Not Bad

  Hello all well here's the story for the week. I am waiting on all my information so that I can file my taxes. Why is it that company's are so slow to send out tax information. Knowing that the government needs it. I really look forward to doing my taxes this year Not! I know  I am going to owe Uncle Sam some money with the unemployment I been getting  and stock that was sold.

Speaking of stock sale I purchased dunking donuts stock years ago because I liked their coffee and they were popular.  I got a notice yesterday that somebody purchased all the company stock and therefore I had to sell my shares. The company went private. I looked at my bank statement and I had a nice deposit from the sale of the dunking donuts stocks. I  did not pay that much for it when I purchased it for about  $30 a share back then  it was selling for $106 last time I checked. So let's just say I made a nice profit on that.

It's cold in new York 20 degrees and I am trying to play catch-up with shredding all my papers and cleaning up . To be honest this first month of 2021 I am been pretty lazy.

                                               So what's my story what do you think?

Got It!


 Hello all well here's the story for the week. I got it! my $600 dollar stimulus check and here's what I spent some of it on. First I gave $100 to charity I feel if I am eating and I can I will give another  person or people  meals to. That's just me. I spent $8.99 on a  banana pie. I love Banana Pie. Did not get the cloth mask yet but I saw them 3 for $8.99 at my local drug store. On amazon they have the fancy cloth mask but they want to much for them. But I will be buying cloth mask soon. Lastly  I spent $10 on lottery tickets because who could pass up a chance to win 760 million  dollars. Heck I could win 2nd prize in Mega  Million or Powerball  and I  would be just as happy. The rest went into the bank for emergencies and house repairs. Oh yea I did  treat my partner to his  2 favorite things in the supermarket which cost me about $10.  Even though he got his own stimulus check.  So what have you done with your stimulus check?

Also good news all my check ups for the breast, throat, diabetes  all came back good. So I am happy about that Thank you lord!

                                                That's my story what do you think?

  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?
