Keeping Tabs

I have a daily habit of checking our credit card account online. It only takes a few seconds, and I just like to make sure everything looks ok. Coincidentally, there are times it also lets me know that Husband is ok, too. Today he is traveling, and I wondered if he made it to his destination safely. I usually don’t call him right away, as I try to avoid acting like the worried wife (that I sometimes am). But our credit card already gave me the answer. Not only is he ok, but he’s also well fed (Taco Bell), all at a very modest price ($6). Thank you, credit card!

haha, don't you love how that works? When my husband was deploying, I knew he got to Afghanistan by the credit card!

Aaah, the beauty of technology. Just makes me think about how spouses used to deal with this! Wow!

Haha, I stalk my husband through the credit cards too. It is especially helpful when I don't know where he is traveling.

I've done the same thing! During deployment, if I hadn't talked to my husband in a few days it gave me such relief to see that he had at least purchased something!

Of course, the other side of this: I can easily see what my husband has spent over what he's SUPPOSED to spend! There's lots of "so, tell me what you bought at Walmart for $40 bucks???" going on!
