I would love to go on vacation. I think I will make that a priority for next year! Do you always go somewhere different?

Quoting Schmayder ♥:" Whats the guideline for the EIC do you know? I'm hoping i'm still able to qualify!!"


Well for us, if you're married with one child, you had to make $43 or less. just search EIC qualifications in google

Quoting Mrs. God of Thunder:" Same here. I bought a couch for $400 from Weekends Only a few years back after I won $810 at bingo ... [snip!] ... chair at Goodwill a couple weeks ago, so I'm just going to keep looking there. I'd much rather spend like $50-$100 then $400."


Right! I don't see the point in buying a super expensive one if my fat ass dog can't stay off of it LOL

Quoting *B & D Mommy*:" Aww lol! We always love tax time though even though a lot goes towards bills because we always get behind during holidays and my sons birthday. "


Yeah, that happens here, too. We FINALLY got caught up on bills (we weren't late, but literally going from pay check to pay check) from October-December. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and my birthday kiiiiilled us :lol:




SO wants to take a little vacation, and put away some of his return for it. But I don't see that happening. He and I combined will get back a little less than $2k. And mine will be gone.. so more like $1k is left, lol.

I'm scared to buy one and have it just fall apart again. We also bought two matching lamps that were metal and kinda vintage looking, and one night while we were home, one of them just started smoking and making spark noises... I am so glad we were home, for it probably would have burned down our damn house!!

Yep :D Last year we just drove to Kansas City (About 3 hours away) & stayed at great wolf lodge with the kiddos, so this year we're leaving them behind and going on an adult vacation :lol:

I'm always excited for tax time, but we definately don't get nearly as much as you all do! I'm hoping we get at least $1000 this year so I can buy some new tires for the car. And get some contacts or glasses and maybe even a haircut.

Oh damn! That isn't good at all. And yeah definitely a good thing you were home! Somehow that reminded me about something that happened a couple of months ago...Me and the kids were in the living room and SO was kneeling in the doorway of the kitchen and living room petting the dog and all of a sudden the light cover in the kitchen fell and smashed to the floor! Scared the shit out of us. Thankfully it happened when no one was underneath it...usually the kids are in the kitchen with me playing on the floor right where it dropped :shock:

P.s we're not married, so I usually get a good chunk back w/ the EIC. Boyfriends hoping he wont owe, but if he does we'll just pay it out of mine :lol:
