Alas it's True, I'm an official TAX PROCRASTINATOR!

It's like looking forward to a root canal. Ugh- I hate the things.Tax calculation, I mean.Root canals, too. Don't get me wrong, I'm not one of those who thrives on last minute adrenaline addiction.
Ours is complicated. Several businesses including a rental. I have 2 boxes of receipts.

We do our own on Turbo tax. Makes it some what easier. Only 12 hours instead of 19.

Seems were so busy living daily life, it's hard to fit in just one more thing.
Bring on the flat tax!

The Big Brown Shelf

It's the dark wood I love but it just doesn't work. This week I decided that the shelf that looks so stylish in my office is nothing more than a monolith. A 1970's monument to what should be useful storage. I remember this shelf as child-we kept our "good" china in there, games and Mom's fancy blue glass collectables.

Right now there are some tapes & a sewing basket in there but the shelf takes up more room than I have stuff to fill it. I've tried giving it away but it will probably be banashed to the basement again.

It's great vertical space but I need room for laundry baskets. It's the sort of tool that's hard to repurpose.
