Compulsive hoarding is a mental disorder that is just beginning to be understood. As a hoarder, I have acquired things over the years with a specific purpose in mind at the time of the acquisition, used some of those items for their intended purposes, forgotten the goal for different objects, but now that I find that they have outlived their purpose in my life I am struggling to rid myself of those same things.

Rejection-sometimes just what one needs!

I was so proud of myself for having gotten the taxes done over the weekend, but I fear my pride came in too soon. In today's mail was one more tax document that I needed. It doesn't change much. We'll be getting a whopping $2 more than we expected to get for a refund, but I was not looking forward to having to file an amended return.

I was on the phone with the IRS trying to figure out what I might need to do, when the gentleman asked me, if the IRS had already accepted our return. Well, the last I checked it had, but I decided to check again. They'd rejected it!! I'd accidentally transposed numbers on a Social Security number that I've known for years and don't even have to think about when I say it aloud. Very odd, since I'd double checked the return, but it worked to my advantage anyway.

I was able to correct that part of the return, put in the last little bit of tax information that I got in the mail today, and now I don't have to do an amended return. I'll take what I can get! :) to do more laundry and see what I can find to donate.

  1. Extra $2 is better than having to pay more .
    All the good stuff you are acomplishing is motivating me! About every 2 years I go through my closet and donate the stuff I don't wear or doesn't fit , looking at it I should do it more often ,a weekend project is looming.Thanks
