You better report that SSAN, though.


What is SSAN? I called IRS and they told me to put a fraud alert on my...errr....account with the national credit reporting agencies. Which I did. They told me I need not talk to the police or anyone else before something actually happens - but the fraud alert should help to prevent that. Should I do anything else?

It stands for Social Security Account Number. The reason you should contact the SSA (Social Security Administration) is because if your SSAN is now blacklisted for credit purposes, you can't use it to get credit, either. It may be possible for SSA to issue you a new SSAN.

why would it be blacklisted? because i put a fraud alert in with Equifax? They don't ask why I put a fraud alert in, nobody used my SSN or attempted to get into any of my accounts. Granted, that can still happen, but i doubt the pimpled kid that took off with my suitcase would be able to figure that out.
Better safe than sorry though, that's for sure. I'll find the SSA online and give them a call. Thanks.

I woke up with a cold yesterday. Thought I was out of kleenex, but found another box in my car. Phew!

Well, this is all good news. Treya, I remember you as Hezibifia (or something like that). I recall one post a while ago where you were causing unintentional bodily harm to yourself from daily household chores-

Congratualtions on all your big changes. Wow. That's a lot of good change. Yay.

Thanks Gala. I was causing myself unintentional bodily harm at one point? Hum... I guess that's not too surprising as I had a bit of a rough patch there for oooh... about a year and a half. Heh... It's funny though the changes a little determination and persistence can bring. As much as it sucked at the time and I didn't want to really listen to anyone's advice here (which all pretty much turned out to be right on by the way) I can look back now and say it was worth every moment of it just to be free from the garbage I was creating in my own life. Time to get back to actually living now. Yahoo!

My good news is that I had the lovliest little day today.

There was no school so Mo went to work with Mr. B for a while. Mr. B's work is one of Mo's favorite places what with all the forklifts and fun stuff.

I went to the grocery early and nobody was there so I had the whole place to myself.

Then I went to buy Mo socks where I ran into a friend I hadn't seen in years and years and had a blast catching up with her.

I then met Mo and Mr. B for lunch where we had a great meal and a good time.

The day was beautiful and sunshiny and warm so when we got home Mo and I didn't even go in the house. We drew chalk pictures all over the street. We made our own Lincoln Logs out of the branches we had pruned from the trees. We built things. We talked. We played dart tag target shooting.

Our neighbor "Carol" stopped by which surely sent tongues wagging. Carol doesn't like anyone of the "bitches" who live around her but she likes me and nobody can believe that she's nice to me. Carol's an ex-Texas broad in the Ann Richards mode. I love her. And I love to make tongues wag. So does she. It's fun to have her for a friend.

I organized sports equipment while Mo had bike races down the median with a pal.

Now I have some pasta primavera simmering on the stove and a glass of nice Chardonnay at my left hand.

Mo is watching Tom and Jerry cartoons getting ready for his bath.

It was all so brilliant and quiet and unexpected.

Good news indeed.

That does sound like a blissful sort of day, Boom. Glad to hear it.

My good news is that it is Saturday. Saturday is my favorite day now.
No work and so can sleep whenever I want and forget about the alarm clock.

My taxes are done and I've gotten a good grip on doing them myself now, and some of the basics of learning not to fear numbers these days.

My apartment is messy but it doesn't matter today.

It's pure bliss simply knowing there are no plans today set in stone and I can do whatever my little heart feels like. That is the life!

I've been looking at houses lately, and seen some that are actual possibilities for me so that would mean getting into the housing market before things get even more insane.

Me, owning a house?! Never thought it could happen. And the best part is: I earned it all myself. No money from relatives like my friends did, no having to kiss anyone's ass or even depending on the bf's good financial stead.

It's the year of me! So yes, I am patting myself on the back here, and indulging in a bit of swollen ego (and don't feel one bit guilty about it!). Smile

Wow. That's almost picture perfect of the American Dream Boomer. You gotta love days like that! They're a rare treat!

Probably, you heard the Support people gave you here, and then let their words sink in without knowing it.

I think we all need an Ann Richards type for a neighbor, or in our lives. Some one who defies convention and makes life interesting for those of us who crave more than the status quo.

As for the whole day-- surely, all the stars lined up in your favor. How joyful it sounds.

Got my printer out of repairs today. We finally discovered that the printer driver was corrupted because my husband suggested that I take my Mac laptop and hook up the printer while still in the repair shop when he noticed the last time (it's been in repairs now 3 times in the past six months!) we were there, it was strictly a PC-based operation. We hooked it up, it printed out beautifully and then we decided to clean the heads, where the problems usually started and, well, to make a long story short, it became clear that the repair guys could never fix the problem because they'd never HAD the problem. The printer driver on my system was obviously corrupted.

Brought the printer home, downloaded new drivers online and voila! She's printing like a champ. Very Happy
