Well I finished the taxes tonight. Actually I have to check on something for Kenyon's local form since he collected some unemployment this year. Once I get that I will be done.
I was quite surprised when I did the federal taxes last evening that we had taken such a hit this year. I consider our family quite lucky compared to many that have lost jobs and had their hours cut much more than what we have. Kenyon was fortunate enough at work to be one of the people that worked the most hours. Many people were let go and/or their hours cut. They are calling some of them back. I sure hope the economy turns around soon.
The good news is that after the frustration of doing the taxes - we do get money back
Now I just have to figure out what to spend the money on - lol - the options are endless. Actually, I think it will go towards the siding we need to get on the house - HOW BORING - but needed. I do think I will be getting a new exercise ball and some sneakers though and of course Rebecah will need (um - want) some clothes and Jesse - hmmmm - a new skateboard???? I just want a little to have some fun with - the rest can go to house stuff as usual.
Happy Friday - I hope you all have a great weekend.
ps - have no fear - I'm sure I will come up with a way to spend the money
