Concert Tickets! Whirlwind of Feels!

12:01 p.m. Once again, it seems I don't have a lot planned for today. I'm gonna see if I'm interested in making anything new on Secondlife, after all. I'm also waiting eagerly for when I'll get my chance to buy concert tickets later today! :3 I researched which seats would give me the best view for my price range and everything. :3 First concert and all.

12:29 p.m. Took a bathroom break. Started some ramen. Today my Secondlife store needs another overall. So soon, too. -_- It's just, I need some space. I'm feeling...creative..too. <3

12:47 p.m. Finished my food. I have light unexplained scratches on my chromebook, but oh well.

2:17 p.m. Surprisingly, and only temporarily, bittersweet news. Start with the good news. WE GOT THE TICKETS!!!!

It looks like the concert is officially on. 

And from where I'm sitting, this is approximately how they'll look:

Hey. Ant-sized smøl bean is better no smøl bean. :))))

I'm partially excited. Partially coming down from a huge state of panic (and not the good kind.)

I only had enough in my bank for the two tickets. I, naively, selected insurance..since an extra charge wasn't made plain, and no changes to my total until AFTER checkout. An extra 16 plus dollars, that I don't have. 

Even if I took all the cash in my bank, I'm still short five bucks to pay it.

Thankfully, it's a separate and non-immediate charge. 

Rick usually gives me a 20 to help me out each week. And she's willing to drive me to the bank to drop it in there and try to save me from a dreaded overdraft. Asdsghdgshdgshdghdg!

IF in the unusual event Rick shows up early enough, maybe around 4 or 5, we can get this over with today. If not, we'll have to wait until tomorrow and I'll just have to sit on my thumbs and hope they don't charge me by then. -_-

I've tried contacting them to cancel it. The email so far in unanswered. 

Even if they did, from what I googled, it looks like they can cancel it. but there is a dreadful 'no refund' policy.

If that is the case, I CAN file a claim with my bank to block the potential charge and hope for the best. 

I should probably do that sooner, rather than later. 

Either way I just want the fastest way right now to avoiding over-drafting my bank. Which is an extra thirty dollar charge. Not fun. I don't need that kinda drama in my life, please. :P

So yeah. For the moment. It's a bittersweet....moment. But only for the moment.

Still thankful to God and praising the Lord. I made a mistake. I'm sorry. Please help. :) Oi vey. I need to like, try not to worry.

And probably not be so assuming of the outcomes of this situation.

That'd be for the best.

Fun fact: I was literally gonna go for the two seats 'next' to the ones I wound up buying...but they SOLD seconds later. 

Quick, quick, quick. 

Also, I mistook what insurance was for. Why I selected it in the first place, besides thinking, naively, that there was no charge.

I thought it meant it secured the tickets I was buying in checkout before someone else could snag them, and clearly not. Not bright, I know. My brain was kinda wired on the fact that the tickets were clearly going fast. And a bit greedy. So yeah, this was all my own flub here (apologies again) and just gotta hope God can get me through, even if I don't really deserve it. In Jesus name, Amen!

Trusting God just makes me feel that much better. Like a blanket of calm hovering over my tense gut, if that makes sense.

EDIT: No. They weren't sold after all. :/ Certainly looked like it at the time! :P
Siggghhhhh. I'll be fine. I'll be fine. I'll be just fine.

There's always a bright side at the end of every trial and tribulation. Every situation. It always gets better. And it really does help to know that. Praise and thank the Lord!

April helped, too. By the way. I was making a huge deal over something that..isn't...a huge deal. It's an overdraft. It happens. We hope it doesn't 'have' to happen. But we'll be fine either way. Stop panicking.

2:50 p.m. And another reason to think positively. all part of a story. Even the bad stuff. Like, this is something I could just look back on and shake my head at. It's all part of the story, the good and the bad. It's all part of the journey. And I have faith in Christ, in God, that everything will work out in the end.

3:08 p.m. Okay, so God is just straight up amazing. You can't tell me He didn't pull something amazing here. Sigh. Of. Relief!

Was literally jumping a little and punching a fist in the air at Jesus. :P

Thank and Praise God/Jesus!

