I just can not stress enough how anal I am being about our taxes this year. We had some friends over last night (more to come on that) and he was saying that since Scott works for the state, there is some meal allowance he gets. It would be like $800 if I figured it out right. Scott apparently ignored the email they sent about it. Now I am dying to find something out about it but I can’t find anything on the Internet. I even emailed them to try to get more info but I haven’t heard anything. And our W2s are still not here!
So we had another trooper and his girlfriend over last night. We are both from the same area and we both moved here when they got the job. We are about the same age too. We had a really nice visit. We ordered pizza and I had made brownies so we had brownie sundaes. She was so good with Emma and Emma loved her! She wanted to play her animal board game thingy with her the whole night and when it was Emma’s bed time, I gave Emma to her in the recliner and she held her down like a baby and rubbed her tummy and Emma was out like a light in about a minute. I was so impressed. I thought for sure Emma would not go to sleep until they left, but no. It was so nice for someone else to do it! I told her she needed to come over every night. We planned to go on a shopping trip together soon. We all had easy conversation. The funniest was when he was talking about Scott eating so fast in police academy. Apparently it was a running joke. I have said lots of times Scott inhales his food. He puts his head down and shovels. Seriously.
Mom and Dad are coming down tomorrow. I guess I’ll be home alone for the big football game on Sunday. You guys just don’t know how crazy people are being up in Charlotte. I work for a bank there and they are letting everyone where jerseys to work. It’s a bank, people, and they’re letting us where jerseys and jeans! Random gas stations have tables set up with all kinds of Panthers stuff for sale. People have flags and stickers on their cars. Well, you get the picture. Go Panthers!
