  1. LB log - 20140515

    It feels quite relieving to be home at 4PM today.

    On one hand I can take some time to dig further into the IRS correction list, and on the other I can actually just turn in earlier for once and get some extra sleep while I can. I should be able to go through the rest of the list within the next three days as long as my days are like this where I have enough time to work.

    Songs were decent today, and at least felt better in play than yesterday. I'm excluding the inexpicably ...

    Two hours to get in, and the last quarter of it was me gritting my teeth because I had to urinate so badly. Yesterday I left at 5 and got home by 710. Today I left at 7 and got home at 8. It definitely seems like I need to make these trips before 7 and after 6 or else I'll just double my commute time. What was just as amusing is that my car seems to have decided to stop pumping out warm air through the vents, so this morning's bleary 45 degree rainy weather was a delight.

    I arrived ...

    The commute is simply brutal. Over an hour there, and today it took just a bit over two hours to get back. At least I structured my day effectively enough to get the job done. Went to the classroom, managed to get two full rounds of practice questions answered, went over and took the test. Passed. I still got 4 out of 28 wrong on the general knowledge section, which angers me because of the simplicity of the question structure. The questions are multiple choice of three, and indeed of general knowledge. ...

    $2300. Today was day one of the class. I had to go back a distance after I overshot the location on the way up. It was pretty easy to miss, considering that I was expecting to find something of a parking lot facility and not a store unit within a strip mall that didn't have a store front sign to afford any kind of identification. Later on, I received directions of where to go to take a test, and the instructions handed to me was wrong for that as well. I failed the test, too, but that's basically ...

    The office opens at 9AM. That means I can probably wake up at 6 and take care of business before making the call to ensure I have a reason to drive out there today. I'm assuming that I will be making the trip.

    The IRS response did in fact come today, and it appears that I have a series of adjustments to make. It won't be happening tonight, though; but perhaps I can look into some of it, depending on how much demand this cat on my desk has for me to bestow attention upon it.

    The cat accompanied me to bed this morning. In the process of doing that, he stands on my body as I'm on my back and petting him. This makes him happy enough to drool. When he drools at this point, he sneezes and sprays drool everywhere. When he did that today, I had my eyes open at just the right time to get a money shot of cat drool directly onto my right eyeball. It triggered a reaction strong enough to compel me to move downstairs and sleep on the futon so that I could get decongested and blow ...

    I had a whole post written for yesterday and I guess I just never actually clicked on the submit button after getting the preview set. Weird. I usually don't fail to make that much happen correctly.

    The tax code updates are finally done. There were more minor revisions at the end than I had anticipated. I was at a point where I was having progress nearly halted because I kept bouncing from one source document to another and subsequently losing my place on the main source page for ...

    The going rate seems to be $2500 for the course. Now I just need to figure out how soon I can start. It seems that my mind is pretty well made up about this. I had a phone call from my Mom today about people she's spoken with and about how I might be able to have a job where she worked (then went into detail about how the place "sucks you in and you never feel like you can leave and you get worked" and so on; it was a really effective sell), and all the while I realize that her proposal ...

    One course is up for four weeks and $2500. Another I'll need to call. The ducks are lining up. Every day is pain for her, still. Still. That hasn't changed. I need to do this in case all else continues to fail as it has failed for so long now.

    In the meantime I have the rest of the tax code to finish up as well as see about doing these applications for some video game journalist job links. See, I mentioned a while ago that my wife's friend's son wants to become a game journalist, ...

    26 USC 433 requires me to add a new 188 lines worth of content to the tax code page. The subject is minimum funding standards about pension plans, so there's a lot of dense content per item which means that a lot of it is going to be left on the cutting floor when I'm done with it. This is going to take a while.

    I was able to finally obtain the acknowledgements from my 1120 submissions last week and get a few today, until it all just as suddenly came to a complete stop. I was logged ...

    945PM and I can't even keep focus on anything. I probably should have just stayed in bed when seeing my wife to sleep earlier. 75 minutes later, I at least managed to get around on doing the code updates. Very minor changes were all I had until I got to the bottom of Public Law 113-97. http://beta.congress.gov/113/bills/h...3hr4275enr.xml . Looks like I have a new section to add as well as a fair quantity of changes to be made elsewhere. This new congress.gov layout is pretty nice, and ...

    What I actually should be doing before getting back into writing more ES roughs is to get the tax code page up to date, as I mentioned before. I looked at the classification tables a few days ago and didn't find too many individual sections which needed revision, but of course that doesn't inform me of exactly how much needs to be changed. But, still, I should do that first.

    Besides, there might be a lot more time for the former in the future regardless. She goes back to work tomorrow ...

    Still no IRS acknowledgement and the weekend is here. Individual tax season is done. I've been thinking about resuming it, so let's go.

    Draft.

    The snoring continued uninterrupted. She made a second attempt by bending over and speaking louder.

    Yes I did have to call the IRS today for them to give me my Software ID number, as I had no response in the mail. Just before writing this, I finished sending off the revised submissions to include the SID which I received. I didn't receive any acknowledgement for any of them, and I had given plenty of time for at least the first of them to come back as I saw my wife to bed after sending that one in and before getting the rest submitted. If I can't get any kind of resolution on how to get this issue ...

    I didn't get to exercise until 3AM yesterday thanks to having other things to do when I woke up. Doing that then going to bed only to wake up and do another hour today was ... nothing particularly special at all actually. I will say, I should have checked the questionnaire that the IRS sent me yesterday before going to bed, as it didn't have a Software ID provided on it, which means that I'll need to await for it to come back in a new response or call for one tomorrow.
