Make the rules up as I go...

Question the first: does anyone know where to find tax rules about exemptions? Specifically, I am hoping to find the criterion for taking the deduction for blindness...

Complaint the first... looks like we are getting significantly less money back on our taxes this year despite paying my tuition last year and paying loads of interest on the house, which we thought would help us out a bit come tax time.

Observation the first, I love having SETI on my computer, since I reinstalled it (for the first time in two years of NOT having it) I have completed seven data units and am on my eigghth. Thank god for the broadband connection.

Observation the second. I think I am getting a fever... bad juju going on with my face here all red and puffy feeling.

In other news, last night around 1:30am my husband and I were shocked to hear what sounded like an explosion followed by several sirens. Turned out that some person (proabably either drunk or asleep or both) hit a tree in our neighbor's yard and knocked the tree over crushing our neighbor's very large truck and taking out large portions of their privacy fence. Eeesh! There were police cars and fire trucks everywhere!

We grilled out today and I planted more iris bulbs in all sorts of grgeous colors.

Remind me sometime to tell you about my dinner conversation with my friend Tiffany on Friday...

Egads!! What a terrible way to be woken up! I've actually had that happen to me as well several years ago only I was home alone and cops were running through my yard with guns drawn!!

At least it wasn't your yard!! Thank heavens for small favors!!! Which house was it?!?!

We were awake...
We just missed it. The whole thing drove Daniel nuts he was practicaly pee pee dancing around the living room saying he wanted to see the carnage (until I restrained him :P)...

Anyway, it was the grey house on the corner of Stone River Court... you'll definitely see it. Tore their fence all to hell!

The IRS.
My roommate, who is an IRS employee, would like me to tell you that if you have any other tax questions, you're welcome to ask. And since you're a local call, we're also willing to give you our number...though not in this comment space. If you still need the help, drop me an email at illandaria@livejournal.com and I'll send you the numgber. :)
