Oh, woe is me.
I have two checking accounts in my name and one that I share with mr. kenju, but I don't use that one often. Sometimes I pull the wrong checkbook out of my purse, but I usually catch that mistake by looking at my balance.
Apparently, sometime in the last 9-10 days, I switched the check registers, and I've been writing checks and making debits in an account that can't support that activity - meaning there may not be enough moolah in it. I even recorded my latest social security deposit in the wrong account. Do you know how that makes me feel? I can assure you, it feels crappy. I am in the process of printing the last 2 months worth of statements for each account and I hope I will be able to figure out the balance in each without too much trouble (or higher math - which is by far not my best talent!)
My daughters have both told me that I need to close one of those accounts, and I ought to have listened. Trouble is, one of those banks is very convenient to me and has branches all over quite a few states, and the other one is limited to the state of North Carolina, so it does me no good when I travel, but I derive benefits from it that are hard to give up. So, it's a quandary I'm in. How to solve the problem???
