Questions updated over at Formspring -- feel free to ask me anonymous questions there!

I've taken something of a digital sabbatical -- I've been on the computer a lot, playing video games and sorting wedding photos, but spent less time reading blogs and (obviously) posting on my own. It's been nice and now I feel like I have more to say.

Financial items of note:
* I was dumb and didn't update my bank info with my credit card last time I paid it, so the payment was supposed to come from my old checking account which is closed. I got charged a $25 fee. Oops.

* ING has confirmed my new bank account, so I can transfer all my money on Monday and close it out (yay for higher interest rates!). When that's done, all of my accounts will be streamlined and consolidated.

* I've been calling American Express (which issues my corporate card) for two months trying to get my name changed. Every two weeks I've asked for the name change form, which I'm told will arrive in three to five days. Yesterday I got two forms on the same day. *sigh* If these are the first I've requested, they took six to eight weeks to arrive, not three to five days -- and I've got at least two more showing up eventually.

* My Discover card increased my credit limit - probably from all the wedding expenses I put on it. That's nice. I doubt I'll ever need to put anything so expensive on there again, but it's nice to know that I could. I'm pretty sure they offered that extension before I paid with outdated bank information.

* Peanut and I have been spending quite a bit eating out this month. Oy vey. Our wrap up is not going to be pretty.

More soon!

  1. Eating out in November has been my downfall too. I rarely eat out but lately I've been craving all of this junk...
