I've not been a very good blogger lately but as I haven't been doing anything quilty it would be rather boring to post each day saying, "Well I went to work. Then back home. then I fixed supper. Then I sat in my recliner and promptly went to sleep. Add in a few loads of laundry done and that was my week. This weekend I'm making candy/cookies for co-worker gifts and hoping to get the house cleaned a bit. I'm not looking for spotless. Just not quite so nasty will suit me fine. LOL!

I'm so ticked at myself! David got a call from our Mortgage company Thursday saying they hadn't received a payment since October 4th! That's odd since I not only pay my payment each month I also send almost double so it will be paid off much quicker. So I called the bank. Yep all checks had cleared the bank. So I get copies to fax. Turns out when I typed up the vouchers I entered the account number wrong on the first month. And since at the same time I copied and pasted and printed a bunch of them out I also had the wrong account number the 2nd month. And would have a 3rd month too as I was getting ready to mail the January payment that day! So now we have the hassle of getting our money moved from someone else's account to ours! Up until then our payment was automatically sent out from our bank. But we changed banks and haven't got the online banking set up with the new account. Oh well, it will get worked out and at least they have been sent proof that I really did pay those payments. And I dug around till I found the real printed vouchers from the Mortgage co. (instead of the PDF ones they have on their website that you have to fill in) and got my January payment sent. Plus filled out the voucher to have the payment automatically drafted. That should ensure this mixup never occurs again.

Hopefully I'll have quilty content for you to read next week but I wouldn't count on it if I was you!

Nancy, you are a woman after my own heart. I haven't blogged much lately for exactly the same reason - just how interesting is my working day and non-eventful evening? Got to say that your post has made me feel oodles better about it.

You wanna pay some on my mortgage while you are at it? I wish that we made enough to pay double our payment each month. We have been here almost a year and I am seeing it go down so little.

I can't believe your mortgage co. didn't notice the number on the check was not the same as the payment coupon. Naturally they cashed it.
I bet you about went nuts! Glad you are getting it workied out. Merry Christmas!

Gosh, I wish it had been MY acct number on those pymnts...that would have been very nice of you to be making double pymnts on my house!!!

Things can only get better.

Cher said...

we seem to all be dealing with non quilty life stuff! I agree, too boring when all you have done is work, eat, sleep...more or less-good thing you cleared up that wrong account problem!

Libby said...

It's just a busy time of year. Glad you figured out the mortgage -- that would have made me crazy.

Sweet P said...

I've been busy too and not blogging much. My life sounds a lot like yours right now. Work, sleep, eat, repeat.

That is such a pain to get money switched. I just paid my cell phone bill into Keith's old account. After getting notices of the bill being overdue I finally figured out what the problem was and called them. They weren't happy and it took a couple weeks for them to credit my account.

Of course, they didn't bother to notify us that they got a payment in an account that was closed. You think they would have just kept the money if I hadn't figured it out?? I do.

I once wrote a check to my MOM and mistakenly sent it to the bank for along with my house payment....Yup, they cashed it!

Suze said...

I get so annoyed when I do things like that. And I seem to be prone to that type of error.

Glad you are getting it all cleared up with no problems.

Quilty or not, its god to know what you are doing! And....didn't you know that UFO's reproduce in the closet when you aren't looking??? =) =) =)

Ugh the opposite happened to me... I had a check drafted from my account (by the bank not by me) for our home owners fee, meanwhile, I set up the direct debit - that was nto supposed to kick in so quickly - they got 2 payments in December... UGH - at least they will only get a tiny bit in January - which will in turn make February - truely YUCKY.... & so it goes.

I had that problem with my newspaper bill - I paid the wrong account. Sometimes I think that the easier I try to make things for myself (paying online), the harder the ending result turns out to be. Hopefully the bank was able to correct the error smoother than the newspaper company can.
