Finances on the Internet and Movie!

Finances: This evening I received the first bill for my new credit card, and I paid it online for the first time.

Wow! Paying online is so easy! Much less cumbersome than having to write out a check and mail it. Cheaper, too, because you don't have to use stamps.

This morning I set up deferred compensation (457) with my employer, and I can now handle a lot of the employee choice things--such as how much I want deducted from my salary each month--myself online, instead of having to ask Personnel to handle it. Lovely!

God, I love the Internet.

Movie: Thanks to octoberdreaming, Mark and I were able to nab tickets to a preview showing of Serenity, which shows tonight in Houston at 10pm. Horrible time to show the thing, but it will be worth it. :D

octoberdreaming--If you're there, I'll be the short, dark-haired woman wearing a t-shirt that says, in white letters, "Dance as if no one were watching." I hope we can see each other there!

I'm hitting the sack now, in hopes that I won't be a complete zombie at work tomorrow, for staying up so late tonight.

Current Mood: happyhappy

I hope you enjoy the movie, Chantal!

I looove paying bills online, especially being able to schedule them all at once, even if they don't get 'sent' until later in the month. When I went to England, I paid all the bills before I left, but they didn't come out of the account until they were supposed to. (WIth weekly paychecks, timing is everything. *g*)

Rosemary--Weekly paychecks? Nice! What sort of work are you doing now?

Chantal

Paycheck. Heh. Tim gets paid. I'm the family go to girl for: housekeeping, cooking, babysiting, general chief bottle washer. I never looked for work after we moved to Arlington. I *could* now that Mom is mobile again and I don't have to look after Dad, but somehow there's always plenty for me to do--those things we'd have to pay someone to do if I weren't doing them. So it's a trade off.

And it's cool for ME, because I'm writing again. I no longer have my own income, but I have a ton of freedom. And I do PLAN to finish at least ONE of these many novels, sell it, and... well, probably not make a lot of money, but continue to do what I love.
