Tidbits from yesterday

June 10th, 2009 at 12:56 am

1. I managed to fixed the holes and cracks, I'm just waiting for it to dry and it will need sanding down. Got rid of all the wallpaper and have done some sanding on some areas.

Got some very interest mails yesterday:
2. One was from my stockbroker who wants me to sell my shares of this particular stock...hmmm I don't think so.

3. Another one was from our water company, they are giving us $25 credit because 2 months ago our street got flooded because of burst pipe down the road and they couldn't fix it within 4hours. We didn't even know that they have such rule. It was a nice suprise.

4. The last mail was for DH's credit card bill, with it was an application form for an additional card holder. They will give you $20 if you sign up (no annual fee for this card). I've been thinking about getting one. I've never had a credit card in my name (it's all in DH's name), nor do I really want one. But there has been times when I wish I had one in my name. Last month for example when our hot water broke, paying for the repair was a pain. I had to ring DH at work, who had to ring their office to pay for it and then had to ring me back to comfirm the payment to the repair guy. But other than that I really don't want one. DH thinks that we should sign up just to get the $20 and then close it off. Would you do it?

- I need to do a load of washing.
- Do more sanding and make sure everything is smooth for painting.

    I'd do it for the $20. Also if you don't have a CC I would do it anyway, it seems like a good one if there is no annual fee. Also it's different here than in the US, it's not going to 'affect your credit score' (man, I am so glad we don't have to worry about things like that lol, it seems like a whole lot of stress over a silly number) if you just close it after a few months. it'll just show up on your credit history (well - it might CREATE your credit history if you have never had a credit card Big Grin)
