Now What's Up With Me

Okay so I realize I do not post a lot but what can I say I am not very good at it. Today is my birthday and I am in Phoenix to start training for the IRS. So I will be alone, that is from my family. Andrea's grand parents said to call them after training today and they want to take me to diner for my birthday. Being alone and away from family is so very hard for me because I love them all so very much. I do my best to make it look like I don't care about leaving but deep down it hurts. The thing that hurts the most is the fact that Adam turns 3 on Thursday. I realize he will not remember I was not there on his birthday but I will. The other thing I am not looking forward to is the fact that it looks like I may be out of town for training again on Alex's first birthday, come on now that is harsh.

Anyway I am in Phoenix and the weather is great. It is 60's and I am walking around without a jacket. My training does not start until 12:30 today so I have a little time. I am so excited to start but I want to know why I seem to get sick when I travel. My throat the past couple of days has started to hurt a little in the morning and my sinus is stuffed. Well lucky me I woke up with body aches, a small fever, sore throat, and stuffed sinuses. So I walked a couple of blocks to Walgreens and got some medicine. It is starting to kick in so I am feeling better. Anyway enough complaining. Until next blog.

Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday dear Kirk. Happy birthday to you.

Hey quick tax question for ya. No one seems to be able to tell us a straight answer. Can we claim Randi on our taxes since she has been our dependent for the past year? Her mom has not paid us any support. We are her temporary guardians. Just wondering.

Kirk said...

If you pay for more than half of her support than yes. She doesn't even have to live with you. The criteria is you support more than have of all her living expenses through the year, which you did. Enjoy the extra 1,000 child tax credit.

Wow that is scary that I knew that and the IRS has not even started training me on tax code.:)

We love and miss you, and we can just pretend Adam's birthday is on Saturday. I hope you get feeling better.

Happy Birthday buddy (sry I'm a day late.)

Happy Birthday Kirk! I'm sorry you aren't feeling good on your birthday. It must be going around because I've been in bed sick for the past 4 days. I hope your training goes well and you get home to your family soon. I'm sure Andrea and the boys miss you. Take care!
