A quite day here at the ranch as everyone observes Easter eve in their own way. Pretty quite around here with the few bodies still in residence.
Cardinals win 4-3.
Even quieter around here today than it was yesterday. A nice day with time to reflect on its meaning.
Today was scramble on the phone day. First a call to the broker to see where the money was. It was not going to my account until tonight. Setback #1.
Setback #2 occurred when the bank called to let me know that the debit card limit could not be raised until there were corresponding funds to match the limit increase. They were not able to hold the request until Tuesday and they would cancel it and I could start over on Tuesday.
The funds were deposited overnight in the checking account and a new request for a debit card increase was submitted. I was told it would be one to two days to process this. This is beginning to wear thin. I need their permission to access my money on my debit card.
Today was spent at the ready, waiting to hear from the bank to see if I could spend my money. When nothing was heard all day, I finally went on line about 6 pm and got on the banks chat line to see if anything had been approved. After a couple of minutes of checking they came back to me to let me know I could, in fact, spend my own money.
This morning it was off to the Ford dealer to pick up my new, to me, Fiesta. I wish I had thought to take my camera along to get a picture of the cashier as she was handed my debit card and told to ring up a five digit transaction, apparently it's not a daily occurrence in her life. The card went right through and the keys to PaT were turned over and I got the keys to the Fiesta. I now have to use some restraint as I get familiar with the new wheels because they are quite a bit peppier than the Cruiser.
Cardinal's are on the tube this afternoon so my day is booked.
