It's pouring...

March 10th, 2011 at 09:21 am

It's been 48 hours and still no word on the house. I understand the time difference makes things more difficult, but I do know the seller has had two full working days to see and consider the contract. I'm really starting to get frustrating.

And, as they say "when it rains, it pours."

It's pouring. I was sitting in the living room last night when I heard a terrible noise. The refrigerator fan has been humming very loudly (loud enough to be alarming), and although the freezer is cold, the refrigerator is warm. Great. After some investigation-- and a late-night pouring down rain trip to the store to buy ice so we can save all the milk and leftovers in a cooler-- we've determined it's likely the evaporator fan motor crapping out on us. Repair cost: $187. Yay. I could technically do it myself but the part with shipping would cost $100 and wouldn't get here until Monday.

The repair guy can do it tomorrow. Given how complicated and crazy life is right now, I've opted to hire the repair guy. I can't live for five more days with no fridge and two babies who drink a ton of milk.

So yes, more money out. Still no tax refund and the IRS status still says 1201 and delayed.

**update** I finally got the nerve to call the IRS about the refund. Turns out I forgot to record one of the estimated tax payments I had made. I had just started getting steady work last year, and thought I had made 2 payments, when really I had made three, so that apparently delayed the return because the computers have to transfer the data from my account to my hubby and me's joint account. So, that could have been worse!!***

I just wish a few things would be resolved around here. One way or the other. I hate it when everything is on hold.

    Well that's good IRS news (bigger refund?) unless they are delaying it too long.

    They said two more weeks. And yes, it is good news. I am relieved. It was a dumb mistake, I know, but with at the time a newborn, a toddler, and a new job, I guess it was as benign a mistake as you can make.
