it's all about the benjamins, baby

The $8,000 housing credit definitely put a fire under me last year to buy a house.  I felt ready emotionally and I was definitely ready to move out of my neighborhood, this was just the push I needed.

Too bad I didn't have that same fire when it came time to file my amended tax return!  I just mailed it in yesterday.  Seriously?  WTF was my problem?  I'll just chalk it up to this whole year getting away from me.  I feel like I blinked and suddenly it was August.

But I did it!  And in 6-8 weeks (or 3-4 months as the woman at H&R Block said it took her son's check to arrive), I'll get one of these babies in my mailbox:


Maybe I'll cash it in for 80 of the new $100 bills.  They're kinda pretty and definitely trippy:


And then I can just run around town with a pocket full of Benjamins!

Hire a handyman, hire a handyman! Get the whole place painted, enlarge your closet, get an attic door and maybe one random lovely additional thing. And then get a couch! :)
