I admit and I suppose its no surprise for any of you, but I am pretty stupid.

I was being charge since November 2017 and extra 25-30 euros per month by Vodafone, and I just found out.
First 2 calls, the guys would say its something you bought/used with your cellphone and its a third party. They could not give me the name of the third party, but they would give me back the last month and block those charges.

It was a total of $230 euros so I kept insisting and finally one girl called me back to tell me it was a mistake on the system and she apologized.

Sadly, I am not able to get my $230 euros back but I can only get it as credit into my account. I suppose this is the best I can get.

My 6 month old daughter is having surgery a week from now. I'm starting to feel anxiety about it all. She's oblivious but her mother and I are just worrying ourselves.  Its really sinking in at work right now and I'm trying to keep it together and focused.

I know she'll be fine but its just scary.  Especially the recovery since she'll have a catheter in for 5 days after the surgery.  She's so small and loves to squirm and flip over and try to crawl.  How is she going to do that with stitches, bandages and a catheter?  How do you prevent her from hurting herself? I wish I could take the whole following week of from work but after having mono earlier this month I doubt my company would be okay with that. I am taking the day of the surgery and the following day off but I just want to be there for her while she recovers.

Baby's surgery went "by the book" according to the doctor and a 5 day catheter was not required. Sleep has been non existent for about 7-8 days since we had to alternate between infant Tylenol and infant Motrin every 3 hours to manage her pain. A couple of days ago we finally got her to bed around her usual time per-surgery and she's sleeping through the night again. The catheter incision for anesthesia has closed up and no longer requires gauze. Her surgical incision's skin glue has mostly flaked off and the padding we've put over it got dirty so now we are going padding free.  It honestly moved around so much under her clothes and in the mesh that it was never really covering the surgical incision so I don't think my daughter will miss it.  The catheter incision is about the size of a small scratch, the surgical incision is about 5 inches long and with the skin glue almost flaked completely off it looks like a deep red line around her left side.  Its ghastly to look out and feels like a stab to the heart when I look upon it but I just love her so much and I am glad she's not feeling pain. I cannot wait until she completely heals.  Its not helping her recovery that she is on the verge of having a tooth erupt and caught a small cold (probably from the hospital as my wife has it too) and her coughs are alarming.  I'm so proud of her.  She's a tough cookie.

The smaller the child the worse these kind of things are. I hope she'll continue recovering with ease.

Hope all goes well Feanar. When dealing with those kind of things, it makes me not want complain about what I think troubles are.
I will have to give up the home Ive had for 28 years. Ive got my parents ( whom Ive been taking care of for a very long time) heading for the old age home. My mom has short term memory problems and my father is just a grizzled old prick but hes family. Made a deal I cant refuse for the house but where we are going is a far cry from where we are and it all has to happen for the 1st of November. I think Ill have to pack up the hobby stuff for another year or so.  The place we are looking at just doesnt have a hobby appeal so I may just dump everything and call it quits. Most of our stuff is heading for the dump or donated. Too bad, I will have to let a lot of family stuff go. In one way, it sucks but in another way it is liberating. No more will I have sentimental attachments to bog me down. Time to start new again and see where we land.
Ill just dedicate the next year to working every hour I can. The good part is I can still do this and there is always the forum to keep in touch with the hobby.

How is she doing now, 6 days later? Hope there's good improvement. Kids are usually very good at healing.

She's doing very well. We are weening her off the pain meds and she is back to her old self. She is being a bit of a brat but I think its because Grandma and Grandpa have been staying with us for the past couple of weeks. The incisions looks similar to if you scrapped your knee badly so its been much improved. I am hoping she'll return to daycare by late next week or the week after but we'll see.

On a lighter note
Someone broke into the store room at my workplace and stole two 11 litre tubs of dishwashing liquid. JUST WHO needs 22 litres of dish washing liquid?
JUST WHO does that sort of thing? It left my workmates and I all scratching our heads. Is there a black market dishwashing liquid racket in town?

I've actually heard about this before . Apparently dish washing liquid and soap are REALLY popular to steal or shop lift. Its the kind of thing that's really good to sell because it can move quickly, anyone and everyone can/will buy it, and there's no real identification of any kind. Pour it into an old bottle and sell it for retail prices and boom! Real easy money with no hassle about dealing with stolen cloths or jewelry or anything.

The resort I use to work at use to have a huge problem with it. The closest corner store that sold laundry soap was 2 hours away, and the resort jacked the price of what they sold up a ton. So locals would shop up with little bottles of laundry detergent and sell it out of the back of the car. Guests would buy mountains of it. and of course all of it was stolen from the nearby wallmart or something.
