More stress? Yes!

So, today, I get an update from ebay that they aren't going to refund me.  I didn't ask for a refund.  I just wanted the item I requested.  I had to call ebay to get that ball rolling.  I bought a shipping label from USPS and put the purse in a flat rate padded envelope and dropped it in a box tonight. 

I realized that I had run out of  mailing tape, so I had to run out and get some on my way to the post office.  I was so close to Starbucks and I didn't think about going because I was so upset over this whole ebay situation.  I really hope I get the purse I actually ordered.  This whole situation has stressed me out.  I've never had this kind of problem on ebay before. :(


I got a package today.  It was supposedly my Fossil purse I ordered on ebay.  Well, it was a Fossil purse all right.  It wasn't the purse I ordered.  Not even close. I'm am not very happy with this situation and as soon as I saw it, I contacted ebay.  The purse I ordered was 'new' and this one is definitely not.  The one I ordered is cream colored, this is brown.  They don't even look alike.  I'm so pissed.  UGH.  Now I have to wait for ebay to contact the seller, see if I hear from them, and then get ebay to settle is if they don't.  I'm so pissed.  So, so, so pissed.  GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

What day is this?

Holidays always get my all confused on what day it is.   Happens every year at this time. :p . I walked today even though I didn't feel well.  My right ear is giving me problems. It was hurting and I think I might have an ear infection.  Hopefully it can clear up on it's own.  I don't have the money to go to the doctor at the moment, and my new insurance cards haven't come.  They should have come already.  I'm going to have to look into that.



Hello from midweek.

I was quite tempted to skip my walk today as I woke up very tired.  I went for my walk anyway!  I was glad I did as I was able to pick up a few things at the grocery store on the way home.  It was nice to get a few things I needed.  

I need to take down my Yule tree and put it away for another year.  It's such a pain to take it down. lol I am not looking forward to that.  I might wait and do it on Friday since it's supposed to rain all day and I'm may not be able to walk.  They have already given flood warnings.  Boo, that means my basement is still probably flooded or will be again.  I still haven't gotten the pilot lit.  Still no hot water.  How long has it been now?  Let me look....   November the 7th was the last time I had a hot bath.  It's been almost two months now.  Phooey! If I go down tomorrow and get it lit, it will probably just get washed out again.  I don't know why my basement it doing this so often.  Yes, we've had a LOT of rain, but it doesn't usually fill up that fast. It's so frustrating!


Good Grief!

What a day.  I actually got to walk today and that was nice.  I came home and did some things around the house while waiting on a package.  The package was a Logitech wireless keyboard that I've wanted since last year's NaNo!  I ordered it two days ago on Amazon and it came today.  It's nice and I'm actually typing on it now.  I will use it mainly for my phone and tablet, but it's working grewat with my MacBook Pro.  it isn't working at all with my tablet at the moment.  I am going to work on that and see if I can't get it to work later.

When I was at Target the other week, I saw some laptop sleeves.  They were marked down to less than $5 and they were for a 11" size laptop. My MBP is 13 inch, so it wouldn't do me any good.  The keyboard is about that size though and I thought it would make a good case to keep it in when I'm not using it.  It's a snug fit, but it fits.  It will be good to have protection for it when not in use.  So, I go back to my car and try to start it to drive home.  No go.  I try a few more times and still nothing.  I waited awhile and tried again.  Nope.  Also, all of my attempts at trying to start it ran the battery down. ~_~;  Luckily, I had a friend come and give me a jump.  It started right up and I was able to get home.  While I was waiting for all this, I went back in Target and got a Cascara latte!  I was going to get one when I was in there but there was a line.  I decided I'd stop at the regular one on my way home.  I knew I wasn't going to stop again or not go straight home after I got my car started, so I just went in Target and got my latte.  They were out of almond milk and it wasn't as good as it usually is.  Oh well, it was something good and hot to drink. It was a bit chilly outside sitting in a car that wouldn't start!

So, I'm home now.  I have to do NaNo. I haven't done that yet.  I will work on that after I eat dinner.  I have no idea what I'm going to fix for dinner.  I guess I'll find out when I fix it. LOL . I did some more on my 2019 bullet journal.  I drew in lines on the rest of the trackers that needed them.  I also filled in my board game tracker. It looks so good! I love it! I hope to do a video and take some pictures of all the work I did on it soon.  Oh, I also fell in love with the blue Stabilo pen that I used to set up a lot of it.  It was also the pen I used to set up this year's NaNo tracker.  I looked online to see if I could order some of just this color of pens.  I found a site that had them for .60 each! I got five. LOL . I plan to use that color throughout the year in 2019 in that bujo.  I'll keep using the pen I have and put one of the new ones in my Stabilo roll that I got earlier this year.  The other three are backups. :P

Now, I need to start thinking about dinner and then getting prepared for NaNo.  I am really liking the feel of this keyboard. I might be using it tonight!–

Almost a bad day!

So, I got up today and I was getting ready for my walk.  I was going to toss something in the dryer for a bit.  I had already started my bed linen in the wash.  The dryer wouldn't start!  Oh no!  I messed with it for a bit but I had to leave it and ate breakfast and went for my walk.  I figured if I couldn't get it started when I got home, I'd have to carry my linen to the laundry and dry them there.  I really didn't want to do this as I am extremely short on funds this month and that would have taken money I didn't ned to be spending. Plus, I'd have to go somewhere and get cash back since I never carry cash.  The dryer had done this exact same thing before and my friend came and unplugged it, took it apart, couldn't find anything wrong with it and put it back together and plugged it in.  It worked! LOL!  So, I decided, I'm going to do that too!

I didn't take the back off, but I did unplug it and check the 'hose' that goes into the wall.  I re-seated that and cleaned out some of the lint.  I put the dryer back carefully, turned it on and it worked! YAY!  I didn't have to go to the laundromat and I didn't have to leave.  I was a happy camper. It's nice when something actually goes right for me every now and then.  I put my bed linen in and it dried it.  

I did other errands around the house that needed doing and I ran out and got some gas.  I plan to go to Starbucks at least once to write during NaNo and i was low on gas.  I didn't get a lot, because like I said, I'm low on funds.  I had extra bills this month and it's really screwed me up.  I need to buy stamps.  I need to write letters, too!  I'll write my letters tomorrow and get them mailed off.

As for NaNo, I did get that done for today. I wrote 2022 words!  I have been on a roll.  I am glad to get several early days with extra words in case I have days later that I need the buffer.  It's always good to have it.  Sadly, my pizza tradition after I hit 10,000 words will not be realized this month.  I don't have enough to do that as I'm already going to struggle to make it through.  Oh well!


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.


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.
