I filed my taxes tonight, and it looks as though I will be getting nearly $2K back. Horray! Although, my California return will be held for a bit because of the budget, $200 worth.
It also looks as though my dad has someone lined up to buy my laptop, which breaks my heart, but will give me another chunk of change to pay toward my debt.
I hope I can maintain my cheery outlook as the year trudges on and the “windfalls” die down. That is always a test.
