I went to the bank and added to my cash stash:

Some $1 bills
Some $5 bills

Wanted to make sure that I could pay with exact amount in cash if needed. The Wannacry Virus has affected some banks and ATMs world wide, and I don't see why it couldn't also affect the credit/debit machines as well, as they to have to run through a computer somewhere. With that said, financial institutions are working on updating their software; so this could end up being a nothing here in the U.S. I just rather be safe than sorry; and if nothing happens, I haven't lost anything.

  • I earned $39.75 in cash back from the dental payment. I used $30 of the reward to purchase needed dental supplies and earned a $5 Target gc.

  • In 2011, I flipped 90% off clearance at near retail. I took the money and reinvested it into Swedish currency at 25% under face value. Sweden issued new currency and the Riksbank is now terminating the bills I purchased. I resold the bills today for a $25 profit. I am going to take the money, find clearance to resell and take the profits to invest into Euros. I own 4 different currencies: American, Canadian, Swedish (kronor coins worth $44) and Euros.

  • Just when I thought I could put the dental behind me, the minor infection turned into a major infection. Due to allergies and being way worn down, it threw my body into a tailspin. I am now home sleeping most of the day while taking z packs and pain pills. I am so thankful that I have a great man in my life. He has not judged me. He holds my hand or holds me (especially when I have chills or in pain). He wears green socks because he knows that I think they are cute and cheers me up. He is checking on me often and doing his best to take care and protect me. As sick as I am, I do recognize that he is showing me his potential husband side (especially after he spoke about wanting children). Right now, I am focusing on finishing my transformation over this year.

  • Monkey, did you know that said virus attacked the NHS in England and Ireland? I also read that there is a new skimmer device that can be placed far back into the ATM machine undetected. I believe the ATM at the new bank is near the lobby. I will just go to the teller (especially after my recent loss). I have more than enough cash around to deal with anything during non-banking hours. On that note, I happily kicked the old bank to the curb.

6 low spend days.
