Monday Maddness

And there he is... smiling and loving that silly box. Was it worth the wait? I sure hope so.

Looks like I am destined to blogging late at night this month. I seem to be so busy in the daytime that this is my only moments to sit and think about chatting.

I did my sisters taxes tonight for her and will do her kids taxes later this week. For years and years I paid someone to do our taxes for us because I was always afraid I'd goof it up and the IRS would come arrest me for an addition error or something. LOL. Then while I was doing data entry work for a bank that processed taxes, mostly sales and corporation and estimated taxes, they won the bid to process NYS income tax returns and I worked in that department. Suddenly I understood the forms and the fear left me and I started doing my own from that point on. Now with Turbo Tax online and free e-filing it's even easier.

Tomorrow is Super Tuesday election day in NY. I work the polls so I will be out of the house for most of the day. 11:30am to 9:30pm. I really enjoy doing it though, it's an easy day, I can bring knitting or puzzle books whatever, and the people I work for are great too. I also work in the district I vote in so I get to see all my neighbors as well.

I made a really cool thing today for my secret cocoa swap partner, I can't wait to send it out. And blog a picture of it too. I won't though until I am sure she has received her package just in case she happens to check out my blog. With Murphy as my maiden name you know the day I post it would be the one day she would visit right???

I haven't decided exactly what I will bring tomorrow to the polls, I am leaning towards some assorted acrylic balls and just making some squares for charity. I will bring some of my already made dishcloths though especially the red white and blue ones maybe someone will want to buy one, or order a few. I have sold things there before, so we shall see.

It's going to be warm tomorrow I think in the 40's. My plan is to get up and walk 5 minutes every hour that I am working tomorrow. There are stairs I need to climb to get in the building and my plan is to count every 2 times up the stairs as if I walked up my house stairs once so on my 5 minutes break I will walk outside, to the end of the building and back up the stairs again. So if all goes well I should be able to add 5 stars to my chart when I get home tomorrow night.

I guess that's about it for now. I want to try to get to bed earlier tonight so I am not tired tomorrow and make excuses.

Hoping today was a good day for you all... praying always that God blesses you and all that you do.

Psa 29:11 The LORD will give strength unto his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace.

Taxes aren't so scary when you get the hang of it.
He is loving that box...too cute.
I want to blog my blah buster buddy too but I'm afraid of the same thing.
Oh well, I guess we'll just have to wait.

One of the things I want to do when I retire is volunteer for a political party/cause, and elections -- I long to be part of the process!

(Too, too cute in that box!)

Seeing Adam in that box reminds me of my kids playing outside in the big refrigerator box. They had a ball, and it looks like Adam is too.

I hope that you achieve your goal today and put 5 stars on your chart tonight. I'm really interested to see how the polls go today.

I'm still waiting for Becca to send me my pictures. Hopefully she'll do it soon so that I can get them posted today.

I just started another tapestry crochet hot pad. So back to work I go. See you later.
