Stress Feed

Saturday slump.

I didn't walk today.  I took a rare day off and it was actually pretty nice.  I laid in bed until almost 4! LOL!  I didn't really sleep, I just relaxed and enjoyed being in my warm bed.  I was up later than usual last night because I started a new true crime book and I got involved in it and didn't want to put it down.  

I went down in the basement again today.  The water went down some more, but I wasn't able to get the pilot lit.  I did get my clothes wet, my hair wet, and hurt my knee. Boo!  Hopefully I'll be able to go down tomorrow and get the pilot light lit.  Who knows?  I might give it an extra day and try again Monday.  I really want my hot water back.  I guess I'll be washing my hair in cold water again.  Brr!

I've been playing Fallout Shelter again.  I moved it to my phone.  My tablet is so old that it's hard to play it on there.  It loads too slowly and the game play is laggy.  It is much faster on my phone.  The only issue is the screen is a lot smaller! lol . Oh well.  It's fun.  I had forgotten how much fun it is.

 


Hello again!

I bet you thought I forgot to post yesterday, didn't you?  Well, I didn't!  I had power issues.  My power went out around 2:30 pm yesterday and it didn't come back until 5:15 pm today!  Believe me was I glad to see it back.  Yesterday was one crazy thing after another.  I went out at my regular lunch time and nothing was open.  The power was out all over the city.  We had a LOT of rain in a very short time and some extremely high winds.  It was nuts.  I think a tornado touched down here but I don't know if that has been confirmed.  The first time I went out to try and find something open so I could get food, it was insane.  It was still raining and nasty.  There were roads under water, trees across roads, waterfalls where there are no waterfalls, etc.  It was very exciting, but very scary!  I actually had to drive UNDER two trees that were across the road and then drive around another tree on the same road.  Luckily that was back near my neighborhood so my happy ass went home!

After the worst of the storms were over and it was only raining a little, I went back out to go to two different areas of the city that I didn't get to last trip.  One area was completely without power and the other area was blocked due to water in the road.  I had to go a crazy round about way, but I finally got back home.  That time, I decided I should just stay in!  I wrote a stack of pen pal letters on the MBP but of course, I couldn't mail them!  I also couldn't charge the MBP or my phone.  Oh and my data that I usually can use in a power outage decided to not work too!  I couldn't even get on to post that I couldn't post! Lol

So later, my friend texted and asked if I had power yet.  No, I said, what about you?  He didn't either.  He asked if I wanted to ride somewhere and try to find something open to get food. I agreed immediately!  We found two fast food places that were open but they were backed up like crazy.  We found another one that had people inside eating, but when we got to the drive thru, they said they were closed. BOO!  He mentioned a gas station / convenience store that usually had deli sandwiches and stuff.  We went there.  They were busy busy, but they had sandwiches!  I got two bacon, egg, and cheese croissants.  They were so delicious.  After not eating all day, they were ambrosial!  I got a bag of chips and a Mountain Dew.  I also got a bag of mini chocolate chip cookies and a bag of Funyuns to have for today.

So, I had to sleep with no air conditioning last night.  Luckily it wasn't too hot.  I am a person who likes to have my bedroom as an arctic climate when I sleep because I like to snuggle under covers.  I can't sleep unless I have some kind of cover on me.  I toss most of my bedding to the bottom of the bed and only used a light sheet and a blanket.  I finally got to sleep. One good thing about the power being out was that it was totally dark. I like it to be as dark as possible when I sleep.  I got my wish for sure last night.  I couldn't see anything.  

So, today, I get up when my Fitbit alarm goes off, actually I was awake a bit before it did.  The power was still off, so that meant no coffee. OH NOES!  I drank a room temperature Mountain Dew. BLEAH!  I love cold soda. I DO NOT like warm soda.  I had to have the caffeine though!

I decided to walk since I missed the last two days and there was nothing to do here anyway!  I got in a good walk.  I had to walk carefully in some areas because of downed lines and downed trees, but it was mainly okay.  The whole business section I pass when I'm walking was without power and still is as of about 20 minutes ago.  I had to run out to mail a package.  

