It seems I won’t be writing daily! At least not during tax season. Which is over, for me, pretty much. Just have to make sure all the papers get sent off to the IRS, and the files get cleaned up and then clean out the tax box I have been hauling around since February 1.
I really like this part of my job – coordinating 4 tax sites and doing tax returns. Volunteer management – not so much, but it is part of the game. When we got into this 6 years ago, I was sure I would hate doing tax returns, but now I have been doing it for long enough that I am comfortable with what I know, know where to look for what I don’t, and can reallly feel like I helped people. It is amazing to me how many people are AFRAID of the whole tax deal, even if they know they are getting a refund. I have a healthy respect for the power of the IRS but now I know that it is possible to talk to real people there and get answers that make sense (well, you know, eventually). Amazing.
Anyway. That is what I have been doing for two and a half months, straight out. I am so tired. So glad it is spring. So glad the snow is almost all gone – just a few patches here and there. I started my tomoatoes. I want to start everything else, but I know it is too soon. I think I will repot houseplants today. And go mess around in my craft room some more, it needs cleaning out, for sure. Maybe rake the yard – or maybe not. A nap is sounding pretty good right about now.
