I had to mail that escrow refund check I received, into my bank, since it was over my $2000 mobile deposit limit. I mailed it Tuesday and around here it usually takes 1 day to get to the city and shows up in my account later that next afternoon. I have mailed a few deposits before and usually by the end of the next day, it gets recorded to my account, after they get their mail. As of this morning, it's still not showing. Of course, now I am a bit worried it's gotten lost. Hopefully, it's just a mail delay or a delay in them getting mail deposits posted yesterday and not lost.
Yesterday my boss had emailed me to ask when I am processing the 1/15 payroll/deadline to get it in. I told her it's Friday. I'm assuming because she needed to get some salary changes input for the first payroll of this year. I see that the owners and the upper management all got their nice increases for the first payroll of this year - as usual! LOL. It will be interesting to see if and when the rest get done.
She discovered the other day an error made by our previous payroll company (another reason we needed to leave them). She had put in a raise of $5k a year for an employee last April. It went through that next payroll, but that is the only payroll it got added to, the rest of his paychecks all were back at the old pay rate. He makes good money, but how in the world do you not realize you didn't get paid what you should be? I would assume he was told he was getting a raise. I don't get how people just do not pay attention to their money.
Now that my mom was looking at her emails again, she calls me up late yesterday afternoon. Some email about her Paypal account being charged and she didn't buy or order anything. I got into her email and see it's an email IN her SPAM folder. I told her it's just spam. I told her she doesn't have a paypal account and it's just spam, that's why AOL automatically put in directly to her spam folder. I keep telling her to just ignore the spam folder, don't even open it. Can't convince her. I've only been daily clearing out spam that makes it through to her inbox, not deleting her spam folder, but I see I'll have to start doing that too, since she can't understand how it all works and wants to keep looking at the emails in her spam folder. Wish there was a way to have the spam folder hidden from her view, but still working in the background, LOL. At least it is catching most of it.
She has been starting to look at the links I sent her for the 4 senior living places near me. One of them is independent living only, so any assistance would need to be brought in by a 3rd party. Of course she is liking that place because of the price, but she seemed to have a hard time understanding that's because there is no assistance included and that when the time came for assistance she'll either need to hire it to come in and help or move to a place that offers it. She said, well, thankfully right now I don't need any assistance, so I don't see the point of paying all that extra for it. She has a very good point (as the other places are $1200-$2000 MORE a month, for basic level one assistance). I said well, I agree that she doesn't need any major assistance, BUT I do feel she needs assistance making sure she's taking her medications every day and getting them in her pill box weekly. She kind of says "hmm...well, I think we could figure something out for that....YOU could call me every day. I'd rather pay you to help me than pay that much". HAHA! that's what I've been trying to do! Oh boy. I said yes, that's what I've been trying to do with my calls to her but sometimes I still worry she's not for sure getting her meds taken. Plus, if she was close to me I would be in to see her probably weekly, so I could make sure her pill box is filled, rather than paying someone. We'll see after we look at all the options down the road. I just thought it was cute that she thought the solution was me calling to remind her every day, when that's what I have been doing for 2 months, LOL.
I'm taking a longer lunch break today, by probably an extra half hour, today so we can run into the city and pick up my Christmas tree at Home Depot and also pick up a grocery order at Walmart. We shouldn't be there for more than about 30 minutes. Home Depot and Walmart are only about a half mile apart. Hopefully we can fit however big the Christmas tree box is and our groceries! We are supposed to be getting a bunch of snow starting tomorrow, so that is why we are going in today. But, so far all the snow predictions have been pretty much totally wrong, but at least we'll be prepared and have a full pantry and refrigerator again. My fridge freezer is almost empty as it's been like 3 weeks since we did full grocery shopping.
Update just before I post this: I just checked online again with my bank and the deposit is now posted. Whew. I feel better :)
