Over on the right side I've begun to update my blog list. I don't think I'm done, but I might have a small headache that prevents me from thinking clearly. :P
I went ahead and included the entire Maverick and Stash rings because I do read them everyday... if not two or three times a day. :) So if you're on the list, know that I read you, even if I don't happen to comment.
Nothing to show and tell this time... last night I decided to play around I get an idea what our tax refund was gonna be. I wasn't expecting it to be as big as last year's, but certainly a few hundred, no? Imagine my shock when I realized we OWED a hefty sum of money!!! I don't know exactly what happened, but somehow only $4 more was taken out for Federal taxes in 2005 compare to 2004. Well, that's not too bad... except that since my husband worked a full year in 2005, we had a 50% increase in the income.
I really wanna protest that it's unfair... every other deduction looks right on for his income. So why did the Federal witholdings get messed up? It's not my fault... *whine*... his check was right about what we expected. There was absolutely nothing that red-flagged us. But I know the IRS doesn't care. It's not their fault either.
Let me just say that I'm really glad I have a nice stash to work through, cuz I think it's gonna be around the middle of summer before I can safely buy fabric again. And I'm also glad I found out now... gives me a chance to save up for what's due. Definately tightwadding it until April 15th.
At least I'm still sewing. I spent a good hour at my machine today, working on the Star Struck pattern from Bonnie's site. Of course, as I was sewing my very last piece... I ran out of bobbin thread a quarter of an inch away from being finished. And of course all my wound up bobbins were empty. But it was nice letting myself think for a while that empty bobbins were my biggest problem. Quilting is the best! :)
