A little quirk this week...
A couple of weeks ago I tried to pay off a balance on a credit card for my store. I always make payments online- so I did that. I paid the balance due. But, that amount did not include alittle more interest, an amount of $67.57. So I went online this week to pay that amount. When I get to the website it says, balance $67.57. It also says minimum payment due in April is $68.00. So I put in the $67.57 as the amount that I want to pay. It won't let me pay that amount because it is less than the payment amount that is due. So, I decide, okay, I'll pay the $68.00. When I put in that amount to pay- I can't pay that either, because it is more than the balance on the account. lol
Then I am hunting around on the website for a phone number to call, to talk to someone. I see that there is a fee for making a payment over the phone. (I'm thinking, okay, I'm not paying that fee- but I call to talk to someone anyway) To make a long story short- if I pay over the phone using a real person then I have to pay the fee. If I pay on the phone using the automated system there is no fee. So I paid $67.57 that way :) I hope that I am really done with that card.

I have been at Sam and Audrey's house almost two weeks- it's time to go home. Ron flew to Dallas on Friday evening so that he could spend alittle time here and then drive back home with me today. We are almost ready to go to church with Audrey and Sam, and then we will head back to Houston. For me I have to go back to reality- no more getting up whenever I wake up. Back to the alarm at 5:35. No more doing whatever I want- it's back to work next week. It has been great to be here and spend some time with Aud- mostly just moral support :) We did alittle shopping, alittle vacation planning, and alittle decorating in Eli's room. Audrey and Sam are great new parents. Somehow, Aud manages to stay happy even when only getting 2-3 hours of sleep at one time. Often times she can be found singing to little Eli and exclaiming how "stinking cute" he is.
