certificate of rent paid

May 24th, 2006 at 07:57 am

I finally remembered to call my previous landlord and ask him for a 2005 certificate of rent paid. Once I get that, I should be able to file for a property tax refund. It kept slipping my mind (by law, though, he was supposed to send it to me in February). Last year I received $291 back - this year will most likely be less, but something is better than nothing.

I agree with what Thrifty Ray commented on in my last post. The thing is, I find it difficult to be a model employee when I'm unhappy with my job. It's hard to stand out from the crowd and tap dance my way to a better salary when I have to pry myself out of bed to trudge into work every day. Part of it is perspective - I could force myself to love it! - but that's not really authentic. If going to a private college taught me anything, it's that faking it makes me nauseous. It's not as if I make it obvious that I'm unhappy, but I find it hard to go above and beyond.

Well, we'll see. I'm still looking for a job that makes me happy (or at least doesn't require a tractor trailer to pull me out of bed in the morning). I do appreciate the suggestions.

In other news - tonight - more authentic Mexican food! Big Grin I've been corresponding with a friend of a friend via email in Spanish. Tonight we are all going out for dinner and I'll get to meet her in person. Mmmmmmm Mexican food.... (sorry Jeffrey!)

I need some anniversary gift ideas. SO tends to buy me really expensive electronic equipment and then my gifts seem silly in comparison. We have some cash back coming to us from our credit card...maybe I will suggest we go to a nice bed and breakfast and use that cash to pay for it. Hmmm....

    Anniversary gifts are always hard for me too. Have you thought about getting something to coincide with a hobby? That is what I did for my DH's birthday last month. I really had no idea what to do and so I asked a lot of nosey "Oh really? That's the game you play online, huh?" questions and then went to the video game store at the mall and told the cashier kid what I was looking for.

    The other things I have done for special hobby types gifts include: bike part gift certificate for cyclists, a pre-made small scale sailboat for someone who is into modeling, or maybe even art supplies for an artist (or someone who thinks he is anyway!)

    Man, I got wordy today! ...Sorry...
