Just a little (link) love: hakuna matata edition

December 28, 2017

Looks like I’m not the only one in the clutches of bad parents. Piggy and Kitty talk to a young lady who’s spent years taking care of an abusive parent. Sounds … familiar.

Interesting: Hungarian mushroom soup. For completely random reasons (which I don’t remember), I was trying to think of Hungarian culinary specialties. Maybe it was floated as a possible vacation destination? That would make sense. I travel by stomach so the first thing I’d do is research the foods of the region to see if I must eat there.

SPOILERS WITHIN. Carrie Fisher, the Last Jedi, and her fantastic wit at play.

Looks like neither Linda or we will be able to fully deduct our SALT and property taxes with the new cap. Neither of us deliberately chose our homes at the prices they were because we counted on the deductions, but having them did help relieve the sting of our HCOLAs.

GYM on finding happiness after heartbreak. In relationships, I think it’s always important to value yourself more than you worry about whether you can find someone else, lest you settle.

Hakuna Matata

(to get me through the holidays)

    Thank you for the mention! Yes- so important to value yourself! I still suffer from low self esteem and am not as confident as I should be (and my current husband calls me out on it).

    Hakuna matata! 🙂

    I am so sorry the new tax stuff is not helpful to you regarding your property. My taxes on one small house are under $300 a year, and the other small, crappy house has taxes of $395.01 a year, which I just paid. Yea, that is dollars, so I know it is very low, but then, there is nothing here….unless you count catfish ponds and cow pastures…..lol

      Thanks, I appreciate the sympathy. Catfish ponds sound fabulous to me, though, I must admit. I’m very fond of them, they remind me of granny and the catfish are tasty 🙂

    Thanks for the link. I used to look forward to getting a tax refund that I could plow right back into house maintenance. I’m going to miss that boost. I’m waiting for my last paycheck so I can see how bad things will be for me in 2018 and beyond. I suspect I will be one of those people who ends up paying a lot more in federal income tax, too. 🙁

      I try not to think about any possible refunds but at the same time, it’s hard not to feel like it’s an unplanned windfall.

    I’ll never get over Carrie Fisher. Sniffles…
