Income tax is finally done...

Sunday, April 15, 2012

Income taxes are finally done and netfiled...now I just have to wait and see if I made any mistakes! Lots of praying going on and asking my angels for help in understanding and entering things correctly *grin*
You would think that after all these years of doing them, I wouldn't get so stressed out. Obviously, I have some left over issues with failure that I still need to work on.

The ground received more snow yesterday and last night. It's stopped snowing now and hopefully will begin the process all over again of melting and being mucky.

Our cordless phones finally bit the dust yesterday...they were so old and on their last leg for awhile, but we kept putting off replacing them. Yesterday we had to finally get new ones. It took a trip to Costco and me trying to figure out how to set them up. It will be a learning process, I'm sure, for a bit. I do love though that they tell me in this lovely voice...who is calling. I think that the number needs to be in my directory of numbers though first. Very cool and totally unexpected to have my phone talk to me! The other great plus...they take up very little room unlike the old ones, and when you enter a number into the directory on one phone, it saves on all of them. No more having to update each phone. I do need to record a nice new answer message on the phone though in case we aren't home. So much fun.

My positives:

Income taxes are done for another year and netfiled.
New cordless phones that talk to me when there is a call coming in. Talk about not having to get up and answer the phone unless I want to talk to that person *grin*
Did I mention that income taxes are done *grin*
It has stopped snowing.
Managed to get my steps all in yesterday...a great stress reliever to just get up and do some walking.
Blessed with guidance and assistance from above.

Have a great and wonderful day, I will now that income taxes are done *grin*

Hugs,
Wanda

    I'll take our rain and 70 temp over your snow any day, lol, hopefully your snow will soon come to an end and you'll get the rain instead. Woo hoo, for the taxes being done. Have a wonderful week.

Hugs,

    Sounds like you are having a ball with your new phone, hee hee. Fitbit is easy and you'll be able to get that going without a problem. Now, you keep that darn snow girl as I can't believe you are still getting some at mid-April, grrrrr. Have a great day!

April 14th and it's snowing!

Saturday, April 14, 2012

The rain we have been getting has turned to snow overnight. The ground is once again white. The temps are sitting at zero though, so hoping that as the day progresses that it turns back into rain.

Last evening we decided to go out with the girls and Kyle to celebrate Kyle's birthday. We went to the Sawmill for dinner. Not much on the menu for me to eat, but I did eventually decide on the dinner size Caesar salad. We had a lovely time together. Kaeli had baked some lava cakes so dessert was at the girls place. Garry and I decided to for go the dessert though as both of us were really tired. Besides...I'm not a chocolate fan, so the idea of eating all that chocolate wasn't hard to pass up.

This morning, I need to get organized and start on the taxes. Not much time left to get them done in. Other than getting the taxes done, I have no other plans for this weekend. I did get my bread made and baked yesterday so that chore is off my list of to dos.

My positives:

I got a good number of steps in once again yesterday.
I received an email from Fitbit to let me know that my Fitbit has been shipped. I hope to get it in the next couple of weeks. Depends on how long it takes to get through customs.
Keeping hopeful that my kefir grains will arrive on Monday seeing as they didn't arrive this week.
A lovely celebration dinner last evening with the girls and Kyle.
I survived this past week at work.
It's the weekend and I only have two more weeks until I have some holiday time!
Blessed with a new day of life and the opportunity to be all that I have been created to be.

Have a wonderful Saturday.
Hugs,
Wanda

    I wish I had that problem of not liking chocolate. Sounds like you had a nice evening. Hope you get those taxes done without any hitches along the way. Hope it warms up so you just get rain and no more snow.

Hugs,
Shirl

    That is so awesome about your Fitbit. I am so wanting one myself. Let me know how it works for you when you get it!

    OMG, snow again. Don't you dare send that one my way either, LOL. How I wish I could do without the chocolate, hee hee. Good for you. Have a great day and deep breaths while doing your taxes :)

Yay It's Friday!

Friday, April 13, 2012

Last day of the work week...yay! It's been a very long and busy week. Next week is already shaping up to be a busy one too. On the plus side...I've got holidays from the 27th to May 7th. We have no plans to go anywhere, which suits me fine. I'm just looking forward to having the time off.

