My bank is never going to move

I am having an awful time thinking of anything to write. I have been responding to discussions and commenting on responses on my discussions. I am interacting, but I usually have to post something new to get any motion. I had the three hour class this morning. I went to Dollar General for cleaning products and snacks for hubby. That is not exciting at all. Neither is my breakfast of raisin bran and lunch of peanut butter sandwich. It is 100 degrees outside. Food just seems a bit off. I am fielding doctor's calls for my family members. I took a nap, wasn't that exciting? It was really relaxing. In spite of the heat I likely should get busy with some of those cleaning supplies I bought. If my bank does not move, so be it. I have enjoyed reading a bit on your posts and will likely be back later.

I find my bank moves the quickest when I am in my notifications having a conversation with people who've responded to my replies, comments or discussions. Don't worry about the bank. It freezes from time-to-time. Don't get discouraged. I've done quite well, and I haven't put nearly in much effort. Just learned to pace myself and when to hit those discussions.

Usually that is true for me, but today it has just sat there. I just do not feel I have anything interesting to share today.

I very rarely write a new discussion and my bank moves just fine. I spend a lot of my time just talking with people here and they respond. (I do tend to tease a lot and talk nonsense with a few people, though. I'm having fun and making some small change doing it. )

What small change? Yes, I too have noticed once you start charting with the people, banks move fine.

@DaddyEvil and I am at 36 cents this month. But that is fine. I was not on the site for much time these days.

@sjvg1976 Well, I'm at $3.50 for the month so far. I've been having a lot of fun teasing Sam lately. You've joined in on some of those discussions. (He said he might not be here very much this weekend. But I don't know what he's busy with. He didn't say and I didn't want to ask.)

I don't post too much because I never get around to all the notifications as it is . Well, I guess not all days and things have to be exciting . . . it just is . . . that's life .

I limit the types of notifications I get, so they stay manageable. I do try to comment on every response I get on my posts. No, things are not always exciting. Right now they are mostly hot.

@much2say I get tired of doing that. Sometimes I feel like I should comment back to all of the notifications I get and sometimes I get lazy and just open them and read and close them.

I went thru a bit of a dry spell like that last month. You just have to find and hit your reset button.

@GardenGerty You have your cats which you love to post on, me, its the twins, JJ used to be the cats, the deer, the full moons and the racoons or any random wildlife that wandered onto the premises of his zoo. There is something really comforting about the same old same old isn't there?

I almost never write and of course my bank only moves if/when people reply back to my comments, that is not all the time the case.

I make very little unless I'm continually posting. Nothing much happens in our new place but maybe I'll find new topics when we go house-sitting. I hope so. And I don't mind reading about your day-to-day routines.

Partly I am in a slump. Partly I am just waiting for things to happen. We cannot really go anywhere or do anything due to hubby having to have treatments late in the afternoon every day.

Mine hasn't moved much for awhile lately either but I've been binge watching a show I never saw when it came out. Now that I finished it's seven years worth I'm sure I'll be here more again. So you have any flowers? People are usually interested in hearing about and seeing our flowers.

The recent hot spells have pretty much taken out the flowers. I have herbs. I am potting up lots of red basil because I was so blessed with it reseeding itself this year.

@GardenGerty I've never had luck with red basil before but then I rarely get herbs planted in the ground. Yeah the heat certainly doesn't help out gardens.

I have been to the Dollar General store twice and so far the prices are not impressing me. The store is much smaller than Walmart and for me, that is perfect. It also had a window curtain and bath mats for the inside of the tubs- I will pay a little higher price for the convenience and the need. Falling in the tub will cost a lot more!

I find that the prices are pretty comparable to Wal Mart for the items they have. They do not have so many things. That is okay for me. That is also why I like Aldi. Difference is it takes 15 minutes or less to get to DG, 40 minutes or more to get to WM, and over an hour to get to Aldi. That does not even take into consideration the gas prices. I found a new cleaning product yesterday that I am really liking. Bitty is bad mannered about her toilet habits. I have used Odoban in the past. DG had Lavender Odorban and it is pleasant and effective for a reasonable price. Some of the pet specific cleaners cost over ten and as much as $17 for a spray bottle. I paid $3.50.
