Welcome to my world!

My life's been crazy since my Daddy moved in with me immediately after my mother's death in October 2010. My one and only kiddo headed to college at Carolina at the end of August. So...I lived on my own, for the first time in my life, for a total of a blissful six weeks. Then, I started the parenting gig with my dad. He's a combination of a grouchy old man, a surly teenager and a temperamental toddler. Needless to say, I get very close to the brink of insanity sometimes. I get through life by finding the humor in difficult circumstances. And for some reason, I wind up in the weirdest situations. I couldn't make this stuff up. So I wind up having lots and lots crazy adventures which make great stories to share with my friends. Writing about my life is so therapeutic. My ramblings range from funny to sad to angry (full of cuss words) to sweet. While my focus is dealing with the trials and tribulations of being a parent to my Daddy, I have lots of random, totally unrelated posts. Whatever's on my mind. I love to make people laugh, and I'm happy to think my readers will get my strange sense of humor. And maybe, people who are in my situation will be encouraged. That's all I can hope for...

I Hate Taxes!

Not like the Tea Party crazies, though, so don't go hatin' on me, any of you damn dem's out there.
I just hate figuring out the forms. Even with TurboTax, I find myself poring over my Master Tax Guide or going to IRS.gov. My ADD tendencies don't help matters, either. It's horrifying to think that I used to do this all day long, every single frickin' day of the week from January until April 15th.

I've been up since 2:30 this morning and I've finished one Tennessee Franchise and Excise tax return, and I'm almost done with a client's kid's tax return. Except I realized I might be able to get a refund for 2009 if I amend it. First I have to go back to 2009 TurboTax.

The good news is that I can file extensions and then wait until a week before the October 15th deadline.

I'm verging on a panic attack, so I'm going to close and get back to work. Ugh...
