Got my hair trimmed, and good news - it only needed about an inch and a half taken off, not 2-3 inches as I had thought. Yay! Plus she decided to curl my hair, so I've got some pretty spiral curls in it right now. We'll see how long they last - my hair's so heavy they usually pull out pretty fast, but she sprayed them a bit too so maybe they'll still be around when Ezzie gets home today. Perhaps one day I'll buy a curling iron and learn how to do it myself.
ezzie00 went to turn in our tax stuff to H&R Block for them to prepare our taxes for next year. It looks like we're getting a significant chunk of change back, between Imnx witholding too much from me, the mortgage credit, and both of our tuition adjustments (he's filing an amended 2000 return to get his credit). I'm aware that getting lots of $$ back at tax time indicates you should increase deductions and so on, so as to avoid giving the .gov a tax/interest free loan, but at this point this is a very helpful windfall. I'll contact HR soon to adjust my deductions, as soon as we figure out what they should be.
More rumors are flying around work about what the merger is going to do to us. Sigh. I just want to know whether I need to start job shopping now or if I'm safely staying here in Seattle.
