I just got an email from the Cornell Bursar office, alerting me that they will soon be sending out W-2s. Wait a minute, that’s what starts tax season. Are they serious? I just did that!

I’m sure he’ll be glad to avoid the tax moodiness, but I haven’t quite gotten my hands into all of his important papers–I may be sending some frantic email in March. I knew there would be hitches in this whole international trip, but I thought I might not have to learn about them until he was a little closer to going.
