$613, and it is waiting for me at the tax place in Crystal City, Missouri. I made arrangements to go down that way tomorrow afternoon, and then I will swing by the Missouri Central Bank (whatever the official name is), and cash it, give 4/5 of it to the moms (as I owe her $450+), and kind of pocket the rest.

So that was a relatively quick refund process. But I filed mine early, so I guess there was less of a delay.

I will stop by Schnucks on the way back and get a fair amount of groceries while I am out and about tomorrow, too (which I had planned to do anyway).

The temps have increased here, up to 54F now - breezy, sunny, nice.

back soon
