It seems as though, something is always messed up with it, so I am constantly checking my balance on line, to make sure it matches with there records. Last pay day I accidentantly switch deposit and less cash recieved and again I am overdrawn at the bank?

Yes so far I can but I do make mistakes too and have overdrawn a few times. After all I am human just as we all are. I was tested on my strengths and weakness' and come to find out I have a math disability (I hate math! lol) and so it's harder for me to deal with my checkbook than an average person but I'm doing it all fine so far. It took my mother several times to show me how to balance it with a statement but finally I got the understanding of it and now can do it on my own. I will say though that I did mess it up one time and couldn't get it straightened out nor could the bank so I took it to an accountant friend and she figured it out for me. Whew! Thank God!

Ugh! What a question to ask, specially me. I never fail to forget to put an entry in my checkbook resulting in overdrafts.

I am actually really bad about keeping the check book up to date but knowing Hubby is going to check it every now and then really helps me to keep up with it. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~
