Toiling, Taxes and Tired
March 29, 2010 § 8 Comments
First, I’ve been toiling in the fireplace room (it’s probably simpler to call it a den but our kids had no idea what that was when we bought the house so when referencing it that’s just what we called it and it stuck) getting ready to deconstruct it.
I’ve got a corner yet to clean out, paneling to remove, a wall to assess and maybe replace, a hole to fix, nail holes to fill, paint to apply and a carpet to clean. But true to form, I have a list…
And yes, I did the list AFTER I finished the first four things on it just so I could cross them off. ( 😉 Colleen) Anyway, I’m hoping to have it all done by the end of April. Wish me luck!
Next it’s taxes…I’m tempted to whinge a little here but I won’t. Despite what a pain it is to look for, sort through and organize our receipts, we do have an accountant friend who does our taxes for free. Still, I spent the better part of the morning just organizing our shopping tickets.
Tomorrow it’s the big stuff like T4’s, charitable contributions, investments and contracted repairs and upgrades. Yeah, being a grown up is so coooool. (sigh)
Finally, it’s tired. And no I don’t mean me, I’m actually doing quite well on the energy level front. But I suppose being laid up and bored out of your mind for nearly a month will do that to a person. I’m talking about Rosie…
I caught her in mid-stretch. She was sleeping soundly until I walked up to her and pointed my camera at her. Poor thing was stuck outside all night in the rain. She didn’t come in when Hubby shouted last call around 11:00 pm. She must have been counting on me having a bout of insomnia and checking the door at 2:00 am.
Too bad for her I slept soundly through the night.
