Thank Goodness It Came!

Today our state tax refund was deposited in our account. HOORAY! Now we can breathe easy! We received back a whopping $3!!!

Jeremy and I think it would be best to spread it out over time and not spend it all in one place. We would rather have a reserve than nothing at all. We came up with a few ideas to use it on.

1. I was thinking that maybe we could take the kids to the bowling alley and let them look at the people bowling. Then we could go upstairs and look around where eat dinner, then we could take them somewhere and let them each get a gumball from a machine.

2. We could also go to the pool and let the kids go in and see the water, then walk around outside, then go and share a big family ice cream cone. A King Kong Cone is only $1.69. We could get one of those to share as a family and still have money left over.

3. Jeremy wouldn't mind, if there IS still some left over, taking the kids to the outside of the stadium when there is a football game going on inside. Then when the crowd cheers we could hurry and turn on the radio to see what is going on in there. Then we could have a family cheer. The kids would be welcome to scream and cheer as loud as they want to at this time. As long as we don't have to pay for parking, this plan should work out OK.

4. I think we could also go the miniature golf course and walk around on the course. I'm pretty sure we can walk around the course without having to get the ball. After that we could watch kids play games in the arcade.

Are we invited to come for the smashing activities?

At least your state gave you your money. California decided they needed it more than me. Although, now that they have passed a budget (one that includes taxing me up to my eyeballs) they will send it out as soon as they can.

You are so lucky to have so many options. Look at it this way, that is 300 pennies. Sounds like a lot more money now doesn't it!

Renee, you may want to hold on to it. good ol' Mr. Pres. may want it back next year and then some.
nah, what the heck, go blow it and have fun, I say!

You are hilarious!!! There are still dollar stores you know--That would be THREE treats!
Congrats on the refund and better cross your fingers that money like that comes again your way next year!

Why don't you put it into a college savings fund for your favorite child? Money like that doesn't come around very often, so you might as well give one of your kids a headstart in life.

This totally cracked me up! Be careful where you spend it - it will be gone before you know it! And don't forget to pay tithing. ;)

LOL! You crack me up! I love the pool idea and the cone, or the gumball. You don't want to spoil the kids though!=) Good times!

My personal favorite is the dollar store. You can get several share-able things there. That would stretch it even further. I'd really prefer your tax situation. We have to pay this year ... you don't want to know how much!!!
