So I got a nice surprise at work yesterday to show I’m loved. I’m getting a bonus cheque for about $1500. Now normally I can have this applied directly to my RRSP account, but this year I’m not. Why? Because I’m getting the money at the end of March. Not so useful for a tax refund for the 2007 tax year.
To solve this little problem I just tapped our saving account and issued myself a RRSP loan for $1500. That way I get the tax back in a few months rather than next year. So I’m very happy about that.
Then to give a little love I gave my wife the best present of all for Valentine’s Day: me. I took off today so with Monday’s holiday (Family Day) we will now have a whole four days together. I just love extra long weekends! Please note this also means I won’t be doing a post for Monday.
To everyone who has the long weekend, enjoy yourself.
