Thankful Thursday

Happy Thursday Y’all!

So I did something really stupid yesterday. I was in the middle of a phone call with the phone company, the kids kept coming in and asking me a million questions, even though the door was closed and I told them I was on the phone, leave me alone for a few minutes, and Mr Wall Nut texted me to remind me to email in a copy of one of our checks so that he could set up direct deposit.

So follow me, on the phone with phone company, kicking the kids out of the room while they are talking to me, reading text message from husband, scanning check and then finally email it. Anyone wanna guess what I did that was so incredibly stupid?

I sent the email to the wrong email address! I missed 1 letter in the email address. Sigh. And it didn’t come back undeliverable. Sigh. Cry.

Of course this happened right after I paid 7 bills online and moments after the bank closed. Sigh. Cry. Vomit.

All I could do was put an alert on the account to prevent someone from making any phone calls concerning our account. But there was our tax return, sitting in our account with our names, address and complete account number sitting in someone’s email account. Sigh. Cry. Vomit. Faint.

I am Thankful that all of our money was still in our account this morning when we went to the bank to close our account and open a new one. We were able to send the bills that were paid yesterday to our new account to get the money out and anything that we did not tell them about will not be paid and the bank will receive an alert. I hope that we didn’t forget something important.

What I wouldn’t give to be underwhelmed right now!

Within a few minutes of getting home from the bank the phone rang. It was UVa. They called to schedule Owain’s Cath procedure in May, his Pre-op appointment June 23rd and Surgery date for the Fontan on June 24th.

Owain’s surgery is June 24th. Sigh. Cry. Vomit. Faint. Fall apart.

I am Thankful for all of the support and encouragement I have received already. I am Thankful that unless there is serious reason, we were able to schedule the surgery after the Mended Little Hearts Conference in the beginning of June, the Homeschool convention the next weekend and Wing Nut’s Birthday the following weekend. With prayers answered, we will be home by July 21st to celebrate Honey’s Nut’s Birthday and Little Nut Nut’s on the 25th. I know that is asking a lot, but I am praying.

I am Thankful for our trip to Hershey Park sometime before Wing Nut’s birthday that we are planning as a way to spoil all of our children before Owain’s surgery. We were there just before Little Nut Nut was born, it will be 5 years in June. The Big 2 have been asking to go back ever since. We  haven’t told them yet, they are going to be so excited. I am also Thankful that we have 3 months to try to come up with the money for this.

As always, I am Thankful for my happy, healthy, wild little beasties that run around my house all day long driving me crazy, I am Thankful that my husband has a  job, we still have a roof over our heads and for our wonderfully supportive group of friends and family and all the ways they help us.

So what are you Thankful for today? It is so easy to join in and tell everyone.

    Wow, I sound like you but I don’t have nearly the children. And why is the phone such a child magnet? I haven’t seen them in 20 minutes, they are actively engaged in toys but 30 seconds after I get on that phone they all appear desperate for help/attention/food. Praying for your peace and comfort.

      Thanks Kenna! Yeah, before I got on the phone, they were deeply entrenched in a game they were all playing together. It is like they play the game bother mom the most…they all won yesterday, lol.

    Wow, you have a lot on your plate right now. But I am so glad the money was still there this morning.
