Monday Already?

I woke up this morning not knowing what day it was..... Yikes!
Doesn't seem like it should be Monday already.

I did have a productive weekend, My husband & son helped me finish taking down the back deck and all the fencing in that area. Now the horses have a nice big running around area BUT we also took down their tarps which they used for shelter when it rains/sun, the tarps were all torn and a mess looking. The horses have a shelter my husband had made out of wood for them but they very seldom use it but now that is all they have until I can get them a new tarp type thing.

We got the shut off notice for the cable/internet/phone again so not sure how many days I have left on the computer. I probably will not be able to get it back up and running again until we get our income tax refund. Since I ran out of ink a few weeks ago so it has been really hard to prepare for no computer - I would have liked to print out some things before it goes off but I will have to do with what we have.

Today's mission is to find a cheap place to do our taxes. We have gone to Jackson's Hewitt in the past and they charge us $359.00 - I want to find some place cheaper! I called around to all the tax places but no one can give you a price over the phone they need to look it over. I have heard H & R Block may be less so Kelly & I are shooting over there this morning. Our taxes are a little tricky because I am self employed and need to list my dog business otherwize I would try and do them myself.

I heard back from the library again..... the head of the children's dept. heard about my e-mail and wanted to set up a meeting with me and any other homeschool family interested to see if she could buy any books we might need. I guess they can spend money on buying books but can't spend on the inter-library charges of sending a books from one library to another. I sent her the list I posted about earlier and we will see what she can get but most likely it will take too long for us to use them anyway.

I was wondering if anyone has used Galloping the Globe?
I know it is more for the younger kids but I thought it looks like it is a fun way to learn about the other countries.
Hope everyone has a wonderful day today!!!!!!

Have you tried the Voluntary Income Tax Assistance program? I'm not positive they'll help with the schedule C though. When I did it in college we were pretty flexible about who we helped, probably depends on who is running it. The link has an 800 number you can call and ask. http://www.irs.gov/individuals/article/0,,id=107626,00.html
