Two 13 hour days = tired, tired Ray

April 17th, 2008 at 04:27 am

This has been a killer week. Because of evening meetings, I put 13 hour days in both yesterday and OT because I am salary- but it washes on days that I have to leave early and get paid for a full day anyway. I am pooped.

I sent our taxes in yesterday. We paid (a lot) but it is because of the kids business (long story) and eventually I will be paid back...but it still hurt to write checks for over $7k (wrong or right, I took it from my IRA---but the kids know this + penalties has to be paid back down the road)...ugh. There's just something about mailing in a check at tax time that makes you question all the frivulous spending our govt does. I dont mind paying for things like schools, libraries, etc...but it irritates me big time for all those expenses that make no sense...(like $1200 rebates to stimulate the economy??? huh???)

My newly revised budget is working!! I have refueled the yearly escrow and emergency fund accounts and have started saving for DC. We even have a small long term saving account started!!

My mom has had two of her tests done so we should know some of the results early next week.

I hope life is good in your lives!

    I hope you get some rest my friend. Ugh, paying for the kids business, huh? I hope they are still doing well, zapping those bugs! Keep us posted on Nana!

    Those sure are some long days. I hope you get a chance to rest and rejuvenate soon.

    I feel your pain with having to pay taxes. This year was only the second time I've had to pay, but it was 4x as much as the first time I paid. Ouch.

    I agree with you about all the wasted tax money!
