It's the Happiest Season of All

I love tax time. I love doing our taxes; I love filling out the little forms; I love submitting my taxes (and for free this year too--yippee!); I love (crossing my fingers here) getting a refund. I get so excited for January 31st because I know that employers are supposed to have the W-2s mailed to everyone by that date. And the 1099s? How fun are they?! It's all just so much fun.

Along with tax time, the new year brings a new budget. With Chuck working in the schools, I actually get to adjust our budget twice a year (!) as his pay increases take effect in September. I love doing the budget. Seeing how much money we can put into savings or use to buy new fabric is thrilling. Then updating the Excel spreadsheet to track it all?! Oh my. I can hardly wait.

Don't bother telling me how sick I am. I already know.


  1. I am telling you anyway...YOU ARE TOTALLY WEIRD.

  2. I'm not sure how I stumbled across your blog but definitely fun to see updates of your little guy! You are missed - crazy I know because you didn't move that far. Emily is no longer a 'hive...

  3. Erin are you being sarcastic????? I can't imagine anyone enjoying doing their taxes! You sounded so excited that I almost got excited about doing ours....almost.

  4. Erin, if you don't get help at Charter Summit (or was it Charter Canyon?), please ... get help somewhere.

    I'm glad to hear that some people like doing taxes and mathy things. It balances out the universe, since I like reading 500-page novels.
