I am back in New Hampshire. I really hate leaving DW and (S), but in the long run it will be the best thing for all of us. It is just difficult to leave and come here alone. I really do miss them while I am here.

Anyway, we have completed all our training, signed all our forms, and DW will bring them to the licensing worker tomorrow. We just have to wait for our new water test. The first one had a minor problem and we are hoping we have it corrected. DW will send another sample tomorrow afternoon. Our license runs out soon, so it is important that we get it reissued.

Yesterday we got a 1099 tax form in the mail from the state for the money they send for us to foster (S). It included the medical bills they paid for her as well. The form said we also had to pay social security and medicare on this amount, and it looked like they were considering it income. We have never received one of these before, and I did not think it was taxable income. I am at a loss on this one. DW is going to check things out tomorrow with the DHHS people, but right now it is not seeming right.

TPR Appeal is still in process. We have no idea where it is, and there is no way to find out. When the court makes a decision and sends it back, we will find out. Waiting is a real pain. We know the rest of the process can move relatively quick if we keep on people to move it along, but we have to get through this step first.

In the meantime, I am looking forward to (S) and DW coming to be with me from Thursday through Monday. The plan includes a trip to Check E Cheese's and a photograph taken with the famous Budweiser Clydesdales. We have plenty of other time to use up, but as yet, have not made any real plans. Of course there is the big game on Sunday. Maybe we will just have our very own party here in my suite.

Well, there is certiainly more to follow, and if anyone has any ideas about this 1099, please pass them along. It is really wierd....


  1. Look at it this way. If it really is all taxable then you get to deduct everything you spend on her as a business expense, document the loss you are undoubtedly taking, and have a nice deduction.

  2. That doesn't sound right to me either. The monthly reimbursment is not taxable income. Weird that you got that.
    Enjoy your weekend coming up!

  3. That's not right, I never get a 1099, in fact when I asked them if it was considered income for federal tax purposes they all told me no. I am in another state though, but since its federal taxes it shouldn't matter. They make lots of mistakes so do call, it probably is one. Especially for medical bills that is crazy.
