Finally got around to doing my taxes. I get $845 back from Federal and $28 from State. The Federal is a little high so need to adjust for that.
My company gave us a 2% bonus in our 401Ks so instead of matching 6% last year they will match 8%. Nice.
Was snowing this morning so mom and I walked at Wal-mart. We have been walking outside since the time changed. We saw our first wild flowers yesterday and mom said she saw a robin. We still have quite a bit of snow on the ground from December.
Got a letter from Experian saying something potentially damaging was added to by credit report. I expect it was that mess with my mortgage company, so now more phone calls. Makes me so mad, that they can screw up and then screw up your credit on top of it. I'm supposed to get my credit report in a week to see what it actually says.
I did send another $9000 to pre-pay my mortgage. The sooner it is gone, the better.
I have Friday and Monday off as vacation days. Went shopping with mom yesterday. Used one of my xmas gift cards to get ink at Best Buy and got a free ream of paper that I will add to my Dad's b-day present.
Tried the new orange cream Cadbury easter egg. Yum!
I've been doing a lot of jigsaw puzzles lately and got a great one from Target. It's a Thomas Kincaid painting of a cabin in the woods in the winter. A lot of blues and whites which should make it challenging. I hate it when the puzzles are too easy.
Read the library book the Alexandria Link by Steve Berry. Adventure. If you enjoy Dan Brown books you will like his books.
