Does everyone hate tax time as much as me?
Wednesday, March 06, 2013
So once again, I’ve been away from Spark for a few days. While I would prefer to spend all of my spare time playing, exercising outdoors, or checking out my friends activity here, there are those unpleasant things that we must occasionally make time for. So I spent my weekend off doing the one thing I hate the most - preparing my taxes.
I used to pay a CPA to do them when I was also working as a licensed massage therapist, but my carpal tunnel surgery in both hands ended my practice. Without all those other business forms to include, I couldn’t justify paying the high price for tax preparation any longer. So I stopped procrastinating this weekend and went to work. I admit there were a few times when I had to stop and remind myself again why I wasn’t paying Chris (my CPA) to do this for me. But in the end, I got them completed and e-filed, and I saved us a bunch of money. Yay!!!
I then spent the last two days, when not at work, searching for a new mattress set - something Tommy and I really need. Is it me, or are the big name brands making their mattresses cheaper? We bought a Simmons Beauty Rest mattress years ago and it has been wonderful, but even the best wear out. When I checked out the new ones I was really disappointed because they didn’t seem as well made. Anyway, I ended up finding what I hope will be a great mattress set that came highly recommended by my son’s friend and it will be delivered next week. Hopefully our quality of sleep will improve.
Now back to the important things like spending time with family and friends and hiking, biking and kayaking (if the weather will hurry and warm up). Hope you are all having a great week!
