Taking the time to unwind...

Hello guys and gals. Yes, I am still alive lol. I have been taking a mental break of sorts, and spending a lot of time being kind to myself.

I have read 2 and a half books in 3 days, cleaned a little, made some good meals, piled up on the couch with Jack and watched some good shows, and spending some time just doing whatever in the hell I wanted to, even if it was nothing.

With luck, we will get Jack's W-2 tomorrow, if not then next weekend, but when we do, it means fun time for us. We will be taking a short weekend vacation, which is so desperately needed, and while it may turn out we have to take Alex with is, it will still be fun. If he does get it tomorrow, that means dinner out and a shopping trip to get some girly stuff for myself ( Yes, I said girly stuff and myself in the same sentence *gasps* ) and who knows what else.

Jack even mentioned going to see a movie...in a theater....I almost passed out from shock! Lol.. Income tax is a good time for us, Jack works so hard, and we sacrifice all year to stay afloat, we get some well deserved fun time when income tax time hits.

I know I have been sadly remiss about posting, but to be honest, nothing much has gone on this week other than a hellacious rainstorm today.

Friday the 15th was Jack's birthday, the 18th was my Dad's birthday, and today is my eldest girl's 13th birthday. I am officially old now lol. So we get to buy an assload of gifts with income tax as well, which is nice, since we are always broke as hell when the actual birthday rolls around lol.

So hopefully a weekend of fun and debauchery *wiggles eyebrows*  for us. If not, it will still be good because we are together, as a family, and that is simply my favorite place to be....

Have a great weekend everyone!

Because we're buying a house this year we get an $8000 tax return. I almost died when I found out.
