I can't believe it. With all of the craziness of traveling for the holidays, taking care of dogs and working on my mobile home, I forgot to pay my car insurance. I was driving to meet my carpool this morning and for some reason I started thinking about it. I couldn't remember putting the new insurance cards in my wallet and truck. And then I thought a little more and couldn't even remember paying the bill. I usually don't forget things like that so I checked my bank account online. Nope, no cashed check. This is one of the few bills that I still pay by check. I wish they did automatic payments like most people do.
So, I got home tonight and shuffled through my old mail. I have a pile of it that I haven't sorted. I mean, I do one initial sort when I get it and take out anything important and then I leave the rest for later. I did remember seeing something from the insurance company but I thought it was for my homeowner's insurance which is paid automatically with my mortgage. I found the letter and it was indeed my car insurance bill and new cards. It was due on the 12th. I hope there is some sort of grace period. I'll have to call my insurance agent and find out. Maybe if I plead temporary dog-induced insanity?
***Update: I checked their website and they do have an online payment option now. I registered and paid by credit card (more cachback points!) and signed up for email bill notification so that my next bill will not get buried in junk mail!
