Child care fees are exy, actually downright astronomical. I pay ours monthly and it's a large debit all in one hit. When I set up the DDR, I chose credit card simply due to convenience and didn't think much else of it. Well three months of fees passed and this week was the first time I've properly looked at the statement of account from the child care head office. Boy, am I glad I did. In fine, fine, print on the original DDR there it was... 1.87% fee per credit card transaction. Needless to say, from now on I'll be saving a hefty $38 each month on pointless credit card transaction fees. Lesson learned.
I was feeling rather glum last night with the forecast of cloud and rain for today. Instead, it delivered beautiful Spring sunshine and a fresh breeze. It was still decidedly chilly down on the beach this morning. But it was also stunning and exhilarating and breathtaking. Nothing beats that crisp, clean, salty air. I should already know not to take weather forecasts as gospel. They are so often wrong. Another lesson learned.
