July 2015

This month has been a continuation on seeing a psychologist which through addressing other issues of my life will hopefully reduce the pain. I did wanted to take the dogs for their annual check up, but this didn’t work out the way I wanted it too. Got some work on the ACTA Document done, although, still a bit of effort that needs to be done. Otherwise – this month has been relatively quiet. And it is months like this where it is a struggle to get a paragraph for the whole month on why I no longer do daily or weekly life updates.

Week 51 – 2014

Not much happened this week. This week had Christmas which is important to my brother’s family, but much like most days for me. I did go to Chris’ since he wasn’t going to Butler PA with his girlfriend, and the children. This was due to room in the car. I brought the dogs with me to his place, and obviously walked there and back. I left about 11AM, and got home about 9PM. A friend of mine asked for my address which I sent it to her. However for the most part – this has been a quiet week.

As for plans for next week, I will have my income coming in, which I will have to pay my bills and rent. I am expecting a minor increase of money for 2015 (about $20/month), but this will barely enough to cover my transportation cost much less anything significant. However, as always – I will make due.

Week 48 – 2014

Not much happened this week. Being the end of the month, I stayed home much of the time. Of course, the dogs got walked, and I went to the grocery store to get a couple of essentials. Otherwise, there wasn’t much that happened. As for plans for the coming week, I will have an appointment, and will be receiving my benefits. Of course with that, it means I will be paying rent and bills. Needless to say, it is one of those weeks not worth commenting about.

Week 42 – 2014

Not much happened this week. Andrea, and Chris had some problems which meant he spent a few days with me. Otherwise, not much else happened. I got flea prevention medicine for the dogs which I will use in a couple of weeks. Otherwise, not much else happened. I wasn’t as productive as I would like to have been with my document that I have been working on, but this should hopefully change come next week. As for plans for next week, I will have to do some things that some people I deal with won’t like, but this is their consequences. I will also have a couple of errands to address which I am going to try to do everything at one time.

Week 34 – 2014

This week has been very little of productivity. I took the dogs for a walk almost every day, but for the most part – I have been in a bit of pain. I have also been working on a document which I will like to publish in a month or two. Otherwise, little much else has happened. On a side note, I acquired a Nexus 16GB which will hopefully be a gift for my brother, and his family. However, my brother will have to pay the money he owes me from other issues, otherwise – the tablet will for my own benefit. The only reason I acquired it when I really don’t have the funds is due to the fact the tablet was almost half of the new price. Therefore, if it becomes a gift for my brother’s family, then it would have been an investment worthwhile. Otherwise, it will function as a second tablet in the home.

As for plans for next week, not much will be planned as the end of the month is coming. I am still waiting for Assurant to refund the money from return of their inferior tablet they tried to pawn off on me. I will also need to add funds to my Connect Card especially since I have will have a number of things I will need to address in the first week of the coming month.

Week 31 – 2014

This week was the last week of the month, and therefore not much happened. I was able to give the dogs a long walk, and had to go to the Grocery store, but otherwise – not much happened. The first of the month came on Friday which meant my benefits came on that day. I paid my bills with exception of my Verizon bill which they manage to put an inaccurate amount on the bill again. I am at the point where if they don’t fix this problem, I will reduce my speeds – especially since some times I don’t even see a benefit of the “50MBPS” connection.

As for plans for the next week, I should be getting money owed for their portion of the bill from both Andrea and Chris. I should also be able to hopefully pay my Internet bill, and will be expecting a bag of dog food to come in. Otherwise, not much is planned.

Week 30 – 2014

Not much happened this week. I went to my brother’s place a couple of time, one with the dogs. Otherwise, I took them out for a walk when the weather was good, and when I wasn’t in a lot of pain. I also did some work on a site that is in BETA that will soon be a part of a new domain. For the most part, this week has been relatively quiet. As for plans for next week, not much is planned – especially considering it is the end of the month. I will hopefully get the unlock code for the phone I wanted to sell. If not, I will have to call T-Mobile and demand something in return. I will also hopefully be able to get some of the money that will be needed for Talisa’s test.

Week 29 – 2014

Not much happened this week, but what did happened wasn’t for the best. I had a couple of minor things that needed to be done. It rained a few times which reduced the options of walking the dogs. They did get some long walks though. On Thursday, I took the two to the vets for an annual checkup, and vaccinations. The vet is concerned for Talisa due to the hair loss she has in the back side. He wants me to do a CBC-Chem and a Thyroid test ASAP.  The tests will cost $100 + transit to get her there and back.

For this, the landlord was very kind in offering me $25 for the tests. He said I could take it out of the rent, and considering I pay $30/month in pet fees, it’s not much of a loss on the actual rent. Someone I know needs their phone replaced. This person owes $25 to begin with. I took what was Gage’s phone (which is my phone), replaced it with a better phone which I paid half down, and put the other half on EIP. This should now allow me to get the old phone unlocked, and sold to the person for the down payment I made on Gage’s new phone + the money owed. This will mean $75 + $25. This will just mean I will have to get the money to transport her. I of course still have to sell the phone, but at least it will be something. In turn, my nephew has a better device, and this person that owes $25 will have a reason to pay the money owed.

And the Craziness Concludes

Today (2014-07-14) was a crazy day. First, I had to run a couple of errands. This led me to walk the dogs early in the morning. I then boarded a bus to go to Downtown at 8AM. Out of this, I went to find out shipping costs for an item so I will know when I get a similar item. I also got an email from an eBay seller to tell me that what I asked for wasn’t what I got. So, that was a thorn in the side. I also went to FedEx to make a few copies, and get a receipt scanned to .pdf. After the post office, and FedEx, I waited in line to get into Social Security to get verification of my income. I went home, walked the dogs again, and went back out after I dropped off everything I done. I went to the pharmacy to pick up something there, and made it back home.

Part of what needed to be done was fold some documents which then had to be stamped, and prepared to send. The income verification would have been among them, but the envelope from the company was defective which meant I had to call them, and get an address I can send mail too. That will have to be done when I get the chance. I will have that document and what needs to be done prepared beforehand. The receipt is for my Nexus 5 which I chose to spend $90 for a 2 year agreement as compared to what I would have to pay with  T-Mobile. I sent an IM to the person that was supposed to have the phone about the defect. I also sent a message to help someone, wrote two blog postings on my Technology Blog, and a posting on this blog (other than this one), and concluded the day with dinner, and ending the evening.

Week 28 – 2014

This week has been a hectic week. I took the dogs out for two long walks which I might have over done it a little. I also got a friend request from a half-sister. If the past gives any clue to the future, it will not be productive. However, I am giving a chance again. I received a cheap phone and an micro-SD card which is intended for a friend, but it will seem as if according to the UPS web site – shipping the phone will cost 3 times as much as the phone is worth. Needless to say, I will have to look to other shippers. I will be checking with FedEx and USPS on Monday.

Otherwise, not much else happened this week. I finished a web site, and will soon work on a new one. I will also want to do some updates on a couple of other sites that are in the works. In addition, there is some work being done on a site that is not yet in existence. As for plans for next week, I will have to go to the Social Security Administration, the FedEx Store, and the Post Office in Downtown. If I win the domain, I will have a new domain in my inventory. If not, I will be refunded the pre-registration. I also have to take the two dogs for their annual check up. Thankfully, Nicole who gave Malak is able, and willing to take me there. Otherwise, it will would have been a bit of a long walk to get them there.
