I have had the most horrible day. I spent many hours today trying to sort through receipts and other papers in order to make sense of our finances. Life has been quite busy lately, and we have neglected our normal upkeep. This is NOT a good thing to do! I have always been taught that Yahweh is a God of ORDER, and that makes me think that He is not happy with my desk.
And to top off the whole irritating mess, our credit card, which I always pay online, has changed their website, and I couldn’t get it to work for me. After waiting several minutes for each page to load (and we have DSL, frcryinoutloud! I’m not used to this!!! —okay, call me spoiled–I know it’s true) and then getting a “page not found” error about half the time, I was VERY crabby. After a few phone calls which produced nothing but polite recorded voices, I finally was able to make it to the right page. By what must have been divine intervention, I actually got the bill paid, which put our checking account in the red, so I had to transfer money….ohhhh, it went on and on!
Unfortunately, the job still isn’t done. Sigh. I did manage to reconcile our checking account to the last two bank statements and pay the bills, one of which was overdue, but I still have a huge stack of credit card receipts to enter. Sigh again. Anyone else ever let things get into a huge jumble like this?
Lord, help me to be a nicer person tomorrow!
