Will you spend it?


Most everyone has heard about the refund that will be coming in the mail for all tax paying citizens come May. No matter what you think about it, if you are like most people I have talked to, you probably already have a plan for your check. I know most financial advisers have been counseling people to bank it,but we have different plans. WE are going to renovate our bathroom from ground up. We only have one bathroom to begin with, so it will not be a pleasant undertaking. We need to ripe out paneling (our current walls), the chipping, rusting bathtub, the cracking wall liner, the falling-through-the-liner tiles, the faded light blue (yuck!) ceramic floor tiles and the old sink cabinet. Yes, it will be a HUGE undertaking. The reality is, though, if we are going to ever sell our house, it has to be done. No one would want it in the state it is in now. We have lived here for 6 1/2 years and tolerated it, but it has slowly over time grown worse and worse. Todd is not excited about all the work, and the lack of a tub and possibly a toilet will cause some problems. However, I am holding to the positive belief that when it is over, it will be worth it! (I HOPE!)

It'll be worth it. Anyway, the gov't is hoping people will throw the money back into the economy--that's why they're giving it out. Besides, investing in your home is smart, especially if you want to sell it.

I know it will be worth it, I just don't want to do it and deal with the hassle of it all.

Hey Chris and I just finished the last touches on our bathroom redo. We're in for the long haul with yours if you need the help. He's quite the handy man, and I just like remodeling everything :o)
