#1) The IRS is freaking FAST fast FAST! My state and federal taxes were literally JUST sent in online (Last Thursday), and I already got both direct deposited into my account! Seriously, how tight is that? This is the first tax return i’ve done since buying our house, and i am totally LOVING home ownership right now :)
Federal: $3,036: The timing is impeccable. My Emergency Fund was down to $105 this week (from $3500+ last month due to our crazy Heloc freezing), so i welcome this sum with wide open arms :) I’ll be updating my net worth and Sexy Goals in the next few days, and now i’m sexcited!
State: $849: Yeee-haw! Another pile which should hopefully make it into my Emergency Fund this week.
#2) I am revising this site a bit, as you can probably tell, so i huge sorry in advance if i delete comments, feeds, or anything else that can possibly happen. My goal of writing one post a week day is still alive though, so don’t you worry about that my good friends. I hope you like the changes!
