Tax software: one tab keystroke off on the very first page. It took me two days to track it down. When it claimed suddenly that we had a California refund coming that was more than the value of our old New Hampshire house, uh, no.

I finally found it.  I’m done!

The classic annual elementary-school chant of kids waiting for the schoolbuses to take them home for the summer, morphed into adulthood: No more taxes! No more doing the books! No more giving the paperwork dirty looks!

I got to see a hawk afterwards this afternoon, and it wasn’t even Thursday yet.  I simply sat down and watched, and then pulled out the camera to go notice the rest of Spring.  Pardon me, now, (don’t miss the captions), I’ve got an edging I finally get to go knit.

Those speckled throats on those azaleas make my heart flutter. Not unlike a tiny eagle.

I finished my taxes today, too! (Three sets this year because of a move . . . ugh.)

And apropos of rain, I had to explain to a friend here that it doesn’t rain rain in Idaho like it does in Maryland. You never get those all-day Eastern downpours, just agreeable sprinkles. No wonder everyone here has umbrellas . . .

Félicitations! Did you have enough energy to do a victory dance as well? lol

Enjoy the knitting, more than ever. 🙂

I just got back from the post office where I mailed mine (very old fashioned, I know, but turbotax wanted us to pay to efile the state return and we refused.) Now maybe I can start sewing my blouse that I cut out last week.

Beautiful flowers! As a former (and I DO mean former) tax preparer, I sympathize with your problems. Now a former student of mine is a registered tax preparer. I fill in the computer form, and she takes it from there. Love it.
