The taxes are done! Yay! I had a great sense of satisfaction hitting that "submit" button. (I have visions of my tax forms going out into space!) And I think we are even getting some back this year. I'm not really sure because after all these years of doing the taxes, I am still afraid I am doing something wrong. So, I hold my breath and tell the IRS what I think they owe me and they tell me what they really owe me. And we all know who wins that disagreement. At least I don't think we owe them but they'll let me know.... I thought I was late this year but when I looked at last year's printout, I saw that I waited until the 12th. So, I'm ahead of myself!
Thank you everyone who sent hugs and strength for the biopsy. As I sat there waiting for the doctor I thought of you all in the room and it made me laugh. I was feeling nervous and it made things a little better.
And sometime this month, my blog is one year old. When I started last April I wasn't sure what I had to say that anyone could possibly be interested in. What I learned was that it isn't the exciting parts of our lives that make for good reading. It's the quiet, everyday observances and laughs and tears that make for connections. Reading and writing blogs on "these here internets" lets me see into other people's lives and lets me share a part of my world, too. I want to celebrate that somehow. Perhaps a contest. I know. Leave a comment and tell me what you have learned about yourself while blogging. I'll take comments up until April 15th (tax day!!) and then pick randomly. What's the prize, you ask? I'm not sure but I'll put together a box of local goodies.
Hump day! Yay for Wednesday.
