So...not only do Hank and I write checks (or make an online payment) for our own bills each month, but we also are responsible for making sure that the bills of the following people get paid each month...
1. My mother 2. Ned 3. Hank's mother.
Now before you go thinking that we're these wonderful generous people, we aren't paying their bills with our money...they have their own money. We just receive the bills and write the checks from their accounts. I deal with Mother and Ned, and Hank deals with his mother.
It can be time consuming, but I wouldn't go so far as to say that it's a burden. I'm thankful that they're all blessed with enough income to cover the bills...so many people struggle to get things taken care of for elderly or disabled relatives.
Here's the thing. I'm organized...I have everything in Quicken and payments go in the mail around the first of the month...everything except the Green Grove check and the pharmacy bill because I don't receive those until around the 10th. Easy peasy...right?
This is where you analyze...I get really ticked off when I go to address envelopes. No problem when an envelope is included or pre-addressed. Just the ones for Ned's house mostly... Isn't that odd? As a matter of fact, I'm feeling my blood pressure go up just typing this post about addressing the envelopes, which I did about 15 minutes ago. That's two blood pressure spikes within half an hour, which can't be good.
Lord have mercy...I'm TOUCHED in the head.
