I’ve been pretty MIA since I moved into my new place and I have no idea why. I wish I could blame it on being super busy, but that’s not the case. I think I’m just trying to settle into some sort of routine and I’ve still yet to figure it out. Also I have nothing interesting to post. I’ll try to make this post somewhat read worthy, but don’t fault me if it’s boring.
My first mortgage payment came out yesterday as well as my critical illness and disability insurance and boy are those automatic withdraws going to totally mess with the schedule I’ve got made for bill payments. I’m a little OCD when it comes to my money, and how I pay my bills. Instead of the withdraw being 1 every 2 weeks (like I thought), they are 2 separate transactions, so now I have 4 automatic withdrawals a month; instead of 2. This would all be well and good if I didn’t have a limit as to how many withdrawals I’m allowed before being charged, but I do. So needless to say this has somewhat annoyed me. I spent the better part of last night trying to figure out how to work around my 10 withdrawals a month. I still need to call the bank and find out if a transfer counts against my 10 because I do 2 transfers a month. 1 to my savings account and 1 to my yearly account and if they do count I’m going to have to put all my bills onto my credit card which is not something I really wanted to do.
Cogeco is still causing me issues. I called them back the other day after stopping into their little hole in the wall at the local mall. I want some sort of paper that states I have a credit on my account and what it’s for because I have this gut feeling that something is going to get messed up. I was unsuccessful at obtaining a copy of anything, however I was able to see my account so I know that I have my 2 months free of cable and phone, it’s just the credit I’m worried about. Currently it shows up as a $30 credit and I requested a credit for my cable, so I’ve been told I have to wait till I actually receive a bill in order to know how much the credit should be. This just sounds totally ridiculous to me so I’m pretty frustrated with it all.
In other house news, I still have yet to decorate. I’ve got a bunch of stuff laid out on the floor in the spare bedroom but I haven’t really figured out where I want things to go, other then in my office. That will probably be the first room to get done since I spend at least an hr and a half every night in here. My goal is to get my cork board and desk calendar hung before the end of the month. It’s really frustrating not being able to use them.
Oh, Please excuse the question, but What is a funded proposal? Sorry! A girls gotta make some extra cash any way she can.
