Keeping You In Stitches

Archive for June 2014

Dear Paypal…..

I live in Costa Rica; it is in Central America; it is part of the real world!!!

I’m wondering how many merchants that use Paypal are aware that they may say “ship worldwide”; but when I try to purchase something and have it shipped to Costa Rica, I get a notice saying “Paypal doesn’t ship to this country”.

First of all Paypal, you aren’t shipping anything; you’re just collecting the money; but to top it off, I can’t even put it on a credit card because “Paypal doesn’t ship to this country”.

And yes, I have money in a Paypal account and would love to be able to spend it; but again, “Paypal doesn’t ship to this country.”

I’m going to start notifying the merchants that even tho’ they ship worldwide, Paypal won’t accept the order… saying “Paypal doesn’t ship to this country.”

Again, just what is Paypal shipping?

This has happened twice today….and yep, I notified both merchants!


bingo towels

Up early this morning and thinking about Bingo on June 14th.   Everyone takes a prize for the table for those lucky enough to Bingo…..we have yet to Bingo!  Decided I would do dish towels, everyone can use them, right? One for every day of the week!

My metal drying rack “died” because of the plastic joins on it so we decided to head to EPA to find another one. When we moved here almost 3 years ago, I bought the drying rack for $50 and nearly choked! Well, today the price was $100!!!! Decided that if I need to dry the clothes, I’ll pay the electricity to use the dryer! Try to use it sparingly, so as long as I can get up early, and use the “outdoor” dryer, I’ll be fine…..I do use the dryer, just not as freely as I did in the U.S.

We went to EPA near Cariari Mall just for a change of scenery. Then we decided to go to Wal-Mart (I rarely shop there!) and lo and behold, they did not have what we were looking for – an electric swiffer vac. In the U.S. when I couldn’t find what I needed, the last place I’d go was Wal-Mart and I could usually find what I was looking for. Oh well, we didn’t need it…as Mark says “you hardly used it”.

I’m still figuring out this retirement thing; he got a life change; I get to do the same old stuff! Sheesh!

After wandering around Belen for what seemed like hours, we finally pulled out the GPS to head home; and yep, you guessed it, it took us pretty much back where we were!

Coming home I got something in my eye, it was very sharp; kept trying to rub it out, couldn’t produce tears to get it out….as we got off 27, I told Mark he had to stop at Victoria’s because she needed to get out whatever was in my eye! She looked…couldn’t see anything and then put drops in my eye, that burned to high heaven! I told her it’s in the corner….and then she saw it….used a q-tip to get out a gray piece of something….well, when we got home, I went to open the car door, and voila! I found what was in my eye….the plastic was coming off the door handle. Gotta get some duck tape on that too!

Big sigh…..and tomorrow will be another day!
