Ah-ha!

I found my checkbook! You might recall that I lost it last spring too. This happens twice a year, every time I need the dumb thing. I just never write actual checks. Except when writing an actual check is my only option. Then I spend a week in a hot panic as I search every crevasse of my household. But I found it. Want to know something even more pathetic than constantly misplacing an important document like a checkbook? My name on the checkbook and coordinating debit card, is spelled incorrectly! Their fault of course, but I never bothered to go in and remedy the situation. That was nearly four years ago. FOUR. Only once in four years has anyone ever asked me why my card and license have a different name. Which is nearly as sad when you think about all the issues with identity theft and credit card fraud these days. But I see that I am about out of checks. Perhaps this will be my motivation to finally get my name spelled correctly.

I swear I am not really a total flake. I just don't keep after a book of tiny pieces of paper that I use no more than twice a year very well. We all have our flaws!

I always find myself in a panic when I need to write my rent check because I can never remember where my checkbook is! I use it so rarely that I've been on the same book of checks for 3 years! I'll probably move before I even have a chance to use the others that come in the box.

I'm glad you found yours though!

Uh, that is really unfortunate that people never ask. So glad you found it though! I always wonder the same thing (in regard to identity theft) like, signing the back of your credit card- if someone steals my card, you're not going to ID them because I have signed it! Ugh. Stupid, Stupid.

That is too funny. My husband lost his check book for the 2nd time in 2 weeks!!! I hope he finds his soon too!!

How is that possible? I don't mean losing the check book. I lose things all the time, keys, jewelry, pink pig ornaments, etc...I mean how is it that you don't write checks very often? I think our check book numbers are now in the 10 thousands (seriously).

I am SO bad about my checkbook too. I only use it once in a blue moon!

I lose things all the time! We missed you tonight at the preppy bloggers get together before the LILLY sale. We all were saying how much we love your blog. Maybe spring?!

I just keep one blank check in my wallet for emergencies, I never write checks!
