I got paid on Monday. My plan was that this paycheck would go pretty straight to paying off the credit card that paid for most of our fun on the honeymoon.

When I did so, I noticed some discrepancies between the bank's estimate of my funds and Quicken's, and I decided to track that down.

I'm glad I did. I discovered that for some reason, I had paid August's house payment twice. Oooops.

I'd love it if I could just consider that an extra payment; it's more than all the principal we pay in a year. But I rather need that money. At this moment, that house payment would represent about a quarter of our liquid funds. So instead, it will just have to mean that I was extremely prompt with the September payment.

On the plus side, though, I can work this out. I can move a little money around, and mid-month expenses shouldn't be too bad, and the August 22 paycheck should reconcile everything.

In the meantime, I'm delaying paying some bills until the next paycheck, the way I was delaying the credit card bill until this paycheck. Feh. I hate juggling bills like that. Oh well.
