Here’s one for the (tax) books

I had my taxes done on Saturday. They were e-filed Saturday at around noon. I just got an email from my bank notifying me that my $224 Maryland State refund was just direct deposited into my checking account–less than one and a half business days after I got my taxes done! Now that’s some efficiency!

So you know what I did to celebrate? I went downstairs to Larry’s Cookies and got two huge cholocate chip cookies and two milks for $7.70. Why not splurge after an event as unusual as this?
