bring it on

So here is what happened yesterday. I was having a bad morning because I could not get on the Internet. Then Rusty called

Rusty: hey baby what are you up to?

Me: I am trying to get on the Internet and it is pissing me off

Rusty: Well your day is about to get worse. The IRS just froze our account

Me: what? you have got to be kidding me.

Rusty: no I am not kidding.

Me: O.k. I will call and find out what the hell is going on.

So I called the IRS. They were less then helpful. It turns out that they not only froze our account but also took about $1,000 out of it.

I worked for this military charity a few years ago and according to my pay stub they were taking out taxes. The charity never sent the money to the IRS. We contacted the charity and they said that the accountant that was working there is no longer working there, but that they would correct the situation. That was the last I heard about it until yesterday.

I still do not know why they froze everything. And the irs can't tell me why they froze everything.

I was pissed, but I am not anymore.

A good friend called me and I told her what happened and she just laughed and said  " you have 85 until next Wednesday? Hell I have seen you go a lot longer with a lot less!"

She was right. All of our bills are paid, and we have food. I have gone longer with a lot less, so why was I stressing out over it?

Now I am laughing! Bring it on IRS. You can't get me down!

Just for the record everything will be unfrozen in 21 days. Whatever! We will be fine so the IRS can kiss my ass.

CJ has been building a cat tree for me. This thing is going to be huge and I can't wait for it to be done. I just know that the big cats will be so happy.

Rusty got the stomach flu yesterday. He was just so kind to share all of his food with us.

Then Amber's boyfriend was driving Rusty's truck and some pressure hoses for the power steering burst. Sam was worried about it, but I just said well life happens.

This morning Rusty and CJ got the hoses fixed and Rusty is no longer barfing.

I am going to go work on my cat tree, and then when I done with that I am going to go act like live in Mayberry. I am going to go sit on the porch swing and sew.

My husband built a cat tree for us and they are so nice. It was tall and then had a little house hanging from it with a platform on top. Lots of different things for cats to do on it. oh and it was all covered in brown carpet. hope you cats have fun and the IRS turns you loose. My youngest daughter worked for the IRS for about five years but she didn't like to tell people where she worked. lol Paula

I love your attitude!!  I'm glad things are going to be working themselves out, but I hate the inconvenience for you.  Seems like there's always something, isn't there?  I'm glad Rusty is feeling better, too.

Oh that really sucks!  But you do have a great attitude about it.  It is just money after all.  You and your family will be ok.  No one got physically hurt!
Good luck with it all.

I have never heard of the IRS doing that.  I would be like going insane if they did that to me at any time.  But they used to audit my mother all the time because she was always pulling some fancy didoes to get out of paying taxes.  The IRS doe snot like that!  Gerry
