Time to Pay Up…Posted: January 14, 2011
As counterintuitive as it may seem, the first and the fifteenth are my favorite days of the month because I finally get to sit down and pay the bills. Although today is not the fifteenth, it’s close enough, and I am able to complete the chore that most people find daunting and depressing.
I’m uncertain as to why people feel this way about paying the bills. These are the days of the month when I can finally make sure that everyone who wants money from us has what they require. Everything that comes after today is gravy. At least until we get to the thirtieth. Then I start fretting again, wondering if there is someone I have forgotten.
For today, though, I feel like I know exactly what money is mine and what belongs to someone else. The fun can finally begin!
