Yay! April!

April 1st, 2018 at 08:36 am

I am so very glad it is April. I am considering this month an important turning stone in the year. I am determined to get back on track and rock the remaining 3/4 of the year.

*FORCED WAITING PERIOD*
So the IRS decided to notify me that they are reviewing my taxes. They should tell me in 60 days, but if I don't hear by then, I am supposed to "call the above number"... which gets me stuck in an automated round about system, never to get a person. Sigh. $8k is in limbo until who knows when.

*SO SICK*
End of February and most of March was rough. We were all very, very sick with stomach flu and then influenza type A. One kid had a hospital stay due to dehydration and reaction to Tamiflu. I lost about 1/3 of my take home pay due to unpaid time after blasting through the little PTO I had saved up.

*NOT SPENDING EVERYTHING!*
Despite that, kids' new shoes, new glasses, lots of random purchases, and eating out when at work, I managed to not spend every penny I made in the month. It was my first month tracking my spending in a long time, and I think I found my system. Back to my basic love.... Excel. I can't seem to track as I spend, but once a week I can double check my credit card (98% of my spending) and see where I stand. Quicken and other systems take too much maintenance for me.

*CATCH UP TIME*
So, now that I am kind of back on track with work and home things.... anyone have any ideas how to catch up on a month's worth of homework and papers? I am so far behind, it isn't funny. At this point, I am just hoping to pass, barely.

Happy Easter!

    Tamiflu is awful for children and honestly should never be prescribed and I honestly am disgusted by doctors who do not know the risks associated with this and other things given to children. Children have died from Tamiflu! So glad you are all feeling better. Take care and just do the best you can with that homework! Ask for an extension if the situation warrants it.

    Sorry about the IRS delay.

    Good job on tracking spending.

    Hope your little guy is much better.
