Ram receives 6 paychecks each month-twice a month payday from each church in the tri-parish. Church #1 pays him in person as close to the 1st and 15th each month (if he has turned in his mileage expenses at the end of the month). Church #2 pays him either in person or mails it, whatever is easiest for the treasurer on the 15th and 30th. Church #3 mails his paychecks ahead of time and trusts us to cash them on the 15th and the 30th when they are dated.
While Ram was at Synodical convention, the 15th came, so I went to cash the check from church #3, but I couldn't find it. I assumed it was around here somewhere. I couldn't remember if the treasurer had given it to Ram even though he usually mails it. My plan was today to go through my huge pile of mail and look one more time before calling the treasurer. This morning we received a phone call that when the treasurer went to do the books he realized he made a mistake and never sent us the checks. He's mailing them today. I'm thankful that I didn't lose the checks and that I don't have to look through my messy pile for them any more.
