I got my cashier's check and then had to make a detour to the post office before heading back to work. I estimate that my check won't reach a human until Monday at the best. Perhaps by next Friday I will see my account updated or maybe that is being too optimistic. Anyway, my checking account is a lot lower but my mortgage is still showing so I am not going to say it is paid off until the loan is officially closed. This is taking a lot longer than I expected. I would think with all the technology that they have now, that I could pay off my Chase mortgage with my Chase checking account a little easier, faster and cheaper than having to use the postal system.
Well, in a week or so it won't matter and I won't have to think about that mortgage any more. Next step...pay my surprise property tax bill, pay my 6 month car insurance, pay my HOA 6 month dues, and put $500 towards the Home depot card. One of these days I am actually going to get to do something fun with my money...I hope.
