Crazy weekPosted: March 3, 2005
though it seems to be passing quickly. My sister-in-law has been in the hospital all week with pre-eclampsia. Every day might be the baby’s birthday, but she seems to be stable, so they are waiting. The longer he stays in there, the better, of course. She’s almost 33 weeks along.
I am still getting bills for the initial tests of my own pregnancy. Durning the two months I was pregnant without insurance coverage, I racked up almost two grand in bills. I cringe thinking of what might have been, had we not found another insurer.
Everything’s going to work out for the best though. You gotta have faith.
and maybe a little bit of walking around money.
Good thing: Last night I actually got like 5 hours of uninterrupted sleep. That doesn’t happen too often, between the two kids and a husband who frequently rolls over on me. I feel like a million dollars today.
Interesting story in my local paper this morning:
BANK ROBBER DRESSES AS WOMAN
An armed robber dolled up in an unusual disguise hit a local bank Wednesday.
Forget the typical bandanna, ski mask or nylon stocking over the head – the man who robbed the bank was decked out as a woman, police said.
But he dropped some of his loot as he fled. Caught by the day’s wind, money blew around the parking lot before state troopers and some witnesses retrieved it.
The robbery occurred about 1:10 p.m.when the man gave a demand note to a clerk and displayed a handgun, a police spokeswoman said.
The clerk complied and no one was injured, she said.
Witnesses said the robber – described as a white man in his late 20s or early 30s, 5 feet 10 inches tall, 120 to 125 pounds – was wearing a black felt hat, black skirt and brown tweed blazer.
However, he was not fashionably accessorized: Police said he wore brown work boots.
Police did not say how much money was stolen or how much, if any, got lost or picked up by passers-by in the parking lot.
After the robbery, a stream of would-be customers walked up to the closed bank, some expressing frustration before walking away. Police said the bank would reopen today.
The robber has not been captured yet.
