Pay Day, For Real

September 16th, 2014 at 03:03 pm

Today the paycheck was deposited in my account. Profuse apologies from the business office for the delay -- I'm just so glad that things like that don't affect me any more.

I made my mortgage and credit card payments. I did not "sweep" the extra into savings this time; I will keep it in checking for an expected larger credit card bill.

My DIL returned my car last night after work, and I drove her to the El. I really wanted to take her to her hotel, but she was insistent that she would be fine on the train, which went straight to the hotel. Since my granddaughter was already safely tucked away at the hotel with her other grandmother, I complied. My GPS then directed me back home on a main Chicago street, but not familiar to me. It was interesting to drive through neighborhoods in Chicago. They are not so far away from me, but the style of life is so different!

On the way home, I stopped at Home Depot to pick up some cabinetry hardware I had ordered online. Since I was also near PetSmart, I stopped and got fish food. Two errands done.

I goofed up at work yesterday -- didn't pick up a message on my phone (thought it was a vendor). So I didn't know that someone needed something from me. Had to play catch-up this morning and eat crow. Oh, me. I hate acting like a senior citizen! But things like this make me feel like I SHOULD retire, and not even think about a new job!

    Eh... it happens to everyone. Just because they left a voicemail doesn't mean you heard it right away.
