So the second half of January sucked. Like being burglarized isn't enough, let's just add insult to injury in the form of locked down bank accounts and hundreds of dollars of late fees. None of which we can afford, in the most basic can't-get-blood-from-a-rock kind of way. We needed our tax returns ASAP, but Fran's work, H&R Block, and the IRS each contributed separately to create a delay that might result in our electricity and water getting shut off. FUN. For the past 5 years we've filed our taxes in a single day after getting our W2 forms midmonth in January, so of course when we actually NEED that money all hell breaks loose.
So February, LET'S GET ON WITH IT. Let the reconstructing begin.
