The big Man above is the best. I just checked the mail, one of our income tax checks arrived. I was venting yesterday on how we were broke. We got back $7,000. I'll be taking $500 and putting it back in an emergency fund. Boy...we had $30 which I had to use and now I can put $500. We can also get our brakes fixed and our car insurance is due.

God has been great to me. Like I mentioned in my post "just when I though we were getting..." He has blessed me with my kids, etc.

That is wonderful news. What a huge refund. If you haven't already could you adjust your income tax withholdings. This would give you $583 more income per month instead of giving the government an interest free loan of your money for 16 months.

Just a suggestion for your consideration.

Here's a link for an IRS withholding calculator - http://www.irs.gov/individuals/article/0,,id=96196,00.html I haven't tried it,yet. Hope it's not complicated.

Good idea! Only a warning--if you do that, immediately adjust your finances so that $583 a month goes immediately toward debt and/or investments. Otherwise, it'll disappear before you really realize you've got it.

Congratulations, MYM, on this terrific break!

You know it wierd how it always works out in the end. My husband and I have been dealing with the "ain't got no money" thing from the beginning of our 2 yr marriage (way too much debt, loss jobs, etc). And just when I think "this is it", something comes through totally unexpected. I'm a firm believer!!

By the way, congrats on your return!! Awesome!!
