Saturday Morning Musings…

I ended up staying home and working on my taxes…that was VERY disturbing. I’m sure I’m not doing it right because by the time I gave up and went to bed, I owed $500 on the federal return and $50 on the Oklahoma return!!! I made $4,000 less this year than last year and I may have to pay back my unemployment compension!!! That’s the preliminary figures. I don’t have a couple of forms, so I’m sure once I receive the missing form and stop guessing at what to put in what box, I may not owe as much, but I’m convinced, I’ll get screwed…it’s always the little guy that gets knocked down when it comes to income taxes and the government.

So, I didn’t sleep well, I’m sick to my stomach this morning…all is not right with my world, but I’m trying to come to terms with it all and figure out how in the world to come up with the money to pay come April. This also means that any hope for a new hot water tank/heater is out of the question, as well as new tires for my car…I’ll just have to figure it all out. Of course, I had a good cry, wishing my dad were around to make me feel better about this income tax debaucle. He would have been so thrilled to take a look at it all and calm me down, tell me what I was doing wrong or what I had ommitted. To say the least, I miss my dad. I’ll figure it all out, it’s just difficult to think about it all right now.

Time for another cup of coffee and think about a nice breakfast…I’ve stepped away from the tax return stuff and will wait to get the proper forms and hear from a friend or two…

No point in ruining my entire weekend with what I can’t do much about!!!

Saturday is underway…
