I always say shopping is cheaper than a psychiatrist. Tammy Faye Bakker


I woke up excited to go check my online banking, because I was told our tax return would be deposited by the 23rd. Oh it was there, but once again they messed something up. They failed to include the first time homebuyer tax credit!

First, we sent it mid January. Then when I called the IRS the end of Feb. to see why we didn't get it yet, they said that there was no record of our papers, so I sent them ALL again priority mail.

Thankfully, they did receive them this time, but overlooked the Form 5405 and HUD papers, for the first time homebuyers credit. I called this morning to see why we only got our tax return and not the FTH credit. He said, "We have no record of you sending it." I'm like What!?! You got all my other papers obviously, and they were with it, so you did to get it.

He said there's nothing he can do other than advise me to send them again with an amended form and it could take up to 4 more months. I'm so upset. This is not fair! We had plans with that money :( If it's not one person screwing us over it's another. You can't trust anyone anymore. Oh well, at least we got some of our money.

After, hearing this, I had to give myself some retail therapy and boy did it feel good lol! I got Alaina 5 new summer dresses, 2 shirts, pair of capris, 4 pair of shoes and of course a doll :). Bella 3 summer dresses, 2 short outfits, a skirt and a new toy. There was this nice floor model stroller on sale for only $40, so I couldn't pass it up. Now the other one can stay at grandmas'. I also got myself a few workout tops and pants to.

Now I need to start getting Ethan's old room cleaned out, so we can get the girl's room done. I really wish we could put it in our room, but that's another long unfair story. :/

After about three hours of shopping, the girls were ready to call it a day and Ethan was coming for a sleepover. Of course when Alaina heard Ethan's voice, she said the heck with a nap and played with E.

When Matt came home, him and Ethan cut the grass together, while me and the girls played outside. Then we went to Eat N Park for dinner. Ethan told us this story about some little boy poking his sister, because she annoyed him and how pappy is crazy on his new tractor. I almost peed my pants from laughing so hard. He's one funny little boy so he is.

Ethan is obsessed with Ben 10. Ben 10 this and Ben 10 that. Well, there was a new Ben 10 show at 8pm today, and he made sure we were home for it, because he waited two weeks to watch it.

Ethan said, "When the sun is down, but not the whole way down is when we need to be back, because that means it's almost 8 and Ben 10 comes on at 8 Auntie A, and I want to watch it because I'm Ben 10's biggest fan." LOL!

Alaina fell asleep around 7:30pm from not taking her nap, so I went for a nice walk before it got too dark. Then Matt went to play hockey, while Ethan and I watched movies and cuddled. Other than the IRS messing things up, it turned out to be a pretty nice Friday. Take care and God Bless!

My dad told Ethan that his dog Lucky missed him, so E came up with the idea that we should take a pic of him and email it to pappy. Then pappy can show Lucky his picture and not miss him so much. What a sweetheart :) 4/23/10
