Best Laid Plans

February 25th, 2015 at 08:36 am

This is what I planned to do with my tax return:

Having the duct work cleaned in the house
Replacing the vanity in the downstairs bathroom(it is all warped and mold infested)
**Catching up car payment(not even a month behind, but past due date)
Pay Additional amount to Best Buy card(over half of the balance)
**Pay for DD Senior Pictures
**Give MOM $200

I have done the ones with the asterik. And I did pay extra to the Best Buy, just not as much as I wanted. I was set to do the vanity this week. Until I found out that we needed to pay for DD's dorm room registration fee. So there goes the vanity for now. I will get it done sometime in the future.

DD was accepted into KSU(Kennesaw State University) and has to live on campus for the first year. That is the reason for the dorm. But I don't know who is more excited, me or her! I will miss her terribly but am so proud of her for doing this.

Financially I am doing okay. We have had terrible weather here for the last week and a half. I missed a Saturday at my second job, which is the day I get the most hours) and will likely miss tomorrow morning as well due to snow and ice. Then I took this coming Saturday off for my niece's baby shower. So that check is going to quite slim. But that's okay. It isn't worth risking damage to myself or my car for that extra $$.

We are also in the middle of prom season. We have purchased the dress and had the first fitting last night. But thank goodness my sisters are covering those expenses!

    I plan on giving $500 to church and using the rest to buy long term care insurance

    Don't beat yourself up too much. After all, you did what is likely the most important of your goals and that was to catch up your car payment because cars can be repossessed. Good progress. Congrats to your daughter on acceptance to college! Big Grin

    You were able to accomplish most of what you wanted to do, and even had money left to meet an unexpected expense! I'd say that is doing pretty good!
