Procrastination.....

February 19th, 2010 at 11:26 am

sometimes works out in crazy ways. I've worked up our taxes, and we should be getting a smallish refund. I'm not sweating it because next year DD probably won't be able to be counted so we'll lose that on our taxes. Then, we'll probably break even. However, I often don't send it in til March. Yesterday, a horrible event happened in Texas. A man flew a plane into an IRS building in Austin. The mess looked horrible on television, not to mention those poor people inside. My taxes go to Austin. I wondered if that was the building. Can you imagine all the people that have sent their information in only to have it burn up in that disaster? I suppose that procrastinating once again on the tax return might have helped me not to have to restore the paperwork. But, I feel the most for those people and families involved. It is so tragic.

I went to the grocery store for the first time in two weeks yesterday. I had been out of town babysitting DGD for a week, then eating out of our freezer. There, I ate food I brought with me for breakfasts and their food they left for us for lunch and dinner. So far this month, we've only spent about 150 total for groceries. Got a couple more things to get, but I think we can finish more out of the freezer. That total doesn't cover toiletries and paper goods. With coupons and savings, I added a bit to the February total.

Today is baking cookies day, but I haven't gotten started. In the spirit of finally getting some sun and a couple of days of warmish weather, I've been sort of spring cleaning in the book boxes. It's driving the kitty nuts because the books are stored in her room. All this moving stuff around in there is messing with her day. I'm procrastinating there, too. I'm supposed to be priming kitchen cabinets......

    Interesting to think about - how'd people know if their info was burned up?

    Wow, I didn't even think of that. No one on any blogs or tv stations have said anything about that!

    Always keep a copy if filing on paper! I guess I should get mine done today.

    Some tax preparers had wondered the same thing - just saw a discussion on this.

    IRS Statement:

    "In light of the recent Austin tragedy, the IRS wants to reassure Americans that this incident will not affect filing season activities, including tax return processing.

    The IRS does not process tax returns or issue refunds at the Echelon 1 Building at 9430 Research Blvd., in Austin, Texas.

    During this time, our dedicated workforce continues the work of the IRS, which includes helping taxpayers, processing tax returns and issuing refunds as quickly as possible.
