I joined Ravelry- a knit and crochet community a while ago but just now got around to using the website. I found a pattern for a pair of booties I thought my dad would really like and started on them early in the morning. The pattern was really well written and it's making it easy to work up. I guess the rating of "easy-peasy" was accurate.
I finally fell asleep around 5 am. Only to be woken up at 10 am, by my husband's cell phone ringing and text messages going off. Turns out... Our bank was trying to get a hold of us. On a Sunday.
I logged in to Chase to see what was going on. They said a "suspicious" purchase of $124.13 had occurred on our account and they were calling to verify whether or not it was fraudulent.
Wal-Mart had double charged us. I spent $163.61 last night and it had charged our card. Two of the items on the order were available at our local store for pick up today, totaling $39.48. Wal-Mart then charged our card a second time for the remaining balance of $124.13.
Our bank thought this was highly suspicious. It is. I am pretty sure that it is going to "disappear" as it is still only pending, but the very nice man with the bank said that if it went through and deducted the funds, to call back and they would refund us our money and dispute the charge.
Too anxious to fall back asleep, I decided we should go to Wal-Mart and pick up our items that we got. A Leachco Cuddle-U and more nursing pillow and a microwave bottle sterilizer from Munchkin.
The nursing pillow is neat; part pillow, part booster seat. It allows baby to be propped up in a few different positions and even comes with a little safety harness so he won't just topple over. A neat design. It also has silhouettes of animals as the print hehe
The sterilizer seems like the kind of thing I need... It holds 2 breast pump shields and 4 bottles of any brand or size. Also it has tongs. Wee!
At this point, I'm tired, cranky, and hungry. So we went to Starbucks and got ourselves some coffee and a snack. It took forEVER because it's Sunday morning and everyone and their brother was at Starbucks. I'm sipping on my caramel macchiato now wishing I had been smart to get the white chocolate mocha instead, since I like it better. Oh well. For the snack, I wanted a slice of Very Berry coffee cake, but it was sold out. Instead I got a slice of Iced Lemon pound cake, which was pretty good. Brian got a regular mocha with a Marshmallow Dream bar, which is essentially a giant Rice Krispie treat with extra marshmallows in them.
Not a bad day, just an unexpected way to start it. The rest of the day will be spent working. Boo.
What are you guys all up to this weekend?
