Another Installment of Sara’s Adventures of Dumb

I accidentally paid our home mortgage twice this month. One check went out via automatic bill pay on 12/31. Another mortgage check went out via automatic bill pay today, 1/2.  Maybe I got dyslexic and thought I was scheduling the 2/1 payment? I discovered the error on New Year’s Day, when the bank’s website wouldn’t let me cancel the payment and there was no one working the phones at the bank. Today, I called, faxed a letter, and visited my branch all in the hopes that I can stop the second payment. They tell me it will work. We’ll see …

If we get ahead on our mortgage by a month, it won’t be the end of the world, but I don’t like the idea of not having that dough in hand.
