Laughing All The Way To The Bank

And in the bank too as I soon realized that my ATM card expired at the end of June. Doh! Of course being over 10,000 miles away from home doesn't lend ease to cash withdrawal without the new card... nor does it help that it's a 3 day weekend and the bank can't send out a new card until Monday.

I can't make this stuff up people!!

All I can do right now is laugh... and I'm doing a heck of a lot of it lately. Especially yesterday at the OB's office. I mean, what can I really do EXCEPT laugh, right? It's nobody's fault. And it's just extra time... despite it being a hot commodity lately. As I re-read yesterday's update, it sure took on a Debbie-Downer tone. But honestly? I wasn't upset about it. I actually appreciated the doctor's integrity for not going through with something he wasn't comfortable with.

We're set to go on our trip to Indianapolis tomorrow. All 3 kids and me on a "trial run" for our BIG trip back to Chennai next Thursday. As much of a pain in the tush it is to organize and pack up our stuff for this weekend, I'm super excited that for the first time in a very, very long time, all of my 1st cousins and their families will be together. I look forward to meeting new munchkins and introducing my kids to cousins they've never met. What a great photo opportunity too!

We get back late Monday night, and I'm scheduled to be at Hoag Hospital at 5 am on Tuesday morning (no rest for the weary). So if I don't get a chance to post photos before I'm finally 'fixed', I wish you all a wonderful 4th of July celebration!

No truer words have I spoken this year... G-d Bless America!

Girl... It's been one of those weeks for ya. We live near Indy. Hopefully this leg of your trip will be drama/event free.

I hope you have so much fun. Indianapolis? That's just down the road from me!! Well, 4 hours away. I'm glad the doctor didn't do the procedure in the office. Cautious is always the best road to take.

I agree. G*D bless America!!!

I had to laugh too - last year our US bank suddenly cancelled our card for "suspicious" activity. What activity you may ask? Purchases in Israel. Where I live. Where I've lived since long before I had that account. Which they know. Oh, sorry ma'am, our mistake. No, we can't just turn it back on, and yes, it will take at least six weeks to get a new card to you.

Aaaaahhhh.

Have a great visit this weekend.

I'm so glad you're laughing Jill because you made me crack up. I so needed it. THANK YOU! Sorry things are turning out to be more difficult than necessary. Never heard of that procedure before. Probably because I was having a c-section and didn't need to know the other options. You are my idol. Travelling with 3 little ones? Not sure I can do that. We're going to Disney in a couple of weeks so I guess I will feel your pain although it's only 2 hours, how bad can it be? Don't answer that! LOL

Have a great weekend and good luck with your procedure on Tuesday.

Much love from NJ,
Sue

Oh ... that sucks. Truly.

I lost my ATM card two days before we were set to leave OH ... and I'm fresh out of cash with really no way to do anything about it for the next two weeks.

Safe travels and sending my leftover sanity to you from our road trips. You can DO this!
