I just got back from getting my hair cut at Supercuts. I just don’t see the point of going to some fancy salon and spending a lot more money. But then of course I pretty much have mine shaved, so probably anyone could do it.
Ivy has been acting very different lately. I mentioned that she comes to me more often to be petted. But she also now comes to the bed more in the evening when I’m watching TV back in the bedroom.
She “talks” to me and touches me with her paw more often.
I mentioned that she can’t stand for Charlie to be completely under a blanket. But then she gets under one herself and stays there for some time.
It’s kind of like she’s evolving in some way. Growing more sociable. I don’t know what suddenly caused this turn of events.
Maybe she’s become more of an adult and her personality is fully setting in.
I do like that she seems to want to be near me more. Before she mostly played by herself, perfectly content, in the evening and during the night.
Now she wants to be where I am, thus where Charlie is. Through the night I can hear him snap at her occasionally when she “invades” his space.
I think she’s on and off the bed through the night. She sure likes to play with those silly swirly toys during the night. She plays with them all day too. You’d think she’d lose weight chasing those things all over the apartment.
She’ll touch my back with her paw and meow at me. She’s meowing more too. This means she wants to be petted even if it’s 3 a.m.
I was trying yesterday to get my tax stuff together. I see that social security no longer sends out tax forms because it’s too expensive to mail them. So you have to get them online.
That’s all fine and good. But I went to get my social security card to check exactly how my name was written and it seems I’ve lost it.
I tried to call the SS number and it said look online. So I did but apparently didn’t put my name the way it’s written on the card (in other words I think I put my middle initial and it wouldn’t accept that) and when I tried to pull it up it locked me out because it said I wasn’t accurate.
So then just so I’d know what to do when that’s figured out I go to the site where you download the forms for tax purposes. Except there seemed to be no place for the self-employed to download a form. It was all employer-related.
I read over it and over it. It applied to people who receive SS for children and guardians and employers from what I could tell.
Oh, I just hate complications like this! Please, please I surely don’t want to go into the mass of chaos that is the social security office here. So I sure hope I can get things figured out without having to do that.
I want to get my taxes done and this is the only thing holding me up. It’s the first year I’ve reckoned with this. Maybe next year will be easier.
What on earth has happened to my social security card? I’ve never misplaced or lost it before.
Try to do one thing and that leads to another glitch to deal with. Sigh.
