I usually look forward to doing my taxes! I know, I'm sick in the head - but as a single parent I can usually expect a little something back each year so tax season doesn't freak me out anymore.
This year most of my tax refund will be going to go towards new carpet but in years gone by I would normally take my tax refund and do a little shopping. For me.
Ok all you moms out there - how hard is it to buy something for yourself? Honestly! I will pick up a new pair of pants or a cute shirt and them put them back because Muffin could really use another top for school or it's time to invest in her footwear again. Am I alone? I think not!
So, I think we should band together and use our tax refund to buy something for ourselves. (ahem, after I buy new carpet for the house that is) Are you with me? What are you going to splurge on? I'm thinking a new pair of shoes or maybe even *gasp* new underwear!
I'll tell you what I won't be doing with my refund - sharing with baby's daddy. Sorry pal, it seems I've learned how to say "no" after all. Besides, the economy needs me to go forth and make large purchases. Gotta spend for the sake of my country - right? Right!
