I feel so stupid

I feel so stupid. Yesterday I got a phone call from someone claiming to be from the IRS. Now that I think about it, it was obviously a scam because the IRS doesn't call people. Anyway, I gave them my banking information and my social security number. I feel so stupid. So today I've been doing damage control. I had my bank account changed and I had a lock put on my credit. I'm just so upset with myself.

I'm going on vacation!

I'm so excited! I'm going on vacation to Las Vegas and the grand canyon. 3 nights in Vegas, then we (I'm going with my parents) are going to drive to the grand canyon. This is going to be so much fun!

In Las Vegas, we're going to stay at the Palazzo, which is a brand spanking new hotel and casino. I read somewhere that it's a five star hotel. I've never stayed in a hotel that nice. We got tickets to see Cirque Du Soleil Mystere in Las Vegas too. I'm just so excited about this vacation. Too bad it's not for another 3 weeks.

All about yesterday

Yesterday was the superbowl. The Patriots lost. Good thing I don't care all that much about football.

Yesterday was also my brother's birthday. He came all the way from Portland, Maine, where he goes to school, to spend it with us. He took his cake back with him.

Mad at myself

I am so mad at myself. I am mad because I need to refill one of my prescriptions and my mother keeps giving me a check to bring to the pharmacy and I keep losing the check. This has happened twice now.

Having a pajama day

Today I am having a pajama day. That means I am not getting out of my pajamas all day. I feel like I deserve it because Friday I drove my friend Nikki and her now husband up to New Hampshire so they could elope. I was the sole witness other than them and the justice of the peace. Yesterday I did a lot of running around for my mom. I feel I deserve a day of rest.

Insurance companies are driving me crazy!

In trying to deal with the whole car situation, I contacted my insurance company and I contacted the other party's insurance company. Both companies wanted to appraise my car. So I've been driving all over getting my car appraised.

Car Accident

Just my luck, I was driving along and some lady backs into me. I got a guestimate of the damage from the auto body shop, and the car's got about $3500 worth of damage and I'm going to be carless for 2 weeks. Because I'm under 25, I can't rent a car. Lucky me.

Introducing me and my life

Hi. I'm Rachel. I'm a 22 year old Jewish girl who is single, unemployed, and living with my parents in suburban Massachusetts. I've got a non-verbal learning disability, which is basically the same thing as Asperger's except I talked earlier. According to my mother, I was speaking full sentences at 21 months.

I'm currently sitting in a Honda dealership waiting for my car to finish being serviced. That's right, I forgot to tell you, I am the owner of a 2006 Honda Civic, which basically my parents are paying for, although I did provide the down payment out of savings bonds. See, my grandparents gave me a car for my 18th birthday, but when I was in college (no, I am not a college graduate, I was there less than 3 semesters) I totaled it.

I am currently working on moving out of my parents' house. I'm thinking of moving into a group home. One of my therapists (I have 3 therapists) thinks its a good idea and talked me into it. I don't know much about group homes yet, but I'm looking into them. Hopefully by this time next year I will have moved out.
