Not much happened today. For the most part, it was a waste. I walked the dogs early in the morning, and while I wanted to walk them in the afternoon when I returned, it was raining, so that wasn’t possible. I had a dental checkup which went as expected. I went to Chris’ place, to pick up some of the phone bill money owed, but never received it. I then went to Downtown to get cleats on my shoes before returning home to feed the dogs.

As for plans for tomorrow, no real plans. I will likely remain home for the most part. I would have like to put the money that needed to go into the bank, but this will not be possible.


Not much happened today. The landlord came by to fix the upstairs bathroom which was leaking into my kitchen. I also had to go to Downtown to get cleats on, and make some copies. I then then had to go to the dentist, and if I would have brought the shopping cart, I could have picked up the dog food as well. However, this didn’t happen.

As for plans for tomorrow, I will have to go to the grocery store which I need to get dog food. I will also have to wait for UPS which has a delivery from Amazon. I will also have to do a couple of things as well.


Today was a very tedious day. I called the head Social Security Office which they told me I will have to go down to the office. I also had to get blood work at the request of my PCP, and cleats on my shoes. I paid the full fare bus fare to get into Downtown early only so I could wait 45 minutes at Quest Diagnostics to be seen. After that, I went to the Social Security Office which I was seen by the person I needed to speak with about 10:30AM (90 minutes later). After that, I got new cleats on my shoes, and then went to Rite-Aid to pick up the last of my prescriptions. As usual, they didn’t fill them until I got there, and by the time they finished, I had to make a decision to deposit the money in the bank, and wait an hour, or deposit the money later.

When I got home, I let the dogs out, answered a web message, and fed the dogs. I then prepared to deposit the money and get some groceries. I waited until rush hour service which meant a shorter wait for the bus home. I finished the day walking the dogs in the evening, and writing this blog post. However, much of my day was wasted.

A bit has happened today. I wasn’t able to get the TV show I was looking forward to getting, but I managed to take care of all of the other issues I needed to. I went to Downtown to get cleats on my shoes. I also went to my cellular carrier which I acquired a phone for my oldest nephew which Andrea will be responsible for the bill, and the phone payments. While I was acquiring the phone, I also paid the bill using some of the credit card balance.

As for plans for tomorrow, not much planned. I will likely remain home, and walk the dogs in the morning. The next event I will have is for Monday. I also received the phone bill due from Andrea which will be deposited into the bank on Monday.


A bit happened today. I left about 9AM to go to Downtown to make a deposit. In addition, I took $20 from the check which was used to repay a cash bill. After that, I went to the shoe repair shop to get cleats added to my shoes. I took the subway LRT to the Northside, and walked to the grocery store to purchase bread, and a couple of other groceries. After that, I took the bus home which I let the dogs out, and fed them. They had their walk early in the morning.

As for plans for tomorrow, no plans. I will be home and have no intention on going anywhere other than walking the dogs. Things for the most part will be quiet.


Not much happened today. I went to Downtown to get cleats for the shoes. After that, I went to the grocery store, but couldn’t get everything I needed. I learned of a place that might be cheaper in buying dog food, so that will be something to consider.

Malak and Talisa made a mess of the place, and ruined a cushion. This of course will make things harder for me. As a result, they are not allowed on the couch until I feel they will respect their boundaries.

Not much happened today. I was in a lot of pain, and the fact I couldn’t sleep last night didn’t help any. However, I did have to go to Downtown to get cleats placed on my shoes. Due to the pain, and drowsiness (from not sleeping), I wanted to get what needed to be done, and return home. Once I got home, I tried to wake myself up a little, and eventually walked the dogs. Malak seen a few dogs during out walk, and he didn’t seem to like them too much which got him to lunging. Most of the time, he is rather well behaved on the walk. I will have a head collar that I got for Talisa already ordered and should receive it in a couple of days.

I watched a couple of shows on Hulu, and a few podcasts, but otherwise didn’t do much this day. I am hoping to be a bit more productive tomorrow though. And as for plans for tomorrow, I am considering if feeling better to go and finish the remainder of my laundry which will include some straggler clothes, bathroom towels, and the clothes I wore when I went to the Laundromat. If not, I will have to do this another day. It is not imperative as the most important things were done in the first load.


A bit happened today. I had to go to Downtown which from there, I had to get cleats installed on my shoes, notify the Department of Public Assistance of the change in rent. I also had to get documentation noting that I no longer had a bank account with a bank I used to use, and provide that with Section-8.

After that, I went to Andrea, and Chris’ place where Alexis gave me a birthday gift which was nice of her. She also liked my new phone, and was attracted with the “sparkly” look on the backside, although I wouldn’t call the pattern sparkly.

A bit happened today. First, I had to go to Downtown. While there, I spent my last $3 on getting cleats placed on my shoes. Next, I went to the post office to not get the check I should have from One Main Financial. Needless to say, I will have to call them about that tomorrow. After that, I took a bus to my doctor’s appointment. I was able to get in a little early but had to wait for a route 1 to get me back to the North side. I went to fill my prescription, and after more than an hour of waiting, it would seem they didn’t have it. I was told to go to the Rite-Aid on Pennsylvania Avenue which of course cost more money for bus fare only to find out the prescription can’t be filled until Friday. So, there was 3 hours of my time wasted.

I finally made it home let the dogs out, and fed them. However, with as much pain as I am in, I am not likely to want do do much. I didn’t even have the will to pull the sleeper out. As for plans for tomorrow, I will have to call One Main Financial to find out where my check is. Otherwise, I will expect that I won’t be doing much as I am sure the events of today would be a drain on me for a day or two.


A bit has happened today. First, the last of my loan payment was paid today. This means, next month, I will be able to devote that money to another issue that should be addressed. However, on a more personal level, I had a number of things that needed to be done. First, I needed to get cleats on my shoes. After that, I needed to go to Katsur Dental to get panoramic X-Rays since my insurance will only cover for one every 5 years. After the pickup of the X-Ray copy, I then went to Petco which I had to get a couple of things for the dogs. After that, I took a bus to the Northside, and dropped off the copy, and waited for a bus home.

Once I got home, I took the dogs for a walk, although I was in too much pain to take them for an evening walk. I spent a little bit of time working on a web site, and watched a few videos. After that, I prepared dinner, but accidently dropped it. Rather than spending another 45 minutes making it again – I simply just made a sandwich. I closed the evening with a bath, and got ready for bed.
