I did my !@#$%*& income tax today.

Thank goodness that’s done! My refund is going to be lower this year because I didn’t mess up and make the same mistake of the last two years. I was going to do an amended return to avoid paying the penalty but it was getting so involved that I figured I’ll do that later. I still have time for that. Plus, I want to send them the money I owe when I file it and I’ll need to have my refund from this year in hand to help with it. Such a mess! I don’t like dealing with the IRS.

With my nap yesterday and sleeping in this morning, I got about 9.5 hours last night. I did all of my exercises this morning.


32 ozzies strawberry/OJ smoothie
32 ozzies mango/OJ smoothie
Probably 4 ozzies OJ, plain
2 persimmons
Kim chee (both veggie and mung bean)

I didn’t really have lunch. While I talked to my daughter, I ate a whole little watermelon.

32 ozzies “chili”
1 Ataulfo mango
1 persimmon
Huge salad (red leaf, romaine, red onion, 1/2 red sweet pepper, pickling cucumber, dressed with tomato/mango dressing)
A few pieces eggplant bacon

My son called to find out just where the Asian market is. I told him he should go there and just wander around and see all they have to offer. Since they eat a lot of cooked food vs my raw, they can get some good deals on things. I got some Shiratake noodles for $1.29 a bag for one of the girls at work who is on Weight Watchers.

I downloaded TaxAct before my daughter called. She and I visited for a little over an hour and a half. After we hung up, I got to it and it took me quite a bit longer to complete than it has before. I had entered something twice and that was time-consuming to find and fix and then I entered something else that I had to delete. When I got it all done and double-checked, I was going to e-file but, because I had changed those two things, it wouldn’t let me. That’s okay. I can paper file. It will delay my refund but I won’t be spending it or paying bills with it this year.

My plans to get the dastardly deed done and have time to work on some new designs for shirts, etc., were ruined. I was eating my salad at 8:45 as it was. The designs will have to wait for another time.

I’m pretty wrung out from all the excitement of the day so I’m going to go to bed.

    No escaping death and taxes. At least you don’t have to think about it again for a while.

    I know. The two inevitables. And praise the Lord, it’s done for this year. Except for the amended return. If the penalty weren’t so steep, I’d let them catch it but I don’t want to pay out close to $60 over what the additional tax will be.
