Sometimes I have so much flying around in my head I don't even know where to start. I have been dealing with the IRS again and their back penalty and Interests of $96,000 they think I owe. (Giant gasps inserted at this point) This always makes me crazy when I try to work with them on this. I have been on the phone for three hours now with five different people and still have no answers. Of course my records along with my CPA show I shouldn't have to pay anything, but you try and tell the IRS that!
Still no marker on Mike's grave and it is coming up on two years now. Makes me feel like a real schmuck.
Oh, I am typing most of this during the times the IRS has me on hold. Get this, I need to send in a form 843 for abatement for each year I am requesting. The form has to know the exact amount requested but the IRS can't figure out how to tell me how much each year is for!!! And we agreed to turn over our health care to these people. Is this country NUTS!
On another note, my aunt that lives by me has been in the hospital for a few days now. She developed a rare syndrome called Guillain-Barre Syndrome after having pneumonia. They didn't catch it at first and I feel bad for not seeing her condition as serious as it was. I took her to the hospital the first time and they sent her home. Then I threw my back out picking up laundry of all things and couldn't help at all. I kind of feel bad about it, but there wasn't much I could do. I am feeling better now but I have my work cut out for me taking care of her when she is released in a month or so.
