My work internet connection has been sporadic all day. It’s 10am, I have 8 emails sitting in my outbox and a growing to do list, but can’t do any of it. IT said they’re aware of the issue and working on it. Oh well. *shrug* To pass the time, I started this random blog. I’ll hit publish when my work internet is back running or I give up for the day.
I received a hand written thank you note from a twitter buddy and the little note is from her son. How cute! This made me so happy. :-)
My pre-op appointment and surgery have been scheduled. Just a few weeks ago, I was afraid and crying about the situation. Now I’m looking forward to getting it done and putting it all behind me. God has a way of changing our hearts.
Insurance company said my out of pocket costs will be 10%. That sounds reasonable, but the PF side of me was like…10% OF WHAT?! With the ridiculous cost of healthcare, I expect my savings account and I will be in recovery for a while.
My mom is coming up to stay with me for a month. We haven’t lived under the same roof in over 20 years. My daughter will be here for a little while too. This should be interesting.
September is an expensive month for me because the property taxes for my home and car are due. At the same dang time. Ouch. Thankfully, I have no major plans or responsibilities this month because my pockets are full of lint.
Amex gives me $10 every time I pay my cell phone bill with my Blue card. Cool.
My internet bill increased from $39.99 to $74.99 because the 12 month promotion expired. O_O For $75/month, the internet should read my mind and translate my thoughts across the web at lightening speed. I called to see if there was another promotion available, but the rep said no and tried to push an upgrade for a more expensive bundle deal. Uh…negative. I don’t watch TV or use a home phone so I declined and told him to cancel my account. He transferred me to another department, then the second rep offered a faster internet speed at $29.99/month for 2 more years. *blink* I’ll take it!
My neighbor’s lease is ending soon and she told me her rent renewal rate was close to $3k/month. *faint* Needless to say, she’s moving. My lease ends next June and I will move too before I pay $3k/month in rent. No way.
I’ve been thinking about moving back into my house anyway. The main reason I moved in 2007 is because I wanted my daughter in a better school and it significantly reduced my commuting time. Well, my daughter finished school years ago, my job allows me to work from home now, and my mortgage is half my current rent. Should be a no-brainer, right?
Got money on my mind. Hmm, what else is going on…
My neighbor just text me “Your car is slanted again. LOL” Man, I can’t park straight to save my life. I don’t mean parallel parking either. I mean pulling straight into a regular parking spot. The car “feels” straight but when I get out, it’s always crooked. People make fun of me and I laugh it off, but I can’t help it. I even stand crooked. I had a spinal issue as a kid. With treatment, it never fully corrected itself, and mom said surgery wasn’t worth the risk.
Talenti gelato, caramel cookie crunch flavor, is my new favorite snack. Yum!
If the Lord is willing, I’ll be taking a dream vacation this year.
Six of my friends have birthdays this month and 4 are within the same week. I don’t know why, but that’s funny to me. I guess December was cuffing season back in the day. *giggles*
Wait… *looks at clock* It’s after 5pm. My work internet is finally back up. Should I call it quits or keep working? Decisions… *deuces*
