Credit Card Fraud
Would you believe we had another credit card thief attack while I was traveling? I discovered the problem when I tried to fill up my rental car with gas before returning it to the airport and my credit card wouldn’t work. The very alert credit card company had flagged some purchases and then put a hold on the card until they could reach me to confirm what was okay and what wasn’t.
This time, it appears my card number had been stolen some time ago and a fake card created because an actual card was swiped to make the purchases. One of the purchases was over $3,000….
This is the second time in a year we have been the victim of credit card fraud. Last time it was a different card completely, and the fraudulent purchases were made via PayPal.
This is getting to be a pain in the neck.
The Joy of Napping
I have a new habit, one that is doing me an enormous amount of good. Every day that I’m home, right after my lunch, I crash on the couch for about an hour…which occasionally stretches into ninety minutes.
It’s interesting how easy it was to develop this good habit when it seems to difficult to form new habits like writing every day.
Can you get Noosa Greek Yogurt where you live?
If you can, and if you like yogurt, you should give it a try. It’s full fat and it’s delicious. I’m especially fond of the mango and strawberry-rhubarb flavors, but they’re all tasty.
I’m wrapping up the first draft of a new standalone mystery that still has no working title. It’s time for revisions and self-editing and giving the story a name. I hope this phase doesn’t take me as long as the first draft did. This is the novel I started during NaNoWriMo 2011.
I’ve had to stop reading so I can write the book reviews I need to get posted online. However, I did finish Stephen King’s 11/22/63 and liked it a lot. Now I can shift gears and start watching the TV mini-series version of King’s Under the Dome.
It’s back to work getting some things caught up, then lunch, then that wonderful nap. See you later.
