Hot Monday, Ugh!

There just is not enough weekend in the weekend, especially when today meant I had to leave my air-conditioned unit and face the wall of heat outside; but at least this week looks to be a lot less chaotic than last week — fewer must-dos to make me venture out.

Other than the MWF workouts, I’m only locked into a manicure/pedicure on Tuesday and dental cleaning on Thursday.

Since I suspect the dental office receptionist as being the person who’d hacked my credit card, charging $18 at Overstock, $13 at some Motor Club (thank the Lord it was timid small bites), I’ll be looking for signs of guilt — like not being able to look me in the eyes. I’ll also be paying cash. She how she reacts to that.

Activity Director has a Summer Craft class scheduled for Tuesday, which I’ll miss because the time conflicts with my mani/pedi but, if she stays true to form, the craft class was going to be cancelled at the last minute without notice anyway.

With no Bingo this coming Friday, and my heading out of town the Friday after — for the three-day Long Beach Pride Festival, doubt I’ll have any updates on the Karen/Dream Lover saga for a couple weeks.

Speaking of Pride, during the week I was reminded of how I used to take granddaughter to the Pride Festivals and Parades when she called to ask if I had possession of the book with the photo of her at Pride.

I do not. It’s one her mom has, but I’ll look for it while I’m in Long Beach.

Granddaughter was asking because, now that she’s a new mom, she wanted something to commemorate the baby’s First Pride — have a tee made with a photo of her as a baby at Pride alongside a photo of her baby at Pride.

Cute idea and the fact that she wanted something to commemorate the baby’s First Pride manifested itself because, when walking into a store to pick up a package the other day, stopping at the Pride display to see if they had anything that interested me, I lucked up on this.

    1. It was a lucky find and were going fast due to being placed directly in front of the entrance.

    1. Thank goodness I was in the right place at the right time again, because they were down to only three remaining AND, as I was checking sizes, some woman rushed up and grabbed one. LOL.

  3. Your sly Shirley! But what a good idea to do at the dentist office if you suspect the receptionist. The nerve that takes if she did it. I have been watching my monthly ledger and I too see very small bites like 5.99 and 10.99 for spoitfy and something or other. I called my cardholder and told them to stop any charges going to them as I don't use those services. I use my debit and credit cards sparingly and try to use cash mostly like you. Lord only knows how someone got my info. I also do very little to nothing online with my digits.

    I love forward to seeing your Pride if you take pictures. I love when we can all see each others Pride events.

    1. I'm surprised your cardholder didn't cancel the card and give you a new one. I will be a picture taking fool at Pride. Video too. Hope it's as much fun as the New York Pride looked in photos.

  4. Your comment about a wall of heat took me back to telco training in Dallas in August.. It was 105 every day for 3 weeks. They kept the training center at 65. I would walk out the door at 5 and the heat would take your breath away.

  5. I live in Vegas, it's 108 today. August will probably be 118. I hate heat like that so I know exactly what you mean. Too bad you can't figure out who made the charges on your card.

    1. I have my suspicions, but I think it's unfair the financial institutions don't track 'em down and let us know WHO. There's too much protecting the rights and privacy of crooks going around in the justice system. But at least it was small amounts this time. Last time it was $1500 and came back for another $1500 before the bank stopped 'em. I didn't have to pay for any of these frauds, but still ... it's just the idea of it.
