1. I got our taxes done today.
And let me just say this: If I ever speak of wanting to become a CPA, stop me at all costs, please.
It baffles me that anyone can sit at a desk all.day.long. crunching numbers, and not go absolutely crazy.
And did I ever tell you about the time, about ten years ago, that I sat straight
across the desk for about an hour with our tax guy (same guy as today), wearing two
completely different earrings? Dangly earrings, even. Completely different.
That's what I did.
Anyway, we're getting a refund. Hooray!
(And my earrings matched this time)
2. Today was Lucy and Isaiah's Valentine's Day party at school.
But Isaiah kept calling it the Thanksgiving party.
And I'm thinking, he's not going to be giving thanks for this holiday once he's a grown man.
That's what I'm thinking.
But he had a blast. And by that I mean that he was all kinds of crazy, all day long.
I should have known things were going to be off-kilter for that one when he
woke up this morning and told me,
"Mom, today I have one million energies!"
And his teacher did in fact confirm that with me later today .
3. K-Man and I went on a date the other day!
We actually had quality time together and quality conversations.
Such as, a discussion on whether we would be able to go on a little getaway vacation,
just the two of us, this summer (like last year).
We toyed with the idea of a cruise, a week on a tropical island, beach resorts, etc.
Then K-Man said,
"Maybe we could just get a waterbed."
And trust me, he was/is completely serious.
Vacation plans are now on hold (not that we can afford to go anywhere anyway!) and waterbed
plans are totally underway.
And let it be known that it is completely against my will.
But far be it from me to stand in the way of my man with a plan.
That, I will keep you updated on, for sure.
4. I personally think that the homeschool year should be officially over by month's end.
We seem to be going nowhere fast, ever since Christmas break.
What I'm saying is, get me to a deserted island immediately!
Or a waterbed, whichever.
And that concludes my thoughts for today.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have some Olympics to watch!
USA - USA - USA!!!
