Alright, darling possums, I am BACK.
Yesterday was the first day at work and it was also the first time I looked at my bank account to figure out how much difference my raise makes and you know what, totally awesome. It will make a nice difference.
Don’t get me wrong. I did not overextend myself when I purchased this condo, as my mortgage is only $30 more than my rent. But then you add the monthly insurance and the condo fee and the first part of the month is a bit tight. So this raise loosens the belt a little, meaning, I can pay more bills.
My favorite bill I paid yesterday was to the State of Massachusetts.
But Fabulous, you might ask, why is that? Taxes? Garbage removal fees? What could it be?
Oh no, my darling possums.
I think the state is super broke. Because apparently they want and audited taxes for 2006 and wanted the money back that they had given to me as a refund. A whopping $112. Now, I don’t mind paying taxes, but I do mind when they give me the money back and then ask back for it. That’s like getting a gift and 3 years later someone wants it back.
I paid it. For a short time I was contemplating whether I should be that colossal pain in the ass and ask them for exact documentation on how they came up with that amount, but I just paid.
Ah. Money, money, money.
It’s a new year. Let’s make it a kick ass one.
