Windfalls All Over the Place

December 16th, 2004 at 02:40 am

What a nice time of year for little things to be happenening. In the past few days I feel like we've been very blessed with extra cash. First Dad gave me $250 to spend "on myself", then I caught Xander playing with a card from Dean's aunt that happened to have $50 in it- I still don't know where that card came from, I got my phone bill with a $102 credit on it and the Royal bank credited us $80 for erroneous fees. Wow! That's almost $500 in about 24 hours. I'm feeling overwhelmed. I don't know what to do with it. Our Visa bill is paid except for the computer that I bought for Greg. He gave me a cheque postdated for the 17th to pay for that, so it's pretty much taken care of. I will have about $100 on the Sears card for Zach's Christmas present due on the 13 of January, but other than that, there is nothing else.
I guess I'll just transfer the bulk of it into the ING account and sit on it for a while. We are looking at buying a very expensive treadmill in the next couple of weeks. I guess this money could easily go toward that. The store currently has 6 months no interest or payment financing, so depending on whether there are charges to take advantage of that, we could just save the money and let it grow until the payment comes due in June.
What a blessing. I'm really excited and grateful right now.
