tax refund, habitat, contraception

im so excited were getting a tax refund this year
dont think this has ever happened before
as i always try to keep our federal income tax withdrawals
so that we owe them money
they dont pay interest on the money of yours that they keep
but my accounts in van guard does

wow so this is what it feels like to get a refund
i excitedly open well i tore it open and there it
was a check for $3000+

then i got to thinking
if i had put that in my ira last year i  would have
made 5% on that money and made $150
but instead uncle sam had my money and probably
used it for something that i didnt agree with
maybe they used it to pay for contraception for
some needy person
that would have been ok with me
or put it on the national debt but
more than likely they just lent it to china
bet china had this money last year

last year since i was paid only for 4 months work i had tried
to figure out how much withdrawals to take to keep from
getting a refund this year
it was difficult to do because my long term disability is tax free
and i miscalculated

oh well it did feel good to get that check though
even if it cost be $150

probably be the last time i get to experience this again
guess ill just enjoy it

the roof and outside are all done except for some
2nd coating of the outside trim around the doors and
it sure looks good
will try to post a picture after i obtain the owners permission

the sheet rock is being done this week then well move inside
to do the painting cabinets doors flooring and molding
am looking forward to learning how to do the cuts for the
never could seem to get that done just right

feels good to be working on this house

yesterday i wrote about the attack on womens health and
thanks for the response

in my practice i also had patients who did not use contraception
for various reasons
some worried about the side effects of the pill the iud and the shots
some objected to using these methods for religious reasons

i always respected their beliefs and didnt try to influence their
decision on what to do but
tried to provide the best available information on what they
wanted to do

as a family physician your patients were always doing things
that you didnt agree with politically or religously or personally
i just tried to be there for help when it was needed

granted some of them had large families

  1. I can't believe we are fighting the contraception fight all over again. I was pleased to see today that Sen. Nina Turner of Ohio has introduced legislation to require doctors prescribing drugs for Viagra and such to give the patient a heart stress test and make a referral to a sex therapist for confirmation that "the patient's symptoms are not solely attributable to one or more psychological conditions." What's good for the goose is good for the gander in interference with our personal and private lives! Mad Woman
