The IRS ate my refund

April 25th, 2010 at 06:21 am

A comment from Jerry prompted me to get back to my blog (thanks, Jerry!).

And yes Jerry - you were right. We were under the impression that the IRS couldn't take our refund because our bankruptcy hadn't discharged...but state laws apparently allow all refunds to be applied to taxes that are owed. Well, it's good because now that means we owe less, but to be honest, the cash in the bank would have been handy right now!

DH has been having severe back issues. I think it's not helped by the inactivity. He'd normally be out golfing and moving around more, but he's concerned about going anywhere because he's afraid of spending money. I keep telling him that we'll be okay, but he just is in a funk. He had gone on another job interview and thought he had it, but never heard back from them.

I had great sales the last few weeks in my side business. It didn't bring in huge bucks for us, but it helps.

It was nice out yesterday and I worked on preparing the soil in my garden...my arms are sore! I turned it and raked by hand; we don't have a tiller. I thought about how nice it would be to have one...and then thought about the calories I was burning. The may flies were making themselves known. Anyone know any good way to keep them away?

We cooked burgers on the grill for dinner. Yummy! I ended up waking up early this morning, and have some other projects already going.

    you reminded me- I have not gotten my amended refund I am due. I mailed that in weeks ago. I wonder how long I should wait before hunting it down.

    And good luck on the job front!

    I only read this, so no experience. Keep flies away by dropping a penny into a plastic bag of water and hanging it near window openings or on your deck. It's something about the reflection.

    It could be a joke, but cheap enough to try, right?

    Sorry it worked out that way, but think of it as something that leads you to owe less in the long run, I guess, right? Hopefully DH will have some insurance that other interviews will come through soon... that always helps the mood and makes things feel more hopeful. Hang in there, huh?
