I have this mantra that when I'm getting a refund, I file as soon as I get the W2. When I owe, I mail it on April 15. Federal was kind to us this year...Illinois stuck it to us so I'm mailing Illinois today. But at least this year we didn't have to file Federal, Illinois, Missouri AND Virginia. After next year we'll be down to just Federal and Illinois.

Roger is now the proud owner of an upright freezer courtesy of Craigs List. It was the best $50 we ever spent, especially the delight on his face as he can take advantage of frozen food sales without filling up the refrigerator freezer. It is in the basement utility room so no having to move this baby up 27 steps!
Michael is burning the evening and midnight oils with his thesis paper. The rough draft is due Thursday. He stayed until 3 this morning at SIU typing, was going to go home and sleep 2 hours and be back for his River to River Race training. The River to River Race is this Saturday. If my link doesn't highlight, click on the words River to River Race and you can learn about it. Michael is running in the 4th slot. This will be his 3rd and final year of running it. And you know Mom will be at the finish line to greet him!
Kelli is doing better. She was able to work yesterday. This abdominal virus apparently kicked her butt good. Bless her heart, she wanted to do the graduation invitations for me so she and Kiereney got them ready to mail over the weekend. Also, the man they hired to take her position turned the job down so they told Kelli they will need her "a couple of more months". At least she doesn't have to worry right now about finding a new job.
Off to work and get ready to watch Idol and Dancing with the Stars. And somehow I have to work in the new episode of Law and Order SUV. I'm in love with Elliott!
Keep Hallie, John and CJ in your thoughts and prayers.
Have a phenomenal day!
