Unforgetful You - Jars of Clay

5 GRATITUDES (Thank you, Heavenly Papa!):
  • Thank you God for being able to help my dad open his accounts where I bank with no fees like Chase charges.  
  • Thank you God I got my stuff resolved with the ZGym and for Zuzka's help.
  • Thank you God for the calls & emails for job stuff for my husband.
  • Thank you God for the public library systems.
  • Thank you God for A/C.
  • We were at a long time at the bank to get my dad situated at a new bank that doesn't have all the fees that Chase charges.  They didn't appreciate my dad so my dad went to a smaller bank that will give him good service and lots of free stuff - no fee checking, no minimum balance, free checks, money back on stuff, free insurance, and a bunch of other stuff.  They also helped my dad change some of his auto pays and this was the longest part of the process, on hold with the federal government for over an hour, but this got done so my dad doesn't have to do it.
  • Started my subcon work WAY late today and will not be able to finish today.
  • My son is now doing better with warming up as I show him how to do the exercises in the Fitness Blender stuff I do.
  • Zuzka Light Customer Service messed up my account and sent me emails stating the wrong thing, which had me in a cow.  I posted on her FB page and she had customer service give me a call, but I also found a number for her on an email receipt, so that helped, too.  Learned that if you update your payment, which I should not have had to do, but it had me do, then it didn't take.  Then, I redid a few times and essentially, it was going to charge me each time.  However, I have a special account where I only keep enough money to pay only subscriptions right before they are due.  Once some places take your money, they will not refund or it's a bear to refund.  This way, this account has no overdraft and if the money's not there, the transaction will fail.  Has been working well for us, and never over charged.

    Anyway, after a half an hour with customer service, Ashley, it's all resolved and I know what to do the next time, but hopefully this doesn't happen again.
  • Crazy drivers.  My husband and son were, well, let's just say God protected them.
  • Normally I have the whole next week's worth of workouts already in my blog ready to be done, but not this week because my weekend was just way too busy and I didn't have the videos to edit from ZGym.  So, I am behind on posting.
