whatever happens

I get my tax refund sometime between tomorrow and next Monday, at which time I shall be rich. For about an hour. My beloved old laptop died and has to be replaced, I need a new VCR player (yeah, VCR, that's not a typo), and I have had a major lust for the new Kindle Paperwhite (light pointing down! woohoo!). Plus I need a bit to get my budget back on, um, budget. So I'll be a pauper again in a short time, but a happy pauper.


That's how I feel every payday. I won't get my tax return until May, and it's all going on Student Loan/House Fund.

Sucks about your laptop. Mine lost sound about a month and a half ago, but it seems to be working just fine otherwise.
I'm envious. We haven't got a tax refund since I was a stay-at-home mother, 25 years ago. Instead, we have to pay the feds quarterly just to break even, and we always have to pay the state at filing time. And it's not like we have a huge income! However, I AM glad for you, even if I'm envious. ♥
Part of the reason is that during all the financial wiffle-waffle a few years ago, someone told me I'd need $40/month extra for taxes, so I added an extra $40 to my tax withdrawal. When I finally figured out I wasn't screwed, I didn't bother changing it again. I really like having that refund to buy things that I wouldn't otherwise be able to afford.
