Today Wolf and I got some bad news: we owe on our taxes.
I can’t even express the amount of frustration and rage I feel right now. Every year we get money back which we’ve come to rely on. This year, however we owe $800 because of last year. Not anything we did (or didn’t do) but because of the stimulus package Obama (and $hrub) put forth. I’m really fucking pissed that the money we got last year fucked up our taxes for this year. Had I known that would happen I would sent the money back to Uncle $am.
Believe me when I say I went apeshit when Wolf told me. There was screaming and some crying. There was me saying “fuck the government. We’re not paying. They don’t need $800 from us to spend on a war or health care for senators and congresspersons but not me. Fuck them. Fuck them all to hell.”
The worst part is we have to seriously consider (again) finding Athena a new home. I can’t fathom having to do so but we spend so much money on her daycare it’s killing us financially. Over $200 a month goes to the petsitter and doggie daycare. We’re out of the house so much leaving her in the crate is just not humane. We could spend that money on our other bills which just seem to never, ever stop (nor do the phone calls) and be out of debt sooner (as in when we’re dead).
I did tell Wolf to never mind the CSA but he still wants to do it so I guess we’re going to.
The good news is Wolf paid off the car this weekend. That’s $100/month we can put toward something else. He says his surgery will be paid off in one or two more payments (another $100/month) then we can focus on my medical bills ($1500 about $25/month) and maybe pay off our vacation and the fucking greedy government.
(I don’t have a problem paying taxes but I do have a problem when they pretend to be helping us out one year just to fuck us the next. And I don’t want to be paying for the murder of human beings — ie the War — nor for government employees to get pissa health insurance while we have crappy insurance. Certainly I’ll pay for everyone to have access to good, quality health care but not for a select few.)
