The past week has been trying. The side effects of the antibiotics are slowly wearing off and I had a few days of bleak mental weather at the beginning of the week, but I know what triggered it. I've been sitting on the fence on filing taxes because I had no income last year and don't want the appearance of impropriety if Himself claims Laurel as his dependent on his return (which he legally *shouldn't* do, but I don't know whether he did).

In good news:
- my mouth has been healing quite nicely,
- the fridge is full of yummy Italian leftovers,
- Vogon's offered to install a 120 Gb drive on Naess (my computer), which will quadruple the amount of storage space I've got _and_ consolidate it to one drive,
- I moved most of the plants onto the patio (once the herbs I repotted to perk up, I'll take and post photos), and
- I got an e-mail from saarlander that the violet garlic Vogon fondly remembers has come into season and he's sent some our way. *foodie lust*

I've got two questions about future content for you, Dear Readers:
- Do you think I should trim back from the 20-30 photos I've been posting monthly (currently behind by a few months) to oddharmonic.org to an annual directory of the best 40-50 photos with links to Gallery albums for specific events (holidays, trips, etc.)?
- Would you like to see a series of drawings about food with captions by Laurel?

Glad to hear you are feeling better. :)

Questions: 1 - Sure. 2- Yes! Can't wait to see them!

Drawings would be cool. As for photos, it's really up to you. I like the photos, but I'm not the one who does all the work of getting them up for viewing.

Continue to feel better!

I'd like to see the drawings.

I'm interested in anything you'd like to post, in any way that you want to post it. I say go with what you are comfortable with, really.

Your Ex would have to prove that Laurel lived with him for 6 months or more to claim her on his taxes.

To M:
Also, no matter what H does with his taxes, the general rule is that you still have to be honest. If you are required by law to claim L, you must. If it's optional, and she qualifies as a "dependent", then you can, no matter what anyone else does. I'm not totally up to speed on my tax law, but I think that the qualifiers for dependents are set up so that pretty much only one person should be able to claim her. Generally, you don't have to avoid claiming her, if you qualify, solely because you think H is going to file a fraudulent return claiming her. When the audit comes, your return is true, his is false, and he's the one who gets spanked for it.

You know, I'm happy just being able to see pictures at all. I think it's awesome that you post them in the first place, but don't feel like you have a quota :)

wondering where you've been!

Hooray for feeling better!

Two answers:
a) Whichever you'd prefer is better! If I had to say, I'd prefer Monthly, but if Annual is what you're leaning towards that'd be good, too. Perhaps quarterly?

b) Sure, that could be interesting!

and i've missed you, wondering how you've been, but i've been sick my own self, mainly just reading and posting a little.

glad you're feeling better.
