    Kim I think the extra 10% a Gap Silver card thing. Gap card is my only store credit card (DH hates it as we are point people with USAA) but I love love that reward money every month ) Free money at Athleta? Yes please. Good job on the taxes Lisa.

    I went to my first women's self defense class this morning. Like, street fighting. Like, now "GRIND your fist into his nose, SEE THE BLOOD sort" of shouting at you class. It was rather wild.

    Something in my body crashed yesterday afternoon and I left work at 4:00 to go home and sleep. Slept for 2 hours, had some dinner & put the kids to bed, then slept from about 9:30 p.m. until 6:30 this morning! My body was just DONE, so I obeyed it. Geez.

    This weekend I have yoga & baking, as always! Juliet has a birthday party, we'll probably watch a movie with the kids, and run around. Nothing too special but I love my non-special weekends.

    And I'm impressed by all the animal raising and farming. Wow! Makes me feel very lazy.

    Mine are all ready to go, except I think I lost the receipt for DD's ballet. I am hoping I just didn't bring it home though, so I will check this weekend and then send them off. I don't think it will make much difference either way. We are getting over $3000 back! I love the return, but it kind of sucks that we have been paying interest on our line of credit, and not getting interest for this money all year. Not much we can do about it though, since it all comes from overtime pay.

    I love tax time. Most people i know hate it, but like you we get such a big return I can't wait for our T4s and receips to come in. If I told you how much we pay in childcare expenses alone you would probably fall over from shock, but that's why we get so much back. Can't you ask the dance studio for a copy of the receipt? Last year we got over $10K back because DH maxed out all his contributions; this year since he started his own business he was EI exempt, so we aren't getting as much. I keep trying to convince him I should stay home with the kids. I'm not doing a very good job apparently.

    We pay mountains of taxes all year long, and we STILL get a bill every year. It's awful.

    It's outrageous. Income tax, property tax, federal tax, state tax, then MORE TAX after all that! It's punitive.

    Guys, I want to change my career. What the hell, eh? I'm a paralegal as some of you know and the money's great and I work pretty close to home, but I'm burning the candle at both ends. Up at 5:30 to shower etc., get the kids up, drop them off at 7, get to work for 7:30, work till 4:30, do it all again in reverse, dinner, bath, bed, then maybe an hour to ourselves. I have no time for other stuff and I'm getting unhealthy because I'm not giving myself the attention I need. Sooooo, there's a university here that offers a 9 month massage therapist program, but it's more than $8000. I would love to do that. I have a frikkin great medical brain and DH would love that the program is only 9 months. I'm kind of getting excited just thinking about it. DH has always asked me why I don't go back to nursing school to upgrade, but truth be told I don't want the hours, plus with DH's schedule being a nurse would never work. So, what do y'all think about that? I want to be happy in what I do. I'm so miserable at my current job. The environment is downright toxic and it's literally making me ill.
