it has been quite a day....
I woke up extra early this morning...
so I decided to go to the office early...
get started on my pile of paperwork....
 

I turned on my email account...
sent an email...then my account closed...
when I logged on again...
it said suspicious activity on my account...
reset your password...
so I did...the message kept coming up....
I tried to find a number to call AOL...
well one was to another country...
wanting to access my computer...
nope wasn't going to do that...
tried resetting my password...a dozen times...
finally after wasting atleast and hour and a half...
I found a good phone number...
it was taken care of in a few minutes....
then the fun began....my account had been hacked...
I had 72 emails....of mail be sent back to me...
I had people emailing, texting... me letting me know...
they had received crazy...email from me...
so I spent quite a while...apologizing...and explaining...
now why do people hack accounts???
most people realize they are spam...
and never look at them...just delete them...
so all it does is cause havoc for others...

technology can be oh so grand...
but it can also be a major pain in the backside...
Tomorrow will be a better day...
Tomorrow will be a better day...
I'm repeating this...till I finally believe it...

the world is crazy and full of crazy people bent on doing evil to people they don't even know, just because they can.... hope you are ok today.

Enjoyed the circus photos.

I don't know why people hack expect to see what information they can get on you. I'm amazed you found a number for AOL. Over the years you can hardly ever talk to someone. Gmail will turn you off and then you will get a new code sent to your phone. I'm glad you were able to take care of it so quickly.

And you were all set to dive into the paperwork, and waste all that time!!!
I know what you mean about tomorrow will be a better day - I spent all of my first day at school saying that!!! And yesterday was better. I think today will be even better!!
Hope all is straightened out now!!

I've always wondered what kind of mindset a hacker has. So, so mean. I hope it's all fixed and that it doesn't happen again!!!!
