Shots, Taxes and Grades

Wednesday I shall take P to get her 3 shots. I told her she needs to get 3 shots, and she said 'OK'. I then asked her who should take her, and she chose yours truely.

I got my taxes done yesterday, and the all-knowing military tax volunteer told me that I did't qualify for the earned income credit this year. When I asked her why, she told me it was because I live overseas and not married to a military member (I have qualified EVERY year since I had P~I AM a Broke Single Parent). After she completed all the forms and told me how much plasma tv money I would get back, I went back to my office and called the IRS to get clarification. Agent number 56481-3873 (?) was very nice and had me on hold a few times, while she read blogs 'researched' my question (when was the last time the IRS updated their hold music? I almost fell asleep).

For all you in Blogland that work for Uncle LeRoy on an overseas military installation, and are a BSP...You QUALIFY for the EIC. You don't need to have a victim be married to someone in the military. If you work on a military installation outside the US, in the eyes of Uncle LeRoy, you are 'in the states' (I still ain't paying state taxes!). Since my return is currently being processed, it will have to be corrected manually, which means I'll get my extra $300 (enough to buy food for a month for the eating machine) just in time for next year's tax season. Due to the impending promotion, I already know I won't qualify next year, so, give me all my fundage now!!!

I got my grades for the 2 classes I took last term. For the yadda, yadda, yadda class (in which I was lost and watched DVDs on the laptop) I got a B, and in the class I trekked to Heidelberg for on the weekend, I got an A. The GPA continues to survive...
