Got the official word on the special assessment. It is $3498. I'm going to pay it in full, although financing was offered. I'll write a check once the transfer goes through from savings to checking. I had been hoping to charge it, in order to get the cash back reward, but I don't think that's an option.
I transferred $3900 instead of $3500, getting my numbers mixed up off the top of my head! Well, checking is low, anyway, because of the electricians' bill, so I'm going to let it stay there. It will eventually get swept back when I start building back my EF. Right now I'm just in survival mode.
My knee is worse again, after one day of moderate activity. So it's back to rest and inactivity.
