Only a few more weeks until we are all rich again from the PFD!!! What are you spending yours on this year?
From all the children I have sired up here that are supposedly mine, I am now up to a whopping $5500 this year in free money. If only our pesky governor didn't steal half of my hard earned money I'd be even richer !

I'm trying to invest it wisely. I'm torn between a down payment on a high interest loan for a new snowmachine, a two month long vacation trip to Hawaii, or a solid 6 month supply of booze and drugs. Decisions, decisions..... Trying to be responsible and make it last.

I totally forgot to register this year. For some reason I thought I'd already done this year's paperwork, but discovered after the deadline that I did not. Boo.

That is a bummer! I definitely did not forget, but I will blow and waste a portion of my PFD in your honor.

I already got mine spent because I used one of those deals that gives cash advances for the PFD. Got my teeth fixed -- or, I was gonna, but I bought other **** instead. For once I got ahead of the PFD rush at the liquor store.

Ahhh...the pfd. Ours will be covering heating expenses this year more than likely. But we don't include it in our budget so...it'll possibly pay for a Christmas trip to anchorage.
Or, we can keep it in the bank for a rainy day.

A certain middle aged and in poor health someone checking out in front of me at the grocer yesterday sure could use it.

After emptying her pockets of coins-and only coins- to pay for a massive purchase of 4 caramel apples, she determined funds were lacking, left the apples with the checker and made a rapid exit.

Mine is earmarked for nothing in particular-except apples. Good ones though, without the candy coating.

Same here. The boiler is supposed to (finally!) get finished in a couple of weeks, so I'm going to have to fill up the whole stinkin' tank. I do not at all mind keeping the house heated w/the woodstove, but to be beholden to the darn thing so your home doesn't freeze up is a whole 'nother matter.

I threatened to YouTube it and finish it myself. lol

The wife has jury duty and is on a case that is supposed to last about 3 weeks. We'll use the dividends to make up for her lost wages.
