Tax Time Again

Duff here. Just like a Steam Locomotive, Tax Time is roaring down the Track. I’ve noticed Folks are frantically digging through Papers. Looking online to find Important Information. Even tearing Their Hair out as the Deadline looms closer. Anxiety is at an All time high. Have the rules changed? What can I write off? (Not that I even know what That is, but I hear the words . . .) Not unstuck at all.

Mom goes through this process during Christmas Break. She sits with Her paperwork, small Lamp focused on the Business Books, and moves along. The sound of the Adding Machine lulls Me to sleep. But I’m occasionally awakened by a Strong Word or Two, for She watches the College Bowl Games as She toils away. To keep Mom’s Mind fresh and on task, We also take Lots of walks during this Time. (I like that!) And after a while? Done! Ready for the Tax Man. That’s living unstuck.

How about You? Are You a Last-Minute Louise? Or do You work at It through the Year? I say: Whatever works for You is the Way to go. Mom likes to meander down memory lane as She checks out Expenditures. What went well. What She wouldn’t do again. Oh my! She has fun, and I do too. All Part of living unstuck. #unstuck-liivng#tax-time

Next to being shot at and missed, nothing is quite as satisfying as an income tax refund.
