Cooking



Hello all well here's my story so far. Being what the situation is which is staying at home until.. Who knows when. We are faced with some pretty tough challenges ahead of us. For me  that the places I normally order from  are closed. ( which I don't do to often) and with my partner not cooking as much as they use to the job now  is mine or we don't eat) Not sure if that's a good thing or not. I have challenged myself to learn how to reuse what I have to make leftovers. I have come to realize  that what I  was running away from  away from which was cooking is not to bad if you plan your meals and make them last for a least 2-3 days. Which I am working on doing. I will confess I am not the best cook, Heck I am not even ok but we can eat it and be thankful for it.. 

Also I am looking  at what I have at home and trying to make it last since the last thing I want to do is go back and forth to the grocery story. It was already stressful with out this Virus now it's more stressful to me. Because you have to be extra careful and wipe down everything. Put gloves , mask and extra layers on. Wipe down your food, shoes, mail. Oh my god this is so much to do and remember but it's for the best either do this or get sick.


                                                                       So that's my story what do you think?

My Life Now




 Hello all well here's my week so far. This is my life right now gloves, mask and a lot of Lysol spray, wipes and hand washing. I want to know what were people doing before all of this? Was nobody washing their hands. Why must we be instructed over and over again to wash out hands. That's part of being clean or so I thought. Well  when it comes to wearing the mask I feel like I am suffocating, Yes I do wear it but it's so uncomfortable to wear.  I have to force myself to wear it because of the safety factor. But every chance I get to lower it from my face to breath air I do.

Also  with most things closed except for the basics places. What else can I do but clean my house and start getting ready for yard sale season. I am making a pile of stuff to sell as we speak and I mean I have stuff.  What you need I probably have it!

Nothing really special to report living once day at a time  while saying this to shall pass.

                                                                        Be Safe and Careful out there.


                                                                     That's my story what do you think?

Making Me Crazy

 Hello all well here's the story for the week. I am stressed , tired and crazy. Here's why my partner went into the hospital this past weekend. Can I tell you with this virus thing going around the hospitals are more crazy then normal. First you can not visit your loved one in emergency. You have to sit in a lounge and hope that they let you know what's going on with your loved one. Mind you your sitting for hours waiting on some news. The hospital personally are all wearing mask and plastic gloves but they don't have any for the visitors  in the hospital. So basically  they are saying to you  your on your own buddy with this virus thing.

After all said and done this is not a good time to visit a hospital if you don't have to. All the surgeries including mind has been put on hold and everything is crazy. Which leads to frustration and stress.


                                                     That's My Story What do you think?

Refund

                                                                 Hello All..

Here's the story for the week. I got a refund form the hospital.  I am getting surgery soon and the hospital called saying that my co-pay was $750. I paid it with my charge card. I thought it was high but if that's all I have to pay from a $30,000. hospital bill I will pay the $750 and not complain.  So I get a call from the hospital saying I overpaid and they owe me $550. Which is good. They told me that I should have only paid $200. Even better. So I am waiting on the credit to go back to my charge card.

Con Edison in New York is greedy as H*ll. Here's why. I am paying the bill on my rental until I can get a tenant. Nobody is living in the house  which in returns means that no services are being used. Con Ed charges me $270 a month for an empty house. Then they got the nerve to send me a letter threating to take me to court because they can not get in to the house to read the meter. Really Con Ed I am paying your high A** bill on time at that!!  Anyway I called them and we made an appointment to  have the meter read this month. Most of the time I just read the meter myself and give them the numbers, But they stated they need to physically look at the meters. I also wanted to go on a level billing plan . They shot that down saying it's a rental property which doesn't qualify for the level billing plan.

A nice con Ed person told me that  I can have my meters changed so that they can access the meter from outside. I called the number that I was given and the person told me that service is free but it's not in my area yet. Ok Con Ed now what!!!

                                                                So what do you think?

Buy Hawaii

                                 

Hello all Here's the story for the week. Good-by Hawaii. I had planned on going on a cruise for 2021. But with this Virus thing going around and  princess cruise ships having their fair share of problems  My partner said cancel until further notice. Which I did. Now I just have to watch for my $850. deposit back to my amex card.

I got a thing for toilet paper. As soon as the news media and other started saying stock up on things  just in case you have to stay in your home for a couple of weeks. I  ran to the store to get enough toilet paper to last me and my partner for a least a month. I don't know why I had to get toilet paper more then anything else. Guess that's just me. I also stocked up on the basic didn't go to crazy because we already have a food pantry that we stock stuff like soups and cereal. Thank god we are good.

 So that's my story so far what do you think?

So Stressed!



 Hello all  well here's the story for the week. I am so mentally stressed out. This week and last week has been nothing but doc's appointment. I am trying to coordinate my surgery with my partners. I have mine first and his is last. That means doctors and hospital visit before hand with a lot of medical instruction and medications. We have been running so much  we both are mentally and physically tired.

I use to have faith in the medical profession  now not so much. I see that the hospitals and doctors  are lacking compassion and organizations. Everything now is do it yourself from  making sure you get all your medical documents in order  so   all your doctors and specialist get what they need. To making sure your insurance company  get's their paper work so that you will not get a big medical  bill. Stress on top of stress.  Medical situations is now a do it yourself job. My how times have changed.

I will be glad when this is all over we both need a vacation and no more medical problems god willing.

                                                                  So that's my story what do you think?

Expensive Feburary



 Hello all well here's the story so far. February for me has been an expensive month. Here's the breakdown. First I was told that my rental unit need shiny wood floors  so when  people come in to look at it to rent. It will rent faster this is coming from a rental agent that I wanted to use to rent my house. I got a quote and the floors plus some other things will cost me $1000. I have to have surgery and the cost out of pocket for me will be $750. ( thank god for insurance if not my surgery would be costing me $30,000. wow!!!) My car broke down repairs cost $1400. You see where I am going here. I am glad that the months almost over that way maybe in march I could save a few dollars.

                                                 So that's my story what do you think?
