The first week was hectic. First, I managed to consolidate all of my bills into one loan. This will hit me a bit, but will hopefully be able to reduce the stress of the debt I had – some being as high as 27%. Also, in the first week, I received my rent rebate which was transferred to my new checking account. I also had a couple of appointments and had to go to the community center to collect my food from their food bank.
The second week, I got my food stamps which of course – I used to get the majority of my food. I also took Malak in for his annual checkup. Because of everything beforehand, it was a bit hard on me. I made due as normally. I also changed ISPs from Comcast to Verizon FiOS. I am going to keep that as long as possible, however, I need it for at least 4 months, otherwise, the change will be for naught. The reason of the change is Comcast will not allow current customers to get Internet Essentials. Malak also got his annual checkup. He is 80lb of muscle, and relatively healthy for his age. The vet recommended fish oil capsules to help with any joint issues he might have in the future. He is at least 6 years old now, so that is a reasonable concern. As expected, he tested negative for heartworm. Continue reading July 2017
Today was a busy day. I had to go to Bellevue to get the soles of my shoes replaced. This took about an hour of waiting, however there was also the time of riding the bus. Thankfully the bus on the way home connected with the Route 4 within moments which was good. In turn, I left a little before 9AM to catch the 9AM bus, and got home about 12:30PM. After I got home, I walked the dogs, and fed them.
As for plans for tomorrow, no plans really – being a Saturday. The next time I will have to go out or address something will be on Monday when I have a doctor’s appointment, and must also address some copies that will need to be handled. This however will be for another day.
A few things happened today. I went to get new soles on my shoes which of course took a while. I first have to take two buses to get there, and two buses back. One bus trip is about 45 minutes. I also had to pick up my mail. Out of my mail, only two items left with me. One of them was Vonage trying to get me to go back with them. This is not something I was interested in, considering the problems I had. After questioning the sales rep, they still seem as shady as always, even though they are legitimate company.
Not much else went on today. I tried to get a hold of Chris, and tried to place an order with a company for a service – but they wouldn’t accept it. I called them, and they decided to have me jump through hoops. I told them to cancel the account. I finished the day with going with a competitor, and left it be at that.

Not much happened today, although the morning was a bit to do. After I exercised and fed the dogs, they had to go to the kennel cages as I needed to go to the shoes repaired. Thankfully, a friend was able to drive me there. This shaved a minimum of a couple of hours off of my time that I would have been out which was really good since it took about an hour to repair the shoes.
Once I got home, I let them out in the back yard, and then they had the opportunity to play some as well. I watched a couple of shows, and took it easy for the rest of the evening.

Not much happened today. I spent a little bit of time trying to get some work on the site done. I also watched a few recordings. I was in a bit of pain, and the soles are diminished, so I couldn’t take the dogs out. However, I am working twice as hard to get them to utilize the treadmill. It is a little tricky as I never taught a dog to use a treadmill before. In my opinion, Talisa needs it the most as she is still overly excited and full of energy even with two daily hourly walks.
As for my hunt on cages, I am seeking the best price. After looking on Craigslist, and not finding anything useful, and got an email for one offering a large cage for $50 without a bottom plate, and I will pick up, it seems discouraging there is one from Amazon for $1.22 (including S&H) with a bottom plate, and new. Since it will be shipped to me, I will obviously not have to go to pick it up. It would come to my home instead of the PO Box. I will write to the person that wrote me and give him my final answer.
