Counting down to that magical day...

>> Monday, February 21, 2011

Yes, I know this guy is paying taxes, and this post is all about getting tax money back, but seriously...who doesn't like Monopoly!  ;)

Yep, it's that time of year...the time of year when I check the bank account at least once a day waiting for that magical tax return money to be deposited!!  The sad part is that no matter how big that number initially may sound, when we start putting it on paper, it is gone WAAAYYYY too soon...at least that's how it works around here...For my top 10 Tuesday, I decided to let you all in on where that money is going in our household...

1.  Pay bills...I don't know about y'all, but money is tight around here, and this money is very much needed...

2.  New Carpet...the carpet in our living and dining room is dingy blue...I am sure at some point it looked nice, however, it was getting old when we moved in, and now 8 years later it has the wrinkles, and will not come clean...

3.  New Curriculum!!  This is one I am MAJORLY excited about!!  We have decided to go with Sonlight for our curriculum!  I am going to order both the P4/5 and K cores...I am planning to teach mainly from the K core, however that will give me the option to supplement some P4/5 with Bubba B.

4.    Princess K's dentist Appointment

5.  Kota's Vet Appointment  (including the soon to come snip snip)

6.  I am splurging this year on ME!!  I am saving up to buy a new DSLR since mine bit the dust last September, so I am putting a little of the tax return in my camera savings for my happy birthday to me!  LOL

7.  Paint for the Dining Room/School Room and Living room

If we have extra money, it will go towards...

8.  Kota's training...he is a good boy in general, however some obedience training will be welcome

9.  Lawn Mower...I really want an electric mower, however I am torn because I would love to have a John Deere mower  *blush*

10.  Kids Clothes...they have some things, but I still need to get their main wardrobe for the season...It would be nice to be able to get it done in one big shopping trip instead of getting a piece here and there...

Do you look forward to tax time??  What is your splurge his year?
