I Hate March

No, I take that back.

I hate tax time.

For not only do I have to worry about having all my necessary tax paperwork for DH and myself, I have to be sure to have those for our son. I know, maybe you don't do that for your adult kid, but I do. It's how I roll.

PLUS for the past couple of years, I've been doing that for my mother. Believe me, her taxes are still more complicated than ours AND son's put together.

Sudden updates:

I was wrong. Son's taxes (Minnesota) turned out to be much more complicated than ours and mom's put together. That's the bad part. The good part is he'll get THOUSANDS back. I still hate March.

I also hate March because there's been dying going on. My dad's sister called and said her younger (and last remaining) brother died suddenly today. I hadn't seen him in several years. She said he'd been telling folks he was ready to go. He was the black sheep. Not sure he was estranged from all of his children, but at least some of them.

I've been putting it off, but there's other news. The bad news is that Rosie passed away earlier this month. The good news is that there's a new Maltese puppy in the neighborhood!


  1. Taxes are a chore. I let someone else tackle them here. Your mom and son are lucky they have you to do theirs. So sorry to hear about the recent passing of Rosie and your aunt's brother. So sad. Let the memories sustain you. Take care.

    1. Well, Terre, I didn't do them. I did have to harass my son to get his docs, and sift through mom's stuff to get her papers. Tiring!

      Rosie and uncle - we knew they were old, but not ready to let them go. Thanks.
