When it rains...

It pours, right? Which would explain the events of the past 24 hours. As I mentioned before, I am in the midst of preparing for my comps exam in two weeks, so I'm already pretty stressed out. Add to that the fact that Nick is out of town, and I've got a whole household to take care of alone, on top of beinga student and having a job, and I think most would say my plate is pretty full.
So last night when my clothes dryer broke I thought it was just the icing on the cake. I got online to check out some dryers and decided to check out my finances, and hence my ability to purchase said new dryer. That's when I saw it...the red, bolded numbers, on my account balance. Yes, I was in overdraft, something I can honestly say I have never, ever done. I freaked out!
As it turns out, someone who shares my name and lives a few hours away had meant to transfer several hundred dollars out of her account, but it got transferred from mine instead. Lovely.
It was all resolved, but there were several hours of stress before the happy ending!

Tomorrow Finlay will be visited by his potential new sister, Roxy. Her foster parents are still trying to determine if she would be better off as an only dog so tomorrow should help. If she doesn't work out we have a few other options. We'll let you know tomorrow how things go. Wish us luck!

Oh, and everyone please say a prayer for my friend Allison who is recovering from an extended stay in the hospital.

You may be able to have the dryer repaired instead of having to buy a new one. Ask at work about appliance repair servicemen that they have used or can recommend. In the meantime, you may have to use a dryer at the laundromat. Love -
