Taxes....woe is us!


For some reason, around February when the T 4 and T this and that form starts arriving in the mail, my sweat glands go into action and the sweat increases, until I have all the paperwork into the hands of the accountant and I can finally relax! It's not paying the taxes, or what or if, I'll get any money back, or horror's of horror's, what will I have to pay, it's that elusive little paper or two, that is desperately needed by the accountant, that no matter how efficient, I strive to be all year long, there is no place I can put my hands on it! It's disappeared, vanished!! Then I try to retrace and attempt to delve into the deep recesses of my brain, to try to figure out what ,when, or why, something may have happened that will remind myself if I had a reason to put it somewhere, or if I even did get some sort of paperwork to file away at all!! I dig through drawers, go through files, check here, there and everywhere!
So then I decide to call the Gov. of Canada to try to connect to the office I need, and after going through the automatic service they provide, and I'm dripping in sweat, I throw my hands up and say SCREW IT!!
What did Scarlett O'Hara say "Oh well, I'll think about it tomorrow"

Today, as you may have already guessed, that's what we did today. See the accountant! Let's forget about that subject. I'm too worn out to think about it!

After we did, that we met Bill and Dianne at a Japanese Restaurant and they had a beautiful menu, however I'm not a fan of that type of food, but I finally found something on the menu, I would eat. Everyone else, ordered with gusto and it looked fantastic when it was brought to the table, but I was quite content with what I had. Beside, when with Dianne, there's no time to eat, we are too busy chatting a mile a minute! They are such wonderful people and I just love them. So Dianne, when you read this before bed tonight, I'm sending you a big hug!!! Love you both!

Then we walked back to the sea bus and back to the North Shore of Vancouver to The Quay, which is filled with little booths, selling this and that. We bought some soup from the Soup Meister to take home for supper. Then we stopped at Tim Hortons for my fix! How I love that coffee...and doughnut!

Then home to see if I can sort out this mess with the taxes....ohhhh, let's not talk about that!

So, I'm thinking on the bright side of life and looking forward to Survivor on tv tonight. I'm already in my PJ's and we likely won't have much for dinner, so the world is right...for the moment!! I hope everyone else had a great day!

Picture of the day: My last day at work!! How can they do without me, I thought!! Well, strange enough, they did very well!!!

Thought of the day:
It's income tax time again, Canadians: time to gather up those receipts, get out those tax forms, sharpen up that pencil, and stab yourself in the aorta.

Be wary of strong drink. It can make you shoot at tax collectors... and miss.
