top this for duh factor....

The other day, I received a letter from our Tax Assessment Department.  They have requested my receipts for medical & charitable giving for the past year.  So, no big deal...I go to where I put it & my Tax Return was not there.  I have nicely filed my husbands away, but mine???

Well, I have turned everything upside down & bass ackwards & I cannot find my return, much less the receipts which would have been attached to it!

I have no idea where it could have gotten too, it has seriously vanished.  Talk about brain fog, my word.  I still need to call the accountant but I am sure he doesn't have it anyway.  I recall taking the folder from his house along with my spouses.  I could have sent it out to recycle by error??? 

Anyway, I am going to have to buy some time with the Feds and get duplicate receipts of everything I can think of, this is going to be a pain in the ash!!!

I thought I was doing great & this only goes back to April, mind you I wasn't that great then.....apparently.

Is it wierd how your mind thinks you are doing so great & then something like this crops up & bites me.  I must have been in auto pilot at the time???




Here I sit, trying to say something supportive - this will work out, you will find your records, you don't need this or deserve it, I will come to visit you in prison, and so on. Keep looking. They are somewhere....

Or, as is the case in MY life, relax because they will only turn up once you don't need them any longer. If it's just the totals you need, the IRS will supply them for you. If you're looking for the physical receipts, that's a different thing.

Sounds like me, always and still: I am very good with other people's records, but when it comes to my own!  Tax returns are always left to the very lat minute because there is always something better to do.  I only once did mine two months before I needed to, but that was my second year after starting CAP, then back to old habits.  Saving grace, DW is just as bad.........Sarah

An Itinerary in Light and Shadow   Stratton/Wheldon regime since August 2003, for aggressive secondary progressive MS.  Intermittent therapy after one year. 2007 still take this two weeks every three months. Still slowly improving with no exacerbation since starting. EDSS was 7, now 2
Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

I am glad to see that I am not alone in being so very disorganised. Last year I got my tax return in before midnight on the very last day. Last week I just couldn't find my MOT certificate for my car, but thankfully living in the the country the village garage tested it without the previous certificate. I still have to find those documents to renew the car tax next February - I must have had them to do it this year...recycling has reared it's head for me too.

My excuse is that in the last year I have moved house, got married and then diagnosed with MS...and lost a cat into the bargain. Well, anything but face up to the presence of MS in my life.

Now, to change my passport details...

Rica, LOL.....I am so very happy you will come to see me in prison.  The "revenue agency" which originally began with the War Measures Act & was to be quickly abandoned not long after doesn't have much of a sense of humour.  I received the standard threat & I only have to the end of the month to cough up or they will "reassess" & bill me the extra tax on the $$ I spent & gave to Charity.

There is a little comfort in knowing I am not the only one.  I am pretty organized - Doug's is filed away nicely!!!

Ruth,  Several days ago I reported that Steve had put our blood pressure monitor in the "black hole" in our house.  Sunday he found it.  I bought a wig this past Winter.  At some point, I hung it on a tall bottle, set it on top of the BP monitor box, and draped a scarf over it.  Yes, it was me.  I'm a "putter" too.  That was the high point of his day, to out me as a fellow "putter."

Hi Ruth, Thought I would ask about your reciepts?  I am currently dealing all the piles of things I did not have the energy to deal with  over the past 3-4years.  I have boxes that I just boxed.  I now can say that I am making headway in producing several heavy duty black bags of paper stuff a week. Oh how disfunctional I was.   It is such a pleasure now to look at something, decide if I still want to keep it and toss it away.  I can read now and make little decisions in the moment.  Was it that bad???  Yes I guess yes.

My last mayor search was around auto insurance for car the was several hours away with my daughter finishing up her degree.  It finally turned up in a more current pile.  It was there for a reason and need to track a clerical follow through but I had lost track of it, not in the file cabinet.  I was on overwhelm.  This lack of energy and brain fog seems to be something that "normal" folks cannot even imagine.  Thanks for the new word to me, Fogled. I am adding it now to my vocabulary, so much easier that a descriptive sentence.

I have always been a manifestor, and from my continued reading, seems that is true for most of the folks who continue to hang out here.  Finding this webconnection is truely a result my desire to return to my wholeness, my inherent wellness. Thank you all for your sharing of hope, tough and soft.    Louise
