Real Life Spew
Geez, it can't be just me, right? Am I singlehandedly supporting the American economy?

This is my list of bills that either just got paid or are awaiting payment:

Credit card A
Credit card B
Credit card C
Land line phone
Cell phone
Sewer bill
Auto insurance car A
Auto license renewal car A
Credit card D
Real estate tax
Auto insurance car B
Home owners insurance
Medical clinic

Count 'em up -- 16 bills to pay.

I started charging a lot on credit cards years ago since most of my professional life I have been paid once a month. Some cards change somewhat frequently since I chase after free flight bonuses.

I don't include my real estate taxes or home owners insurance with my monthly mortgage payment, so it is always nasty when the yearly bills come around.

Credit cards? Having three teenagers means I spend a heck of a lot of money on food. My son alone eats ten times a day. The greatest number of charges on the credit card seem to be food and gasoline.

And how is your day going?

I feel your property tax and home insurance bill pain. We don't escrow those either. Just got those bills in the mail recently, too. Always a surprise and always painful.

Geez I got depressed reading that list. It does get better when the kids are grown up though. There's the carrot.

My kids are getting older and eating a lot more. I can't belive how fast we go through bread and milk. When we eat out I still try to get them to order from the kids menu.

Schaubs nailed it.

2. Catch cards
3. ???????
4. Profit!

Not having had kids, and their attendant costs, I feel for you.
