I just spent an hour working on our taxes.(That sentence makes me feel old. Then I remember that I’m 28 and there is no denying it, I’m a real live grown up.) I’m a bit nervous because I have misplaced THREE tax documents.
As they come in the mail, I always put them aside until I’m ready to sit and do
our taxes, but 3 of those papers have just upped and moved on. All the rest are there, nicely stacked in their file folder like good little documents. I’m pretty sure I’ll find all three hiding under a bed throwing a party at the end of April. I’m not too concerned. One was my W2 but my boss gave me a copy of it. The other two were giving receipts. I can pretty much figure out what they were by digging through our bank statements for the year, but I know I NEED to have those documents on file. Again, since there are 3 missing and not just one, I’m sure they’ll turn up.
On that note. How does the dependent care credit work? This is the first year I’ve done taxes while paying child care. I didn’t get any tax documents from his preschool, should I have? I emailed his school to ask, but I feel so stupid. She’s probably like, “This girl is clueless. Her poor child.” Maybe when those others forms resurface in April, I’ll see that I actually did receive something. I honestly don’t think I did though. Ugh!
Jansen can consistently sing the entire alphabet without a single mistake. It blows my mind.
You need to spend some time every day this week reading Molly’s blog. I’m serious. She’s a special kind of person and this week of posts just magnifies her amazingness.
Well, read past this week too, because you really should read about her microdermabrasion post. It’s pee your pants funny.
WHAT THE HECK DO THEY PUT IN GIRL SCOUT COOKIES THAT MAKES IT IMPOSSIBLE TO MAKE A BOX LAST MORE THAN TWO DAYS?? It must be illegal. Stephen and I actually had a conversation the other day about the cost of Girl Scout cookies ($4/box!!!) and how if you buy them in bulk and eat them throughout the year, you aren’t ACTUALLY spending that much money. My coworker is the cookie mom of her daughter’s troop. I’m currently $24 into the cookie hole.
What are we going to do with our tax return? Buy cookies.
