The Responsible Adult in me says "Pay down those credit cards!" or, "Put it in the savings account for that rainy day!". I tend to ignore that voice as much as I can. The Wild-Eyed Idealist is in love with the thought of dividing it up and donating it to Democratic candidates, with a note saying, "Courtesy of George Bush" attached to each.
But the voice that is winning out at this point is the I Really Need This Tool In My Arsenal and I've Figured Out How To Justify It. That is telling me I have to have a laptop computer and I simply cannot go on without one any longer, my gosh, how did I ever get by? What if I need to live blog something? I have to be able to download/upload pictures at the drop of a hat! And besides, I help the Michigan economy! Yeah, that's it!
Trained American consumer that I am.
Finally, a schedule has been posted-
The Internal Revenue Service started making the deposits at 8:30 a.m. EDT Monday with the goal of completing 800,000 direct deposits each day over the first three days of this week. No deposits will be made Thursday while the IRS prepares a big batch of 5 million direct deposits scheduled on Friday.
Maybe waiting this week will calm my itchy trigger finger and I'll do the "responsible" thing.
