Our Taxes are Finally Finished

I worked for 3 hours on Saturday and over 3 hours on Sunday on my taxes and today I mailed them to my accountant. Webster helped and so did Tabitha. Piggie napped in his crate so I could get my work done. I am so happy. I actually set the timer on my iPhone for the 3 hour self-imposed timeouts. They worked too. I was determined to wrap them up and I did.

I'm lucky when it comes to our taxes . . . my husband (strong accounting background) does ours. BUT I suffer when he's doing them 'cause he's never considered it a pleasant task. Congrats on getting yours done a whole month early!

Mama Pea...The worst part about taxes is getting started. I have a system that serves me well. I'm very careful to put those papers that start coming in after the first of the year in one place. I have to do all of my filing and organize my bank statements before I start with the taxes. Then it goes like clockwork. I have a lot of shredding to do now.
The best thing you can do for your husband is leave him alone. Being interrupted breaks your chain of thought. He has my sympathy.
xo, Rosemary

Oh you are lucky to be finished! I hope that you had a wonderful St. Patrick's Day. I love your Irish Wolfhound doorstop.

Have a great week, Elizabeth

Oooh what a great idea to set a timer. I have a few things I need to work on during my spring break....I think I will try it.
