Called Barb at the landlord's office to double-check, and she said "Yep. Don't pay it this month!" I added "I wish you'd let me know!" and she said "I figured you knew what you were doing."
How silly. :-)
So now I can get rid of some extra credit card debt early this month (I usually wait to the mid-month paycheck) and have some money for holiday shopping and eating, and for traveling!
