So not cool...

Yesterday I had my phone on vibrate, which it tends to be on quite often because of sleeping babies and when I went to make a call I noticed I had 3 voicemails. I don't like the term "panic attack" but that is the best way I can describe the way I felt when I listened to the message that said...

This message is for (My Name) and I am calling with (Credit Card Company). It appears that there has been some fraudulent activity on your card. If you could please give us a call at (the number) we are here 24 hours 7 days a week.

My reaction...almost too fast for hubby to understand. "The credit card company just called and said they think there has been fraudulent activity on our card and I went to the online banking and it won't let me pull up the account to see what is going on with it." Sweet hubby, "Ok calm down give me the number and I will call." 5 minutes later. He calls back to tell me that he activated he *new* card with his cell phone and that sends the credit card company a red flag. That actually makes me feel good that for one, no one was using our card and two, that they called and temporarily froze the account. That identity stuff really freaks me out.

Then my second freak out...my friend Amy and I took the kids to the library. I went to pull the van around and when I came back in, Red was gone. We searched *everywhere* and yelled his name. Yeah in a library we were yelling his name! Which I think made him become panicked because he was in the elevator and Amy said he was screaming right before she opened the door and when it opened his little face was right there. The librarian said that little kids run to the elevator all the time while their parents are checking out, they walk in while the doors are open then they close and the kids are stuck. Apparently our screaming his name and looking frantically made her aware that a kid was missing. I didn't even think to tell anyone that worked there that he was missing. I went in the "I must find my baby fast" mode. I am just happy today is over :)

Oh gosh, Tonya! What a freaky day. That is seriously one of my biggest fears is that I will loose one of the kids. I can't imagine the panic you must have felt! Glad everything was fine.

Two panic attack episodes in one day would send me right back to the hairdresser to cover up new grey hairs!
Hope tomorrow is better!

Hi Tonya! Thanks for your sweet post, that is really touching to hear of your children's prayers for our twins. I know the Lord is listening and working miracles in these babies' lives. Thanks you!