It started raining last night and it's still raining this morning...no sign of the white stuff, so I'm happy. Things will be looking so much fresher now. All the dust and grime of winter will be washed away.

Tomorrow was supposed to be my monthly massage day, but I've decided to cancel it as I have to do taxes and there is no sense having a nice relaxing massage first thing in the morning and then coming home and stressing *grin* I'll re book it for a later date.

My positives:
It's Friday!
Garry told me to go ahead and order the FitBit. Yay....watch Estelle and I go now! Thanks Estelle for all the feed back and information.
Had a great day with my steps yesterday.
A better day in our department yesterday...leaving all the windows open for most the day prior helped to really clear the air in there. I could breath much better. My co-workers are so understanding as we spent most of the day in our extra sweaters. The plus side...yesterdays meetings were able to be held outside our department, so my time in there was limited.
Blessed with life, health, family and friends.

Have an awesome day...it may be Friday the 13th, but it's still our choice what we make of our day.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Hope the income tax thing goes smoothly and yes it'd be better to have that massage after the taxes are done, lol. Enjoy your weekend as much as you can. We are suppose to start getting rain around midnight and then on through Monday, but we need it.

Hugs,
Shirl

    Probably a wise choice on cancelling your massage. You may need it more afterwards, heehee. Have a great day and weekend.

Moving right along.

Thursday, April 12, 2012

April 12 already! This has been a busy week at work. It's also been a week of battling side effects from our department floors being polished on the Easter weekend. In order for me to remain at work, I've been having to keep the windows open all day by my desk. Not the warmest alternative, but at least I can breath. My face has broken out in lovely little bubbles despite the windows being open and I have to be extra careful that they don't pop and become infected. Just one of the many side effects that chemicals have on my body. Unfortunately it a week of meetings that I have to be at, so staying home and working from home is not an option this week. Such is life.

On the plus side...all the meetings have been going well and not lasting overly long. One more this morning with one of our vendors and then I can concentrate on catching up on my regular workload. It was payday yesterday, always a nice bonus, and Garry had time to allow me to stop at the grocery store on the way home from work yesterday to pick up some much needed veggies and fruit. Having one vehicle is great, but coordinating our work schedules sometimes is tricky. But it works.

Had a nice suppertime visit from Kaeli last evening. She walked over from her place to pick up some mail and stayed to have some dinner with us. She also baked some incredible yummy muffins that she shared with us.

Not much to share this morning and time is a wasting so best get the rest of my posts done.

Have a wonderful and exciting day
Hugs,
Wanda

    Hope the fresh air will keep you from reacting any worse and that your face clears up quickly. How nice to get muffins from Kaeli along with her visit, a nice little treat. Well this week is almost over with and hopefully you can have a nice relaxing weekend.

Hugs,
Shirl

    WOW, too bad you had meetings as they should have accommodated you and not have to go in. They really should think about people with sensitivities. Hope your face makes it through alright. Have a great day!

Feeling great!

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

It's a new day and I'm choosing to make it a great day.

It will be a long day at work today as I have a meeting late this afternoon that is a monthly one that I must attend. I will end up missing next month's monthly meeting as I will be on holidays though, so not a bad trade off *grin*.

I need to get to the grocery store today too, as there is no fresh fruit left! Having our son at home and him taking lunches for work also, means a bigger run on the food. He's like me...loves his fruit.

I've set up a meeting with a Financial Planner for Garry and I for next week. Now that we are seriously looking at one day being retired...we need to know a bit more about what we need to do to get to that point. Somehow, I think it's going to be a long ways off *grin*.

My positives:
More promised sunshine for today.
A good night's sleep once again, only woke up a couple of times.
I've got in almost 1500 steps already this morning and I'm not even out the door yet for work!
I'm choosing to focus on my goals.
Blessed with friends and family that support and encourage me.
Blessed with a new day of life to be all that I've been created to be.
Making wise choices.
Woo hoo...it's also payday!

Have a blessed and wonderful day also.

Hugs,
Wanda
