Another Gorgeous Sunny Day
It was yet another beautiful sunny day. Despite the heat, I was still able to get a fairly good night’s sleep. We’re already half through summer so I want to appreciate these nice days as much as possible.
Another Paper Clearing Day
I did another paper clearing day today. Although I’ve made some headway, I still have piles of paper that I need to get through. I’m the type of hoarder that will take different paper and throw it into a pile. I figure that I will eventually get to it. But I rarely do.
Although it’s neatly put into a pile or box or whatever, it’s out of sight, out of mind so I miss out on things. I’m good with bills and rarely misplace any so that they are paid late but for other stuff, I can miss out.
This is like having a huge junk drawer-everything is thrown in there to get it out of the way. People seldom sort it out. Or at least most hoarders seldom do. So now, I’ve been trying to sort through my paper and it’s a huge task.
And because I’m such a green person, I’ve been trying to put it all into the right recycling piles, too. I have already accumulated 3 big bags which I can get rid of. But I still have more to go.
Another Bank Visit
I had to go out today to visit another bank. I opened a credit card at a gas station one day. It lured me in by a promise of air miles. I signed up, fully expecting them to reject me since I’m not even working full-time but for some odd reason, they sent me a card.
I had to make a purchase and then they granted me the bonus air miles. Now, I had to make a payment. I tried to make the payment via my online banking but for some reason, I wasn’t able to do so. I tried calling my bank for assistance but the banker was not able to figure it out either.
So I went to visit the bank where the card is issued yesterday, but it was closed by the time I got there. I was really annoyed because that means my payment will be late. I hate it when payments are late, even one day.
I went to the closest branch a few blocks away. It was a pleasant walk. I had never been to this bank before and it was really modern. I got a friendly chatty teller who processed the payment quickly. I expressed concern over it being a day late and he said to not worry, the interest might be pennies.
I managed to work on my retail blog today for a while. I had intended on working on my paper problem only but I needed a break, to do something different. I still haven’t forgotten about my plan to get my online retail store ready by the fall either.
When I made that plan in my head, it seemed like fall was such a long time away. But here it is, almost August. I don’t have much time at all. I’m going to give myself only a short time more to work on getting rid of my paper and then I’ll have to move on and concentrate on my online retail store.
