i got a letter in the mail yesterday from the irs. it said we owe an additional $1800 on top of the $2600 we already paid. normally I wouldn't be so upset about it, but this whole debacle is because the marketplace cancelled our family insurance for 8 months before notifying us. when we finally got them to admit their mistake they opened up a special enrollment for us so we could have insurance for the remainder of the year.
so I decided to amend my return on turbotax, but it showed we owed even more than what the irs requested. so I then went back and did it by hand, using the numbers provided by turbotax as well as inserting the numbers that the new forms required. for whatever reason turbotax wouldn't fill those lines. now that I have done added all the info from all the various forms it's showing a refund of well over $2000. now I am royally confused.

today was a good day. belly didn't break down in tears from her migraine and my dad came home from yet another procedure on his tongue. at least now we know he's cancer free. all that's left is to get him healthy and healed enough for rehab and a few years of clean screening.
bran and I are going on a date sat. to listen to some live music. I'm stoked. it's been a few months since we had a night on the town. and other than watching rob's band play I haven't seen live music in Juneau in over a year. I plan to cut a rig it there's any room on the dance floor.

it was sunny today and I didn't have to devote the day to neglecting the kids and painting the house. although I did think about doing the eaves, but quickly dismissed it knowing that it would mean tiptoeing on the last run of the 16 foot ladder. the eaves just might wait until spring. I did get another coat on the exterior doors though. I think the front is done...5 coats later and the garage door needs one more coat and the laundry room door needs 2-3 more.
I really should suck it up and paint the eaves. it just might drive me crazy this winter that I didn't.

I'm starving of thirst.
I saw her loud and clear.
Polar beads instead of pearler beads.

I'm going to miss these gems as she gets older and more aware.

we are moving so slowly on home repairs this summer. I hope we get it all done in time before the weather changes. I am eager to get the house painted. maybe today I will get a chance to power wash it and get it ready for painting when we have a few days of clear skies. painting in a rainforest is quite precarious.

I am anxious. 6 o'clock can't come soon enough. I would feel better if I wasn't focused on trying to find the stupid camera battery. How the frack did I lose it 2 days before going on vacation. I am such a doofus sometimes.
Squiggles is still coughing and my nose is now running like a faucet. Yay for traveling while sick. On the plus side...I got the taxes filed, the pfds filed and all except 2 hotels are booked. Want to see how we like the hotel I San Jose before we book for the return and I'll book Bran's the day he needs it so no big deal. Still need to book the car rental and then I'll have planned and booked this trip more so than I have ever done when traveling with kids.

my nose is stopped up and running at the same time. how is that even possible?
can't wait for bran to come home so i can head back out to the glacier. hopefully the nothern lights haven't called it quits by then and i remember all my camera goodies so i can actually take some decent pictures.

Yesterday and today I lived completely in the moment and managed not to get mad once. not so much as an internal grumble.

A trip to the er slowed progress but we got most of the cabinets installed. Now to hook up the ice maker on the fridge and install the countertops we'll be halfway done. I hope we are able to get the kitchen at least sorta functioning tomorrow since bran goes out if town on tues for a few days and that will make for a long week without access to the kitchen. I think we're gonna have to switch roles tomorrow. I'll hang and he can work support.
I hope he's not in too much pain tomorrow. 6 stitches is a lot on a finger. Such a sweet man to keep working once we got home.
