Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


I got your stimulus right here, buddy!

I have to say that the timing of the economic stimulus package couldn't come at a better time for the Army of Mom household. We stimulated the economy PLENTY right before office politics ended up with Army of Dad being thrown under the bus.

Let's see what we've done in the last two months:
*a subcontractor $200
*the mechanic $157
*new clothes for me $131
*new Oakleys $144
*new vacuum cleaner $98
*new AC/furnace system $5775
*new water heater $900
*new gun $375
*set of four new tires $342

This isn't mentioning the liquor store, kids' activities, gas, hairdresser, class pictures, sports pictures, dance recital outfit and Hot Rod's new sneakers.

I think we could stand the money to help us get through June if Army of Dad isn't gainfully employed again by then.

    Our stimulus package was $7 less than we owed in Federal Taxes.

    Unc Sam pulled it out of one pocket and put it in the other.

    Still... Better than no rebate at all.

    Road Trip to SC to get the stuff Oz's grandmother left him = ~$400

    Fixing CJ's car to pass inspection = $334

    Registering CJ's car = $392

    Exterminator to spray for creepy crawlies = $210

    Oz's AP Testing fees = $98

    New windshield for the pick-up = $375

    And that's just the month of April.

    My stimulus check is paying what I owe in taxes. I have a low SSN, so I should see what's left of my stimulus in about two weeks. After they take out what I owe them.

    I figure, hey, why not let them pay for my taxes this year? It's not my money. *snicker*

    BTW, how're you doing with your ablation? You can email me privately if you want. It's been 16 months since mine, and I'm finally seeing some positive results. Either that or it's menopause. LOL I usually post as Momilies but so you can have my email addy I've used my blogger ID.
