So we made it through Christmas! My son had a great Christmas and has enjoyed all of his gifts and the season itself.
My husband and I got each other gift cards which is what we needed to be practical and helpful. My mom and sis got us diapers and other baby items for Christmas which is perfect because anything for the arrival of the baby in March in advance is highly appreciated and what we need to focus on right now. There will be plenty of years to spoil ourselves. This year and 2010 is all about getting ready for baby and getting the baby here and keep our heads above water financially.
This week we will enjoy the countdown to the new year and start preparing for tax season. This must be done ASAP as the baby is due March! (Right around Tax Season and nearing deadlines!) :-) Any money on the return this year will go to the Hospital bill!!!! We are trying to plan ahead as much as possible so we can have a smooth start being a family of 4 (5 if you include our first child "phoebe" our pet poodle!) :-)
Happy New Year!
Start preparing for Tax Season now! Get those final donations in. Get ahead with ItsDeductible. Start sorting those receipts into categories. Best Wishes for a great Tax Season!
