This year I will be smarter with our tax refund! I say this every year, and every year I make the same mistake.
- When I get a large check in our hand, I cannot resist but to go to the liquor store and fill up our entire bar, however then I go to the cannabis dispensary and stock up on our yellows, and after that usually the large check is about gone.
This year will be different, because the last few months have been so miserable. The Heating & Air Conditioning system was on the fritz at this time last year, but I already told you what happened to the tax refund I should have used to pay for repairs. The last numerous months have been miserable because the temps have been so cold outside, and our central heating is not laboring. The only thing I could afford to do to stave off freezing to death in our own lake house was buying a cheap space heater. It is barely strong enough for heating up 1 room, so I have to move it around with myself and others and sit it next to wherever I sit down. I was too embarrassed to invite people over all Winter long because I had no heating and our lake house never got above 60 degrees! By the time the refund check gets here the temps will be warmer, and I won’t be in such serious need of heating, so I worry I will squander the check again. I hope that I don’t waste it, because when summer time arrives I will need a laboring cooling system.
