One week and two days.

That's how quickly we got our Fed tax refund! Woot woot! I e-filed that puppy last Wednesday and this morning the hub nudged me in bed to tell me our refund hit our account. Yay for e-filing! The craptastic year we had in 2008 was a strain on the wallet (ahem, townhouse), but it looks mighty purty on a tax return. So watchout, debt snowball, you're about to get your arse kicked! (Or at least heavily bruised.)

Hope y'all have a fabulous weekend! And of course, a wonderful Valentine's Day too! The hub and I are doing our usual fondue dinner at home tomorrow night in our Valentine jammies. There's just nothing better! Lots of mushy, mushy love to you all! :-)

yay! yay! yay on your tax refund!! my debt snowball is about to get kicked heavily in the arse as well as soon as my return gets here :) i think it will get us 100% out of credit card debt but then we will have to start killing those student loans. i may contact you soon about exactly how you managed your car situation ... mine is leased (gasp! dave would die if he knew lol) and I am trying to figure out the best way to go once my lease is done which is in just a couple of months. my husband thinks we can get by on one car for a couple of months but i don't know how we will manage. I need some encouragement!!! happy v-day :)

Dear Fed,

Thanks for your swift action....FINALLY.

I did mine last night and will be e-filing it this weekend. Here is to hoping I get the same quick response :)

What a great Friday for you!

Yay! We're in the same boat--kickin that debt, and the refund will surely help (we're ALMOST there!)

Congrats on your big payoff!! That's so exciting!

Your fondue party sounds so nice. My hubby and I did that for Christmas one year and really enjoyed it. We're staying in as well and cooking together. Have a great one!
