In all of my pre-trip checks (only 5 hrs before we leave!), of course I checked our checking account. I had a few transfers going through today, so I like to make sure they actually were processed.
Plus...we are waiting for the funding for loan. The system just says "received 4/18/12." Well that is a big help. One day I am going to wake up, and there will be 38k in my checkbook. And granted, it is already spoken for....but how nice for those 90 seconds to see that much money in our account! Today is not that day.
Anyway, there is a round number in our checking account. Naturally. It is odd.
I had to run to Walgreens last night, and it came to $16.17. That transaction set it all in motion. Since there was $XXX.17 in the account, the debit now made it go to $XXX.00. Additionally, the transfers worked it out (and mind you....these transfers have nothing to do with each other...they were made in an odd increment because that was what was appropriate) that now the balance is:
It is very weird. It is one thing if I had to transfer some contrived number to make that happen. I also pay my bills in round numbers (for easier math when balancing the checkbook). But one transaction messes all of that up.
But naturally.....just by the normal things that needed to be done.....our account is in a round state of Zen.
