I feel like a bunch of ya are like this right now.
We did ours last week. Well, my wife did it as that's her expertise since she works for the cra (Canada revenue agency or the Canadian version of the IRS). Her department is the one that calls you when you haven't filed your taxes in years and works with you to get them in. So she knows what she's doing and how to best enter the numbers for a sizeable return. We usually get money back every year. This year, let's just say that it's enough to pay our annual camp fees for the year and allow her to take July and August off without pay. We've worked out the finances so that she never has to work a summer again.Took all my tax information to my accountant today, he will prepare my taxes. I'm pretty sure I will pay. I always pay. It's just the way of the world. They take my money.
I also went to the butcher shop and picked up an order that we placed with them. Basically re-filled the freezer, beef and pork.
Congrats!We'll, It's Wednesday night and I made it back in one piece. The Wife spent all four days in the truck cab with me and ,,,,, WE ARE SILL MARRIED>!!!
Next week,,,; May 10th will be 52 years for us.Congrats!
We just celebrated our 36th Anniversary, but never locked her in the truck with me for 4 days in a row. So you clearly got me beat.
Bit of a hectic day here, got up and started cleaning the house. Dept of Child Services was scheduled to show up at lunch time, our regular case worker + her brand new supervisor. Kobe has been running a fever for the past several days, 3 trips to the doctor, so the house was a bit of a mess and dusty as we had more important things to worry about.
Meeting with DCS went well, it always does, our case worker is great.
This afternoon I had an interview with the local PBS station scheduled at our fencing club. Rode the motorcycle in and it was 55 degrees (F) and sunny. So a pleasant ride. Had to be at the club at 5 so the crew could set up their cameras. Did the interview, which lasted about 30 minutes. He set up the questions, I had to reply is a specific format, covered pretty much everything. It was finished prior to the club members showing up, the TV crew stayed for another 90 minutes and filmed the club members fencing, we talked about several of the members, focused on the fact that we are a recreational club but we do our best to support competitive members, often using outside coaches to come in for more expert instruction.
Rode home at 9pm, 45 degrees, no sun, a bit of a cool ride home.
