Friday Stuff and a Thank You!



Yesterday was my day to get the taxes done day.  It shouldn't be that hard, but I am a bit scattered and so is my paperwork.  Our tax stuff is pretty easy, then you add in the rental, and my eBay stuff it gets a little more complicated.  I do it to myself by waiting until the last minute.  And by not always reconciling the eBay paperwork monthly makes the end of the year pure drudgery when it comes to taxes.

For the most part, I have put it all together.  It did take most of the day, but I sure feel better.  I can
My late blooming Christmas Cactus 
call the accountant and make an appointment for next week.  Whew!  Maybe I can stop stress eating now.  The taxes were really stressing me out and I cope with stress by eating junk.  Emotional eating has always been my downfall.

I am feeling pretty accomplished this week.  The yard work is done, the taxes are 95% complete and no one is sick! Today I will start straightening out my eBay packing corner, plant Sunflower seeds along the fence in front, and take a load of stuff to Goodwill.


  I have been cleaning out stuff in our room that has been there for years and that we never use, such as books, old college books, and in our closet, clothes that I never wear.  I did pick about 5 items to donate, but there are so many more in my closet that I do not wear.  I always think that I will need that item one day so I better keep it.  I pretty much wear the same 4-5 outfits, so pitching out the ones I don't wear should be easy.  Oh... but it is not.

A big thank you to the blogs listed below.  These lovely ladies have included me on their blogroll and I really appreciate the link-up.  If you have not visited these blogs, make sure to stop by and say hello!  You won't be disappointed.

    1. I totally get it about the clothes that are in the closet just hanging there. If I took out all that I did not wear, my closet would be a ghost town.

      Taxes are a pain, glad yours are done!

  2. Ha, no need to clean out clothes I don't wear since the city took all to the dump. I always took taxes to someone to do for me. It scares me. Now, I have been told I do not need to submit taxes. I don't know. I have no income except ss and disability. I stress eat, too.
