I haven't done one of these in a while....here is how the week looked for us:
The Good: Taxes are 98% done (need EIN number for something and then they can be e-filed). We were shooting for about a $1000 refund....and we came in at $1035. We estimated well on this.
Additionally, we got a weird $43 check from our old homeowner's company. Dunno. But hey, it is $43.
And, one of our doctor's offices has been a little behind on billing. We have been paying our co-pay weekly, but not getting reimbursed from FSA (ours is automatic). FINALLY, we got reimbursed for 3 visits...so that is another $60 we got back. I am sure the remainder will be coming soon.
The Bad: We owe $192 in state taxes. This is a bummer. We even increased our state withholding last year after we owed $145 last year. But we made a little more, and here we are. It could be alot worse.
The Ugly: The looming government shut down. As I said the other day...the only reason we have a cushion is because we haven't spent the refi money yet. If things had gone according to plan in the past 2 months....we would be soooo screwed.
