Thank you Peter!!

What I'm taking away from your explanation--and I may be wrong--is that the 1098's I received for 2010, 2011, 2012 appear to be correct...

Under normal circumstances, given my situation, I would have seen the following--
2012 ... 12 months of interest paid
2011 ... 12 months of interest paid
2010 ... 1/2 month of interest paid


But this is what I actually had--
2012 ... 12 months of interest paid (all payments fell within the month they were due)

2011 ... 11 months of interest paid (first payment of the year was actually early and credited towards previous year)

2010 ... 1-1/2 months of interest paid (because I inadvertently paid first payment of 2011 too early).

Net result is essentially the same however, and I didn't "miss" any deduction...
