I Heart The IRS

No really, for real, I honestly do.  Long story short, I goofed on our taxes and my math had us getting only about half of the refund for which we were eligible.  When our return arrived Friday, sure enough, it was for the correct amount.  The correct amount doubly corrected since once you removed my goof, we should have claimed a credit instead of a deduction...and they fixed that too.  Say what you will about the IRS, but around here, we are in relationship bliss.

So today's picture is the floor where my dining/craft/office room meets the hall.  This is where you would have found me, flat out on the ground, arm over my eyes trying to stave off an anxiety attack.  It was not that the payment appeared to be wrong, I am sure you can just mail them a check for the difference or whatever, it was the idea that I would have to do another round of bureaucracy.  Seriously, we have not had a single thing go smoothly since the move.  Nothing catastrophic, but one person can only do so much bureaucratic drudgery before it takes a toll.  The idea that I would have to fire that all up again damn near killed me.  Melodramatic? For sure.  Regardless, you can imagine my relief when Chris held up the calculator and said "maybe we should have accounted for_____."  Oh yeah, thank goddess someone realized that...
