Income Taxes

"Income tax returns are the most imaginative fiction being written today." - Herman Wouk

It has been 8 years since I worked in public accounting, but I have not missed the tax seasons at all. The stress and overtime of tax season is why I got out of it. I did it for 8 seasons. And while my children were young! What was I thinking?!?

We just got ours done and I am so relieved! I always dread it, not the doing it part, but the bottom amount. This time we get a refund! I never know how our income will fluctuate in a given year. It seems to be like driving in the mountains, up and down and winding all around.

Thank you IRS! I look forward to hearing from you soon!


  1. I am happy for you Grace!
    Love the quote by the way, very funny :-D

  2. Mine are TurboTax easy, thank goodness.....but the boyfriend has a shock this year. Apparently, some sort of 'credit' was given to working folks, but as a retiree, enough hadn't been taken out of his retirement check and he ended up owing a lot. Fortunately....or unfortunately, I don't make enough to be affected. lol
    Saw you note about my 'lesson' on my blog. :) I do really enjoy the job....and hope that you enjoy the tastings at the stores. :) I keep looking for an email from you via my blog. :(

  3. Grace, in an older email, I remember you talked about a diet plan, etc. Is it an online thing where one can track oneself? I've order some Chinese stuff from my Daughter's hairdresser in Dallas and should have it late in the week. She has lost 40 pounds since Jan. using it so I'm going to try it....ordered 2 months worth. I'm just thinking I need some accountability (I guess to myself), so I thought I'd ask if you have something you'd share.
    Thanks for your comment on Tulsa flowers :)
