Update...Post Tax Day

Well, the day has come and gone. All my e-filings went correctly except the one with a transposed number in a W-2 of the EIN of the employer. Interesting that the IRS computer could check that so quickly. It was also quickly fixed and resubmitted. And as it happened very early in the filings, I was extra careful after that reviewing the information.

To save trees this year, I managed not to print out review copies of returns. This was a huge step for me. I love to look at the return on paper. But it's like learning to critique novels and stories onscreen. It can be done. The next step will be not to print out input that's sent to me electronically and to scan originals instead of copying them. But I cut the number of reams of paper I used this year and e-filing also helped with that.

This past week I promptly got sick. No need to send 'get better' wishes, I'm already much better. But I ran a fever and I'm trying not to let my cough turn into bronchitis. I had that once and didn't like it. I haven't been ill after a busy season in ages. Tired and sleepy and unable to do much, yes. But not actually 'running a fever' ill. So this was a total surprise when it came to that point on Wed. I managed to reach 101.5 by 2pm. That's when I took some Advil.

An interesting side effect of running a fever seems to be that today my brain couldn't focus. It took most of the day to have a shower and get dressed. I need to do some administrative work and my brain knows that, but I can't seem to do more than acknowledge it.

And, if you didn't know already, Weatherdude was on ABC national news earlier this week. Here's the link: http://abcnews.go.com/WNT/video/anatomy-tornado-south-states-destruction-storms-weather-13404040?tab=9482930§ion=1206853&playlist=1363340&page=2 Your tax dollars at work.

Yay for Weatherdude!

I hope that a bit of rest will soon see you right. Going really hard at it for so long can't have been fun for your body.

EEE! Weatherdude on TV! I would love to hear all he had to say. Those snippits were too brief.

Sounds like you need some good healthy downtime. I hope you get it, and pronto.

Hi, Weatherdude!

Here's our weather report: rainy nationwide, which means the Good Friday religious processions in Spain can't go out. Since they're the emotional peak of the church year, it's a big disappointment to hundreds of thousands of people.

However, someone just did a hit-and-run on a parked car on my street and damaged their own car in such a way that it was dripping oil. So the cops came and followed the rainbow slick on the wet pavement to the culprit.

It's not as exciting as mile-wide tornadoes, but it's the best we can do.
