here to finish packing for Hawaii on Sunday, and I have so much to do!
After my trip, I'll be buying new eyeglasses, paying back taxes (perhaps), and a couple other small annoyances that I just can't contend with at this time. I wish I could get this settled before leaving so I can enjoy Hawaii fully with it hanging over my head.
CRIPES!!!!!!!!!!! Jazmyn just jumped on the computer and tore off a key from the keyboard! Shit and shinola!!!!!!!!!!!!
Right now, life ain't so beautiful.
PS - I forgot a detail. I didn’t sleep well last night, I guess worrying about the glasses, along with everything else. Not long before dawn I woke from a weird dream. I was in a house and there was a bit of a commotion outside and some guys came in helping another man who was hopping along on one leg and grumbling. Behind them came another fellow carrying the man’s LEG!!! They told me his leg had been worn off by a dog. Then there was another commotion and another group came in with a man with both legs missing! He, like the first man, didn’t seem to be in pain, but was majorly pissed off and kept saying “Someone kill that dog!”
Hmmm. I think I might be feeling like the universe is tearing my legs off, what do you think?
I'm taking a sleeping aid tonight.
