Strea of Consciousness #Socs Saturday : A taxing situation

Here is the link to Linda Hill’s prompt.

(NOTE:  In my haste to publish and get back to that tribulation called tax itemizing, I had to add the above #SoCS picture…and a title, ergo the post change).

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “project.” Use it as a verb, a noun, or both. Have fun!


Tax time dog days

Fun?  What’s that?  

I’m sitting at my desk with an entire drawer full of receipts and itemizing my taxes.  That’s what you have to do when you’re a self-employed consultant.  

Sure, I should neatly put these pieces of paper into slots every month so I wouldn’t have to go through this.  Since I haven’t done that in the past 24 years, I doubt I’ll get around to changing my tactics.

I’ll just continue to bitch about it without end and treat the headache it causes me to go through this…Every. D!m#ed. Year!

Missing the credit card statement for March, April, May and October?  No problem.  Go to the bank’s website and look it up.  Sure, it took 4 times to get all the information that I needed, and I’m still missing a few things, but I’m quickly passing the point of, “I have to make sure I get everything,” to “Why the hell do I bother?”

Writer’s block?  You betcha.

The good news is that I’m 3/4 of the way done.  Once I get past the next hurdle and all this…stuff… is on it’s way to my accountant, I’ll sit down with a chocolate or 10 and let it mingle in with the migraine medication.

One project down.  Or so I hope.  Unless it kills me first.  After that, only 304 more days until January 1, 2018 and I have to worry about doing this all over again.
