June 2017

This month could have been better. I severed ties with my brother and his ex-girlfriend. If one was to talk to him, he would make it sound as if it was over one incident. In reality, it is over 20 years of misbehavior, and the incidents in question are just the straw that broke the camel’s back so to say. The first week also had an outing on the behalf of someone else, and two appointments – all of which took a bit out of me. Nonetheless, I made due as usual.

The second week – mostly was spent trying to reduce the issues of the first week. I did have to go to the grocery store. The upstair’s neighbor passed her responsibility for the cat on to me. I already changed my passphrase, and will no longer allow her to have access to my network. I am sure she will not be happy about it, but I care not. As for the kitten, the cat went to animal control Continue reading June 2017

January 2015

New year, and new challenges. I was able to get my food assistance benefits corrected, but now they are about half of what they should be. This will mean that I will have to either push more money to my food budget, or decrease my food consumption. My income however went up $20 and waiting on the repercussions of that in other resources I have to rely on. As always, I will make due with or without. This is a simple fact of life. Since things can’t change, it is a matter of acceptance or not.

This will mean that the new domains acquired last year will likely expire. I will have to make some adjustments to what I can or want to do in life. In turn, I will try to be more active with Twitter, which will send posts to Facebook.This will help satisfy any one that has a desire to know now demand with life. I will continue working on my ACTA Plan site even though I hadn’t made my deadline. The keyword is my deadline.

Week 12 – 2014

This week was a pretty dull and quiet week. I had to go to Downtown to handle something on the behalf of someone else. I also had received a call from LiHEAP which I should be receiving something from them soon to give to the landlord. While I was in Downtown, I bought the needed postage to take care of that. Chris also stopped by and spent the night, but otherwise – this has been a relatively quiet week.

On some other notes, I did have a problem with my Verizon FiOS router which made a 10 minute job take the entire afternoon. Needless to say, I am not happy about that. I also received the Amazon Kindle (basic model without ads). The only reason I was able to get this is because I do it across 6 monthly payments. I wrote a first impression review about it. I also watched episode 14 of The Walking Dead, and all I have to say is poor Lizzie, but in some instance I seen it coming. When Chris watched the episode, he was a bit shocked and astounded. He didn’t see it coming at all.

Today was a very long day. I left about 9AM and didn’t get home until almost 5:30PM. Look at all of the things I do for family. First, Andrea needed a replacement phone, so I needed to make those arrangements. This was done in Downtown, and while I was dealing with the phone, I also paid the bill. Once I finished that, I sent Chris’ defective phone which was to be sent via UPS.

I then arrived at Andrea’s place which my youngest nephew for the second day in a row has been nothing but mean and miscreant to me. I am not taking it personally, but if it was my child, there would have to be a bit more discipline with him. I even caught him kicking Nippers (the family dog) which I really set him straight about that.

Not much happened today. I took the dogs for a couple of walks, and the neighbor upstairs forgot her key to get in, so I let her in. Otherwise, things have been relatively quiet. As for plans for tomorrow, I will have to make a couple of phone calls, and I will want to give the dogs a good long walk. Otherwise, not much is planned for tomorrow.

A bit happened today, and very little of that being good. I went to collect the money via a Money Gram. It ended up being that I had to get the receipt and go to two additional places which made my trip starting at 9AM and I didn’t get home until almost 1PM. Once I got home, I took my medicine and took the two for a walk. I was in too much pain to do any cooking though.

I also helped someone who wasn’t familiar with the buses whom needed advise on going from Robinson Township to Shadyside. Otherwise, I didn’t do much. As for plans for tomorrow, I will have to do what I was supposed to do today, but couldn’t. This will include going to Downtown to get a document printed, and eventually mailed out. Otherwise, little else is planned.

A bit happened today. I had to go to a doctor’s appointment. This took some time, and I will have to go next month as well. After my appointment, I went to someone’s house to pick up a PC that they say needs to be worked on. It originally came with Windows XP, but there is a locked version of Linux on it now. The owner asked me to try to get Windows back on. I will work on that tomorrow. After that, I headed home with Chris who stopped by about the time I got there.

As for plans for tomorrow, I will have to make a couple of phone calls possibly. I will also have to get to get my prescription filled. Other than the prescription, and what work I can do on the PC, there will be no real plans.

Not much has happened today. Chris stopped by for a couple of hours, and I been doing some marathon watching on Netflix. A local person asked me if knew of where to get dobermans a few days ago, and I was able to give him a link for that. Otherwise, not much went on.

As for plans for tomorrow, no real plans for tomorrow. I will have to go to the grocery store sometime this week, but not sure what day. I will wait until the last moment, or most likely Friday. I doubt I will be able to wait until Monday though when I have a doctor’s appointment.

Today was a bit chaotic. Andrea’s phone broke, and she lost her SIM card. Since I am the owner of her account, I had to go and get a new SIM. She is using my old My Touch which doesn’t serve me well, but will serve her which is better than nothing. The alternative was to put $70 down, and make $10 per month on a $250 phone. There would have been an upgrade fee which means I (she) would be charged for the privilege of purchasing a phone from a company that already gets about $150 per month.

However, with me trying to show her how to use and problems with buses and taxis, I left my home about 1:45PM, and didn’t get home until about 8PM. Thankfully, the dogs held their urine, and feces in until I made it home which was good. I just wished that they could have been trusted for free roam of the home.

Not much happened today. I did some work on one of my sites which I want to finish when possible. I will likely do some more tomorrow. I also made a couple of phone calls, and did a little personal work.

I also spent a little time in Second Life. It would seem that my great building project has reduced me to about 700 Prims (1900 starting off), and most of my structures hadn’t even been furnished yet. I will want to rez one more skybox, but may have to make a sacrifice along the lines of something.
