Saturday,Taxes are ready to go, and unloading stuff

     I was able to get the taxes ready last night while I was watching TV.  I just spread it all out on the floor and plugged in the adding machine.  They were ready to go to the accountant in bout an hour.  It is so nice not have the taxes of the studio.  Remember when I used to work for 12-24 hours over a week of time on those.  But our taxes are going to get easier with the new standard deduction.  So many things we needed to save will not be necessary.  I wonder about the no deduction for charity and worry about local charities having a hard time now that people cannot fully deduct their givings.  But I also think it will be more fair to the middle class and lower middle class.  We will see.  I don't mind paying my fair share of taxes.

 I spent the day chasing babies, and changing nappies, but as long as the basement was in chaos, why not add to it.  I decided to clean out the video cupboards, the the end table picture cabinet and the computer desk.  This unloaded believe it or not 322 more items.  I threw away 2 13 gallon garbage bags of trash and took three heaping clothes baskets to good will.   I also took everything out of the linen cabinet upstairs but have not even touched that pile.

It is amazing to see how much stuff can come out of a house and you can't even tell you did anything.  What I can tell you is that this house needs a really good deep cleaning.  But once I get rid of the things that need to go I can deep clean one room at a time.

Hub's and I are going to drive a loop to visit 3 missionary apartments today.  So I will get to look at great scenery.

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.
