I received a letter in the mail a few weeks ago. In it, it states my taxes are being audited in 2011 for the childcare portion. Just that portion. I thought it was weird I was pinpointed. I don’t make that much money, I didn’t think there was anything on there that would be a red flag, but apparently there was. I called the listed number to make sure I knew exactly what was needed from me to avoid any penalties, I reviewed my taxes from 2011 to make sure everything looked accurate (it did), and waited for the return call. They called back quickly, and the guy I spoke to was really nice about helping me. I asked him why I was picked. The reason? My total income and daycare costs are so close it was flagged because they find it surprising I could afford it. I told him I felt the exact same way.
Thanks to Tania, I was reminded how much I LOVE this song. Apparently, I am a romantic.
It is inevitable. Whenever I pack all the Christmas decorations and put them in the crawl space, I find 3 more things that need to be packed away. Please tell me this isn’t just me.
I have been doing good at changing how I eat, but holy cow I want a Scratch cupcake. I can just taste it. I recently heard there are between 1,200-1,800 calories per cupcake. I wish I never would have learned that fact. A McDonald’s quarter pounder with cheese and a large fry is also 1,200 calories, but at least that is a whole meal (of course, I would still rather have the cupcake).
I am one of those people who washes my hair every few days. Between washes, I use to throw it in a bun and hope it didn’t get too wet while I showered. Clare, from Save the Blowdry, changed that.
It’s not just any ol’ shower cap. It has a lining that is soft and completely protects my hair. Not to mention, it’s pretty cute.
Now, cross your fingers for me that there is no freezing rain so that I can head to my sister’s place for the weekend!
