Happy venting! I found out this week that we are getting $4000 back from the IRS. We pay quarterly and I always over pay to make sure that any overtime my husband gets doesn't come back to bite us in the rear at the end of the year. This year not much overtime plus my sons education credits got us way ahead of the game.

Of course the money is spent already. Pay off the credit card, new tires for my husband and I'm setting aside some for next semester's tuition for son. Oh well.

Isn't it great you can get all that done with the money and not have to go into debt!

Great news!

Spike does the taxes for a blind couple he as known for years. They are both over 65 and still working for the Blind Commission. So they get an exemption for being over 65, blind, and a few other goodies. They always get back more than they paid in.

For my happy vent;

I really didn't think he would do it, but Spike is actually going to bring me a ladder and clean the top sashes of my windows. That child never ceases to amaze me. Now I need to get out in that kitchen and start cooking something nice for him.

Shall we become her very best friend for a while? Or at least until we can run up the credit card again.

Yeah, it's tough when the hubby needs new tires... Shrek's tire looks like it's going to have a blowout...

Good for you! Ours has been paid off for a few years. Now I use it more than I ever have, and I pay it off every month. No interest! Such a great feeling to know I am able to use self control!

After feeling horribly sick and being in pain the last few days, I am finally feeling better. Feel great whooo hoo!!! Kidney stones have passed, flu is all but gone and my little Princess turned 11 today! Can't believe my baby is growing up so fast.
She loved her presents and her cake, wen't to bed smiling. Just love it when my children are happy :)
I'm pooped and covered in edible glitter but it was a great day.
