@robinhood: S.O.S.!


Today I discovered that, as it turns out, it's legal for our taxes to increase about $500 a month more than we're paying because someone in the settlement office mis-estimated last years taxes to begin with.
Thus, I find myself saying goodbye to my beautiful painting studio in Woodbury, and to luxuries like...... wait, the biggest luxury I purchase is coffee. And it's .70 at Donna's if you BYO mug. I haven't bought new clothes in almost a year, I have a phobia of salons so I don't pay to get my hair cut (What can I say? I find it awkward to have my head rubbed by a stranger), and we use the car so little that we only fill it up with gas every other month unless we go on a trip. So really... I will just have to MAKE more money. Unless Robin Hood reads this blog, and maybe could help a girl out? Or is he no longer taking that sort of action? Ah well.

The good news is, Crafty Bastards approaches - Our biggest & most favorite fair of the year- and I fully expect my friends in DC to help us out of this mess (by shopping, silly! Not by fixing taxes!!)

Oo-da-lally-golly-what-a-day.

Have you applied for the homestead credit? It cut our Balt City property taxes in half!!

yup - we did just reaffirm that we'd applied for that - but it doesn't kick in until this coming year (doesn't apply to 1st yr homebuyers).
