MS Walk, tax dry run, blah blah blah...

Got the info on the MS Challenge Walk in the mail last night... read it over today and although I am excited to finally be able to do something I am a bit discouraged to find out that anyone that walks would need to raise $1,500... meaning for me and Craig to be able to walk we would need to raise $3,000... which I can't see being easy with me working at a small company (4 people including me) and him being out of work. I can see that being a bit of an obstacle, not to mention that having friends and family to walk with will not be as easy as originally thought (since each person needs to raise $1500). Still haven't brought this up to my dad and stepmom yet, but plan to next time I am up in Gloucester... I am curious what they will think about it... and if my stepmom will want to walk.

Did a dry run of our taxes today (still awaiting a couple more forms) and doesn't look like we will be getting back as much as I expected, which totally sucks. I need to wait until everything comes in and do it on TurboTax to know for sure, but I am confident that I did it right, unfortunately.

Not as much of a tax refund as expected + Craig out of work + no March bonus for Craig that he was eligible for at work = stinky... I expected us to be way ahead of where we will be in March in terms of savings.

2 weeks from today = Vegas here we come! I need this vacation!!!!!!!!

Hey! Are you going to be back in time for Sharon's craft day?

Oh man - I did not know that each walker had to raise $1500. I'm in the same boat as you! I can't even find people to come to a Pampered Chef party at my house and spend $50!. Keep me posted - you know I would sponser you.

Vegas, baby, Vegas!

It stinks you won't be able to have as many people walk with you, but there is a lot of time between now and the walk to raise money and I will sponsor you!
