Report: Tues 14th September.

They win. I had to give up for the day. At the last update, I was on hold with Social Security. The routing number my bank gave me was wrong.

It seems that my bank has multiple routing numbers. Multiple multiple. So, tomorrow, I’m going to call back, and give them the other routing numbers that google found. Sighs.

I mean it’s only my disability check, nothing will happen to me if I don’t have any money at all right? Right????

Yep, I’m sarcastic as heck. I used to, a long long time ago, have a social worker that helped with all of this. I’m whining. I know.

Meanwhile, my hair is still rust colored, and not purple. I won’t get a gorgeous purple hue this year, and will have to deal with the rust for awhile. I’ve bleached it one too many times, and have damaged it.

As for the puppy socks I knit? The pooch wouldn’t keep it on more than a minute. So I no longer have to knit the other 3 socks. Too bad I’m in the middle of the 2nd one. Chuckle.

The original plan for today was to finish the 2nd sock, start the 3rd, and knit on the patio. Didn’t happen. I went for a nap and a reboot of the brain instead.

Goals for tomorrow… Get the PI shawl off of the needles, and start crocheting the edging on it. Also get my disability check into the correct account. Lastly, I need to contact these, thems and those people and start moving all of my accounts to the new debit card.

Somewhere in there, I’m going to grab another nap. Also, on the recovery front, there is a meeting tentatively scheduled for tomorrow night.

Other things on my mind?

The banking snafu rates in the top 80 right now. There is an area meeting on Sunday to prep for, and there are many other things to do. I probably should get outside and do my knitterly best on the patio. A shower would be nice…

That’s about it. -L


Mid Day update

I should have never gotten the mail today. Maybe I would have been better able to handle this tomorrow. Snort.

Here’s the scoop. I’m on hold for the 2nd time with SSA. My bank sent a letter, and they are evolving into a new bank. The problem?

I opened the mail, and did what they said to do. SSA needs to be updated for my direct deposit. The problem? I can no longer access the app for the routing number to my old account.

A 20 minute hold the first call got me zip. The 2nd call was to my bank, and the rep was muted or had problems. 3rd call was to my bank, and I got through to a human. Thank Goodness they had the info available.

Now, on the 4th call with this issue, on hold again, and with the correct information, to do the transfer for my account. Sighs.

I get it. I did try to access my account for the routing number myself. I did try to get through to humans. I’m just frustrated, and there isn’t enough tea in the house to deal with this. It is definitely a 2nd cuppa tea hour.

Good thing I got my nap in already. -L
