Now that we’re all back to good health (excluding the ol’ FM, of course), I get to deal with the latest piece of drama in my life: The second round of identity theft. Two more utility accounts, which have been opened by someone else in another state using my personal information, have been sent to collections and then passed on to me to dispute and then attempt to repair my credit. It is not a fun process. And as a busy mom homeschooling 3 children while trying to deal with fibromyalgia… I can say that there are so many other ways I would rather spend my time!!
But after dealing with 3 other accounts back in 2010, I now have a feel for how the process goes. So with each new fraudulent account we discover, it is a little easier to get through that process. What never gets easier, however, is the blow it all sends to my psyche and the way it makes me feel so helpless and so angry. Stealing someone’s info and doing these kinds of things is not a very polite way for a human being to behave, in my opinion. **ahem**
Life goes on, though, right?? At least, I suppose I’m fortunate that life goes on for the most part. It could be a lot worse, I’ll comfort myself by saying.
Let’s move on to a happier topic now, shall we?!
It’s my blogiversary. That’s not a word. I know. But you all know what I mean! I started a blog in 2007, but it was a personal/life blog to help me stay sane while raising twin babies and a 3-year-old child. I quit that blog a few years later and then began this crafting blog instead, in January 2011. So my little Laughadaisy crafting blog is now 2 years old. Yay! 😉
And guess how I’m celebrating?
You guessed it!
I’M HAVING A GIVEAWAY!!! YAY!!!
