playing hostess

i’m hosting our family’s sabbath lunch at our house tomorrow. i’m really excited because i love hosting and cooking for people. i’m also very overwhelmed because we just finished clearing out the apartment and now have a lot of things in the house. i have a pile of clothes on the guest bed that need to be hung in that room’s closet, but we have to fix the shelf first because it was placed right on top of the bar. sigh. i also have several boxes still to unpack, which probably will be put out in the carport for now. they won’t even be noticed amongst the other boxes still waiting for us to go through. it still bothers me, though, because i wanted my house to be perfect when my grandparents saw it. oh well. i’ll just have to learn to deal.

i hate, hate, *hate* clutter. and i hate having boxes in the carport. it makes me feel very redneck. at least i know it won’t be for long (unlike a house across the street from our old apartment complex that has a chockfull carport and items spilling out into the driveway). i’m just waiting for a weekend when we can dedicate time to go through them. we always seem to have something going on. hopefully next weekend we can really tackle it.

bill paying

i hate sending in bill payments. i hate writing checks. now that we’ve combined accounts, i’ve set everything up to be paid electronically every month. it’s just easier for me to remember that way, and it’s much less hassle.

today, when i was looking up the phone number for our car insurance agent, i noticed the option to pay online. yay! paying our car insurance is the bain of my existence. whenever i go by, the office is closed. it’s so frustrating. and it takes time out of my day to drive over there several times. i thought this would be a quick solution to that problem. however, i couldn’t seem to find an account number on our statement. there were a couple of unlabeled numbers, but they didn’t work. so, i called the company.

online bill pay isn’t available for georgia customers. well isn’t that just fantastic. that bummed me out. but at least i only have two checks to write each month.
