Taxes can be so stressful. I'm sure you'll find a way to make it work though.

The year that Fiona was born, we were planning our wedding, had school debt, hospital bills, midwife bills, and had just bought our first home. We were expecting about the same as you in our tax return...but then it turned out that DH's employer had totally screwed up his taxes and we ended up owing $1800. I remember just sitting and crying about how unfair it was, and wondering what on earth we were going to do. In the end it all worked out. We got the bills paid off on payment plans and had a beautiful wedding.

Now we're living in Canada, and we have to file taxes twice since the stupid US government requires Americans living abroad to file US taxes even if they didn't earn any income in the US. So frustrating.

Don't worry hun, things have a way of working themselves out.