I was able to get a cold Coke (Thank the Goddess) at my turn around point. I came home and my power was still out.  Boo.  I noticed last night when I went out with my friend that my other friend that lives at the top of my street had power! WHAT?!  UGH.  Her street is on another transformer or something.  So, today, when I walked by there, I noticed that her son was home.  He is 21 and in college to be a doctor and I love him to pieces.  I called and asked if it would be okay for me to come up and charge my phone and my laptop.  He said sure so I went.  I charged my Macbook to about 80% and my phone to almost 100 and headed home.  They have power and they have a coffee maker.  I made myself a cup. LOL . 

So, I had a nicely charge phone and MBP.  I came home and was trying to decide what to do about food.  I checked my phone and my data was working again so I was looking to see if I could find out what was open today.  A lot of city was / still is out.  My friend texted me and said if I could wait a bit, he'd pick me up and we'd go eat.  I did, and he did.  We ate and then he dropped me home.  While I was waiting for him to show, my power came back. YAY!  His didn't, though.  Sorry, friend!  

So, when we got back and he dropped me off, his power was still off.  I went out just a few minutes ago to mail off a package from one of my ebay auctions and a business that is a few streets over from his house had power when they didn't earlier and it looked like several houses on his street had power.  He had gone out to a friend's house since they had power.  I guess he'll head home soon.  I know I'm glad to have mine back!

While I was at the post office mailing that package, I also mailed off the letters I wrote last night. I was able to print them off today. I had to type them because it was the only way I could see to write them. LOL . OH!  After today's walk, something was hurting me on my chest right below my shoulder. It's way dark in the house without lights even in the daytime, so I couldn't see what it was.  I reached and a felt what felt like a flying stinging insect. I still don't know what it was or if it's still in my house.  It put a nice sized hole in me and it HURT.  Oh man, did it hurt. I'm pretty sure it was a wasp or a yellow jacket or something of the sort.  It's actually feels hot right now.  Not good! 

Ah, well, I just wrote my book for Nano in this post. LOL Well, I didn't get to post yesterday so there you go.  I should be able to sleep well tonight with the air going. Yay!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Working on it

So, I'm working on my finance issues.  I pawned a few more things today and got a small loan from a friend.  I was able to put $71 in my paypal account.  I also was able to order two Visa gift cards with my Paypal credit.  As soon as they come (I got e-delivery) I am going to put them in Paypal and then contact them to charge those for the $355.  Between those and the $71 I put in today, I will have it covered all the way around.  That would be great.  It has been almost 2 hours since I did the purchase but it said it would take 1 to 3 hours.  Hopefully it will come through soon and I can get all this done.  I will still have to pay back the credit, but this way I can pay over time and keep my Paypal account open! Wish me luck!

I walked today and I mailed off the two letters that I hadn't written.  Well, they are written now. :P . I actually wrote them both last night.  I got them all ready to mail so I dropped them in the box on my walk today.  It was hot out there but it wasn't too horrible.  A friend carried me to CVS to put the money in Paypal.  I would have been able to put in $75 but there is a $3.95 fee.  I think being able to add money like that is cool.  It didn't take very long at all.  I'd say less than 20 minutes if that long.

The email that said they would  try to charge my bank again would be in "3 business days" . I am hoping that means it will be Monday before they try again instead of tomorrow.  I am working hard to get something in there so that I'm not in the negative!  I also brought down the buy it now price of my cel.  If I can get $300 for it, that will help me so much.  I could get this bill paid and I won't have to worry with it anymore.  That would be nice!

I am just getting anxious waiting on the things coming through.  Instant payout my booty! lol


OMG It gets worse everyday

So today, I talked to my bank and got the ISF fee returned to my account.  Then, I check my email.  Paypal is going to re-send the charge to my bank account in three days.  I talked to my bank and tried to get a small line of credit to cover the $355.  No luck.  They did put a hold on my account until after it tries to hit again. Paypal said that when it went to my bank and was declined again, they would put my Paypal balance in the negative.  I went and tried to sell some silver jewlery today to get some money but they only wanted to give me $10.  Not worth it.  SO, I listed one of my last anime cels on ebay.  It's a Nuriko cel from Fushigi Yuugi.  Nuriko is my favorite anime character ever and this is my very last cel of him.  I have him listed here if you want to see:

Nuriko cel for sale!

