April Friday!   6 comments

I’ll be doing taxes – bet you are surprised!

It’s our last day doing them Down East in Milbridge – I’ll be there with three intrepid volunteers, all willing to get up early and drive far to help me.  They are the best!

Anyway, it will be a long day, so likely I will just come home, eat supper on the couch, do a wee bit of knitting before I fall asleep.

Saturday will be more fun – we are off to the big city to get the tires switched over to summer tires on A’s car.  And in anticipation, I made a list of supplies I need from the bead store. YES I SAID NEED and I meant it. Things like jump rings and clasps.  Not too many beads on the list. What’s the point of having all this yarn and beads if I have no clasps?

I hope the Beaded Moose has what I need, but if not, I will check out AC Moore or JoAnn’s.  Still no luck?  I guess I will go online – I doubt I will be getting to Augusta any time soon to go to the other small local bead store.

We also will go to the big grocery store – woot woot – unscented products!  Wider selection!  More sizes of the products we love! How pathetic that this is a big deal in our day.

Then home to some relaxing, some housework, some knitting and card making – I am in the midst of making lots of thank you notes for those volunteers mentioned at the start of the post. Which has really turned into a Saturday list post, hasn’t it?  Well, take heart, tax season is nearly over, then things will return to what passes for normal around here.

  1. 🙂 Glad to hear you are surviving tax season – I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, you are a courageous and dedicated soul – 🙂 I start compiling my stuff the end of December and am ready to file the minute the online filing is opened – just to get it done and out of the way – 🙂

  2. Sounds like a plan to me. Enjoy the craft store shopping. They have all their Spring time items out and the colors are a real treat to look at.

    • I found what I needed a the bead store – so no other shopping. Except the grocery store. Bead store is closing earlier than I had hoped – April 30. 20% off now, I will keep stopping in, because I am sure the discounts will get steeper.

  3. How terrific of you to volunteer your time. Taxes can be daunting. I’m glad you have fun forays in store.

    • Taxes are daunting – even for those of us who are trained. But we DO get trained, and we work in teams, so it works, and it’s good to be able to help people get their taxes filed right, and for free, too. 🙂
