Have I mentioned I really hate bookkeeping?
I stopped taking math when I was a junior in high school. That was 1962.
I use a calculator to balance my checkbook,
I also use a computer bookkeeping application,
and I study my bank balance, both on paper and online.
Most of the time, I get four different numbers.
Then I add it all up again on the calculator
to see who wins,
and I get a fifth number. If it wasn't so pathetic,
it would be funny.
This all used to be my husband's job, until his brain injury.
We have a small counseling business, and of course the usual bills and stuff.
I have four checking accounts, which actually makes things easier. (ha)
When tax time rolls around, I go berserk. Like this:
I have a sweet little room in my house that is my room for play.
Tax time, it gets invaded by very scary stuff.
(And all I really have to do is just get things together
and fill out this little 15-ish page form for the Tax Lady.)
My heart beats hard, my stomach hurts, and as I said in a previous post,
I flit around the house thinking up things to do so I don't have
to go in there. Until I can't delay any longer.
Corporation taxes are due on March 15. (Who knew that?)
This weekend was Deadline Weekend. Ick.
I survived. Here's how:
There is an inn in a nearby town that has a most spectacular Sunday brunch.
It isn't cheap, but the food is to die for. All-you-can-eat buffet.
Just look at the menu.
I made a deal with myself: if I could be done by brunch time on Sunday,
we would go and eat to our heart's content.
(extra bonus: after this brunch, we are so full that nobody wants dinner cooked later.)
I finished my tax prep!!!! (I am no fool.)
This being Maine, look at the first thing you see when you go into the buffet room.
I kid you not. All you can eat.
Plus, all the food in the photos below, and more.
Do you notice the pictures aren't in focus completely?
Neither was I.
.....you get the idea.
What does it say about me that I took photos of tables full of entrees and salads,
But when it came to the desserts, each got a photo of its own??
Plus I had a mimosa. Just one.

Here is my sewing/beading/painting/quilting/knitting play room now.
My projects await, and Daylight Savings Time happens next weekend!!!
Life is grand once more.
