With less time to myself, and with tons of time to spend with my constantly getting into everything toddler, I find that managing our money has gone to the wayside. I know what's going on, and I'm not afraid anything is going to bounce or I'll forget to pay something because I tend to store things in my brain fairly well.
But today was the topper. I have a HUGE pile of receipts to go through, as well as going through charges and debits that don't have a receipt, and getting it all squared away on Quicken.
On Friday I remembered we got a Comcast bill a week or so ago, and I didn't remember if I had paid it or not, so I assumed I didn't. I got online, paid the bill, which was higher than normal because of a pay-per-view charge, and all was good in the world again.
Today I was going through our online bank statement and saw some random check I didn't remember writing. I clicked on the link to view the image, and low and behold - it was a check for Comcast. I had paid the bill and didn't remember.
So now another huge chunk of money will be taken from our account. Good news is now we're paid up for a month and a half. If you could call that good news.
The really bad news is that I've lost it...finally lost it.
