That thing called life…..

It has really been “one of those days”.

I woke up late, made coffee, spilled coffee (but it helped me clean up a previous juice spill in the same spot so I was trying to call it a win), got more coffee tried to get going.

Yes it went that like that all day.

I am truly a “keep hope alive” kinda gal.

It’s my motto my friend, the One True Bob, started saying back in 2001 and it stuck. Thanks OTB!

I kept trying though I wasn’t about to let a bit of a mood, spilled coffee and the tasks at hand get me down! I am made of stronger stuff than that!

I met with the sprinkler guy and chatted for about 20 minutes regarding parents, families and chipmunks!

Then I got it together, showered, got dressed and worked for a bit before heading off for errands.

Of course this life thing decided to see what I could handle so there was challenges at the post office and my next meeting, but my “quick” errand to the bank was the most entertaining.

You know how you can find jobs on Craigslist.

You have to be careful as there are some zingers out there such as the topless personal assistant needed, no touching – yeah I didn’t touch that one either…not judging but not what I am looking for.

I have done ghost writing, article writing, copy writing, personal assistant and virtual assistant so this is where I was looking.

I found what seemed to be a “legit” personal assistant ad and applied for it. I got another set of questions and a “light” background check. Ok.

So yesterday I receive instructions on how to go about working with my “boss” an art collector and that a check would be mailed to me and I was to deposit it, keep my portion and Western Union to another art dealer the money. It was also  suggested I  use the ATM deposit. Oh no.

Yeah, anyone else feeling those red flags?!

Today I got the check and decided “well I will go into the bank and just see.” At first it seemed on the up and up, the teller couldn’t find anything wrong with the check. I told her my concerns that it was a scam and could she please look further into the bank account on which it was written.

I go to this bank all the time. I go in. I know several tellers and managers because it’s how I roll. I was handed over to another gentleman and he took me to the top manager, which I had just seen last month when I dropped off the packet for a charity event. I plopped down in his office and laid it all out for him.

He did a bit of research and found that interestingly enough that company and account had a habit of canceling checks and closing and reopening the same account. It was so a scam! I forwarded my emails from the “employer” Mr. Johnson Wee (the envelope had Johnson Chris) to my banker dude. I also told him that I would blind copy him on all the emails I received from Mr. Wee as we both knew I would be getting “did you cash the check emails”. Yes it felt good taking the  bad guys out for a change! And I did forward him all 7 emails I got this evening!

I did make it to the school in time to get my boy but of course there was no parking as it was K4 graduation day and I was trying, and succeeded, on getting said boy to karate on time!

I made it home and made dinner, go me!

Boy ready for bed check- , computer – check – I can do this!

Then I start typing. Boy is “sick” and my keyboard is acting wonky!

I think I am done for today. Hoping for a better Friday!

I am ready to toss this computer so I need  to  sign off!

Have fabulous dreams my friends!

Tomorrow will be a better day!!!

  3. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance”
    between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say
    you have done a excellent job with this. In addition, the blog loads very fast for me on Safari.
    Excellent Blog!
