Today is mine and Y's payday! I have always loved my paydays. It's such a good feeling all day long. Today is my commission check too so its a big one. I am also paid out today for my small quarterly bonus. My bonus was $445 after taxes. Not too much but better than nothing. My commission check was a big one, about $5500.
I transferred $5500 into savings today. We need the money in savings to pay for our house. We're still waiting on the appraisal and hoping that it comes in where we need it to be.
I also talked to the county tax assessor today and he is going to send me the paperwork to apply for the property tax exemption on our house. The first $150,000 is tax exempt for 2 years so it will be in affect for 2013 and 2014. That will be very nice.
In other unrelated news, my co-worker announced yesterday that she is expecting. I'm very happy for her and I think I'm ready to go down that path again. I'm leaning toward getting pregnant this fall. We'll see how that goes...
