Taxes are like sex…

You spend the whole time anticipating the end and when you get there it’s always too soon.

(Okay, not a perfect analogy. But, you get my drift. I mean, I did Marc’s taxes in 10 minutes while kneeling on the floor in our room with Madeline sick in bed, Olivia crawling all around, and Luke standing on my legs hugging me from behind. And can I just say how happy I am with our return this year?! Definitely just what we needed after a year of buying a house, a van, dealing with house issues, and having another life to take care of. I’ll write up the “good copy” and get it in the mail tomorrow, hopefully. I was seriously giddy and hyper when I called Marc about his forms this afternoon. Haven’t felt pure joy like that since… well… probably since that time that Marc won’t let me mention on the blog…)

    I was trying to come up with a witty comment for why taxes are like sex and the best I could come up with was along the lines of “looking forward to the returns” but it just wasn’t seeming funny.

    But what I really wanted to say is that I LOVE the Glen Hansard album (The Swell Season). I downloaded it off iTunes this afternoon and have had it playing as background music all evening…love it!

    …you start out a little nervous, not sure what the end result is going to be, or who’s going to come out on top, and when it’s all said and done you realise you just got screwed again!

    Thanks for the curling tips! 🙂
    I wish our taxes were easier.. being in the ministry our taxes are extremely odd! we have a lot of trouble doing them ourselves…

    Hey Drea! But just think about all of those nice deductions you get. That’s gotta make it worth the trouble, right?!

    I SO wish you lived in Ontario Dixie. I’d pay you to do my taxes with glee. Le sigh.
