I can’t seem to get out of the house in time to be able to go to Bank of America. The problem is that it closes at 4:00 Monday through Thursday. If I go to the casino, I’d have to leave around noon or 1:00 to be able to enter any hundreds I have before taking them to the bank. I actually got out pretty early Thursday. I went to the bank before going up to the casino to get some $2 bills, which they had plenty of.

After going to the casino, I went to the Bank of America across the street. I had $50 that I didn’t use at the casino so that I might break it at the bank. It turns out that there was some unusual activity on my card causing it to be declined. I guess using the card at two different banks on the same day raised a red flag. It took so long to get it straightened out that the tellers had already closed out their windows. I ended up breaking the $50 at a nearby Publix.

Yesterday, I had to wait for someone to fix our phones. He was scheduled to be here between 11:00 and 2:00. He didn’t show up until 3:00. The problem with later appointments is that it’s impossible to tell when they’ll be there. I don’t fault the guy for showing up so late, as he can’t really tell how long each job will take. It just sucks that I had to wait around so long. I couldn’t really do much at that point.

It looks like I finished July having entered 7,244 bills worth $17,392. I’m not really sure how I ended up entering that many bills in one month. I was actually trying to slow down. (I entered 6,676 bills worth $14,903 in June, which was a record until now.) I’ve been trying to go to parks and movies more. I’ve even been getting a lot of fives lately. I guess I haven’t been cutting back as much as I thought. The up side is that I’ve been getting a lot of hits every day. I have 16 so far today.

I have hit two more bills this month. (#9 and #10) This brings the total to 133 bills hit so far, including ten last month.

Maybe if I try, I can get out today before one, not that the banks are open past then…