If you know anyone who collects anime cels, send them to my auction please.  I need to sell it so that my account won't be messed up.  I finally got in touch with my sister today.  She didn't thank me for getting myself into this mess for her bills.  Just said she would pay the balance of the original bill that is left. Wow, thanks. ~_~;


Seriously, can someone shoot me?

So, today, I checked my bank account as I have every day since the snafu with Paypal.  Guess what?  The balance was negative!  I called the bank and they said that it was an overdraft fee.  I told the lady that I was told that since I didn't have the money and I had the overdraft protection that this shouldn't have happened.  She looked into it and did some checking.  After a bit, I asked if the fee could be removed since I did call in advance and let them know the situation.  Luckily, she said they could take it off, but it actually has to hit the account first. So now, I have to wait until it actually hits and call them to get it taken off.  All this over a bill that I shouldn't have had to worry with in the first place.  My stress levels are through the roof.  I DO feel a little better that this finally hit and it will be taken care of, but I'll still be upset until I can actually get it taken off so my balance is not negative!

In other news, I mailed 8 letters today. I still have two from that batch to write.  I walked today and it rained for the majority of my walk.  That was frustrating.  I hate to walk when it rains.  Hopefully tomorrow will be clear.  I won't mind overcast, but I don't want any rain!  I am also hoping this charge hits my account tomorrow so I can get it straightened out.  Life is so frustrating.


Sunday

Yeah, I really don't have anything to say today either, but I didn't want a one sentence post.  It's been raining here on and off for three days so I haven't gotten any walks in.  It is supposed to rain again tomorrow and then clear off.  Unfortunately, I live in a river city and it's supposed to flood tomorrow and not go down below flood levels until Thursday!  Hopefully it won't be too bad.  They closed the Riverwalk trail a few days back and it will continue to be closed until after the flooding.

If it's not actively raining tomorrow, I may try to get my walk in.  It just depends on the weather forecast.  If not, I can try on Tuesday.  I still haven't solved the bill issue.  I've tried to get credit everywhere to cover it and no luck.


So screwed. :(

My sister is behind on the taxes on the house I live in.  I tried to pay a big portion of it for her tonight and thought it would come out of my Paypal credit.  Nope, it's trying to charge my checking account of which I have no money.  I am so screwed. :( . I had enough in my credit to pay most of her bill, but not all, but it won't use that.  Anyone want to send me $355 via paypal?

I didn't think so, but there it is. I talked to Paypal and my bank.  I shouldn't have any overdraft fees with my bank and I'm going to contact the people she owes tomorrow to let them know that my money won't actually work.  I'm hoping this will be cleared up.  I'm having a hard time lately with my mental issues and this is not helping me one bit.  I was already tore up over the fact that the bill was past due and now I've made things worse. I think I need to go to bed.


Oh boy....

I should have checked my bank balance before going out tonight.  I went to Hobby Lobby to get one thing.  Some pages for my small 365 planner.  They only have a limited selection of the small planner stuff.  I got one thing of that.  Unfortunately, I had to see a bunch of other things. ^^;  I found a lot of marked down washi!  I found two two packs that were $1.24 each.  I got those, I also saw a pack of five or six of the micro mini washi for the same price.  I got those too. I also found a huge $20 tube of washi marked down to $5.  I got that too. I got a few other little things.  I found some mark down stickers, some little mini notebooks for .74!  I also found some traveler's notebook refills.  I shouldn't have gotten all that stuff.  Oh well, too late now. ^^;

 


Hmmm

It has been a very long day.  I did get to sleep a little earlier last night, so that helped some.  I walked and the sun was out and it was hot.  BLEAH!  I came home and it got overcast. ~_~; I did my workouts and French and then had lunch. I relaxed a bit and then decided to go to Target for a bit.  I did and didn't buy anything in Target!  That is a first. :P I did stop by the Starbucks in there and get a drink to make day 4 and get my extra 25 stars.  I will go tomorrow to the regular Starbucks to get my birthday drink.  My birthday is tomorrow and I'm not really happy about it.  I've never been one to worry about age, but I'm turning 50 tomorrow and it SUCKS.  I still think I'm in my 20's with better sense!  Ugh.  How in the hell did I get this old.  I swore I wouldn't let myself get to 50.  Phooey. Phooey. Phooey.
