done with the heavy lifting

December 4th, 2011 at 02:35 am

I'm almost done with the deciding about who to give and what to get them for Xmas, and with the exception of one item, I am done with shopping for the hardest recipient: MIL. Since she now has a Nook, I aimed for a couple of BN gift cards hidden in a homemade cheese-based gift basket. Collection phase is over, wrapping, packing and shipping remains.

Noticed that two of my dividend stocks WEC and SYY are raising their dividend. WEC especially is nice - 6 cent per share increase. To cheer me up because stock prices are so volatile, I totaled the dividend payments I would get if I stopped now and decided not to re-invest. $260.

Last night I lost my ATM card at the grocery store. Today I appeared at the credit union, bright eyed and managed to get a new card in about 15 minutes. I'll miss that (the CU at the grocery store is leaving as of Monday). I rarely lose stuff, so it was fortunate I got it all over with. I mentioned their move and the guy who got me the new card told me that they will keep one of the two ATMs, but will remove it as soon as another bank or CU goes into that space.

Finished the first week w/o our boss, who is on maternity leave. One down, twenty five more to go.

    That's too bad you lost your card, but good that you were able to get a replacement so easily.

    We went to the new Northgate BECU and I said it was sad that Greenwood, dense as it is, was left with not even an ATM. The woman, who we guessed worked at Greenwood, said that the outlet was too small for its bounty of new customers.

    The Northgate BECU is large. Its design is similar to Pike & 2nd, but it is at least as large as Ballard or Lake City. Hilariously it is sited where a payday lending business formerly stood.

    I made a pitstop to Safeway. The BECU is gone along with the ATM next to it. The ATM near the checkout tho is still around. That, and that you always get cashback for free works for me.
