Just checked the mail and we finally got our Economic Stimulus check! It "pays" to have 3 kids:) Oh yeah! Time to live it up! Okay, not really, but this will help pay for our summer travels coming up. Sah-weet.

yee haw! live it up, baby!

mamapickle said...

yeah 4 kids pays too! Next year you need to have your refund direct deposited. We got our check like a month ago. But that just means we found ways to spend it already :0

Why can't I get on your counter? I need to make like double comments of everything to catch up!

I thought our refund was going to be bigger. I mean don't get me wrong, $ is $, but I had already spent what I thought it was going to be in my head...so I was a little sad that I couldn't buy everything I wanted. :)

Your picture made me think of the theme song from The Apprentice. It's "For the Love of Money" by the O'Jays.

You could save a little of it if you stay at the Staffy Inn.

I just keep hoping we'll get to see you. Keep in in mind.

Have a great day. Drop by... I made breakfast for you

Amber said...

Amber said...

Jennifer said...

Hey, if you filed electronically, you would've had yours along time ago. It's all good though. Go crazy and spend your G's yo.

hoLLy said...

nicole and jennifer-there are some specific reasons we didn't do it that way. we know it would've gotten to us sooner that way, but we don't like giving the irs our bank account number. you never know what those little buggers will do with it. joey and i are also the type that never sign up for automatic billpay/automatic withdrawal for bills and stuff like that. don't like our important numbers out there. we've heard stories. . .

Sarah said...

Yay for extra moolah! we were bad and just put ours in the bank :)

Wendy said...

I was planning on doing all kinds of important stuff with ours, food storage, pay bills, savings, etc.....but I just couldn't resist and got Lasik! I never have been able to save money. Have fun with yours!

Tiburon said...

It pays even more to have 4 ;)

Have fun spending it :)

Man, I've got to get me some more of those little money makers.
