I realized belatedly that I had been counting 3 checks deposited as RDA deposits; this added about $100 to the total I figure RDA owes RH.
Being in a charitable mood, I decided to try including June in the figuring, since you said something about having contributed $1000 recently and expecting it back.
Unfortunately, June only makes your situation worse; to get back to June 1, you owe $1118.73 without figuring in the phone bills.
It also more accurately shows my standing; since June 1, I have put a net $1222.83 into Red House, of which Red House has lost $1158.86. Note that this should have left Red House with a gain of $63.97, which starting from a balance of $953.72 on 6/1 should have meant that there was $1017.69 -- plenty of operating capital, as opposed to the present negative balance.
Continuing to be in a charitable mood, we could perhaps presume RH's monthly phone charges look something like this:
$20.00 basic phone service (which is what I had before we combined lines) $20.00 bellsouth.net internet service $ 5.00 voice mail w/no-answer forwarding $ 5.00 misc. long distance ------ $50.00
Going from the records, I see refunds for the account rearrangement were issued on April 6. These total $59.82 and were deposited in my bank account -- so let's credit RDA with $59.82
-$392.72 + 59.82 ======== -$332.90
Next, April thru September is 6 months. 6 Months of $50/month is $300.
-$332.90 + 300.00 ======== -$ 32.90
So, I am willing to posit that ultimately, all you owe in order to be caught up with 7/1 is (approximately, depending on the exact amount of RH's share of the phone bills) $32.90. I would like to see this amount deposited as soon as possible; I am assuming that your version of the figures will be ready for me to reconcile when I get to Athens (if it isn't already there). Please let me know if this assumption is false.
This does not excuse taking out the money just because you felt you needed it, but at least the discrepancy is now a relatively small amount which you should be able to come up with.
I'm also being very <censored> reasonable in figuring in RH's probable BellSouth usage charges for you. It does not strike me as reasonable to make a lot of noise about how much someone owes you without being willing even to produce a statement showing the exact amount, much less an itemization; it is less reasonable still to simply take it from them.
If you feel that July 1 is not a fair date for maintaining a "freeze", please let me know what date you would like things figured back towards. Our positions to get back to 6/1 would be:
- RH owes Nick $1163.01*
- RDA owes RH $758.91
(* I don't plan or expect to be able to enforce this any time in the near future, because obviously the money isn't there yet.)
I have attached the latest version of the spreadsheet, with the figures for June and the corrections for the phone bill.
And I look forward (as mentioned earlier) to seeing your numbers when I arrive. If you wanted to fax them to me, Sandy has set up a fax program on the 919-402-9774 line; if nobody picks up in 5 rings, the fax modem will kick in and I should receive the fax. Warn me via ICQ if you want to send a fax so I don't pick up when I see that I'm calling myself...
