Back to the grind...

So Nora didn't call or stop by, but Blayne did catch me on IM. Between him chatting with me and him chatting with Dad we "talked" for about 2 hrs. Jaylin is getting SOOOOO big! Glad we have webcams. :D

I did finish most of my list - all except for packaging anything for either store, my P365 - week6 LO, or the 25 things about me list.

But, on top of my original list I also had to call my fuel oil company to straighten out the mess they'd made of my account. Back at the beginning of Dec they double-charged my credit card for a delivery. They "fixed" it by refunding the full amount and then charging the half amount a 3rd time... Then proceeded to leave the "credit" on my account so that they didn't charge my cc for the delivery on xmas eve. When I called to arrange for a delivery on my birthday they caught on to the fact that they hadn't charged the previous delivery... and STILL hadn't gotten it straightened out. I need a delivery this week so I had to make them fix it so I could put Mike's card onto the account for the new delivery because I'm too close to my limit for another delivery to go on my card... It's fixed now, but jeez...

Then I had to call the cable company because I noticed a $13.99 charge for "Howard TV on Demand" on our bill and we don't use ANY on Demand options... When I get the rep she states this has been on our bill since NOV 23rd!!! It was automatically re-occuring every month, and I hadn't noticed it!!! Apparently Brenden must have hit buttons on the remote at some point to "order" the service, and despite the fact that we've been with them for ohhhh - 6 yrs - with no on Demand charges no one thought that was odd??? The rep did manage to remove the charges for this bill and the last one so that's $30 I don't have to pay, but the original one couldn't be removed. Now to take the time to figure out how to set parental controls on that stupid remote which doesn't work well to begin with so he can't do it again.

I also got the taxes done so that money should be in our account within the next 14 days. At which point I can pay off both cc accounts, and MAYBE get the laptop I've been hoping for...

The LOs I finished since Sunday morning's post...

Wow, lots of stuff to get straightened out. I only pay attention to my electric bill, which they screw up about every 3 months. Stupid meter reader.

Awesome pages! You should go back through your gallery and look at some of your older pages sometime. You'll see how much you're style has grown and changed. (not that the earlier ones were bad at all) But I see so much in your pages now. And I'm still in awe.

Hope you have a great day hon!
