It thundered for hours last night. The lightening was so bright it woke me and one of the kidlets up. The air quality is hovering in the mid 100’s which is still unhealthy, but I have things to do I’ve put off for over a week now. So I must venture into it.
I did some research and found a supplement, (NAC) an amino acid, that supports the liver. It is supposedly even use in the emergency rooms for acetaminophen overdoses. I’ve also ordered some milk thistle suppositories. I’m gonna do all I can to make it to be a healthy grandma, one day (no time soon). This also includes not drinking alcohol. While I still miss and crave it sometimes, I am finding it easier to not do so. Must also be because I’m not all that social right now anyway.
I ordered Doordash last night and accidentally charged it onto Brad’s credit card. It had defaulted to it and I didn’t realize it until after it was ordered. But tell me, why does food you don’t pay for taste even better than if you paid for it? Lol. I’ll pay him back. I made him aware of it and he says to me “I would have never known, had you not told me”.
I don’t even understand that. Like I genuinely can’t comprehend that mindset. I’ve never in my life had the luxury of not monitoring my accounts. Right now not a single bank or credit card transaction over $1 occurs without a notification of some sort; be it text or email. I’m way on top of it.
This was hammered into me after being penalized over $300 in overdraft fees one time because my ex and I made a few charges on our joint account before his direct deposit got posted. One of those charges was a $1.99 french fry order. That was a very brutal lesson.
Now I have low balance notification set-up. I have overdraft turned off, so the charges get declined instead of charged, where that to ever happen again. Which I can’t see happening, but just in case.
But to not have any concerns about what gets charged. To not even be aware of it. I think that can be seen as both a true blessing in life and also completely irresponsible. No? It’s really no surprise he isn’t well off. He has made enough money in his life, that had he saved or invested properly he would be doing great right now but his father is rich. So I suppose having wealthy parents that bail one out can make one a bit lackadaisical about finances. I really wouldn’t know.
I’m happy for him though; especially in his present condition. And you’d think maybe this would make me apt to abuse his generosity, but it doesn’t. I am ever grateful for all the things he has done and still does for me. I just don’t want to be dependant on it.
I took this picture. It’s the door of the Chinese restaurant we ate at the other night. I couldn’t help it. I laughed so hard. It just seemed so appropriate for this era. “Sorry accepted”.
But I guess the time for sorry’s, while still accepted , must also now come with real change. Right?
But it does feel good to laugh.
