Yes, sad but true!
I haven't done a financial report yet for March so here goes:
Money in the bank - yes
Owe money to the bank - yes but less
Credit cards paid off - yes
Interest and payments made on line of credit - yes
Food in the fridge - enough
Bills all paid in full - yes
Money transferred to savings - yes
Money transferred to credit card ($88) to pay for TV in June - yes
Tax refund received - not yet but soon
So, there you have it. The budget is chugging along taking care of itself. Payday is next Thursday and I'll likely have my refund by then too. I read somewhere that getting a refund is just poor planning. That I should ask to have more tax taken off at the source as opposed to lending it interest free to the gov't but I kinda like getting a nice little lump sum that would probably otherwise just get frittered away.
I am giving myself the gift of today to have as a lazy day. Read the paper, drink coffee and tea, catch up on blogs and posting, start a new book, maybe take a nap. I had a lovely dinner out with my brother and sister-in-law and then caught up with friends to go dancing and listen to a band that a friend plays in. I had a great time dancing and laughing with my girlfriends and Michael but when I got home my head was buzzing and my ears were ringing so I stayed up for a while to unwind making it 3am by the time I got to bed! But, that's ok, because I have a week off to catch up on things I need to do. Today, I can just "be".
What have you been up to on this lovely sunny Saturday?
