Week 39 – 2014

Not much happened this week considering it is the end of the month. I did a little work on someone’s PC which in turn allowed me to earn a little money. That cash went adding funds on my transit card, and getting groceries. I also did some pre-work for a new site which will be coming online. I know I still have a number of other sites that needs to have work on them, but I guess I just can’t keep to one thing. As for plans for the coming week, I will be getting my benefits in the middle of the week which of course will have to be used to pay bills, and thankfully not have to worry about addressing my transit card. However, not much else is planned.


Not much happened today. I had to go to do a couple of errands, and was expecting to pick up money from Chris, but didn’t get that. Instead, I had a couple of errands including getting postage, pharmacy, and the bank. Once I deposited the money in the bank, I transferred most of it to my Google Wallet. I then returned home from everything, walked the dogs, and fed them. After the meal, I did some work on a PC where the person wanted me to do a couple of things which took about an hour. I returned the PC to the owner, and then spent a little time watching a few videos. As for plans for tomorrow, not much else is planned. I will have to do a couple of things that I couldn’t get done hopefully on Monday. Tomorrow being the weekend – there is nothing I will likely be doing.


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.


Not much happened today. The kitchen sink had a leak which the landlord came to fix right away. I also gave the dogs a brushing, and worked on a web site which I should be finished soon. Otherwise, not much happened today, and it has been relatively quiet.

Not much is planned for tomorrow. I will be home all day with the exception of walking the dogs. I will also likely watch a couple of shows, and send an email to a friend. Not much otherwise to do.


Not much happened today. I walked the dogs after it rained. The landlord fixed the door again, and I spent much of the day home. I watched a few videos, and did a little work on one of the sites. I also brushed the dogs which was normal. The next door neighbor gave some dog treats which was very nice of him. Obviously, they will get them on occasion rather than regularly.

No plans for tomorrow. However, the next week will be busy with a phone interview with regards to my SSI, and a doctor’s appointment. I will also have to pick up my prescription, make a deposit, and go grocery shopping. Thankfully, this will not be tomorrow, nor all in one day.


Today was a serious day. After walking the dogs, I had to go for my dental appointment (yes, I had two in a row). This one was to work on some fillings, but found that a one of my bad teeth was becoming a growing concern, so they extracted the one of concern, and the other two (scheduled to be extracted) as well. The one that was of concern took about 20 minutes to remove, and required stitching.

After the surgery, I had to go to the grocery store to get dog food. I also needed to get some soup since I won’t be eating solids for a couple of days. I returned home, and eventually fed the dogs – although I didn’t ate till a bit later. I also took a nap to fight the numbness, and did a little bit of work on the documents. Last, the evening was spent making a phone call to my brother who won’t be able to pay me for the phone until Saturday (due Friday). Since the bill is already paid (a week ago), him and I are going to have to have a talk about that.

Today while rather uneventful has been a slightly busy day. Chris was due to have a replacement phone that came to me as I am the account holder. In turn, the phone will be passed to him, and the G2x he was using for about a month will go to Andrea. However, a few things had to happen first. The phone needed to charge, and I needed to install updates. To minimize interruption while assuring the phone transfer will take place properly, I waited until after 8PM to change the SIM. The reason for this is the G2x uses a Mini-SIM, while the new phone will use a Micro-SIM. Because of this, I couldn’t just wait for him to come after work and insert the SIM card in the new phone.

I also took the dogs out for a walk twice today. I took them out in the morning when it was cooler, and a shorter walk in the afternoon. I also watched a couple of shows on Hulu and wrote a couple of emails. The landlord also came by to fix the back door. The hinges were coming loose, so they needed to be tighten.

Not much happened today. I walked the dogs a few times today, and had some copies that needed to be made. I will have to finish those another day, but in turn, I will need to get a couple of things finished first.

I also received the restore disc set for the PC I was working on only to notice another problem with a dead hard drive. I called the owner and offer him options, which he gave me the answer for his needs the best. This will mean I will have to run an errand tomorrow. I guess I will have to make sure I get up early tomorrow morning then as the place I will need to go to opens at 9AM, and I want to get there about that time.

Not much happened today. I walked the dogs once, and went to the store to get something to drink. However, I spent the day working on a Vista PC. This computer is a quality machine, but it reminded me of why I hated Vista so much. The OS restore disc came with SP1, and I made the effort to download SP2, and still spent the day downloading updates.

The PC was finally updated, and software installed – however I had a problem with the email account set up. I did finally got everything up. As for plans for tomorrow, I will finish everything on the Vista machine, and call the person that owns the computer. Hopefully, I will be able to collect the money and relinquish the same tomorrow. If possible, I will also need to get to the grocery store, but will not be going if it is too late.


Not much happened today. The night before, a notebook was brought to me to deal with. It was infected with a severe virus, and it ended up wiping the system. In turn, I had to call the manufacturer to get a restore disc which I will receive on Tuesday, and will pass the charges on the owner.

I also spent some time watching a few videos, but otherwise have been in pain, and an itchy stinging sensation on my arms, and parts of my legs. It might be a side effect of the new medicine, so I may have to make an earlier appointment if that is the case.
