MoBob worked today, otherwise we could've gone to Mt. Vernon since there's free admission for the holiday. Aw, shucks. Since I'm leaving on Saturday (!) I thought I'd pull together all our tax info to send off before my departure. There's a pile of W-2s, 1099s, and other inscrutable documents on the living room floor, and I still need to get some items from storage or from MB. And this is for a childless couple who rent.
Yesterday I went to a board meeting for PCAFD and I was invited to join. I'll have to think about it. I'm flattered though. I'd be the youngest member, and the only Fil-Am. Then met Mandy and her husband for Greek food after their day at the zoo. They looked great, and unchanged from the last time I saw them, in Morocco in 2002. I can't believe they have two adorable kids. I can't believe we're adults! They definitely convinced me to come with MB to Seattle, and perhaps swing by Salt Lake City?
Today I thought I'd get a lot done, but of course it didn't happen. I went with my friend M and her adorable twin girls to Trader Joe's and then to the park near the airport to enjoy the unusually balmy day. I came home with a headache for some reason, and so didn't get to crank through the to-list: go to the basement and dig out summer clothes for the Latin America trip, bake an apple pie, purge 2007 files, and pack for three weeks in cold, rainy Lyon. My head hurts even more just thinking about it.
Paul and I have to file singly for Federal but jointly for State. Ah the joys of domestic partner (State) bliss. We attended a workshop for folks like us. It was very humorous hearing some couples with very complicated pictures (real estate, kids, retirement planning) trying to understand how this DP registry is a good thing when it may jeopardize their previous advantages.
Gah. I was really impressed when Money magazine featured a lesbian couple with two kids in one of their articles. I like http://www.queercents.com/ though surprisingly they haven't posted anything about same sex tax situations yet.
