I just got a notification in the mail from my homeowners insurance that, effective 2/1, they updated my mortgage servicing company from the lender I currently have to the one I am in the process of doing the refinance with. How can they do that when I haven't even finalized/closed the loan yet? From the latest info I have I am still a good couple of weeks away, minimum, from closing. Weird.
My mom finally called me back around lunchtime yesterday and as I figured, she either accidentally turned her phone off or had not charged it. I was glad to hear from her and not worry about her.
DD had 2 of her hall trees picked up in the last couple of days, so she's on a break for now in making them as she only has one order to fill, but the lady doesn't want it until March, so dd doesn't want to make it yet and take up her garage space storing it, in case new orders come in. I think she's sold like 7 so far. Nice little extra money and she sent me a screen shot of her Discover card balance at zero, so she was really happy about that.
I just gave our flat coat retriever a "feet trim". His feets's start looking really shaggy, with his long fur, LOL. He looks much more dignified now :)
It's 17 degrees out this morning. I'm glad I don't have to take anything to the mailbox. Though I am heading out soon to do my morning "chore" of giving the chickens their bread treat.
I think I will make hamburgers and fries for dinner, so when I go downstairs to do that I need to get some hamburger out of the freezer, and get out a couple buns, too.
Dh and I have had this "system" of whenever he needs me to order something, he sends me the link. I order it from my computer, my credit card is here at my desk, I use my email, so I have the order confirmation and any updates, etc. Also, when he sends me the link (via messenger) I don't delete this long continuing message, that way I can go back and know what he sent me to order and sometimes he sends me something and 5 seconds later says "no, wait, never mind" and I have that in writing, LOL. I have had to use that before when he says a week later, did you order such and such? and I go back and show him, no....you changed your mind.... "oh ya, I forgot".
Well, he's been ordering a bunch of various stuff the past couple of weeks and now half of it he wants to order from his computer because he'd rather just put them in the cart and order, instead of sending me links. Ok....fine.....but he doesn't keep track of what he's ordered! He can't remember if he did end up ordering something or not, he doesn't keep or organize the emails about his orders, etc. So, he's constantly asking me and it's getting super annoying. Or he's doing half sending me links and half him ordering and can't keep track of which got ordered which way, so I have to look through what I ordered to see if I ordered it or he did. Not to mention half the stuff he is ordering is either taking awhile to get shipped or on backorder, so they really need to be kept track of, to make sure he gets the items. Take your dang order emails and save them in a folder for orders! how hard is that? So, obviously I'll need to start tracking all those he orders, myself, to save me the headache a week or two later.
Oh good grief - here's a great example. I also always tell him if a package is supposed to be delivered today and via what method. So, USPS shows an amazon order coming today. Some kind of couplers and clamps he ordered. So, I just told him and he's got this blank stare. What is it? I said I don't know, some kind of rubber couplers with metal clamps you wanted ordered (only like 4 days ago!). He still has no idea/memory of it. Then he wanted to know what it's for....how would I know, if he doesn't even remember needing/ordering them? I just said, as I walked away, I don't know, whatever it is and what it's for, it's supposed to be in today's mail........
and I just realized when I was downstairs I didn't get the hamburger and buns out of the freezer. LOL
