Keeping up with my retinas

April 11th, 2018 at 02:48 pm

Hmmmm today I logged on and see my new avatar loaded, the one that wouldn't work last week! Weird! So now I'm showing my 'beach cat' body! (Do you see a cat on a beach? Or the cat with purple wig, which was my original picture?)

On Monday, I went to the retina specialist for my 3 month checkup. My retina is healed and still attached, woo hoo. Now it's time for the second surgery, to remove the silicon oil. The earliest available is May 9. I was hoping it could be sooner, but it's fine. He is going to perform a laser procedure on my other eye at the same time, as that retina is thinning, so I won't have an emergency later. I'm excited to get two things done at once.

I'm doing great on groceries. As of yesterday, spent $93.21 out of $330. It's time to cook more food, so going to Safeway to get a special on rotisserie chicken (saving bones and carcass for broth), plus some frozen broccoli and hamburger patties. I bought the small bowl of fruit at the work cafe. Pineapple, green grapes, orange segments, honeydew and cantaloupe. Plus some pumpkin seeds! I got a bangin' deal last weekend on a small piece of halibut. It was marked 50% off but rang up 75% off.

MONEY: Chase paid me the $300 bonus for my new checking account, but not the $200 for savings yet. Which is weird, because I fulfilled the savings requirement right away, but not the checking yet. Hopefully I won't have to make a stink about it... I have some mature savings bonds to cash next month, so I will visit my local branch and complain if I haven't received it by then. I still have not been able to get a focus group gig, or any online surveys worth anything. I wonder if I pretended that I made minimum wage and had 3 small children, if I would generate more interest? But why aren't any companies interested in a middle age woman with no debt and a lot of disposable income??

    Also, it seems to me that when I did the Chase deal, I had to wait for the savings bonus to kick in. Can't remember what they were waiting for, but I was told about it up front.

    Hmm strange that some see the old pic, some see the new. Isn't life interesting!

    Regarding the Chase savings promo, I wonder if that bonus is delayed until after the first 90 days, to make sure my balance doesn't dip below the $15,000 minimum.

    I see the old cat, but I'm sure that is because I haven't erased my cookies lately. Glad to hear your eyes have healed up. It is scary when things go wrong with our eye health.

    Yay on your retina! Good news indeed.

    Good job on the groceries.

    I see the purple wig cat with the funky green glasses.
