  Hello all well here's the story for the week. I am Happy! Here's why I just did my end of year finance report . I am happy to say that I am up a couple more dollars then I was last year. I also got a good heart rating from my doctor. I told you that  my heart doctors told me that my heart was not function has it should be. When I went to him this week he says the heart is better .  I thanked God for that.

Also I went grocery shopping this week and found some pretty good meat sales at my local  Stop & Shop. Chicken was 89 cents a pound. My sweet Italian sausages was 2  for $7. Which normally a pack would be $5-6 dollars.  So yes I am very happy and blessed.

Also I been feeding the stray cats and squirrels in the neighborhood. They are eating good everyday. I consider them my outdoor pets.

                                              That's my story what do you think?

Hello all well here's the story for the week. It's New York cold outside. Today it's about 30 degrees. Cold weather makes me lazy. I have not done a mystery shop in weeks. Also since I am collecting unemployment it has made me less motivated to  hustle for my money. I even have 2 big bags of  plastic bottles that I have to return for the % cent deposit money  that should be at least $5 if I am luck. 

This a new year and it's time to look for a secondary health insurance company. I am afraid with all the doctors appointment that I have and test to be taken in 2021. That my insurance will say I am only paying half of this you pay the rest. Having insurance especially for health is not only expensive it stressful. Wondering if  your heath insurance will pay for the service or if you going to pay for it. Which by the way is not cheap. 

After all that is said I am still doing my $1 a day challenge and this week I spend more then I earned. Had to play lotto for a chance to win $450 million. Wouldn't that be nice!

                                            Well that's my story what do you think?

  Hello all well here's the Story for the week. First Happy New 2021. They almost got me  meaning I got a letter from the nyc DMV. Stating that  they needed my partner signature and an eye exam for him to get his driving licenses. With covid-19 everything got delayed. So we got all the info that we needed and paid for the licensed which is $80.51 through a  credit  card. We did all this about 3 month ago.

 So why is it now I get a letter this week saying that we did not pay the DVM for my partners drivers  license. I started to pay them again until my partner told me we already paid them or else he would not have gotten his license. They almost got me I had written a check for that amount. put a stamp on the envelope and was ready to send it off on Monday.  But when I asked my partner  about it it stated we already paid for his licenses and he gave me proof.  What I am  going to do  now is  send DVM a copy of his payment with the information that they requested.

                                                      Sometimes it truly pays to ask. 

                                                So that's my story what do you think?

I Am So Greedy

Hello all well here's the story for the week. First Happy New Year! Hope 2021 is better then 2020. Now on to the story. I am so greedy I have spend  $1849.00 for the year on take out food. That's right I spent  that much for the year just eating out. It's a disgrace. I will do better in 2021 by cooking more eating out less. I find eating out now with everything that's going on that the food is not as good as it use to be. So why waste money on it right. You know what I could have done with that money?   I also spent $632 on gambling for the year. That's crazy and what have I won about $50 bucks. Darn you lotto I must quit you!

 I have been  watching Downton Abby. You have to see this show from the beginning because it's crazy for the 1920's. There's  plotting, backstabbing, betrayal  almost like a soap opera but better. The family and the servants are a hot mess. I am hooked on this show. You can watch it free on Peacock. They have some good shows on there. Did I mention they are Free!

                                                     Well that's My Story What Do You Think?

                                                         Hello All Happy Holidays.

Well here's the story for the week. Since 2021 is on Friday and today is Sunday I am starting my challenges early. I am doing the dollar really two dollar a day challenge. I am also trying to use coupons and save the money that I save from using the coupons.

I am trying to get my house ready for the new year meaning cleaning it up, organize stuff and  throwing away stuff which is my passion. I love to throw stuff away. Don't care if it still has the tags on it If I purchased it and have not used it in a year I throw it away or donate it.

So far it's been quite and I like it like that. On Tuesday I have the last of my test and it's on to a new year hope this one is better then the one we are leaving behind.

                                                      That's My Story What Do You Think?

Happy Holidays


Happy Holidays

Well here's the story since I have not spoken to you for a while. Thankfully everything is quite. No emergencies to deal with. I am just relaxing and getting my library stash of books I want to read ready for the holiday season.
I also keep watching to see when the new unemployment money will be delivered. The last check was this week for me and I was hoping that I would continue to receive my unemployment until March of 2021. But of course the person who I shall not mention is holding Everybody up!
 It's so unfair that people who really need this money is not able to get it for the holiday season and might not get it for the new year. I tell you one person should not have all this power to control people livelihoods.  
But this year and every year I give more then I get I don't believe in getting gifts I am a giver more then a receiver so I give as much as I can and then give some more.

  So that's my story what do you think?
