I just hate that feeling of standing at the banking ATM waiting for my passbook to up-date. The more “ch-ch-ching-ching’s” I hear from the machine, the more nervous I get, knowing full well that those transactions are stacking up under “withdrawal” column. Then there is that moment of anticipation, as I hold my breath and scan the bottom line hoping not to see the dreaded “-“ sign.
Luckily, since my chemo started, I have experienced a phenomenon called “Bank Account Recovery”. Each chemo knocks me down for at least a week to ten days, days that I am rendered unable to shop. I have been pleasantly surprised at the reduction in my banking transactions, and the resulting bottom line. Folks, I’m not kidding you, since getting cancer, I have literally HUNDREDS of dollars in the bank! Now that chemo has ended, I think it may be time to treat myself to a little shopping spree.
Tip: On those days that you are not well enough to shop, consider it money in the bank.
