What I thought we would spend our tax return on:
1.) A big old Costco bust-up. Giant size boxes of toilet paper!
2.) A weekend trip to a water park hotel!
3.) A railing for our steps out front so the postman doesn't sue us when he takes a fall.
What we actually spent it on:
1.) Bringing the mortgage up to date so we aren't sneaking in our payment right at the end of the grace period.
2.) Bringing our obscenely high gas bill current.
3.) Mother flipping student loans.
It does feel great to catch up with bills. Though the grumpy old lady in me wants to know where the hell her jumbo box of granola bars are. Dammit.
