…and exhale

….and exhale.

That would be a deep sigh of relief.

For the first time in about 6 months, I feel like there is hope for us.

Financially that is.

There is a beautiful bright spot of hope on the horizon… our tax refund.

Three cheers for the IRS! 

HIp Hip Hooray! Hip Hip Hooray! Hip Hip Hooray!  

Granted, it would be a lot more had we taken care of 2009 tax debacle in a more timely manner.  But that will no longer be hanging over our heads, and we will come out a little bit ahead.  YES!

Enough ahead that we can get (desperately needed) new tires on the truck and catch up on a couple of things we are on the verge of being behind on or just put it in the bank.  Putting it in the bank is probably the better way to go, but at the same time, we are never going to get ahead if we are constantly behind. Right?

(Oh, and we got a letter the other day that hubby had about $300 left over from an old 401K that had gone unclaimed… so we should hopefully be getting that sometime  too! Sweet!)

All I know is that I felt like a huge weight was lifted off of my shoulders yesterday once I got the taxes filed. We should have our refund in 8-14 days(hopefully).. as long as our bill from last year doesn’t mess things up. 

Although, I’m confident that the IRS will figure it out. 🙂

Happy Wednesday! 🙂

One response to “…and exhale

  1. Congrats, I definitely know that feeling! The past year or so have been very rough for us financially. This Friday we get our Federal return and my husband’s bonus from work…we’ve been doing some major planning and will get caught up on bills, take care of a few things around the house, and set aside some for savings/emergencies 😀
