Here too.
Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:6,7 ESV

Thanks for the ongoing prayers. This whole kerfuffle has had bright spots and very dark spots, and the bright spots have been surprise blessings, the kind you say "I can't believe something this good has come out of something this bad. And stupid. This has to be God." But in general, it's been %fracking terrible all around and it's no way close to over. The best way to express it comes from independent text messages from two friends: one who's at the center of this whole mess and another who's supporting me as we go through it.

#1: "I wanted the movie of my life to be on the Hallmark Channel, not Lifetime."
#2: "Ha! It's more like the Rocky Horror Picture Show."

Thanks, people. I have to admit that a couple of nights ago I finally just broke. I came apart. (Thanks for the PMs and voicemails; you know who you are...). But I came back with new perspective on what's important and what isn't, and new priorities on the 'important' items. The wife woke me with a kiss at 6:30am and informed me that our new Discover cards would be here in a couple days, since someone in the Netherlands had tried to charge $900. Today is the day I pay most of the bills. With our Discover card. I laughed. I honestly laughed.

Some days I'm a manipulative a-hole and it's grand fun. Today I was a manipulative a-hole and it wasn't so much fun. But I think I did the right thing.
