Taxes and Other Stuff

Michael has always handled our taxes and I’m happy to let him.  Emmi and I try really hard to be quiet and out of sight!  Until he starts asking questions such as, “do you remember what you bought from Amazon for $17.34 in February, 2012?”  Now really???  John does the same thing to Brenda—I know we have super memories but geez! 

Thank goodness for the internet and—you can pull up your entire buying history—maybe that isn’t such a good thing when your husband is looking but at least you can tell him what that item was way back in 2012!  SmileWe survived the beginning of tax season!

After a delicious late lunch of grilled steak filets, roasted potatoes, carrots and a salad we went to run some errands.  I am looking for a specific size table for the quilting studio and Michael had a couple things on his list.  He is searching for a lighter weight pair of steel toed boots—not sure they exist but we are looking. 

I sent Jane’s quilts on their way to Maricopa, AZ after taking lots of photos—once Jane has seen them, then I will post those photos. 

Gloomy weather here, cooler and misting rain most of the day—makes for soggy doggy feet. 


  1. So far so good, with the tax prep. We will be doing our battles as soon as we get home on or around April 1. We have never gotten this close to the wire ever. Should be interesting!

  2. I guess Revenue Canada and the IRS don't understand what the little ;-? emoticon means on the tax form.

    1. See even blogger doesn't accept that "puzzled face" emoticon so how would the other guys.

  3. Oh gosh, I have to start on our taxes tomorrow. Was going to start today, but pulled the "Procrastiation Nap" routine instead. LOL

  4. Ugh! Truly despise dealing with taxes. Best of luck with the process.

  5. Luckily, we have until the end of April to file our returns so I don't even have to think about it until we return home. Not running any kind of business and with both of us retired our returns are pretty basic anyway - I just plug the numbers into TurboTax, hit Enter, and see what comes out!!

  6. Hehe, in our home, I'm the one who deals with Quicken (our way of keeping track of receipts and balancing statements) and getting ready to meet with our tax man. And I'm the one ALWAYS asking Marty where's the receipt for this or that, and/or what did you buy from (insert vendor) on (insert date) or 'was this all on you?' or was it split between you and (insert friend's name) when he goes away on his photog jaunts. I'll have to remember that Amazon tracks your history - I don't use them often, so learned something new today :)
