Coming Out the Other Side

I am back to no bank account after going through three banks. This time I overdrew my account massively, and could not cover my overdraft. I created the overdraft paying bills I could not afford to pay. Now all of them have to wait. Chase closed out my account and put it into collections. That's ok. I will pay off the account to the collection agency.

In October I will be paying the few bills I can with money orders. Money Tree will cash my checks. By the way, I owe them, too. I will… Continue

The Adventures of Ziva!

Ziva is a mighty fine dog. She lets me know when she has to go out. She toilets outside 95% of the time. When she doesn't it's usually my fault.

We went to Ziva's first service dog training class this past Saturday. It meant that Ziva had to ride buses, something she had never done. She rode like a pro. After the first couple of buses, where I had to go on first, she went on first like she's supposed to do. Altogether we rode eight buses for a total of five hours. By the time we went… Continue
