Just a quick update on my week and my trip to see the doctor today. Didn’t really accomplish anything but tell me what i already knew (again), and now have to go back again next Monday to see yet another specialist qualified to stick needles in peoples necks. So my anxiety has time to build a little more instead of an answer today with it being over. The irony in all this is that 3 of my ex’s have been doctors…LOL! Anyways, have a watch and will talk to you guys over the weekend.
Hey everyone. Not much going on lately, except I am SO ready to get rid of my house and move to a far away country.
As you may know, I encountered an unexpected major expense to the money pit that I call home. My furnace finally went kaput on a day when it was in the low teens. As owner of this home for almost 20 years, this was to be somewhat expected. I had hoped that I could wait until the spring to replace the furnace and air conditioner for both financial and logistic reasons. Unfortunately, this was not to be the case for me. Not only did I have to incur the burden of an almost $6,000.00 HVAC bill, I also had a gas leak and a carbon monoxide leak due to the crapped out furnace to deal with.
As a single guy who lives alone, I had to take off of work to wait for Nicor (our natural gas provider) to check out the gas leak and carbon monoxide problem, as well as find a suitable HVAC installer. Waiting around all day long in a cold house for repair men and installers to show up over a course of almost a week gets really annoying, to say the least.
So while I was waiting around, spinning my wheels, I decided to work on ways to raise some money to pay for this expense. Most of you know that I also DJ on the side, which does help tremendously, but with the dilapidated laptop that I have, my gigs are somewhat unreliable. As such, the income from that source suffers. My goal was to purchase a Macbook Pro this month as a replacement and then start working more DJ gigs to generate more income. Unfortunately, the fund for the Macbook Pro had to be used for the furnace.
