    I mentioned previously in my blog that I had been burnt loaning money, and one of the people who I had known for years owed me 4k that I had loaned her over 7 plus years ago. I really needed the money. We had an additional 10k to pay to the IRS that we were not expecting because we earned to much. We lost the deduction for the son's college of over 30k and also the child tax credit for the 17yr and 20 year old.Our only write off was mortgage interest. My friend received an inheritance and sent me ...

    I can't believe the month has went by so fast. I had a good trip to Ohio and was able to check on homes and relatives. It was around 70's and raining while I was there. I really hated coming back to 100 degree temps. My house is pretty well done except the DH is attempting to put a pergo type flooring in the bedroom. The floor tiling was the big thing and we were able to find a close match on sale. The person laying it had trouble telling the old from the new. My aunt lives out by the Coshocton ...
