We got a call early this morning from the man at the thrift store where we bought the dining room furniture. He wanted to deliver it today, so we quickly got dressed and drover over to the house. I swept and mopped the kitchen floor so that it would be ready to put the furniture in. This furniture looks so good in our house!
I really wanted to eat lunch there but there is no food over there yet. Dang it! But I do look good sitting there, don’t ya think?
Oh, and those dishes the guy threw in for free? Noritake Adagio China! There is service for eight, plus sugar bowl, creamer, oval platter, and vegetable bowl. There is one saucer and one cup missing. This has got to be my BEST thrift shop find, ever! FREE!
We have been wanting to fire Bank of America for quite some time, and when I found out there was a credit union nearby I was ready to do it. We drover over to Coosa Valley Credit Union in Cedartown to open an account. Rick, the branch manager helped us get our account open in no time. Because it is a credit union, you have to open a savings account and keep a small balance in it, but then your checking account is free if you have good credit. They have online bill pay at no charge, too, so it will just be a matter of changing everything over from BOA. Thank goodness we are getting away from them.
After Rick finished setting up the account, he had me sit at his desk and create my online account too! That to me was very good customer service. I was ready to do my banking online as soon as I walked out the door! The last thing to do was to see Teresa, who handled our first deposit. She was so nice and friendly too! I think we are going to like our new credit union.
The next stop was at the Haralson County Government Complex to file for homestead exemption on the house. We also talked to the tax assessor’s office about reassessing our house. The house was assessed at $97.000 last year, but we only paid $45,000. The closing attorney told us they can’t assess the house for more than we paid for it the first year. We got that handled today too.
A short hop down the street took us to the Farm Bureau Insurance office. They are the ones who provided the homeowners insurance policy that we needed at closing, but we hadn’t yet received our policy in the mail. I wanted to check on that and talk about having them insure our truck and trailer as well. It was a good thing we stopped there, because the policy had been returned to them because there was no mailbox installed yet when the post office tried to deliver it. We got all that stuff handled, then finally got on our way home. It was a long, busy day, but we accomplished quite a lot that was on the “to do” list. Only problem is, I am making a fresh new “to do” list tonight.
