So, currently, we are in a bit of a situation. We wouldn’t be it there wasn’t the pressure of the wedding coming up, but alas we are. The house note is due in 3 days and there isn’t even $100 in the account. Rocky’s got about 5 and I have 50. The doctor took her sweet time sending in the paperwork for disability and I haven’t gotten any of my benefits going on 3 weeks tomorrow.
There are options but I’m hopeful and waiting. IF they pay back pay once it’s approved, all will be right with the world Friday. If not, I will have to take money from the e-fund to pay the house note. I don’t want to do that if we don’t have to.
Rocky and I went to a place to see about donating plasma Tuesday. They are currently running a promotion (1100 for 8 donations). I learned a lot when we went to do it but I was not eligible because they couldn’t find a good vein. I was told to try again, that it was likely that I was dehydrated. I had to wait another 2 1/2 hours before Rocky was released.
We went next door and bought 2 elevated raised garden beds with the money he’d earned. Then he said he had no intention of spending any more of it and using it for our trip to MI. This will make me feel a tad better about taking money out of the e-fund.
I have precious little time to make the Amazon FBA thing work for me. People are bringing in $5,000-$15,000 a month. One, in particular, is open to questions and doesn’t seem bothered by them. I also, don’t have issues asking. So far, I’ve made some mistakes because of the tools I’d chosen to use and a misunderstanding of how it works. I plan on making a big change and attempting to go to the GoodWill Outlet Saturday?.... I mean that’s if everything lines up.... I feel okay… and the like. They sell books there at .59 a pound. I thought we were going to go yesterday but Rocky was playing up the tired/weakness from giving plasma. I’m not too upset with him about it. Just that it’s obvious if I’m going to do this I have to do it on my own.... just like every other endeavor I try. I have yet to sell a book, but apparently, I haven’t been picking the right ones either. So, the first box that I thought was like $150 in profit is more like $30. Lesson learned. Box #2 is about 2/3 full and on hold till I make a trip and get some more to fill it.
Moving on.... Destiny informed me that Jake would be coming with her to pick me up at the airport on the 24th of May. He asked and she couldn’t tell him no. She just wanted to warn me. lol, It’s fine. I’d also like to get the awkward out of the way as soon as we can so we can enjoy our time together. Maybe, be comfortable enough to have real conversations before Rocky comes. I honestly don’t understand how people do this. Be friends with exes. Destiny will help she’s friends with most of hers. The man before her fiance she claims was her Jim. Made her heart leap with the sound of his voice, he’s going to be IN her wedding.... smh claiming she doesn’t have feelings for him anymore. They are just gone. This has me wondering if she ever had them to begin with as my heart still stops when I hear Jim’s voice. So, we will see how this all goes. I mean Jake is not Jim, at all, lol.
Did I tell you our A/C wasn’t working?. Over the weekend it was 82 degrees and I had no A/C. 3 days with the doors open and Rocky getting shit for sleep for being so hot. It took forever to get ahold of the guy. I wanted to make sure it was the same guy who we bought it from as we’ve only had it a year. He finally came Monday. Turned out to cost us $65 for the diagnostic but he got it back to running. Dirty Compressor he said. We scheduled a cleaning for Friday around noon and that will cost us another $75. We figured out why it happened and how to prevent it..... but it’s still got to be cleaned at least this year. Todd would have his kid mow while he ran the weed eater. Apparently, his kid just shot grass into it, so that’s cool. Rocky knows better, so that shouldn’t happen again.
After I get Rocky up at 7, I intend to have a quiet day at home. I’m a bit behind on my goals on MTurk and with plans to leave the house over the weekend, I need to get on it. If I go with Rocky I’m going to miss at least 2 drops that’s a good 4 bucks off a 31$ goal today. I’d also asked him to pick up a couple of things at Walmart when he gets out though. It kind of scares me to trust him to not screw that up. However, if I go when we leave we will likely grab something to eat and I’ve got an addiction to not eating at home. If I don’t go it’s the normal Laundry, dishes, MTurk. If I do go maybe I can convince him to hit another GoodWill here and possibly fill this box and not go to the outlet?.... guess we will see how this day goes.... time to get him up
