YIKES!...Get ready for the whine!...We're gonna have to start pinching some more pennies!...And it's not gonna be fun either! We're already pinching our pennies so hard that Abraham Lincoln (whose profile is stamped on the penny) is screaming!! LOL
As I say usually when things like 'this' happen,...and I'll tell you what 'this' is in a minute...I'm glad I had some crocheting to distract me! And the fact that I finished another soft blue scarf yesterday let's you know just how much distraction I needed!! LOL...Whew! That scarf crocheted up fast!!! ^_^
The 'this' that happened was that we got...*gulp!*...a letter from the government saying that we were being assessed for an audit!!! O_O I had to check the envelope a couple of times, whine about it for a while, and then check the envelope again to make sure our letter hadn't been confused with Donald Trump's or Oprah's!! LOL
Really?!!!...An audit assessment?!!.....US?!!! O_0 ...How could that be?!! We are such nuts about making sure that we pay every little cent we owe, dotting our 'I's and crossing our 'T's at every move!!...As a matter of fact, hubby used to do our taxes, but a few years ago we decided that we needed to get professionals to do them, because of my online business and everything, and just in case some new tax laws popped up that might get by hubby...which there always are every year!...UGH!!
Sorry...just talking about it made me wanna distract myself with some crochet! ^_^ ... Anyway!...in the letter it said that we owed almost...*gulp!*...$2,000!!! And that it would have to be paid within the next month or so. They gave us a deadline!! O_O ♫ Dun dun Dun!! ♫ ...I whined about that.
That was the dreaded chore that I didn't want to do yesterday...I had to find out if this was a scam letter....I hoped! I hoped! LOL...or if there was some mistake on their part!...Nope! Apparently it wasn't a scam letter. :-( ...but, as we found out, apparently there was a mistake alright, but not on their part!...*shaking my head* :-/
Apparently a few years ago, when hubby was doing our taxes, he transposed some numbers on our tax form. Nobody caught it. We were sent a wonderful refund that, thinking back, we were so surprised to get that year. Surprised and HAPPY!!...and unquestioning!...which in retrospect was a mistake! O_O
But the good news is,...and yes, believe it or not, even though we were dealing with the government tax people, there was GOOD news! LOL...After a phone call, and a re-assessment of our assessment, they realized the mistake my hubby made, and we won't have to end up paying the $2,000!!! :-)
The bad news....and yes, you knew there was gonna be SOME kind of bad news, didn't you?! :-)) ...we're still gonna have to pay...*gulp!*...$600...It's not $2,000, but it's still gonna be penny pinching time in our house for a little while... :-( ...Sorry Abe...That's what we get for spending our BIG refund check before we checked to see if the refund should've been refunded!!...More whining.
And more distraction...but I'm gonna really be happy to have the distraction of my beloved crochet over the next little while...and I'll be doing a LOT of it too! I'm certainly not gonna be doing any shopping!... ;'_'; ..."Sorry yarn boxes. :-( ...I'll be back to visit you soon...but not right now."
Nope! Not gonna be shopping...Gonna be whining...and gonna be, hopefully, selling!...And gonna be listing some things right away in my Wuglyees shop, so I can be selling some things right away! LOL I wanna make the world some scarves.....At least $600 worth. ^_^ ...Anybody out there wanna buy a scarf?!...How about a headband?!
Okay...I'm off. My 'Tigger-iffic' friend is coming today, and I might just end up with some eatable peanut butter chocolate chip and coconut cookies by the time she leaves! :-) ...Hey! If I have to 'shell out the dough'...there's definitely gotta be some chocolate and peanut butter cookies, and some whining, in it for me somewhere!! LOL...Have a good day Everybody!!...And watch your 'P's and 'Q's....and dot your 'i's and cross your 't's too while you're at it!!...*gulp!*
And then again...it is Friday...'Virtual Date Night'!! And hubby's love is better than money in the bank. ♥
I'm cold. I'm hot. I'm helpless.
I don't want to eat that stuff!
Why does life have to be so tough?!
I'm lonely...tired of people,
Need to find something to do.
Why doesn't someone call or text,
or email me...But who?!
I'm whining all the time
about one thing and then another.
If I had a dime for all that whine...
I could be rich just on the weather!!
No, I'm not a little kid.
I am a full grown "Whiney Mama"!
And I can whine, and list and list,
comma after comma!
I don't like waiting. I am bored.
And I've got so much to do!
Did I encourage you to whine?!
Don't want to hear it...Mine is through!
