Doing taxes = stress!!!!!!
Monday, March 15, 2010
Not only are we not getting as big a refund as we expected, we OWE a ton to the Feds. BLAH!
After finishing the taxes and paying the money owed, I felt completely stressed out. All I wanted for dinner was a Five Guys burger, with cheese AND bacon. And don't forget a large fry to go with that.
Instead, I pulled out a pound of locally raised beef from the fridge and made whole wheat spaghetti with meat sauce for dinner. I was able to have some of the slightly fatty meatiness that I wanted from the burger, but also threw a bunch of mushrooms and zucchini into the sauce and served it all with a side of oven roasted brussels sprouts, giving me lots of good veg for the night.
I've still not reached the lower end of my calories range today, so I might splurge on some ice cream tonight. But maybe I'll just make a fruit and yogurt smoothy? Either way, I feel like I've made some good choices and dealt well with a real stressor today.
