05:34 pm: Canine training: Week 9
The good news for the week is that we had our validation on Tuesday and all of the dogs passed. There was much rejoicing! Everything from now on is just icing on the cake.

My parents came down on Wednesday evening, and they've been staying with me. I also got a chance to spend some time Friday evening with an aunt and uncle who were passing through the area while on vacation.

Now comes the strange part. I got a letter from the IRS on Saturday in which they contested my claim that my salary from January-March 2008 (when I was in Japan) was foreign earned income, and therefore they believe that I owe over $3000 in back taxes on it. Um...say what? I'm going to have to call the contact number they gave me on Monday and find out what documentation I can send them to prove that I was in fact physically present in a foreign country while earning that money.

Yuck on the IRS thing. I hope that doesn't turn out to be too much of a pain... :/

Yay! Congratulations on the validation^^

re: IRS; I have to buck the usual trend and say that generally, they're fairly easy to deal with. (after the massive procedural overhaul they went through a few years ago) Once you get a real person on the phone, it should be pretty simple to get things worked out.

Still sucks to have to do though >

Congratulations to you and Benny!

My sympathy on the IRS mix-up. I hope you get it cleared up quickly, but I'm sorry for the bother.
