      The long month verses the short was one of my curiosity. I am still

      on hold for my first check. November will be my first 5 week check.

      Even though I get a five week check this time around, only because of

      my hire date and a silly rule they sprung on me after I started the

      job.

      I like the idea of the menu’s and the envelope for shopping mid

      month. This is something I need to do.

      So many good ideas have been posted. I am thankful to everyone for

      there input.

      Good to know I am not alone.

      Thanks

      Lisha
