Financial survival
I balanced my checkbook just now.  I had more money than I thought, somehow.  I'll be able to pay my real estate tax before I get paid.  Which is fortunate since it's due before I'll get paid.

When that first check comes in, it will be close to a month's pay.  I think.  I know when I get paid, but I don't actually know what the lag between the days I'm paid for and the time I get the check.  You'd think that would be information that wouldn't be that hard to find on the web site, but you'd be wrong on that one.  As long as I get paid for a reasonable chunk of the month, I should be able to make it through the credit card bill for the trip to Minnesota and last until the August paycheck for a full month.  (Which, since I don't think I've ever been paid only once a month, will easily be the biggest paycheck I've ever gotten.)

You probably need to ask someone in the Payroll office what that lag-time is.

I'll ask the department secretary on Monday; I bet she knows. But I can't believe that it's not on the web where I can find it myself.
