Windfall Woman

Life and times of an older Brittany Murphy look-a-like still working as a sales executive after experiencing a life changing windfall a year or so ago

Peace

Where to start? How about with a little good news? My aunt and uncle seem to be doing a bit better over my cousin's suicide. It's been rough going for them, but they seem to be making peace with it. I'm glad. I was so worried for my uncle in particular.

How about a little not so good news? My CPA made a mistake on my income taxes. THREE letters from the IRS. It stinks. I'm mad at him. I had to write a check which just goes to show you that my paranoia about the windfall is accurate. You ain't safe ever.........no matter how much money you got!

We just had layoffs at my company. I want to know how all these managers in high paying jobs manage when they are cutting the worker bees? And how MANY people should a manager manage? LOL.......

My mom's car and mine are all fixed. She's having some health problems now. She is having surgery next week. More of the not so good news. This health thing has given her a license to call me three times a day. And....she's screwed up her financial situation pretty bad. I am helping her out but she's not the kind of person you can give much money to or.....well, bless her heart......she's not so good financially. I had her all set up with a great financial person, and suffice it to say, she was influenced by an outsider and undid everything I had done! She just wants someone to handle it all for her, and unfortunately, these days, you can't do that. There's no "forgetting" it. You have to maintain an active role or you'll be robbed.

I've been watching reruns of Medium. I want my bed back. I don't care if it looks like a garden bench from The Home Depot or not. I like that rustic bed. I'll write about it when it comes again. Don't you know my interior designer is going to freak out when I tell her I want it again????

WFW: well, as I said before - suicide is selfish. The "left-behinders" do all the suffering. Real sorry for your family. Also sorry about your momma. Also sorry she won't take your advice. Also sorry about your dumb CPA and having to send a check to the IRS. Also sorry about the folks getting a pink slip (you don't expect the bigwigs to give themselves one do you?) Happy you got yo and yo momma's car fixed. Now as I look back the tally is 5 sorrys and 1 happy. Heck I do better than that so let me give you five more happys (happy,happy,happy,happy, and happy). Now I hope it is all better. I won't blame you if you delete this mess so other folks don't have to read it. Old Baldy

My thoughts and prayers are with you.
I think the CPA should write the check..I mean we pay these people, when they screw up they should pay for it.. Another blogger is dealing with the same thing.
It's a shame your Mom didn't take your advice..You are a very good daughter..
I hope the surgery goes well for your Mom and that she makes a speedy recovery..
Have a wonderful day!

Check the fine print with your CPA. They should have insurance to cover them if they make a mistake on your behalf - especially if you have given them all the right info.
