Random thoughts (really needing to just get stuff off of my chest....)

The government workers lied!

So last year, when I started to actually make money, I informed Social Security that I wanted them to cancel my death benefits as I would soon be reaching the maximum amount you can earn for the year. So, that's what they did. They told me there would be no penalties and I was in the clear. The next month I got a check. I quickly took it into the SS office and returned it. This happened one other time. Each time I made sure that I was "kosher" with getting married and starting working. Each time I was told that I was fine.

Well, yesterday I get a letter from SS telling me that I owe them over $8,000 due to overpayment for last year. First of all they didn't give me $8,000 in the months I received SS. They are saying that I owe them and I should pay now. WHAT?! Didn't I get this all figured out. I was so anal about it and made sure all of my ducks where in a row. I spent hours sitting in the damn office and on the phone with those people. I am so sad, angry and freaked out. Since I haven't been working for the last 2 months money is not something we can just hand out. Especially $8,000. Right now I hate the SS office. Except for the woman who is now "investigating this issue" for me.

Soren was up 6 times last night. Really, I am open for suggestions....

I am so tired.
