Where it's at
I have little need for personal checks in this era of debit and credit cards and online bill payment. I have one monthly bill that I must still pay by check, but an electronic option appears to be in the works soon. If it weren't for paying the rent, I'd come close to writing zero checks a year.
Yet that way of paying one bill remains, which is why the fact that I can't find my checkbook is all the more vexing. I have other checks on hand to make one out (and throw off the sequence), but the location of the half used checkbook is beyond me.
I looked in the two places where I expected it could and should be but came up empty-handed. Hmm. I'm certain it hasn't been stolen but that I've misplaced it. But where? It's probably under a stack of something. This means I really need to straighten up the place, doesn't it?
