banks suck….

I know that posting about this will probably lower my credit score but at this point i’m going to have to wait 7 years and sacrifice a goat to the great ceo’s of wells fargo and co. in order to get a loan at all let alone to get a checking account.

**Side note** if you are getting a new checking account, get it before you get divorced or you don’t get one at all.  that’s right… I said CHECKING account.  Remember when those fuckers were free?  Now you have to have good credit.

I have to have good credit and flash someone – not really… I have to wait 6 months after opening a savings account in order for me to qualify for a checking account.

Another reason i don’t like banks:

I DON’T WANT TO HAVE TO DO EVERYTHING ONLINE.  I know that that particular statement coming from me is weird because i’m ever so slightly technologically inclined, but lately i have been having to do all of my dealings in cash so trying to make the few (but large) credit card payments I have to make extremely difficult.  I don’t have a card for me to be able to pay my divorce lawyer, I have to go online to transfer funds between banks and getting an online account at the new bank is a pain in the butt because you have to request it.

In conclusion…. People really should just start paying my bills for me or something because I obviously can’t handle it.

Purple fingers of fun!

So this morning was a bust.  Reaching out to friends and family all morning making sure that everyone is safe and dry.  Des Moines had an emergency evacuation last night due to rising flood waters and the Saylorville Dam is getting close to overflowing.  There was even an announcer for Drake University that drowned in his vehicle.

Luckily for us, most of the people we know were safe at home or at a friends house.  Afterwards was a short time for sitting, chatting, and crafting.  I’m trying to get stock up for the Psychic Fair at the Des Moines New Age Shop on the 23rd of July so Crystal is making A TON of Pussy Hatsdownload.jpg

And I’m currently working on a witch hat.  It’s not as big as I was trying to make it and I’m not sure if i’ll like it very much.  Ugh.  I’m so picky.

So anyway.  We decided that we wanted to check out the water levels around us.  We hopped into the suburban and drove down to one of the boat access ways couldn’t even see the parking area it was so flooded.  After spending about 10 minutes taking pictures and chatting, we all got back into the suburban and headed for the dam.  We had a lot of fun looking out over the waters then headed down to the lower part of the dam.

There we found a mulberry tree.  We picked all the bottom branches clean of all of the ripe ones and filled up a plastic bottle with them.  We also picked a few mint clippings and brought fresh growth from the mulberry tree home so that we could get them to resprout and plant them at home.  The mulberries we picked were amazing in the vinaigrette that Crystal made.

All in all, today was a pretty good day.
