    About to pay the taxes

    Hey everyone. Soooo... First day at work last year, I was laid off before I even walked in the door. Fine by me! Just cut me that check and I'll be on my merry way, goodbye to that caustic relationship! I had two job interviews lined up. First one was a disaster; at the end they asked, do you have any questions for us? I bit my tongue as I mumbled, yeah... where's the exit? Second one, same company, went very well, nailed it. I received severance for 3.5 months, and was unemployed for one month. Dates are approximate. While doing taxes last year I ran a look-ahead estimate for taxes we would owe. We saved up etc. and are about to pay. Here's the sad irony. We'll be paying $1114, and we have saved up $1115.84!! So, we will have remaining in that account, $1.84. LOL!! So yeah I am feeling ever so slightly ambivalent right about now. That's ok. We pay the bill, then we just keep earning. Less than two years to go now, then onward and upward (North by Northwest most likely, know what I mean?) Aright, I'm out.

      What's the saying... the more you earn, the more you pay? Or what that, the cost of living is always the same; all you've got.

        Speaking of taxes: I took advice (when I thought I could actually handle all this debt) and reduced the amount of taxes being withheld from my check. Now I owe $3,000 for Kansas and about that same for federal. OUCH. It seems I keep getting slammed every time I think I'm doing okay. Is there light at the end of this neverending tunnel?
