Ready, Set, TAXES!!


Yep! It's my first day of working the tax season in the Erie PA office. I have gone in to file some things only to discover that I never shuffled my files last summer. Usually after the rush is over, I come in and move things around so I have room in all the file drawers for the next year's returns to fit. I did come in and sort through some of the older drawers for the shredding piles, but I guess I just forgot where I left off. Now I am waiting for the sweat to dry. And wondering how much I sorted those files out last summer. I think I left enough room to handle this year and then next summer I'll do some more magic sorting, pitching, shredding. Remember, NEATNESS COUNTS!!

It is a rather dreary day, rainy, so we didn't walk. Ernie looked sad and I sure could have used it, but... you know what they say about Rainy Days and Mondays... But there is a nice young man doing magic in my Bathroom today with a bathtub issue, which led to another issue, but hoping by the end of the week, we'll be all back to normal operation. I am SO not good at decisions sometimes. What color do you want? What goes with what? I am not a huge decorator, so I know that what I pick will be there a long time. I like my bedroom wallpaper...I just did it...before Robinson's went out of business...before Albert came over from Russia...yes, I guess I'm a rut person. It's been up 10 years...yeah, I'm OK with that. I'll just sew a new quilt for the bed this year and we'll be good. Well...there is that issue with the kitchen drawer....!!

dh is meeting with our tax person today, just that time of the year!

I'm a rut sort of person, too. Tho I love to come up with ideas, but then never get around to doing them...

Ugh. Taxes. Do we really have to go there?

=)

PS. I'm sure my husband will be getting on it very soon. Not his favorite thing.

So... since surgery on my 20ish year old quilt is not your recommendation ~ how about coming down, teaching me to make one (with a beach theme for the guest room) while you make yours.... Perhaps April 16?

You can come here while DH goes west to do that thing he does...

Jen Hen-
I really like tax season, but I'm the one doing yours and helping you to be happy and less stressed, so that's the part I like! I was more decorator in my early years, I think. Now my house is pretty full of stuff and I think "What do I have to move or discard to get that kind of look and how long will it take me?" Kind of takes the wind out of my decorating sails!!
SUE:
My friend was talking about getting her stuff around yesterday and she said if she died, her husband would get help with the kids and the house, but the papers would kill him!
BeStill: Giving some serious thought to the April quickie visit...People here are all going at different times and our Beth Moore thing that I'm part in charge of is the 24th...but thinking...
