This week has been a week.  I’ve had at least a year’s worth of stress and drama crammed into a ridiculous 36 hours, and good grief am I exhausted.  My brain feels like a pile of mush right now.

I thought one day was dramatic – a day involving the escapades of a stray cat who seems to have adopted us.  It’s a crazy story that involves an unintentional escape on the way to the vet, a fearful run, a catch and miss, giving up, and someone ringing my doorbell at night holding the very same cat who I thought I’d never see again.

In the end: I now have a foster kitten living in my bathroom.

But then the next day brought news that I am now a victim of identity fraud.  Not run-of-the-mill someone used my credit card number to make an unauthorized purchase identity fraud.  I’m basically a pro at that (online shopping, what?) and will be an AmEx customer FOR LIFE because of how easy it is to deal with fraudulent charges.

No, I’m talking about legitimate identity fraud: someone using my name, social security number, phone number, and former address to open lines of credit.  In my name.  For which I would be responsible.  Someone likely running around with a fake form of identification with my name and address on it.
