Something is wrong with my cat

September 24, 2020
To top everything else off, my cat has been acting strangely. She keeps getting off balance and scratching her ears. Took her to the vet today. She said it could be an ear infection or something else. The something else may have been a stroke or a brain tumor. Only an MRI can tell. And…

    Before you know it, it will be the end of the month and time to pay rent again. I had a talk with my daughter. She is going to start paying half the rent now. She wasn't before but should have been. I was making more than her so I paid more. But now the…

    Well I managed to pay my rent late but they are not charging late fees for now so that's good. Still not sure what I am going to do about the unemployment repayment yet. I can do a payment plan but I really don't have a lot of money right now. So I will probably…

    August 24, 2020
    I was down to $33 to my name with all my bills and rent coming up. I was getting desperate. I had to borrow some money from my daughter who is still working. Unemployment was reviewing my case. Mind you I haven't received benefits since the end of May. In the meantime, I had to…

    June 6, 2020

  • Another month down
    June 1, 2020
    I can't wait for this year to be over. It's been horrible so far. And keeps getting worse. I live in a suburb of Chicago and there has been a lot of protests in the city and even in suburbs. Some are peaceful but a lot of them aren't. There's been looting at malls, fires…

  • I’m officially retired
    May 30, 2020
    Well I'm retired. The spa is opening back up on Monday and I won't be there. I am really happy right now. I don't think I wanted to go back even before the pandemic occurred. This just made the choice easier. I went back into the spa just to pick up a few things from…

    May 19, 2020
    Well I spoke with the owner, she said they are hoping to reopen on June 1st or possibly the 15th depending on the state requirement as to the curve of new cases going down.  So I have at least another 2 weeks to go. She went over all the new rules and quite frankly, I…
