Filed my tax returns today; getting a bit of a refund. Also the paycheck with the bonus arrived in my account today (I didn't expect it until Monday but was very glad to have it early). I paid down some debt and am actually almost to my goal for the end of the year already (meaning that I will adjust that goal downwards).
I also am keeping aside a couple of thousand of the bonus & refund for the home/car repair and veterinary expenses that are bound to arise during the year, plus another few hundred to either repair my bicycle or buy a new one. Will be taking the old bicycle to the shop in the next week or so to get an estimate of cost to refurbish it. It's 30+ years old but they don't make frames like they used to--this one is sturdier, so it IS a bit heavier, but it's not *that* much heavier than a similar bike manufactured today.
Looking forward to a time when I will have time to ride it--even though I don't do tax prep any more, my work load early in the year is always disproportionately busy.
