I had a head full of things to empty out in a Freewheeling Friday post today, but they all emptied out prematurely when I got my mail yesterday. The only thing that has been on my mind since then is the letter I got from the IRS saying that I owe a little over $17,000 in taxes from 2009. Yikes! I don't know if it was the getting dizzy when I saw the fat envelope with the IRS return address or the fainting when I read the amount they said I owe, but one or the other pretty much cleared all other thoughts out of my head for a while.
Once I came to and actually read the letter I figured out that there was either an error on my 1099 or an error made by the CPA that prepared my tax return. It is all going to the CPA today, so hopefully it will get figured out soon. It will be a pain, but I feel confident that it will be resolved.
Even a big tax problem doesn't begin to compare to the horror being faced by the people in Alabama and other southern states after the recent tornadoes. My thoughts and prayers are with them.
I don't think I have gone quite as crazy over the royal wedding as some people, but I have enjoyed watching all the coverage from London, a city I loved visiting. When I was there a few years ago with my friend Patty, we walked from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace. It was a wonderful walk on a beautiful September day. We took lots of pictures along the way. This is the one that turned out to be our favorite.
