We did our taxes last Saturday. Our bankruptcy lawyer has explained he needs our 2007 taxes before he can file the bankruptcy. This is very frustrating, because it's been a month since we paid him, and we should have filed by now. It's not really his fault, though he is kind of old, and a little senile, it's mainly because we are self employed, something that apparently makes filing bankruptcy an even bigger bitch. Great. We didn't really mind doing our taxes so soon, because as it turned out our senile lawyer might be able to save the return we were expecting. Yay! That's a good thing because we forgoed paying most of our bills last month in order to pay the stupid bankruptcy.
Uh-oh, our senile old tax lady underestimated how much we should have paid in our estimated payment last year, and now we owe. We owe in the ball park of $4,000.
We owe, we owe, so it's off to bankruptcy court we go, fa la la la, we owe, we owe.... Yea you get the picture.
On a much lighter note, the Strike Is Over! Praise the good lord of pop culture! The coolest part, not only will all of my favorite shows finish out the season, but the writers got what they wanted! Everybody wins. Especially the viewers.
I got to interview Renee Sloan, Scott Baio's wife, on Friday. That was a blast! She was a total sweetheart. Of course my stupid recorder wasn't working so ended having to take notes on everything she said. Heaven forbid anything actually go smoothly...You can see my interview along with my recaps of the Scott Baio show at The Shack. (realityshack.com)
We went to a birthday party today for one of Patrick's little buddies from school. It was so much fun. I can't believe my little guy has buddies, and birthday parties to go to. I can't believe he's going to be 5 next month! We have not decided what to do yet, but I really want to make it special, since it will be his first birthday party inviting classmates.
