Finished the taxes last night. It took me an hour and a half and I almost lost my mind at the end, but held it together and e-filed both federal and state and now, we're just waiting on our stolen money to be returned to us.
Some asked why I did them myself. Well, number 1: I'm cheap and I don't want to pay anyone for what I can do myself (and since we have a fairly uncomplicated life, I can rely on Turbo Tax to walk me through it). Number 2: I'm sure if I don't do it myself, it won't be done correctly. I want to SEE those numbers and understand it. Not that I find it fun, but I know my life better than a tax preparer, so being the control freak I am, it just works out better for me.
And, also, I semi watched American Idol last night and as some said, they thought there were three really interesting guys. I don't know who their three are, but mine are 1. Young guy (17) with amazing voice; 2. Dredlock guy; and 3. Australian guy.
Onto the girls tonight. It'll be helpful when I start to learn everyone's names. That usually takes me a few weeks! LOL. Half the time, I can't remember what day it is in my own life, so yeah, I'm a scatterbrain.
The last couple of days, it has snowed a bit during the day. So, I sit and fret and wonder if school will be dismissed early and then the whole thing clears up by pick up time. It's not warm by any stretch, but the roads are clear.
Well, I have needed to hit the Evil Empire (Wal-Mart) all week. I'm down to one egg that is a week past it's date, 9 diapers and one squeeze of hair conditioner that came with my hair color. Let's just say it's getting a little desperate around here.
I told the Evil Twin that if tomorrow is a repeat, then he'll be taking us all to the Evil Empire after he gets off work. I figure we could load up on chicken and potato wedges from the deli and make a meal out of that for when we get home. Sissy and I love their boneless barbecue chicken bites.
I have a few items I wanted to look around at before AI comes on, so that's all for tonight, folks.
