Taking Care of Business

This morning at 1 a.m., I visited my bank and used the night depository to deposit a check. It felt odd "doing business" at that time, but if you cannot sleep, you might as well do what you can when and how you can do it!

I was unable to sleep until after 4:30 a.m., so I did not wake up until about 8:30. I made a phone call to the credit union at 9:45 a.m., concerned that it was not yet showing. An hour ago, the deposit was reflected in the account, and that is one more thing that I can check off my to-do list.

I have gathered up the DVDs and books that I want to return to the library today, so that is next on my list.

I also need to use a computer with a printer, so that I can download the forms to transfer my 401K over to the newly opened IRA at my credit union, which I opened on Friday. I can do that at the library for 10 cents a page, so that will save time, and will be less expensive than going to FedEx/Kinkos.

In the next day or two, I am going to call my cable company to likely have cable television turned off. Before I do so, I need to see if I have a television that is "smart," so that I can hook it up to my computer lines and watch Netflix or Hulu. A friend was telling me that might be a better, and cheaper, option for me.

I also need get busy with finding a primary care provider, talk to the social security administration about options, and maybe find an attorney. These are the things that cause me the most stress, but I need to see it as business/work/project, rather than the pain-in-the-butt that it is...they are.

I am trying to make sure that I do not allow myself to be overwhelmed, so if I can accomplish one or two things a day, rather than put a list of 100 things down, I am better off. When I start making lists, I feel it necessary to do so many things in a one or two day period. That is crazy-making.

I already spent some time here with notifications, and putting up a post or two. If I can get into the habit of doing these things, then I will develop some consistency in my life. I would call that "innovation," if I look at my patterns!

Step by babystep will get you through it. A little at a time will make a dent in the biggest mountain.

You can also buy a Roku box to hook up to your tv. They wirelessly connect to your internet and stream netflix plus many others

A friend of mine had her cable shut off and got Netflix instead, and she loves it. Particularly for its variety in programming for young kids (she has three). I considered it myself but it doesn't carry current episodes of the shows I like.

Thank you for the recommendation. I have not heard of that before.

I understand that Netflix and Hulu combined are less expensive that most cable companies.

Check out Roku for streaming. I used them. They have Netflix and Hulu and plug into vour tv.

Cool. That's the 2nd time I've heard that recommendation.

lexiconlover wrote on July 28, 2015, 9:58 AM

It's worth it. Do you have Netflix now?

We have one of those on the old spare tv. I use it a lot during football season lol. But I also bought a smart blu-ray player for our main tv. It was a lot cheaper than getting a smart tv. I can even access facebook with the blu-ray player
