Taxes, Money, and death

Yesterday, I mailed a check to Uncle Sam for $1000.00.  It was Q4 payment for self employment tax to keep for being penalized for not paying/withholding enough tax through the year.  That sucked, since I had to scrap every cubbyhole to get that much together.  

Gary Roberts died same day. He was my sister’s first husband and father of her four kids.  The kids just got over her death, now they lost their dad. That sucks too! Some of them hadn’t talked to him for years due to some spat they had about money.
