Ok...this just doesnt least not to me...lately.

The hub stopped to pick up our taxes today. Postponed it till the last minute because the preliminary word from our tax man was that we owed $1600. ouch. The primary reason for this is because my moms memorial and the inheritence she wanted the kids and grandkids to get was all out of her IRA. I told the hub that if he would pay the $285 tax preparer fee, I would come up with the $1600. *choke*

So, the hub picked up the taxes today and called to tell me that the tax guys estimate was off...ALOT.

We DO NOT have to pay $1600....rather, we are getting $1700 BACK....OMG. I am so excited. I have been taking care of everyones shortfalls that coming up with $1600 right now was TOUGH.

Now, I can breathe again.

Now to see how the hub wants to split the refund. We are keeping our finances separate...but there are several layers of financial issues that make a 50/50 split unfair...but I want to hear his perspective.

The fundraiser dinner tonight was AWESOME! very yummy meal and great company.

My lunch meeting was around raising money for childrens hospitals and pediatric wards. The next time you are in Rite Aid or Walmart and see the paper hot air balloons for $1 for kids/hospitals...that is what I am involved in. I adopted a local Walmart to be their cheerleader for raising money..I believe it is a national campaign next you just might be asked to help!!