So! I called the insurance place and they said that due to a rare error, the insurance did not process.

Therefore, it is cancelled. 

I should NOT expect to get charged. And we're all good here, it seems. And I'm pretty certain I still got the tickets cause this is a totally separate company than ticketmaster. So. NO overdraft. NO insurance. NO worries. It's cancelled. I should be okay, now. Thank GOD! He's done it, again.

Now let's chill and try to not make that kind of mistake again, hmm?

P.S. Legend, by twentyonepilots, is in my head. Woooooooottt!!! The day just got better, yo. That's what happens when you trust God with your circumstances, people. It all comes out okay.

3:40 p.m. Watching Arrested Development with friends.

4:54 p.m. Today is a blessed day. Congrats, beans! :P

5:46 p.m. Mom invited me to come over for the weekend. I almost declined. It's that..loner side of me. But a voice inside said this was a thing I should do. Meant to be for a reason.  A blessing, even. So I agreed, and glad I did. She said she's coming later tonight and I look forward to it. A real break from the mundane days I've been experiencing lately.

Also, Scarlett is walking these days! :D

I need to pack an overnight bag, for sure. Can't wait to try out my Chromebook outside the house for once. Especially to see what the remote desktop feature is like over there.

God is good. Blessed days ahead, in Jesus mighty name. God is able to do abundantly above all we ask or think!

*Kinda wants to go hang out with Mom at the Goodwill outlet this weekend* I don't know. :P

6:52 p.m. Goodwill is approved. You're talking like a pound of clothing for less than three bucks, soo.... :)))

Showered, dressed, packed and good to go. Mom was oddly specific by saying she'd be here around 7:45 p.m. So I got some time to kill? *sips tea after brushing her teeth*

7:25 p.m. Rob and April left just now for Dawn's. 

FOR SOME REASON (and now that GIF above is totally accurate even though it was posted before the event.) 

I shared a link to a free game on humble bundle. To April. AND IT INCLUDED A SCREENSHOT OF HER CONVERSATION WITH ME ABOVE. It was kind of awkward, but I had to explain it was for journaling purposes, but 'thankfully' she took it well.

Looking forward to Mama/Daughter time this weekend. I could use some family time, couldn't I? :))) God knows, am I right?

11:22 p.m. Laying in bed with Mom snoring beside me. She really did show up close to 7:45 p.m. lol. We got some McDonalds on the way, her treat. I got some nuggets. And the forgot my buffalo sauce, but we got it. Her some sandwiches. They forgot my small fries and she was a bit peeved, but we went back and got them. I'd forgotten them entirely, but she remembered. Anyway, S'all good. 

We came home. Watched some of Avengers Infinity War (and she made it partially through) before she needed to sleep since a headache was kicking in.

I put on Supernatural, which is still going, and played with her puppy whose in her playroom (formerly a walk-in closet. She's really find of biting hands. O.O But Oi, what a day!

I finally got around to posting and Instagram post I wanted to wait until getting the tickets to display. I'm just not on my iPod enough to remember these days. The Chromebook is so much cooler, lol. It was just a screenshot of an earlier entry about me announcing that we were getting tickets. No big deal.

It's kinda funny. God works in mysterious ways. I only posted less than a month ago that I had the very sudden impulse that I wanted to see a twentyonepilots concert. And even started daydreaming, then actually dreaming of it, in that short period of time. Now, here we are. :)))

Mom's even talked of us getting a hotel since it falls on a Sunday that day and she needs to work, which adds a really nice bonus to this very exciting, blessed, venture.

While I love that these keyboard keys are pretty, maybe kinda, quiet. I had to turn the screen brightness up to see the keys though and I'm hoping that won't wake her. Eep.

Also I had a brownie with the nice elder lady that lives here, and we made light chat, I forget her name. Cause I'm not great at remembering names. Even if I have seen her quite a few times before.

The puppy's bell collar keeps jingling cause she's up and excited and it's so cute. Oi.

Long entry. I should cut this short at some point, eh? I'm delighted to say this day was far from ordinary, and thank God for family, cause they make the day a lot less boring, too. :P

God night. God Bless, Jesus loves, lives, saves! Woot!
