Good Wednesday Morning! It is already hot here so I’m drinking a cold brew from Harney & Sons. Blueberry Green. It smells so yummy! This morning I’m feeling fairly zen.
Our first weekend off was great. Saturday it rained all day and we watched Netflix and Prime shows with breaks for tea and naps! Sunday we hung out in the pool. Then Monday came along. It was weird not to have him home. What did happen on Monday? I did a good deed. Said good deed came back to snack on my ass! My neighbor had a young lady (27) staying with her for reasons that turned out to be false. This young lady gives the rest of us a bad name. Crying wolf over abuse and rape when it was nothing of the kind. She asked if she could call her attorney on my cell. Never have I done this but we all fell for her sob story. Around midnight I began receiving texts from a guy asking her to return his truck. I called said guy and boy did I get an earful!
The next day I had over $150 of charges to my debit card and spent hours on the phone with Chase Bank and the police. She didn’t steal my card, she used my phone and ordered herself an Uber from my mobile app. I was furious. Long story short, she is in jail and my money is back in my account. So….boundaries. I have them for a reason. I’m a sucker for a sob story. I should have run her background before letting her use my phone. My poor neighbor was horrified as well. See the girl had first asked if I had any books she could read. Well of course I do. I loaned her a book that doesn’t come out until October. Once I found out what she had done I marched over there loaded for bear. Retrieved my book and went home. And watched from my kitchen window while she was arrested. She did scream, ” I’m going to kill that bitch” and at that point, they added another charge.
Tommy just shook his head. “Why? Why can’t you stop getting involved with people you can’t save?” Because she asked for a book! So now I’m only allowed to go to the pool and the front porch. And my Russian neighbors’ house. That’s fine.
And now it’s Wednesday. Hot and humid. Around 100 today. I just checked and all of my boundaries are in place and the Anxiety Fairy is happily puttering around up there waiting for the Shenanigans Fairy to show up!
