Finally did our taxes tonight, I've been putting it off, even though we're getting a refund.

I had to do them 3 times. One "dummy" federal for each of us, so that we could file a state return because our state won't recognize our marriage and we have to file as single people, these have to be mailed in.

Then I did the final joint return, and that could be e-filed.

Kind of a pain in the butt! Now it's done and I can move on with life.

I am extremely annoyed. A 5 day round trip flying on Allegiant Air to Vegas for niece's graduation costs more than 2 weeks in Mexico which would include hotel. Allegiant charges $30 for a carry on bag, and $50 for each checked bag, one way. And, as I just found out, their checked bag weight allowance is 40 lb, not 50 lb, which is standard. Our check in bag weighs 45 lb. I pack very minimally, and we have gifts to bring. I just went ahead and added the $30 for a carry on. They better not even TRY to charge me for my purse!

My 2 1/2-year-old is trying to kill me! She knocked me in the head with her head earlier, then hit me in the face with a thrown toy this afternoon, and just smashed me in the mouth with my phone. She didn't intend to hit me any of those times but that doesn't mean they hurt any less! Today seems dangerous.

I re-awakened my deep fryer last week. I made some fries to go with a dinner last week. I was planning to fry some potatoes tonight to go along with the pork souvlaki steaks I was going to grill. The darned thing would not work. Plugged it into different outlets, pressed the reset button, jiggled the cord. No dice. Dead as a doornail.

So I had to heat up the CI skillet with oil I ladled out of the fryer to cook up the potatoes.

I was planning fried chicken for Thursday night...

What PITA. I hope all goes well.

[QUOTE=taxlady;1348940]TTHM raises your risk for some diseases, but it's not like a microbe that would probably make you sick right away.


I know this is an old post, but I haven't read this thread for a while.

So you won't get sick right away. Instead you will sit there for days, wondering when it's going to hit!

I'm sorry. I don't mean to make a joke out of this, but after reading some of the other threads this morning, everything is funny to me.

I love this forum.
