Prescription Anyone?


Image hosted by Photobucket.comI'm really ripped at Blogger. Come on - I can't even put a comment on someone elses blog...let alone get into my own. Typepad is looking better and better everyday. Even though it costs something, gee whiz - it seems to work all the time. In the year I've been reading blogs, it seems Typepad has been down a couple times. Blogger seems to be down a couple times a day. Well, I'll give it a little more time. I know they've been doing alot of server upgrades lately so hopefully they'll get the bugs worked out soon. Don't jump ship yet Sheri!

Oh vay - taxes due in a couple days. When we used to file that happy 1040 goodbuddy short-form, we had our taxes done in Januray, refund back shortly after that and said refund pissed away within a few days. I never could understand what the big hoopla about April 15th was. Yee-gads now that we are self-employed... we are needing every single extra day we can to squeeze every last drop out of each penny before it gets sent to Uncle Sam. They practically give me a 3rd degree paper cut pulling the envelope out of my clenched fist at the post office. "It's ok m'aam....gently.....relax....we are only here to help you. Take deep breaths, let.me.help.you and DROP THE FUCKIN ENVELOPE IN THE SLOT NOW!" I fall backwards to the floor, gasping, sweating, thoughts swirling through my head, sobbing "Oh dear God, I have robbed Peter to pay Paul and he's not happy. My kneecaps! My kneecaps!! Don't break them!! I-I-I promise to try really, really h-h-hard next year to pay my quarterlys on t-t-time."

Self-employment isn't all it's cracked out to be. Like you, I used to love tax time, always got money BACK....until Lloyd became self employed. We mailed our taxes out yesterday, they have been done for a couple months, We need them early so we can do Dustin's FAFSA forms for financial aid, but they have been sitting in a dark corner until we could muster the courage to mail them out. YIKES! I HATE UNCLE SAM!

It's all in the deductions. Read the fine print and screw Sam out of as much as you can.
