What Am I doing?
It’s been a fun week at the iHB household! I had my final continuing education before tax season, and learned all about the 1040 updates and law changes affecting individual taxpayers. Mostly, Obama is acting like Robin Hood, Congress can’t make up their mind, and we’re losing a bunch of good deductions. Kinda NOT looking forward to taxes, because as much as I try to explain that I am a client advocate, I end up getting blamed for any increase in taxes.
Our little man didn’t really do any more walking. I guess he decided that ten steps was enough, and he has places to go and things to chew on, so crawling is his current mode of transportation. I know he’s be sprinting soon, but we’ll cherish these moments before he starts running away from us in the mall at high speeds! We’ve also sold some more stuff and brought in some new furniture as part of our “Update our home for $0″ project. We’ll have some updates on this, but it’s up to Michelle to write these posts, so maybe people need to tell her you want to hear about it by harassing her on new brand new twitter account (@MrsWade2008) is her handle. LOLOL, let’s see if we can get her motivated to write this stuff down.
And finally, we’re starting up a new giveaway tomorrow, you won’t want to miss it. SRSLY!
