SIGH

 Daughter 4 checked... she knows she can't file taxes until mid Feb. But she was just wanting to know what she was going to pay in from doing door dash and instacart. She was figuring a couple hundred between state and fed and had that back.

She did NOT get the $600 stimulus  but what she did get..

was her paperwork for unemployment that did NOT take taxes out. EVEN though I saw what she marked when she filed for them to TAKE TAXES out. 

She freaked.... As between all of that she is almost owing $1K. Federal... she could not handle looking at State. 

I reminded her she was not behind on child support. Her ex just gives the money to the son as allowance. It's $20 a week. Like she was 2 yrs ago for 2 kids at $50 a week for EACH. She can make payments if needed as she can show she's off work due to cancer. CALM DOWN. We can pay it and tack it on her loan. CALM DOWN. 

Doesn't help she pulled a tendon  in her elbow to shoulder 


walking one of the dogs. They slid on ice, dog one way and her another. Her dogs are as big as mine.  

She's bored so a friend lent her a carpet cleaner to clean her furniture as she has all wood floors and no throw rugs(the dogs played tug of war with her throw rugs). Radiation is to start along with the chemo she is on this week for 3 wks... then rescan and possible surgery.. I remind her that the light is in that tunnel, faint but in the tunnel.

She's also upset because she can't help me spring clean and nether can Son 2. Her for medical and he is leaving for AT about the same time I have surgery.SO he is having to get a friend to cat sit as I can't get down to change the litter box (automatic but still needs dumped). The other 4 are too scared they might give me covid as they all deal with the public.   At this point I really don't want them in the home anyways. I don't think they wear their masks like they should and are in "friends and other family" homes without masks. In this state you are to wear a mask if you are NOT in your OWN home and guests are to wear them in YOUR home.

Masks suck... but I would rather have a mask on than get covid. My SIL who is 48 is still sick from it and it messed her lungs up real bad. They aren't sure where they picked it up as the whole family including Brother's in laws and the church got it. He is in and out of funerals, she is a preacher with her brother, their kids are working in businesses that are open. They hang out with family and friends that don't live with them without their masks. Lesson learned. I hope it doesn't cost her her life as she already has a pacemaker.

Back to work... another round of decluttering the east loft

  2. When a person has cancer, there are many resources available. Just ask about cancer resources. The only thing I got was a gift card for gas to make the trip to the cancer center. But, I did not need more. One thing they had, a breakfast at 7 am, was not anything I cared about. Plus, people were not interested in my cancer because it was stage 1 and did not need any treatment after surgery. It was disappointing to be treated that way, but it is their problem. See what kind of help she can get.

  3. It is easy to get freaked out when things are down. I feel so bad for her, she does not need one more thing to go wrong poor darling.

  4. I'm sorry.
    I'm glad your daughter has you all to help. Hopefully she will soon be cancer free!
    Hope your surgery goes ok, and that you have a quick recovery. If it were me, I wouldn't worry about spring cleaning, maybe plan on fall cleaning when you are healed.

    3. I would have to go to the 3 bishops and ask for them to be able to in a house with electric. PLUS they don't test for Covid or take vaccines so probably not. We had some paint the house when we moved in.
