Good Grief, Oklahoma!

I have a feeling the folks in the Oklahoma Comptroller's Office heard someone in Washington D.C. said that there was nothing more complicated than the Federal Income Tax form, and they looked at each other and said "Wanna bet?" and then they created the Oklahoma Income Tax Form. Particularly the Non Resident Oklahoma Income Tax Form.

But after three hours and a lot of "What does that mean?" I finally got it done, and all for $5.00. That's right, I owe Oklahoma five measly dollars.

On the health front, Hubby is just about back to normal. Last Friday I began to feel pressure in my left ear that soon felt like there was a ping pong ball lodged behind my ear drum and a piercing pain when I bent over. Recognizing the signs of ear infection, I started taking a decongestant and juiced an onion for a natural anti-inflammatory and antibiotic ear drop. That usually nips it in the bud for me, and it did stop the pain, but not all the pressure. Saturday morning I woke with no pain in the left ear but soon I had it in the right ear, so I repeated my onion juice ear drops. I've been coughing up my toenails for most of the week and it finally eased up yesterday, but the pressure in my head continues. I keep thinking I will swallow and the ears will suddenly clear like on an airplane, but they don't. So I gave up and made a doctor's appointment.

Other than not-quite-death and taxes, nothing much going on around here.


  1. I had never heard of the onion juice ear drops!

  2. For years I'd get something in the mail from the PA tax people/ and do the form then call it in via a TELEFILE system

    This year I did my federal taxes in March at some point and not until April did it dawn on me...where was my PA tax stuff? ! ? Nothing. They'd changed it all..and made it quite difficult to search online as to what to do. I do NOT want to file electronically...every time you turn around this that or the other place is getting hacked...so I printed out their crap and sent it all in last minute :)
