The taxes are done --- finally!
This year I found myself saying over and over, “Maria you have to get this done!” then putting it off longer and longer until I finally ran out of time.
I know why too. I had this suspicion I’d owe money this year and ugh! Turns out I was right :/
First time through I ended up owing THOUSDANDS… which, given my income, I could hardly fathom. A double check revealed a decimal error which thankfully turned the thousands into hundreds…. Whew!
But I still owe money and it’s money I really don’t have to spare which kind of makes me bitter toward the government. I mean it’s not like they use OUR money sparingly, live on a budget or have to do without right?
So looking for something to be grateful for (and frankly not finding it in this moment) I sent the return and payment in, deciding to be grateful that it wasn’t thousands after all :)
And I resolved that next year I’ll owe more in taxes than I made for all of 2011! Why? Because if I owe that much it means I made a whole heck of a lot more than that so hey… I’ll be happy to share the wealth!
Definitely NOT paleo but after today’s tax hassle trust me… nothing was gonna make me feel better than that ooey-gooey-chocolaty-goodness!
Ahhhh…. I feel so much better now :-D
