In My Favor....But Still
This past statement had me again spending hours, not because I was short, but because I was off by over 600 bucks in my favor. How can someone add/subtract that badly? I found a few small mistakes my husband and I had made but still far from where I should be. I had been juggling money around from our daughter's savings account to get her car, then put back what we didn't need. I wrote a couple of large checks but those are the easy ones to track so what's the deal? I've been off for months but not to that degree. I even took everything to my mom's so I could use her big-ass calculator; no luck. I went online to my credit union and looked at the real time figures, still didn't help. Everything has been checked off twice and re-checked way back to June. If I ever do find my mistake I know I'm going to feel stupid at why I should have caught the mistake earlier--because it shouldn't be this hard.
I always figure things will 'adjust next month' but it doesn't. Next month I'm just going to add my windfall, go out to dinner, and call it balanced.
