Bills, ick

Another stopping point. It's just as well that I don't have the time to sit down and finish up the bills-process in one sitting. I can't do it without some mental health breaks in between.

Yesterday, I got the checkbook balance updated. Today, I opened all the bills-mail, trashing the inserts and envelopes, and putting aside the privacy statements and changes in terms to file. In the process, I sorted the bills into auto-pay and not. Tomorrow morning, while laundry is running in the background, I'll finished the process of updating the balance, by verifying the amounts of all the autopays. Next in the process is entering all the other bills.

Now I can turn to nice homey stuff like grocery shopping and other housewife errands.

I enjoyed work last night. There are only a few of us that work at night, all women until the guy they hired to be a supervisor starts on second shift. We listened to music on the boombox. I had gotten the CD player working, but it got turned on, and ran its batteries down before I got to work. Sigh. I think I've established my weirdness by supplying the Anna Russell Album to start the evening. After that, Bare Naked Ladies. I'll be listening on earbuds tonight, and I suspect the other women won't mind my keeping my music to myself. ;)

Indexing is easy. The night flew by, and I only ended up taking one food break. So the danger to my waistline from increased food consumption has dropped. I need to stay active during the day however, since the evening is all sitting. I'm definitely more awake during second shift hours -- I had no problems with sleepiness, even after my food break to eat yummy leftover mu shu pork.

Reading afterschool seems to be a successful plot. And I have enough time in the morning before I start working, to catch up on live journal and email. So, life is good.

Mind you, bills are scary. But hey, that's why I'm working, right?

Today's errands: dry cleaner, Wal-Mart, Sam's, Kroger, allergist. I had planned to leave at 10, but I was close enough to finishing the stage I was doing with the bills that I let it slip a litte. I should still have time to catch lunch and shower for work when I get home.
