Doing Our Taxes
Kicking and Screaming. I always leave this to the last and then it takes all of three or four hours and I bang my forehead on the desk and yell "why did I wait?". And here we are again.
My excuse this year is G's heart. Not that I didn't have the time (I didn't) but that he hadn't installed the updated tax program before having the heart attack.
This is my story and I'll stick to it.
Another page in the history of our marriage. I am forever a procrastinator. Writing this is procrastination. Picking dead, dry leaves off a fern, that was also. Oddly enough, I do some things when procrastinating that would be the things not being done by others who procrastinate. I do laundry, wash dishes, change bedding, take down and wash heavy large curtain panels, wash windows, vacuum, weed the garden etc etc. Those things don't bother me. I will even iron huge baskets full of shirts. And starch them. No problem.
Taxes? Problem. Paying Bills? Problem. Car Servicing? Problem. Driver's License Renewal? Problem. My own doctor's appointments? Problem. Appointments At the Bank? Problem. Learning New Computer Software? Forget about it.
And that's the post for today. I have to stop now or lose whatever slight momentum I have to actually get the taxes done today. OMG.
