Free Cash

The government wasn't lying. We got our economic stimulus mooooolaaaaaahhhhh today. YAY! Straight to the minivan fund. How utterly exciting. But, hey, I'm not complaining. I *wish* I didn't need a minivan so I could something super fun, but I want/need a stinking van, so that's where the money will go.

Anyone have big plans for their free money?

I'm jealous, ours isn't coming until next week (why couldn't John's social end in a better number?). Anyway, we're buying a Joovy caboose stroller and a new diaper bag...then the rest gets saved. Kind of exciting, I guess...

We are getting no economic stimulus check, but if we were it too would go in the minivan fund, which is also where our tax refund check will be going. Sigh. Ah, the exciting life of a mom!

I am buying furniture for my new apartment. We need a couch,an entertainment center and a kitchen table (Maren's old one did not fit in the garage and was donated to Alice). I am excited. I should save it, but I'm not going to.

May I say-I am thrilled for all you moms and your minivans. Really-I love that my friends and family have such adorable children! It means I get to play with fun/cute kids on a regular basis.

We too don't get ours until next week, no fair,but its going to a gym membership and a trip to the midwest, and maybe Mike will use some of it for Mother's day or my birthday. :)

I think I'm going to have to join the minivan club.

By no means is this money "free." You have been paying taxes this whole time. I think it is silly to think this is going to fix the problems with our economy. In fact, I am pretty sure it won't even dent the problem. I know my money will be going into a savings account for when I have to pay 6 dollars for a gallon of gas and 7 for a gallon of milk. Are not you all outraged at the condition of your country? I sure am!

Alice, of course I am outraged, but what I am supposed to do? Not cash it??? If it makes you feel better, I am kind of leaning towards voting democratic this time around...

Alice said...

Do not let your father know that you are feel this way. Silly girl! Yeah, I will cash it too. I will take money!
