Paying the Bills

I loathe sitting down to pay the bills. And I have been so scattered and forgetful lately, I missed some of the due dates, AGAIN. I think Depression should beĀ an excellent excuse for being late with payments. Sometimes I just can’t get it together. It’s not that I don’t have the money, or that I don’t care, I just can’t get organized and motivated both at the same time and at the right time to accomplish the task. So I get dinged with late fees. I hate that. I really hate that.

Then I signed up for this online budgeting program called Mint.com. It kindly reminds me when I overspend on my budget, or when I am chargedĀ interest or LATE FEES. That is just not helpful. I need reminding ahead of time to pay the damn bill. I guess there are programs for that too. I just have to be organized and motivated to set that up. Sometime. Soon. Right after I pay the late fee.

Pray for peace and understanding.
