So much for TaxAct saying we would have them on Feb 13....they were in our account yesterday morning when I took Joes paycheck to the bank for him.
I took out ust a little bit and got a few things for Paige's b-day...a Kid Kleen Bath Blizzard and a Moon In My Room.....she wanted both for Christmas but I couldn't find either and finally found both yesterday after I left the bank ;) ) and for Kayla (I can't believe she will be here in a little over a month) I got a few outfits and some bottles and other odds and ends. I found new infant carseat at for $50 and will most likely get that tonight at WalMart. We are going there late tonight and I am FINALLY getting my Wii that I've been "getting" every holiday since last Mothers Day, but something unexpected alway's came up that we spent the money on instead. Now to keep my fingers crossed that I will come across a Wii Fit between now and giving birth. Its funny the Wii's stayed sold out for so long, and now you can find them but the Fit is a whole different story....lol
Part of my share will go towards a big chunk of the OB & Hospital bills and then I will make payments on the rest. I also plan to pay down credit cards and put enough into savings for the March and April car payments, life insurance payment and cable since I will be out of work for at least 2 pay periods (4 weeks) and maybe even 3.
I am just so happy they are here. I was all set to wait another week, but now I can make a huge dent in my OB bill when I go there on Wed. instead of having to wait.

That's a really nice surprise. Good luck on finding that Wii.

Well, we didn't get the Wii at WalMart #1, but we have 2 targets, 2 Kmarts, 3 more Walmarts a Sams & a Toys R Us that we will be near today if I really want to spend my day off looking....lol I told Joe just because one place is out, I'm not letting him off the hook that easily ;)

That's some refund to be able to do all that stuff with it. I'm envious. ;)

Mine's due on the 13th too, so I opened a new window to run check the bank account! Guess I'll have to wait. Congrats on getting yours sooner and the great shopping.

H&R Block said ours would be in the 10th. We got it Friday on the 6th. :rollsmile What we did get goes to house insurance, car insurance, and land taxes so nothing will be left. Just hoping there will be enough to pay all the bills.

IRS website said we will get ours on the 17th but I hope we get it on the 13th - that would be a heck of a vday present. :D
