I filed our taxes on Friday because we had our required docs. I was an eager beaver to find out where we stood. We are getting back a combined federal and state refund of $1877. Yippee!!! I don't care what anybody says, it us way better to get a refund than owe. We owed last year and it was sucked.
My sister visited this weekend from New York. I love her dearly and only get to see her a couple times a year. She is single and doesn't have (or want) kids. She was happy to hang out with my kids but I could see that she was overwhelmed at times. She said the following comments **not meanly**: "I can see why rich people rely so much on their nannies," "Babies really are a lot of work, huh?" "Wow! babies are a constant work in progress." However, she handled the weekend well. She dried Lil Punk's hair, helped her decorate a Valentine box, and played Old Maid with us. We are lucky to have her visit from NY.
Have a good week, Everybody!
