Boy Did They Throw A Wet Blanket On My Excitement!

I was going to pay off my car today.
.
I looked at the budget and it was scheduled to pay off on November 10 but the money scheduled to pay it with is currently sitting in my account and well...
.
Kind of a neat birthday present to myself.
.
But you see. The bank always has a way of ruining the fun.
.
My car payments are on automatic withdrawal. They are paid on the 10th of the month. Today is the 8th.
.
They need 15 days to stop an automatic draft. So if I paid it today I'd still get hit for the payment. Now since the 10th is a Saturday and Monday is some random holiday the payment won't actually post until Tuesday.
.
So.
.
On Tuesday I will pay off my car.
.
And on Tuesday I will be excited.
.
Today I am not.

Wait until you pay off the house. It feels great.

Yeah! It is such a good feeling to see a balance of zero. Do a happy dance Tuesday. :)

I am not a fan of automatic payments. The only one I have set up that way is the house. John had quite a bit of trouble with those when handling June's affairs.
