I just closed a deal on 1430 Leadville in Boise, Idaho.  This deal was interesting for several reasons. The buyers daughter called me from an internet website.  She was looking for a home for her parents to buy as an … Continue reading

Tax Time…. TGF Turbotax

To busy doing taxes so here is stuff on the taxes from my facebook page:


I go in to the valley of darkness… I will work on my taxes…. I will put numbers into turbotax and it will spit out what I get back or pay…. I am pretty sure I get the money back….I am cross… The black cloud of taxes settle on me…I fear no evil because turbotax is with me…


‎12 hours later and still working on taxes…. 1 business, 4 rentals, salary and kids in college and it is very confusing…. I accidentally deleted one of my rental houses….I need the info from my broker (which he gave me and I cant find) plus one of the rentals tax forms….I am also suffering because my purse was stolen and my accounts were changed……
Woke up energetic…..Made some real progress…. Found some unexpected money in the form of checks….. I thought it was being reinvested…. I think I want all checks to be direct deposited… I also think I will again pay no federal taxes….Seems strange that when I crunch the numbers I pay no taxes……Still waiting for Charles Scwhab…. Annoying people wont get me my 1099 until Wed…. I walk through the valley of taxes I will fear no evil for I have Turbotax….

Wow! I have been married for 27 years!!!!

Wow it is hard to believe that I have been married 27 years and am now the mother of 3 grown children and solidly middle aged.  Who knew what the adventure would entail when a first year chemistry and first year math graduate student promised to spend rest of their lives together.  Our parents  proberly were thinking we were way to young….(I was 22)…  We started having the kids in grad school.  He has a PH.D I have an MA.  Our adventures took us to Post doc in Mons, Belgium with 2 babies…. England for sabbatical with 3 kids….

I think I have changed more then he has.  I was going to be a scientist and work and take care of our kids…. I soon found out that I am not superwoman….  I took care of the kids and he became a math professor at Boise State University.  Our son’s our men to be proud of… One is a political strategist who is going to china next year to teach English.  The next just graduated from Churchill college at Cambridge in England and is going to start a pH.D. program at my Alma Marta, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (in math just like dad).  The youngest is about to start a math/physics degree at The College of Idaho.  I didn’t become a great scientist but we did great work with the kids…

My husband even put up with a run for Congress.  He didn’t think I could make the run but I did it with my head held high.

We have been together though the deaths of my mother and his father.  Through his broken arm and my mastectomy.  A son getting sick at college…

To tell you the truth, I would happily recite those vows I took 27 years ago…  Randall I would happily do it again and am wondering what the future will bring us.  I am sure we will always be together.
