yes, twice. No big deal really. It's a pita and a bit stressful but as long as you did'nt lie and are not a criminal it should be fine. You will most likely write a check before leaving. But the goal is to make it a small check. Good luck. Who prepared your taxes? [ Reply | More ]

You will know soon enough! Just start getting ready. If you don't want your relative to go to audit hire someone else. But, get a handle on what you do and do not have receipts for. I'd set aside 2 hours on Sat and 2 hours on Sun until it was done. You have about a month before audit, right? [ Reply | More ]

OK, that isn't huge problem a mistake is a mistake and you will pay what you should have paid when you filed. What you don't want to happen is for the IRS to think that you intentionally set out to commit fraud. That opens up a whole new can of worms and you so don't want to go there. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I finally got pregnant after trying for a long time (fertility treatments). Dh was never too much into it, it was never the most romantic relationship but he stuck with me. Lately he was acting weird, and one night he came back a bit drunk, told me he never really wanted the baby (we never thought it would work), wasn't happy, did it for me, etc. I was shocked, promised him I would try to make it work. I suspect that he has someone else, and maybe he's not telling me, he is pn his blackberry all the time, and one night I thought I saw makeup on his face, but he denied. I admit, I am not the most outgoing or social person and he used to be. Should I confront him? he is not into the pregnancy too much, I asked him if he would love the baby and he said he would, but it seems like he is going forward becasue he feels bad for me. 46 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

it sounds like you have a lot going on, and getting some help dealiing with it, talking it through, would be helpful (I mean outside of UB). Your NEED to have a child may be difficult for your dh to take, as his seeming uninteresteness is difficult for you. There are probably a lot of things he's thinking/worried about that you cant imagine at this point. Try to talk about it, if that doesn't work you need to get some help [ Reply | More ]

You're making him sound like a sociopath. But I'm guessing things were a little less clear while they were happening. Did you discuss the future while all this was going on?

Afetr he said he was not happy, I told him he could go out more - he did that, came back wasted, like I released him from a cage.

yes. The benefit of giving a breastmilk bottle first is that baby would finish all of that, and then a second bottle would have formula in case db wanted more.

[ - ] I HATE being a manager. When you are nice and complimentary, they get full of themselves and demand more and more and more. Even in this bad economy (I work in finacial services), I find my team acting like they are indispensible. ARGH. 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

so true. I took a huge pay cut & demotion for my current job but what I love about it is that I don't manage anyone anymore. I worry enough about making sure my family is happy & well cared for, I didn't want the stress of worrying about that crap for my team as well [ Reply | More ]

OK - but is it a normal side-effect of pregnancy, too, or is it just dehydration (something I never felt before...) [ Reply | More ]

nope. I guess that means I am just dehydrated? Seems so weird to be suddenly dehydrated. [ Reply | More ]

not weird. in the heat (and even in an office bldg) you need to drink a lot, and pregnancy will increase that [ Reply | More ]

thanks. it's the last part I was really wondering about. I keep drinking and it seems impossible for me to be dehydrated in my normal state but maybe being pregnant has changed that. [ Reply | More ]

yes, sounds dehydrated, being in an office building can dehydrate you cause of the a/c [ Reply | More ]

No such thing as a "variance" anymore. They are now called transfers and no, the fact that your nanny lives somewhere else isn't a reason a transfer is granted -anymore than if your electrician lived there. [ Reply | More ]

Actually they are called exception request forms. And yes because of child care you can go out of district it is an option on the form. But I suppose you must have a strong case and documentation. What that might be I have no idea. [ Reply | More ]

I was just thinking that. I don't think I have ever seen this before. And then I was trying to think of a bad neighborhood with a good school, but I couldn't think of one. So I came to the same conclusion you did and am stymied. [ Reply | More ]

She doesn't (she doesn't even need to be a she) but it is unusual for a nanny to live in a better neighborhood than her employer. [ Reply | More ]
