Tax Time

I really need to go through the photos on my camera.  I had my baby shower this weekend and it was awesome!  But instead of sorting through those during the evening, I've been trying to get through our taxes.  I realized that we will be able to use medical deductions this year since we can easily meet the minimum requirement.  I did not organize all our medical receipts throughout the year like I have in the past, so things are moving quite slowly.  Travis had his hernia surgery and some dental work done.  Top that off with the fact that we can claim insurance premiums.  I had no idea!  Very exciting.  I prefer the years when we get a refund over the years we have to pay.  Blech.

Anywho, I hope to get to the photos sooner than later.  I would like to mention here how proud of Aiden I am when it comes to potty training.  He just jumped right into it, no problems.  He wears underwear all day now.  We put him in night time Pull-ups when he sleeps so he feels like a big kid and not a baby still wearing diapers. It's going GREAT.  I couldn't be more ecstatic.  I just hope there is no regression in this area when Mila is born!

YAY Aiden! I really don't think he will regress when Mila comes along. By the time she comes he will have 3 months of practice so I really don't think it will be an issue!

I had no idea you could deduct insurance premiums either...I will keep that in mind next year! We already did our taxes...next year will be completely different since we will be homeowners, I am just glad that our mortgage includes the insurance and taxes...don't think we are disciplined enough to put money aside to pay taxes at the end of the year! LOL

I hate tax time....hate it. Just feel like its a waste. Why can't we just be even at the end of the year!?!?! We finally hired someone. It was just getting too complicated with everything, plus we bought big items, like a car, a motorcycle...then there's the investments, the house, the daycare, UGH!!! I hate it!!

ME TOO. It took me three days to do our taxes this time. I feel like I've lost a portion of my life to that. Now we are WAY behind on things like dishes, and putting flea medicine on the cats and other daily items like that...
