Well, today was kind of reality sandwich day. I had to take my car in before work and found out that I needed some costly break work done, AND that I wouldn't get my car back until tomorrow after work. My computer was once again full of viruses on a really busy day at work. I then ended my lovely Monday by going to the dentist and finding out I had a cavity. AWESOME!
The strange thing about it, was that I wasn't all that cranky. Since last Fall, I've been really working on trying to relax about things. And when I say things, I mean everything. I've definitely had mixed results, but when I'm in the thick of annoying stuff, I try to figure out what I'm supposed to learn from it, and then let it go. I think what I learned from today, is that I need to get going on doing my taxes, because I need the money. I've basically grounded myself until I get them done. I can go to school related activities for the girls and running, but I can't go out and play until they're done. Then I intend to really whoop it up.
Of course, while trying to do my taxes tonight, the other thing I learned was that I should have done my state taxes on-line because I never did them last year and now have to do them the old fashioned and confusing way - by using the book. I also can't find the print-out of last year's federal taxes. So, maybe the real lesson I need to keep trying to learn is to be more organized.
Okay. Now I'm going to change the subject and finally do the Saturday photo Scavenger hunt. The word this week was family. So, here are some old previously viewed family photos:
This first one was of my family when we lived in Arizona. You can spot me in almost any photo because I'm usually the messiest one in the frame. You know, the one with stuff on my face and one shoe on and one shoe off.
Here's me after my mom died and we moved to Chicago. These are my cousins, I think at Christmas because we're all wearing our best disco shirts.
And finally, this is me after I created my own family in Iowa.
