Thanks for the sympathy, y'all.
I am the sort to be very prudent with money and jump to immediate, negative conclusions, but he knew it would be this bad. Since our last tax season, he has gotten an immensely better job and jumped us into a higher tax bracket, but since he's been using his spare money to dig us out of his graduate school credit card debt, I hadn't seen the change in our circumstances. Anyway, we plan on paying it with a credit card next week and then paying off the credit card within 2 months. We will be debt free by tadpole's birth, as DH tells it.
I'm feeling much better now... not only because DH assures me this tax issue is not the end of the world, but also because I received the LOVELIEST swap in the mail yesterday!!!!veganf
is a very generous and talented lady, and she just completely showered me with baby affection, right when I needed it most! The cutest pirate cap EVER, an adorable (!!!) newborn outfit that will be perfect for next fall, a great Dr. Sears book (that I... um... read last night... ), a gorgeous packet of handmade cards, a book for baby and some foody goodies. Krista, thank you so much for your thoughtfulness. It could not have come at a better time, and it is just an ideal care package for a new mom-to-be!!!
And thanks to karma for arranging the swap! So much fun!
