Tuesday! Taxes are done, well almost...

Day 29 no CC use!
Studio account $3.12
personal account $24.54

     Two more days and I am off jury duty!

     Well I took the taxes in yesterday and I am missing D#3's school interest document.  So I call school and they are not available until the 31st, but they want the FAFSA by the 15th of February.  So the whole nation that does pay attention to deadlines has two weeks to get the right figures. You have to love the government.

     We had a bad snow storm on the prairie last night so neither of my teachers could make it down, but we did get the photo shoot done for the Celtic show poster and that is one thing out of the way.  I had to teach for 5 hours and it almost killed me.  Lazy thing that I am.

     I figured something out when I was doing my taxes.  I traveled a lot last year.  I mean every month sometimes twice a month I was off across the state.  I am going to try not to do that so much this year.  I love to go see the kids but it is expensive.  Both of the older girls made major moves last year and we went to help.  Someone called and asked if I was going to our oldest daughters for my grandsons 2nd birthday and I said no.  My mothers 80 Birthday Jubilee is the weekend of March 3rd so I will see him in Montana.  This is the first trip of the year and I can't see us going anywhere until summer.

     The shop was a little busier yesterday and I do have work that needs to go out with in a few hours. I hope that trend continues.

Have a great and productive day!



  1. I'm going to try to get my taxes figured out this weekend if my part-time employer has sent the W2s out. Not looking forward to it, but so ready to get it over with.

  2. I'm waiting on a student loan interest document, too. I was told today it will be sent by the end of the month. Funny, I thought that's what this was!


  3. Yeah no credit card use in a month! Eeekk you just reminded me I need to do our taxes!

  4. I am waiting for the stupid interest sheet from school also..I swear they do it on purpose. All I need is that and I can push the "thank God Im done button" but noooooo

  5. Great job on no credit card for a month :)

  6. I am just waiting on hubby's W2 then I can do ours. We have everything else, including student loan interest forms. I just want them done and put behind me.

  7. That’s a bummer to be given ultimatum when doing taxes. Being time-pressured leaves more room for errors. Anyway, I get to realize a few things about how much I spend in a year when doing my taxes too! :D
