A little bit here and there.

I went to Kohls this morning to return a belt, and ended up walking out with a pair of pants each for the kids. But worry-not about my spending, because the total cost for 2 pairs of pants was less than the cost of 1 belt. So I had enough money to buy a McGriddle sandwich at McDonalds. (What, you think I could have come home with actual money left over? Psh.)


I've done something that is giving me much guilt. I've forgotten to mail a birthday package to a 4 year old. Her birthday was on the 31st of December. And I was very good about going out the day after Christmas and buying her a gift. But I was very bad about actually sending it. It is still sitting here - right next to the couch in the front room. I just haven't found a suitable box to mail it in. That's my excuse for not mailing it. Also, I haven't had a chance to get to the post office with various sick children. But still, not mailing a present to a little child is kind of lame. This weekend, though, it will get mailed. This weekend for sure. Hopefully.


Do any of you have your taxes done yet? I am itching to get our finished. Mainly because I want to see if we'll be getting anything back this year. But also because I just want it to be over and done with. It wears me out worrying about whether or not we'll have to pay anything. I want to know! But we don't have all the statements we need just yet, so I'll have to wait. But you can bet that as soon as I get it all in the mail my taxes will be done, done, done! (Whether or not they're filed right away will depend on if Uncle Sam is going to cut me a check or not.)

uh, remember that 4 year olds mom didn't mail your bday gift out until MONTHS after your bday. and that 4 year old has so many presents still under the tree (unwrapped but unopened) because it just seemed silly to open them all on one day. between christmas and her bday i think we have enough gifts to last us till valentine's day!!!

and taxes.....i can't wait either, but don't have my w2 yet. we've never had to pay anything yet. and all of ours is going towards bills (we always have it spent before we actually have it!!!)

i still can't get over the fact that it's 2007.......

are you feeling any better??

Well it's good to know that she's not lacking in toys! ;)

And yes, I'm feeling better. I'm not really what I would consider sick, just kinda blah.
