I've been upset with myself for a few days so haven't blogged anything. I've really screwed up with my bills last month due to the 'shutdown' weeks in November & December with my work (which adds up to a month of no work ...) and my mom's Social Security getting cut last month. So, I am hundreds of dollars past due on about 3 bills, so far. And, no way I will catch up soon ... might even lose my internet & cable for a while ... not sure yet. Depends when my oil check shows up (most likely will be late due to the holidays ...) So, started looking seriously into a consolidated loan of some sort. Checked with one of my banks this morning. Will check with the other 2 tomorrow or Monday to compare. I have 3 credit cards (1 is mine, 1 is my mom's & 1 is joint) I want to eliminate that add up to about $12,000 (most of that from the damn water heater and furnace!) I only want to keep my Home Depot card for a while longer. And, I have no money for more gas to work Monday ... fun ... I may have enough to get a daily bus pass, but I have to go to several stores in Sacramento, so that will be hard.
Hmmm. I have about $20 in my PayPal I can transfer to my bank, so that will help for gas.
Well, I won't see that in my bank until Thursday ... damn.
Plus, I strained my wrist the other day, so I'm wearing one of my old braces. Don't know what the heck I did to it. So, no painting this afternoon since I can't hold the brush very well.
On good news, I have the Intro to Kombucha class at the co-op tomorrow. Luckily, I already paid for that.
I need to find a pawn shop ... huh, how odd. No pawn shops in Yolo County ... will have to go to one in Sacramento ... have to find the ring I always used to use in Florida when I needed money ... haven't pawned it in 13 years. Not sure where I put it ... hunting now. It was my aunt Juanita's diamond ring ...
Can't find it. Will have to think on where it could be around here ... I may have to go through grandma's jewelry and find something else.
Or, my mom's or my aunt Jeanne's ... but, I don't think any of them had any real diamonds like on that ring ...
I've listed a couple of things in my Bonanza shop:
Vintage Sterling Silver Rosary with bag
Beautiful Vintage Red Rosary with box
They were both my grandmother's. They are at least 50 years old. I have about 4 more I want to list. Another day.
I got some old cassettes listed:
Auction: Soul Asylum Runaway Train Cassette Single - used
Auction: Depeche Mode Personal Jesus Cassette Single - used
Auction: Tracy Lawrence Alibis Cassette Album - used
Dinner will be leftover chicken, and some tapioca pudding. My mom used the last of the milk and vanilla!! So, water with potato starch with dinner.
