Maybe I shouldn't claim this..My grandmother used to say Name it and Claim it, I just have to talk about it. My day/week is off to a bad start, I called early this morning to check on my 401K account, some of my fellow co-workers were talking about they had lost money last week when the stock market took a plunge down. I called and talked to one of the agent. Sure enough I have lost 1,127.14 since I called on Oct. 6. They are trying to explain all this giberish to me, all I know is the my money amount has decreased. And there is nothing I can do about it. Then I took my car to be serviced, oil and filter changed and tires rotated. When the serviceman finished he approached me and ask are you having problems with your windows. Yessss. My front windows motor is not working properly, the windows will come down and will not go back up. I said I know you didn't let my window down. He replied yes ma'am. I asked why did you do that? The owner replied, in case the keys get locked in the car. I am upset by now but trying to hold my cool. I just let it go what else could I have done. I did tell him that you would have to do this on a day it is raining outside. I can get it back up but it is going to take all day. What a start of a perfect day a brand new week. How is your day/week starting off.

Hi Chevee, I had a bad morning because my husband is going in to work and all he did was whine and cuss, oh, he was like a child who didn't want to go to school on a Monday, he made me so mad and as soon as that front door shut, I sighed of relif. Love & Hugs. Tamara

That is a bad start to the week My day started off just fine, I slept until noon. I was awake a number of times but I just couldn't bring myself to get out of that nice warm bed I do hope your day/week improves. As for the stock market troubles, I saw earlier that the market is on it's way back up, raising itself 600 points this morning. Maybe that will help our retirement funds

Oh no it sounds as though you have had a thoroughly rotten day!! My week hasn't started out brilliantly either, i had a huge argument with my mum yesterday and we still haven't made up so i'm not very happy about that!!! I hope you've managed to get your car window sorted and you didn't get too wet! Well i guess we have to look on the bright side, it's only monday so there's time for the week to get better! xxx
