Week 40 – 2014

This week started quiet, but ended with a little bit of hectic activity. This is because the first of the month came in the middle of the week. On Wednesday, I paid my rent, electric, and my credit cards. On Thursday, my credit card payments was acknowledge which I then used a part of the credit to pay my Internet, and Phone (which is my normal behavior). On some worse news, my only set of headphones are not working effectively which means I will have to try to acquire a new pair which means about $25 that I didn’t plan for.

As for plans for next week, I will have to eventually acquire groceries, and should expect money from Andrea, and Chris for their portion of the phone bill. And with about 2 months left in this year, I need to address a document that I will like to submit to city, county, and state government as well as PAT (Port Authority Transit). The reason is I feel if you are going to complain about something, you should have a reasonable and realistic solution proposed to solve what is being complained about. So, much of my effort will be to that document and the companion web site.

Week 27 – 2014

This was a busy week. The first of the month fell in this week which will explain why. I was out most of the days in some degree, and had been a bit busy throughout. First, I spent a little on my credit card to get new socks and briefs. I was lacking in socks without holes, and my briefs were falling apart. I swear though, underclothes are getting too expensive. On the first, my benefits came, although there was some delay. I was able to address most things quickly though. I paid my rent, and electric bill. I then transferred the rest to my two Capital One cards. The Quicksilver got the money for the phone bill, and Internet service. The reason for this is because this card provides a cash back on purchases made. While nothing to brag about, it is better than nothing. However, even though I paid the bills before the banks open on the first, the money didn’t get recognized until the third.

I also decided to buy a new phone. I of course used T-Mobile’s EIP in-house credit which seems to rival my two credit cards put together. This is rather depressing, but I am not complaining. I was considering trading in the old phone for credit to the new phone, but they only wanted to offer me $20 for my near perfect condition Nexus 4. For that T-Mobile, FU! Needless to say, I kept the Nexus 4. It is now being used as a house phone which therefore retires my old cordless phone from service.

Week 26 – 2014

Not much happened this week. I received a little of the money Chris owed me, but not as much as I wanted. I deposited the money into the bank which was then transferred to the two credit cards, and a portion to the Google Wallet. In addition, I decided to upgrade my phone from the Nexus 4 to the Nexus 5. I also learned the hard way that even Nexus devices with T-Mobile is locked to T-Mobile. I requested an unlocked code for my Nexus 4 which the last payment will be paid in July’s bill. The first payment for my Nexus 5 will be in August. Last this week, Chris came by on Saturday for a couple of hours.

As for plans for the next week, I will be expecting not only my normal benefits, but a rent rebate deposit. This is due on July 1, which the money will be used to pay for the dog’s annual visit, and the rest to my credit cards to reduce the money owed. I am also expecting a BAWI site to be registered which I will start to work on (hopefully). I had been a bit lazy on my sites this week, and hope to make up for it in the coming week.

Week 19 – 2014

Not much happened this week. I done a little work on my various sites. I also took the dogs out for a couple of long walks this week. I finished paying my bills including my Electric Bill. Andrea paid most of the bill for her phone which was used to make another payment to my credit card. I also had to buy some groceries, and I ordered dog food for the month. Not much else went on. I did receive my food benefits, but will be waiting until I have to go close to the grocery store before buying food. This is why I bought some groceries early.

As for plans for next week, I will have two doctor appointments, one being for the ear which started draining again, while the other is a dental cleaning appointment. Also, with Google terminating XMPP support with GTalk, this will mean I will have to make some adjustments with my home phone. I will be doing this at the last minute to reduce the cost of using the SIP provider. Otherwise, not much is planned for the week to come.

Week 10 – 2014

This week was a little busy. I had to get dog food before my appointment. I had my appointment on Wednesday, but didn’t have enough for both dogs for when Monday came. Therefore, I left at 7:25AM to get the 7:30AM bus to get me to the grocery store. It is actually nice to get to the store this early. While I got dog food, I also picked up some food to hold over until mid next week. Wednesday, I went to the dentist which I just needed some fillings. In addition, I tried to get a different type of dentures approved which didn’t happen.

I also ordered what I thought to be a Bluetooth Keyboard. In addition to the keyboard, I ordered a 6” micro-USB cable, and a case that was supposed to function as a stand for my Sero 7. The keyboard was for the Nexus 7 so I could give it a bigger role. However, the keyboard failed to be a Bluetooth Keyboard. After contacting Amazon with this issue, I received an RMA. I did informed them that this was one of the results I received when I searched for Bluetooth Keyboard. However, I had to print out a UPS label which meant I needed to go to Downtown to print the label (since I have no printer), and since the keyboard will not fit in a drop box, I went to Manchester to drop off at the UPS customer service station. Taking a 13 there, I had to walk a bit – and to return, I was able to take the 18 which I then transferred to the LRT line at Allegheny Station. I had to wait, so I decided to get lunch. Considering I have only a little bit of food, this was just a pain on the wallet so to say.

2014-01-31

Not much happened today. I received my benefits which was then used to pay my bills. My electric bill was higher than I would have liked, so I wasn’t able to put as much as I would have wanted on my credit card. Obviously my minimum balance is still paid (minimum×2+Interest+Monthly Recurring). Alexis got her new SIM card active so she is now able to use her new phone. In addition, the dogs got a walk today, and the pipes unfroze.

Not much else happened today. And no real plans for tomorrow. I will have to walk the dogs as expected, but otherwise – nothing much to go on. Sometime this weekend, I will like to do my laundry, but will wait until after I see my brother, or on Sunday, whichever is to come first.

Not much happened today. The dogs got their rawhide sticks which they get one every few days to keep their teeth clean. In addition, I had to go to Downtown to get some copies done. At which point, I will need to address those documents. I also needed to go to the bank to make a deposit. Most of that money will be going to the credit card. Speaking of credit card, I had received a credit line increase which will actually help out a lot.

Once I got home, I dealt with the documents that I needed to deal with, and went on Amazon where I got a few things including a new Kong Toy, Shampoo, two dog back packs (for when weather gets better), a USB hub which will be charging the increasing collection of items that charge via USB, and a blanket. Obviously this was done on the credit card which I will have to make some major payments in return. However, everything will have a big purpose to serve.

A bit happened today. First, I had to go to the bank to make a deposit that needed to be immediately addressed. I also went to a court hearing I was scheduled to attend, but it seemed as if it was cancelled. Next, I went to the post office which I needed to get postage stamps which is on the behalf of someone else which was addressed already. Last, I had to go grocery shopping which I bought what I hope to be almost a month’s worth of groceries.Simply put, I don’t have cash to spend on food this month, so I have to rely exclusively on my benefits.

I did managed to get a hold of my brother who told me that he will address part of an issue he caused this weekend. I also managed to receive a call from Andrea which told me next week. I am assuming that from now on, I have to give everyone a zero tolerance policy. It’s a shame I have to treat family as such.

2013-08-26

Not much happened today. I waited for someone who said he was going to stop down to drop something off which he never showed. This is actual not that unusual as he takes a week or so to do what he says he will. It would have been nice as I could have done more than one thing at a time.

In the afternoon, I went to the bank to make a deposit. This deposit doesn’t grant me much money as almost all of it will go to the credit card account. I am still in starvation mode which means I have no discretionary spending. On top of that, I still need to address the 3 year ADP warranty for my notebook.
