I am so glad yesterday is over I cannot tell you.  The workout with Andre' was fine but the rest of it?  Not so much.  I went the tax guy and then had to go to the IRS and was there over five hours, the first one and a half standing in line outside in the heat and humidity and then inside where it was really cold.  I was damp from sweating and got really chilled but finally, finally, it was my turn.  

I had not eaten since breakfast and was dehydrated too from being outside and feeling really rotten but I got a nice agent who was an Iraq veteran and he was very helpful.  I hope it is straightened out now and I am once again in the land of the living but I could have not been if it had been much longer.

So of course there was no pool.  By the time I got out of there I could barely talk and came home and ate something (a sandwich) and drank fluids and then started feeling better.  Why did I not leave?  Well it's only going to get worse as the 15th nears so I stuck it out and now I have a paper that says my return was reviewed by an agent and he has processed it.  The end.

Today shall be better, much better.  I have cards and then I am taking some friends out to dinner at a local seafood place and I am really looking forward to it.  The duck may join us too.  I hope he can.  He needs to get out for a few hours. (For Paul: He's as busy as a three legged cat in a sandbox.)

And so my friends I shall close on that note.  I will feel and be much better today.  Sometimes we all have to go through stuff we don't like but we pull up our big girl panties and git-r-done.  Have a great day!


  1. Goodness! I'm so glad that's behind you. Today will be a much better day for sure, won't it?! Yes, indeedy.

    Enjoy your day and dinner out with friends. Have a slice of cake. big hugs xoxo

  2. Bummer that you even had to go to the IRS place at all! D fer done, and drink lotsa fluids today. Haley wants to go shopping today, so that we shall do.

    Big hugs, honey...

  3. Oh Bee but you're going to explain to me your Southern confusing words every time you write them. Like today, what the heck is , " He's as busy as a three legged cat in a sandbox " I think it's about a cat going to the bathroom, I think. Don't forget I'm a southern Canadian. Ha,ha,ha. I'm sorry about your tough day but another day is another day especially about this seafood dinner. Sounds great to me. Have a great and wonderful day my gorgeous friend. See ya.


  4. Bee, I feel they should have had some type of seating available outside for people. Hate that you stood that long. Next year take a snack and water with you. Glad you are back with the living and done with the IRS for another year. Enjoy your day today and hopefully Duck will join you. xoxo,Susie

  5. If you're going to any government place always take some water and something to eat. They don't care how lot it takes. They don't care about your comfort. They don't care period.

    I had to laugh out loud with Paul's comment about the three legged cat. He may be southern Canadian, but he isn't from the south. Bless his heart.

    I want to join you for dinner. Sounds like grand fun.

    Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you and my best to Roche. :)

  6. I would have dropped like a stone having to stand in the heat and humidity for 90 minutes--even 30 minutes would have taken me down. I'm glad you are still alive--according to the IRS. IDIOTS--all of government.

  7. Oh sweetie, take care of yourself. Maybe keep a protein bar or piece of string cheese and a bottle of water in your car/purse? I need to email my eFile form to my CPA. Thanks for the reminder.

  8. So glad that is all over ! Plus that you are alive.
    Enjoy the pool when you can.

    cheers, parsnip
