"is your card secure?"

I just bought my fancy pants new imac and discover thinks my card was lost or stolen. I guess that means I've been doing a good job sticking to my budget lately. I placed the order and tonight probably I'll place the order for my work computer. Just think of all those Gap giftcards I can earn with my discover points, I'm practically salivating. Maybe I'm just hungry. I haven't felt like eating lately and I wonder if it's the anxiety or the excitement or simply the depression wearing off. I guess I'll find out in a few weeks when I'm either so busy I'm stress eating or having to wear suspenders to keep my pants up. It'll be a scientific study.

I'm right now helping a colleague write a resume. My boss will probably have a breakdown. They had almost decided not to replace me and now they'll be down two tellers. Uh oh. Very happily not my problem. I'm going to have enough trouble hoping my Jamaicans are able to come for the season. I'm gonna learn all about visas and the horrible mess the gov has created this summer, it's going to be crazy. I don't know who they think is going to take the place of that many seasonal workers in this area, I just don't know.

I'm trying to knock out all the personal things I need to do before I start work for real on Monday. So far I've opened my Roth IRA, ordered my computer, cleaned up my desk, I still have to get wireless set up and a router bought so I can use said fancy pants computer at home and also see if my changing jobs counts as a life event to add myself to Matt's insurance. It's a lot to arrange while pretending to work. I'm not even counting the dishes that need to be washed. I'm tempted to toss them all and start over, or use the cloven hooved paper. Maybe I'll get styrofoam just to enhance the scandal!

When my husband got laid off it was a "life event" and I could add him to my insurance. Hopefully your situation is similar.

My, you are busy!
