Quiet Week

It is so quiet this week with so many people on vacation. There were only 2 other people in the office today. I didn't bring a dog because I brought one yesterday, my own dog Jimmie, and he was a pain. He wanted to run around and he barked when I wouldn't let him. I finally took him for a walk and then chased him around the building a few times to tire him out and he went to sleep.

When I got home today I checked the mail, hopeful that I got another stock check. No, I didn't. I actually got another one of my letters marked return to sender. I hate wasting stamps like that. I am all out of stamps now. Also in the mail was my $50 check for taking surveys. That was probably 6 months of surveys. I was looking forward to having a few extra dollars but then I opened the next letter and it was a bill for $86 for the last doctor's appointment that I went to. I was hoping that would somehow go away. My dog's license renewal notice showed up this week too. $34 for shots, $15 for a license. I'll have to take care of that in the next few weeks.

I found the correct address for the stock and stuffed the form in to a new envelope. Maybe I will see a check in two more weeks. I would like to get them all sold before the end of the year and that is approaching very quickly.

I do the surveys also for some extra spending money and I have gotten several perks for doing tests in my home of different products. I am lucky since I can do them from my computer at work, usually a couple a week. This way it really is extra money since I am getting paid at work also. If you can't fit them into your life very easily they are not that profitable. I don't think I make more than a few hundred a year.

Have a wonderful holiday, Daisy!

daisy, once you have your mortgage paid off you might find the hassles of work a little less stressful and if you continue there for a while you might find it more and more tolerable as you build a nice savings balance.

at least this has been my experience.

Dot, doing surveys at work would be very convenient. I do them in the evening but I think I am too busy for them now. A few hundred does sound great.

Petunia, thanks. You have a good holiday too! I hope you are warmer than I am right now.

Anonymous, we will soon see I hope, if I ever manage to pay it off.
