All Day on Hold

It's really hot here at Frog Central again. The east coast is sweltering right along with us - now you know how it's been here for a month! I decided not to go over to the festivities on the 4th because it was too hot and I don't need to pass out at the park. I never go to the fireworks because I want to be here to calm down Gertie. She was funny - she wasn't scared of the booms from the fireworks - she wanted to go out and bark at them. I decided that was the best thing to do for a couple minutes. She calmed down a bit after she got it out of her system. And I turned up the sound on the television.

I spent all of today on hold with the education loan service provider - they're the people that you pay your student loan to. What they don't tell you when you get a student loan is that when you start paying it back, it will get sold over and over again - changing where you have to send the loan payment constantly. With it being the 4th I went ahead and put in the payment with my bill pay service and lo and behold - I received a letter today that it had been sold to a new company. They really should tell you a little more than 3 days before it's due. So I called the old service provider - they'll forward it on and it will take 30 to 45 days. I called the new provider - they're a bit p.o.'d because they're not getting a payment for 30 to 45 days and want to slam me with a late fee. What! 3 levels of supervisors later - I'm not supposed to get a late fee but I have to call back in 3 weeks to be sure they've received the payment from the old place. I said that would be 21 days - not 30 to 45. Best they could do. I can tell this is going to be an on-going saga for a bit.

Hope you had a good 4th. I've got a couple new frogs to put up. I can hardly wait!
