I should have known that the United States Postal Service would not be the most efficient company in the world. My instructions to them was to deliver all accumulated mail at the end of the hold period; this should have occurred on Tuesday. When I returned home yesterday my mailbox contained a second bundle of held mail, and of course this bundle had the now-cancelled credit card within it. Ugh.
Because I am not yet in possession of a valid Visa card last night I spent a good hour logging onto to accounts and converting all of my auto-pay settings to American Express. Well, almost all, because the City of Atlanta doesn’t take AmEx for water payments. Ugh. In theory I should be in possession of a new Visa today, which will allow me to update my water bill auto-pay, and even go up to Costco, who also no longer accepts AmEx, to renew my membership.
Mow, Mow, Mow Your Lawn
Against all advice I have kept the push lawnmower. I have used it once, and will be taking it out for another spin this morning. Yes, it is more work pushing the engine-less mower around the yard, but I need the exercise. And, because it’s a quiet way of mowing the lawn I will be doing so this morning before going to work, something that I was never able to do with the gas mower.
Perhaps in September I will make the time to attempt to overhaul the gas mower so that I have options next year, assuming that I am still in the ITP Estate come lawn-mowing season.
A New “XYZ Corp” Order
Today marks my first day at “XYZ Corp” without having a direct boss. Of course this will change soon as there is a Engineering Team meeting this afternoon to discuss a reorganization. Stay tuned…
Make it a great Thursday.
