Little bits of good news

April 2nd, 2013 at 07:04 am

I had two pieces of good financial news yesterday. I got a raise from my retirement fund #1 (I already retired from that job and I am getting a monthly payout). I'll get $18 more a month. That's certainly better than my raise at work was.

The other piece of good news is that I'm going to get a credit on my insurance, due to a processing error. I don't know how much yet. It will show up on the semi-annual statement.

I didn't spend anything yesterday.

I caught up on some work that was hanging over my head. I still have a lot to do -- I'll be glad to see the end of this week, but I'm making good progress.

Temps are still cold, but at least it's sunny and bright.

Yesterday I wore a pair of shoes that I bought while my ankle was healing. They served me well at the time, but it was clear yesterday that they will not be good walking shoes -- they hurt my heel. So they are going to have to go, now that I am so mobile, and I'm going to have to get a comfortable pair of black shoes that are neither boots nor sandals. Guess that's an errand to run this weekend.

This weekend I will also have to do my state taxes. I put it off, because according to Turbo Tax I will only owe $1 -- but I wasn't willing to pay $35 to Turbo Tax to do the work. So I'll get that done this weekend, and then on the 15th, I'll also send my federal payment in. The 15th is also my pay day, and the tax payment will take my whole paycheck. Nice to know I have backup!
