Lawsuits, taxes & The Conversation
Sounds like a lot of fun, huh? Not really! We went back to court to meet with the opposing attorney again this morning. Guess what we found out? The dude is just as STUPID as the HR department of The Gym & the administrative department of The Insurance Company & he ACCIDENTALLY sent in a judgment to garnish wages!! Why are we going through this? Seriously! He realized his mistake is is revoking the judgment today. We still have yet to hear from The Insurance Company, but have found out that one person who handled our HR issues at The Gym ended up getting fired because she lied about doing things when she hadn't (meaning, she said she sent in our paperwork when she didn't do anything but lie). What a freakin' mess.

Bill finished our taxes this morning (because we're slackers & wait until the very last minute to do anything). I think we're getting $65 back. I hear about people getting thousands of dollars back. I'm really wondering how that's happening. We could use some extra cash for sure! I was almost positive that we would get a bigger return this year with being able to claim Logan, the house & now being a one income family that drops us down a bracket, but I guess not!

And then...The Conversation. Bill "talked" to his mom on Sunday. I could go on forever about this, but I'll save everyone from poking their eyeballs out. Basically she said that they'll be here for Memorial Day weekend & that she wants to get this all put behind her. Bill told her that things are going to be the way they are, we are adults & not her children anymore & that's about it. I still have yet to hear from her (I'm not holding me breath for an apology-I just want a common understanding). So now the in-law visit countdown begins. T-minus 39 days.

Oh man Kristin. I just got caught up on your posts and it sounds like you have a load of c-r-a-p going on. I am sorry to hear about the damn lawsuit and hope that Memorial Day weekend can bring you some much deserved peace of mind.

About Cal eating the apple (your comment at my most recent post), I peel the apple and give the whole thing to him. He loves this. He still doesn't have molars and chokes on the peels. He doesn't get much actual apple, but enjoys the activity and I use the apple for two days. I am so cheap. I rinse it off, bag it and put it in the fridge for tomorrow. Anyway, hope this helps and maybe Logan would enjoy it!

Ugh @ the whole lawsuit BS. Hire some goons. ;)

The most I ever got back on my tax return over there was around $1500. I didn't do my own taxes tho so no clue how it was so high. I'd like to tell you I frivolously blew it on shoes but my ex took it and used it instead. Super guy.

As for your MiL? Dude my stomache knots up each and every time you mention her. See last sentence of paragraph #1. ;)

We didn't get tons back, but it was considerably more than $65. We have an accounting firm do our taxes, though, so I couldn't tell you why. I can tell you that we get more back with them doing it than when we did it ourselves!

Hang in there with the lawsuit. It sounds like maybe that girl getting fired will be in your best interest, right?

I'll be thinking of you when your in laws visit. I have been doing a fine job of avoiding visits, but the semester is over and am all out of excuses not to visit. In fact, I believe I will be seeing them lots over the next few months. Ugh.

Glad the girl got fired, since I suppose she was the reason all the mess has gotten where it has today. We do our taxes online, we always get back a lot, but it all goes to credit cards, so we hardly see a penny of it!
