Today was a mostly positive day. I gave the dogs a short walk at 4:30AM which may seem outrageous, but it was the only time during the day that it was above freezing. However, the wind did hit hard, and I am assuming if it stun me, it would sting my two short hairs. The walk was less than 30 minutes. UPS came a little later than they normally did, but in turn – I got a few things that were ordered. Most of these things were for the dogs such as a new Kong Toy, two dog packs which they will carry the weights with, and dog shampoo. I also got a USB hub, but while reading the exterior, it mentioned it wasn’t meant for tablets – so it will be returned without me even opening it.
Another item I received was the Nexus 7 – LTE Edition. While I will be paying more in the long run with T-Mobile, it is broken into 24 payments of $15 each. This is acceptable especially since the tablet has the base 200MB of LTE connectivity with throttling afterwards and a $10 credit to offset the $10 monthly fee. Those whom might have read my First Impression blog post will assume I will be keeping this tablet. In a matter of fact, I ordered a case that has a Bluetooth Keyboard integrated which will allow the Nexus 7 to function a little as a productivity tool. The hub I am returning will offset some of the cost of the case.

Not much happened today. I had to run some errands which I decided to do that as early as possible – so I left at 7:20AM. I went to the 2 places that I needed to go to, and had a line at both of them. In turn, I had a 45 minute layover before my next bus (yes, I just missed the bus I had to take). In turn, I had something for breakfast before catching the 9:15AM bus.
Once I got home, I made a couple of phone calls, and addressed the reason in which I had to go to Downtown so early in the morning. Afterwards, the dogs got their walk, and fed. It would also seem as if the owner found a new tenant for the second floor apartment. This will be the fourth neighbor I had since I been here for two years.

Today was like much most holidays. No bus service, and nothing special. One nice thing was that my landlord did bring over a dinner. I obviously took it, and shared the ham with the dogs. I however took the turkey and stuffing.
On another note, I received my SSI benefits early, but it didn’t matter much since no transaction will take place until tomorrow. However, nonetheless, I still sent the electronic orders to pay my bills. My bank account started with $4.10 – then went to $714.86, and tomorrow, it will be down to $12.78.

Not much happened today. I took the two for a walk early in the morning, and went to the grocery store to get some groceries that were desperately needed. Afterwards, I went to pick up my prescription before heading home. While at home, I watched a couple of videos, and did some work on a web site. Otherwise, the day has been pretty calm.
As for plans for tomorrow, I will likely be home with the exception of walking the dogs. I will also have to get everything together to go to a dental appointment which will be on Friday. Otherwise, nothing really planned.
Not much happened today. I started the dogs early since it was expected to get hot. I also needed to get to the store early to get a few things needed. This will include soap, toilet paper, and I tried to get flea prevention medicine for the dogs, but the few places that will have it didn’t. This will mean a trip to the Petco tomorrow is likely.
I got back with the dogs making a mess. I gave them free roam of the apartment, but they tore a plastic bag that had the laundry in it, and also a wash towel. This will mean that I will have to put them into the kitchen when I leave tomorrow.

Today was a very quiet day. Still woke up a bit too early for my taste. However, I tried to make the best of it. When I woke, I took my bath, and started the PC to catch up on some podcasts. I then wrote my post for the day, and started to prepare to work on another post.
There was nothing in the email, and the day was a bit quiet. I made some additional calls in my hunt for a new place, and had to make another call to another person. I then updated my media players, watched a couple of shows on Hulu.
