I've read horror stories about it taking up to 7 months for some people who took the new homebuyer credit to get their returns, because there's a lot of fraud-checking to do, but the IRS sent me a letter saying that they adjusted my return because I hadn't taken a credit I was owed, so they were sending me more money(!), and Greg suggested I check to see if the return had deposited, and it had!
I saw people opining online that you should include things like copies of utility bills with your return to prove that you actually live in the house, but now that I got my return fairly quickly, I'm thinking that what you should really do is follow the instructions on the form.
This weekend consisted of very little other than downtime and grocery shopping.
