Nothing exciting happening here. DD went back to school today but has tomorrow off for veteran's Day. I spent the morning paying bills and organizing Girl Scout paperwork. I also had to track down two addresses to mail out checks to people who insisted on holding my check until after I closed the account. One person held my check for two months. The account was such a mess we decided to start over! I let it sit for over two weeks and then called it quits. Since closing it, two more checks have tried to clear. UGH!! Just cash my check in a timely manner, please! When I called the bank to get the actual closing date (so I could right a mean little note to one of the check holders) the lady at the bank tells me that the account has been reopened because a automatic deposit has come through from Half.com. This is another thing I tried to stop before it happened but it obviously didn't work. So now I get to go back to the bank and close the account AGAIN!
I am hoping to get the backing pinned onto the quilting machine this afternoon so I can get my mom's quilt done this weekend. Then it will be time for my FIL's coffee quilt. Less than two weeks until we head for Arkansas - so I'd better get cracking!
