Well, blog world ... do you ever have moments in your life where you make an epic mistake?
That was me this year.
Somehow .. I managed to eff up the amount withheld on line 6 from my W4s. The short version is that not nearly enough was withheld from my paychecks and now my husband and I owe quite a bit to the IRS and the state. At first I thought, "Geebus ... there has to be some mistake!"
Mistake I made was a huge faux-pas with my withholdings.
We're talking thousands of dollars.
Thousands of dollars that at present, we don't have. (of course.)
I haven't really asked my husband what he thinks, because rightfully? He's allowed to be a bit peeved. On the one hand, my response is: "Learn from this." And on the other hand, my response is: "You damn well know better. If you had a question (and you did), it was your responsibility to ask."
Bonehead Award of the Year goes to ..... this girl.
Clearly my growing pains in life aren't over yet. I feel a little bad that this time, it directly affects my husband.
