I've talked about my woodworking being really good therapy for me, but I've also come to think of my garage as a haven. When I walk out the front door and into the garage I don't think about the dust on my furniture, the floors that need to be cleaned, the laundry waiting to be folded and put away or the dirty dishes. And, yesterday I was reminded that I haven't been thinking much about my bills either! I came home to a notice that my water had been turned off!!
I was dumbfounded - sure that I'd paid that bill. But, nope, I checked my on-line banking records and sure enough the last time I paid my water bill was in October. Strangely enough, I received my most recent bill yesterday, too. It did show that I had an outstanding balance. But, between Oct 14th and yesterday I didn't receive a reminder - and the rep assured me that they always send out a reminder. I suppose it got lost with the original bill.
Well, darn. I haven't been late on a payment like that in a long, long time. I guess I need to spend more time in the house - and I will, just as soon as the Doc's wall unit is done, and my Christmas gifts are finished. It looks like I'll have to start the New Year off with a resolution to take care of the business of living before I can escape to my hideaway!
