Bookish (and not so bookish) Thoughts

This post contains an affiliate link.
Bookish and Not-So-Bookish Thoughts is a weekly blogging event hosted by Bookishly Boisterous. It allows book bloggers (and non-book bloggers) to write about pretty much anything, bookish or otherwise (i.e. share exciting plans for the weekend, rants on things they’ve encountered during the week, etc.).
1. Bought a sale book on kobo* a couple of weeks ago. I accidentally hit the wrong account through paypal and ended up getting hit with an Non-Sufficient Funds fee. I hit up the bank chat and asked if it was possible to get the fee reversed because it was an accident and the original charge was less than a dollar. (It was 99¢ total.) The representative then gave me "courtesy fee waive" (her words).
Seriously, it never hurts to ask. 😉

2. They finally came on Friday to fix the air conditioner. Unfortunately, whatever is wrong with it is not an easy fix and a part has to be ordered. It took them forever to come fix it, but now that they have been here, they went above and beyond. They brought us a temporary A/C unit and offered us fans. Since I had already gone to my dad's to borrow two, we opted to not borrow theirs as well. The part should be here on Tuesday. D:

3. Yay for easy Swagbucks SWAGO boards! It's just ncraves. A bit tedious, but not a whole lot of "work" to get a minimum of 74SB per day without really trying. I tend to go on and off on this site. Come on, book fund! *^-^*

4. Getting started bullet journaling again. I did really well with a notebook, but when I switched to a traditional planner... I got stuck. I think I've figured out my main issue and am trying normal pages instead of premade calendar ones. Mostly I switched to a planner because I wanted to be able to take the pages out and move them around as necessary.

5. A/C fixed on Wednesday.

Until next time! .~*💘Shannon

  1. So glad you got your AC fixed...and that bank reversal does remind us that sometimes officials can be great!

    Enjoy your week, and here are MY BOOKISH/NOT SO BOOKISH THOUGHTS

    1. I think my bank allows so many NSF waives a year. I haven't had it happen in a long time and for less than $1 I was like.... come on!

      And yes, A/C! They did give us a portable one (which they still haven't taken back ?!?!?!) so we were pretty comfortable enough until it got fixed. But, I've glad to have the real one up and running again!
