I got my final stock checks in the mail. The total came to $3,429. Not as great as I had originally hoped but more than my goal of $3,000. The only problem is that I spent half of the money on my Thanksgiving trip. Oh well, it was for a good cause.
Tomorrow is payday and I have been waiting to pay my property tax bill until I had enough money in my account. It will be nice to get rid of that bill and not have to worry about it for another year.
I usually pre-pay my state taxes by giving a donation to the schools in December but my budget is so tight that the money will have to come out of my extra mortgage money. I usually get all the money back but I have to wait until I do my taxes and get my refund. That will probably be March.
In other news, a friend invited me to bring stuff over for a garage sale on Saturday. Maybe I can get my dinette, drafting table and glider rocker sold before the dogs destroy them. It will be so nice to have the empty space. The only down side is that I have to get up at 6am on a Saturday. ugh.
