I’ve had appointments this week. And my ankle is doing better too, I’m happy to say. VERY happy to say.Yesterday I had to go to see my accountant to do my taxes.
Ugh! I hate to do this because it means writing those checks. But self-employment taxes aren’t cheap.
The accountant schedules me when he things there is the least chance of having too many folks in there. (Thus noise.)
Because it’s a pretty small room, and the other accountant does taxes for people of different languages. So all that going back and forth makes me jumpy and I can’t think straight.
After paying taxes, I won’t be buying anything for awhile. So whatever needs to be done in the bathroom will be done with whatever I’ve got here already.
The day before that I had my bi-annual appointment with my doctor and lab work. My cholesterol was a bit high, as well as my blood pressure.
It was warm yesterday, so I felt in the mood to shift some furniture around in the living room.
What’s great about my vinyl floors is that I can easily scoot furniture across it. I needed something to take my mind off my taxes and the checks I had to write…
It may or may not stay this way. I like to move things about and think about it. Not that anything stays anywhere permanently.
I’ve decided I’m going to sit on the couch with the ottoman for awhile. Just so I don’t manage to wear out the chair too fast.
Where I sit, the pupsters sit of course. One on each side.
A week or so ago I gave them a home hair cut. And I didn’t do a very good job. But that saved me $75.
While I was at it I cleaned my living room furniture and conditioned it.
And thank goodness I figured out how to get the cable going on the TV after I moved it. I’m not very good with things like that. However I rarely turn on this TV.
I did three loads of laundry.
We got a new maintenance man named James. The first thing he did was clean up the massive mess behind the maintenance shed. Which was what I see out my door and have for three years come April.
It was a horrid mess of broken mirrors and glass and pieces of cabinets, etc. Looked like a mini junkyard. Now all that’s back there is a line of grocery store carts.
Don’t know where those came from. But they’ve been there since I moved in.
And I was sent another book to read and review by Harper Collins. But this past week I’ve been reading books I already had saved on my Kindle.
Here’s what Amazon.com says about it…
From USA Today bestselling author Meg Donohue comes a mystery, a love story, and a mother-daughter tale about two women on a precarious journey to uncover their true selves.Passionate and funny, radio personality Gail Gideon is a true original. Nine years ago when Gail’s husband announced that he wanted a divorce, her ensuing on-air rant propelled her local radio show into the national spotlight.
Now, “The Gail Gideon Show” is beloved by millions of single women who tune-in for her advice on the power of self-reinvention. But fame comes at a price. After all, what does a woman who has staked her career on being single do when she finds herself falling in love?
And is the person who is harassing her in increasingly troubling ways a misguided fan or a true danger to Gail and her daughter, Nic?
Fourteen-year-old Nic has always felt that she pales in comparison to her vibrant, outgoing mother. Plagued by a fear of social situations, she is most comfortable at the stable where she spends her afternoons. But when a riding accident lands Nic in the hospital, she awakens from her coma changed.
Suddenly, she has no fear at all and her disconcerting behavior lands her in one risky situation after another. And no one, least of all her mother, can guess what she will do next…
Isn’t my life fascinating???
