So it turns out that Arizona has one of the highest rates of identity theft in the US. I guess I can understand it as crime here is so over the top and everywhere you look. I went to the band to open a new account with my first check from my new job. My old NH bank doesn't exist out here unfortunately.

Well, turns out that for the first month of my account they put a hold on every check I deposit. This means that I can't access my money for a like 2 weeks! Geesh! It seems a little over the top. I wish I had realized this sooner because now I'm broke even though I've got money in my account.

Such frustration!

At least it's Thursday (and my birthday) which means I fly home tonight. Santa Barbara is awesome and I'm so glad I've had such a productive time here in such a beautiful place. But, I can't wait to get home to my little love nest where I can unpack the 10 boxes of books that arrived while I was gone. I'm looking forward to laying out by the pool and maybe playing some tennis with my sweetie.

However, it looks like we might be having Spamish Rice for Thanksgiving if I don't get this money situation figured out!
