Alright you guys, where are you?

Same to you Ruben!
Dose a bear
That should have read check facebook.
Yes, I disappeared for a bit, but it wasn't because I ran away. I suddenly had energy for the first time in FOREVER. I can't even tell you how awesome it felt to feel like my old self. Perhaps the iron infusions FINALLY worked. I struck while the iron was hot, literally and figuratively, and caught up on tons of housework, laundry, cleaning. All the work didn't even wear me out, where as before I could barely lift my head off the pillow and any amount of exertion sent me right back to bed. I never thought I'd be so excited to do housework. I accomplished more in the past week than I have in a very, very long time. I still have lots to do, but set aside time on Wednesday morning to begin catching up online. Today (well Wed Nov 24) was my first time back online in a few days. I began catching up at the Pilates board to a few and then wrote a long update post there and then POOOOOOF it was gone. Grrrrrr, I hate when posts get eaten. It took me forever to type and I was then going to copy and paste it on the Parkinson's board. I also took a moment to log on to FB to warn my friends that both my husband and I were victims of an ATM Skimming Scam at our local bank. Completely wiped out my account. Didn't know about it until I went to withdraw money on Monday and it said "insufficient funds". Went in to the bank and talked to the teller who said I only had $1 left in my account. My husband, on the otherhand, was called by the bank within 5 min of the fraud occuring this past weekend. My account showed the initial illegal withdrawal was done from my account at an ATM machine at Time's Square in NYC the exact same time and place my husband's was withdrawn (we have separate accounts and no access to eachothers, but I knew the time he was warned). We have the same bank yet he was given a warning call. Glad they reimbursed us within 72 hours with provisional funds but STILLLLLLL. Apparently 26 other Suntrust customers, that they know of, where victims of this same fraud. They have images of the man wearing a cap and dark glasses. Far too vague I'm sure to capture the clever criminal. GRRRRRR :( Here's more on this http://www.snopes.com/fraud/atm/atmcamera.asp http://ezinearticles.com/?ATM-Fraud---Skimming&id=2978927 You all be careful this holiday season out there! Oh... and my daughter, who is a Senior in college, came home for the Thanksgiving Holidays for a 1.5 week visit. I hadn't seen her since August. I also finally got to meet her boyfriend, who came along at the last minute (luckily they came the week I finally CLEANED the freaking Pigstye called out house, lol). We spent time together catching up and even went in to Annapolis for a bite to eat. I LOVE having my energy back. I did spend ALL of Sunday in bed, even missed church, but that was my one and only set back in energy since it came back. Right now I'm awake because... well, sometimes I can't sleep. Y'all know how that is around here. I'll be up early tomorrow to back the cranberry/apple casserole that I bring to my Mother's who hosts our family gathering. Phew, so... I'm back. Shaky, Stiff fingers crossed that I'm on the road to recovery. Can't WAIT for 2010 to end.
