I got back into the swim of things with my hour at the pool before running the wheelchair I used at the conference back to the Mobility store. B and I usually have a long, leisurely chat Monday mornings, but yesterday she was driving on her way to her crit group and I was struggling with our banking. We talked later in fits and starts.
For some reason G hadn’t balanced the three accounts since March 1 though every item had been deducted. So….I didn’t deposit the tax refunds, I didn’t buy dinner only breakfasts and lunches, and I didn’t have a money/security issue fit. I did make it to the cleaners with our fineries, but I didn’t spend any money waiting till he got home. And he got home early.
“Well I got busy,” he said. And he had been exceptionally busy, and I think he forgot.
Later he told me, “I thought there was plenty of money in the accounts.”
Yes, once he entered all the totals and we made it to the bank, we found there’s tons of money in the accounts and he’s hanging his head after apologizing. We have been saving ever since he got this job. I don’t think he will forget things like money in the excitement of a new job ever again. We all hope that this is the last job ever, actually. He starts next Wednesday though his pay started yesterday.
I was able to turn it all over, dig into my latest essay…which of course developed differently than I had planned, and I finished, edited, and printed it out before grilled cheese sandwiches, melon slices, and squash soup for dinner.
Pantries and savings accounts are wonderful things.
