So last month I get a notice that someone has visited my page and left their name. Of course, when you log you can't see their name unless you upgrade to "gold" membership. But there was a 7 day free trial. You know, those free trials where they take your credit card number because they know that you'll forget and they'll get some money out of you.

So of course despite my best intentions, I forgot. I just checked my credit card balance online which I rarely do, and caught it. Of course the membership fee is non-refundable and of course I promptly went to to see what I could do in order to avoid any more charges. I cancelled the automatic renewal that I had never authorized and deleted my credit card information. They had the wrong expiration date by a year anyway. My mistake.

I'm just pissed that I knew it was going to happen and did it anyway. I've learned my lesson.

Where's My Stimulus Payment?

There's a new link at the IRS website where you can check on the amount and date that you can expect to receive your money. Mine will be $600 deposited May 9th.

I upped my withholding for this year. Because I'll get a $2,000 credit for tuition I'll be getting a good bit back. I'd rather get it back over the year. I need it now. Next year I'll lower it.

I love that with the federal government you have access to so much employee information online. I was able to get a lot of detailed information on their Employee Express website.

I wonder if you receive a W-2 for Pinecone? Do you need to declare that maney as income? I've started to keep track of my checks just in case.

I got my first check from Pinecone. I always wanted to take part from all that I've read about the company through here, but never could sign up. But I clicked on an ad banner from Spark People and finally got started. I'm excited to have a little extra change and be able to get information on new products.
