This and That

I mailed my taxes over the weekend. 

Our taxes were already completed and filed, but we owed taxes to the federal government so decided to wait until they were actually due to mail the payment. We received a refund from the state that exceeded the amount of what we owed to the federal, so overall, we came out on top.

The Husband has been exceedingly busy at work! On his last paycheck, he had over $400 of overtime. He will have close to three times that on his next paycheck. Although I hate how stressed out he has been and how much he has been working, the extra money is nice. Some of it will go into savings (I took money out for taxes, so we were below our savings comfort threshhold), some of it will go to paying random expenses, and the remainder will go towards debt.

May is a busy month for our family! It's my birthday, mother's day, The Daughter's birthday, our anniversary, and the end of the school year. It can get spendy. The Daughter is going to be 16 so we are throwing her a "big" party. It's not actually too big or too expensive (sort of). She is having 11 friends over to swim, watch an outdoor movie, and spend the night. The only part that might be expensive is that we are going to heat the pool. We've lived in this house for 4 years and never heated the pool. I'm a little nervous about the cost. The Daughter loves succulents so I am going to make succulent cupcakes and she is giving out succulents for her favors.  We are borrowing an outdoor projector and movie screen so only have to pay to purchase a movie.

The end of the school year is busy for anyone with kids in school or who are teachers. But man, is it exhausting! I cannot wait to get this school year in the books, and I hope and pray I never see another like it!

    Unless you really want to keep the movie, or are set on a very specific one, maybe check to see what might be available through your library?
