Doing the "Happy Dance"...or the Check is in the Mail!



Google Image

I'm a happy woman this morning!
Finally...my income tax return is done
and the checks (state and federal)
are in the mail!
This is a yearly ordeal for me.
Although I pay someone to do the return for me,
I still have to locate and organize all
the paperwork needed to do it.
Every year I promise myself
I'm going to find a better method
(i.e. better than just throwing everything
into a file in my desk)
in which to keep track of everything.
Here it is April and I've yet to do anything
to make next year's job easier.
But...I'm done for this year!
And, although it's painful to write those checks,
I remind myself,
the very fact that I have to write them
means I had income this year.
And that, is always a good thing!
