So, right after I published the previous post, I went outside to get in my car and head to the gym. From there, here’s my day:

Found both cars broken into. Police come quick. Called insurance. Called glass people who say they can’t come till tomorrow. Dog eats pack of gum. I drop my iPhone. Time Warner charges us $30 extra because our debit card expired. Sigh.

Silver linings however…glass people are understanding that I can’t wait until tomorrow, so they are here now (5pm-bunch of hours later, but at least it is TODAY). Dog seems fine. iPhone seems fine. Book on CD that I really wanted that had not previously come in time is now at the library waiting for me to pick up before I finally do head to Charleston. AND, even though my coffee maker was one of the items taken, I called the hotel to let them know I’d be late and was told there is a Starbucks next door.

Things are looking up. REAL conference updates tomorrow – I’ll be on the road very soon!
