Whoa! That's Not Right

So, I logged onto our bank account today to see what was up...and it shows the pending deposit for Wednesday's payday.  Surprise - the amount is listed for several thousand dollars more than I was expecting.  What to do?

Well, primarily, don't spent it.  Since this is a mid-month pay, we won't be able to see the full accounting until the LESes are released in a few weeks.  We will just have to put that money aside and wait until we can see what has happened.  Maybe there hadn't been an error, maybe I'm just confused.  Totally possible, since we have just moved into a new house and we are owed some back housing allowance.  Nothing I can do right now but wait.

And not spend the money.
