The goodness of all of y'alls wishes for a better and happier New Year, have already begun!
I walked to the mailbox today and got the new tax book. A wave of fear washed over me as I walked back to the house. I was going to take a nap, but wanted to check the mail first. Now I wished I hadn't. I sucked it up and with shaking fingers opened it. I got out all the necessary paperwork and calculator and proceeded to figure out our doom. Hoping it wouldn't be worse than I thought.
Without having that last pay check stub for the year-to-date info, I had to do some guessing. With my vague guessing skills, my calculator said the government owed us just under $200. I couldn't believe it! I had to redo it, but this time I remembered the website for his paychecks. I got the real year-to-date and redid it. This time my calculator says we will be getting a return of $222!
I must tell you my dogs thought I was crazy, cause I was up out of my chair doing me a jig! It turned out to be painful, but well worth it! My excitement was contagious, we started playing and chasing and of course there was singing. I don't know what their song was, but mine was "Weeee don't. owe. the. gov. er. ment.".
After I started to calm a tad, I started calling everyone on my speed dial. I hardly ever get to call hubby with good news, usually our calls consist of "What time you think your going to get home?" or he calls me and says "I just left the yard, be home in 45 minutes". Super good news calls are rare, so I couldn't wait to spread the happy.
He answers the phone in a worn out voice.
I yell in my most excited high pitch voice "I have great news!"
His voice perks right up "oh, yeah what?"
Of course I tried to just say it, but came out in sing-song to the tune of "Nana nana boo boo", "weee don't owe the gov. er. ment."
He comes back with...Any dollars back is better than owing!
That's it? That's all you can say? Where are the YIPPIES or the YAHOOS?
Whatever! I'm too excited to be brought down!
This year is definately off to a great start!
