Status Update

Taxes are done! Check! A whole month early too...

The house is looking good on a consistent basis and my best friend is coming to town! Its almost my birthday and my husband has been able to keep a secret up till now. What am I doing on my birthday?...I don't know.

Now usually, I am pretty good about getting taxes done in an non-last-minute sort of style. I have had them done as early as Valentine's Day before. Last year, however, was not my shining moment of togetherness. In March, my sister got married, then I had finals, then I started packing for our early April move. I couldn't find all my tax documents out of the boxes in time so I filed an extension. Last minute again, in June, I finally did my taxes, e-filed them and waited patiently for the direct deposit to post to my account. I got a strange check in the mail a couple weeks later that was not for the same amount as my refund from a bank I had never heard of and had one of those weird disclaimers attached to it like if you cash this check you are certifying this loan. I burned the check. Two months later and no refund yet, I called the IRS. Turns out one of the routing numbers was wrong and the check I burned was my refund. To get it reissued, we had to have a form notarized and by November, I finally had my tax check.

Now this year, hopefully we can avoid all the fuss and get it right the first time, which I will be attempting tonight. I really hate doing taxes...

Catch Up

I finally got a chance to get online and catch up on a bunch of stuff, bills, correspondence, my business, email, reading how everyone is doing. I am in an accounting class which is thoroughly kicking my butt, probably because I want to learn it as well as possible because this is what I want to be when I grow up...I think. So pretty much I go online to do my postings and spend the rest of the day split into three persons which attempt to keep up with the rest of my life. I dreamed last night that while I slept, two of me got was cleaning my house, and the other was doing my homework. I was rudely awakened by Brandi, telling me that it was 6.45 and we needed to go to the doctor. She found it very funny when they said they could squeeze me in at 7.45 and I asked "A.M?" with horror. I am very much looking forward to my April vacation, it couldn't come soon enough.
