I'm kind of lovin' dear Uncle Sam right about now! How often is it that you hear that?
We were expecting our tax return. It was $1742. And don't say that we should adjust our with holdings, there is no way that I would be able to save the extra $33.50 a week. Real life would get in the way and I would have nothing. Anywho, because I'm super anal I balance our checkbook every day. Habit! If only I was that disciplined with my diet. You know, I'm pretty pleased with how I'm turning out in just about every other aspect of my life except this one. Sorry, it's like I have ADD.
Anyways, I called to check the balance of our check book and glory be, we had gotten our refund. And dear Uncle Sam had tacked on an extra $500. My first feeling was YAY and then what kind of evil trick is this. Was this a ploy to get me in trouble?
But alas, it was not some cruel and evil trick! It was our money. My FIL forgot a deduction a year ago and the U.S. government caught the mistake. Which in its self is a bit scary, why are they looking at little ol' me? Anyways, the money is going to fund the funds! And it couldn't of come at a better time, we were falling a bit behind because of our new "healthy" diet. It is costing a bit more and my monthly budget isn't compensating for it very well.
So that is what is going on in my life.
Thanks for stopping by,
