O! O, did we watch as our federal income refund became amount owed!
O! O, did we realize we were eating milk mold!
It was a banner year for the first year of filing jointly. Most of the problem was that the healthcare.gov website never allowed me to update my income from prior years so my subsidy was stuck at poverty levels. I, never being one to plan anything with any kind of intelligence, didn't squirrel away any of that money I was pretty sure I'd owe at the end of the year. Instead, I put all that money into squirrel traps and dreams of a big screen TV.
Fear not, friends. I will not own that big screen TV this year. I will not own a single more squirrel trap this year! I will save. I will buy good milk.
All that being said, now's a good time to buy some of my books.
Holy cow! Look!
Naturally, I want you to buy these books from an independent bookstore. Some place like BOOKPEOPLE.
But I realize that this is the internet and you may want other options.
