I work with computers and the `net enough, that I just dont trust "online bill payment" and "auto withdrawal". I've seen enough companies screw up their billing enough times, that I prefer to write out physical checks, and drop them in the postal mail. If someone screws up and takes out too much money, they have no motivation to fix it. But, if I can withhold payment, then they are motivated to make it right.
All the laundry got processed today. Including the rugs. Carpets vacuumed, and floors scrubbed. (Simple Green in the kitchen, bleach in the bathroom, and Natures Miracle in the closet where the litter boxes go.)
