Stupid people and sick babies (a whingefest)

Someone stole Nathan's credit card today. Someone with bonehead taste – Walmart, Shell, Sonic, more Walmart. I'm just glad we realised it was gone before they did any more damage.

And this after I've spent much of the day at the hospital with poor little Berry who, it turns out, has an ear infection and a sinus infection in addition to her endless cough. She's been attached to me like a limpet, burning up, and occupying the teensy bit of real estate not already claimed by Kickbaby.

The bank has cancelled the card and removed the fraudulent charges. There. Now I hope they choke on their Sonic burgers.


  1. Wow, we seem to be in the same boat...minus the stolen credit card. My son came down with the flu Monday and was generous enough to share it with me. We're both a miserable sight, lying on the couch surrounded by grimey tissues.

    Best of luck with your little one! (and little-one-to-be)

    -You have a wonderful blog and write eloquently...I've fallen in love with your Wedding Story!

  2. I had 3 credit cards stolen from me last year, it was a little nightmare! But the credit card companies responded well and the police finally caught the guy. They actually went to the stores in which he had used my cards and got videos of the guy. He was a recurrent little punk too, so it was just a matter of time until they caught him.
    I hope Berry feels better soon, that must suck for her.

  3. Ugh. What an ordeal. And poor little Berry- I hope she gets better soon!

  4. Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about your troubles. At least the credit card has been cancelled.

    I hope your little one is feeling better soon. Been there done that so many times. I know how rough it can be.

  5. What a terrible day. I'm sure things will start looking up tomorrow!

  6. oh goodness, helen. what a day you've had. hope berry gets better soon. and GEEZ what was that person thinking stealing the credit card. silly people.

  7. oh geez. when it rains it pours. Hope she's on the mend!
