Life

Fairly Productive Day

I managed to get out of the house today and get a good bit done.

First, there was the doggie adoption event. Five puppies, two adult dogs. And of those seven, six found new homes today. I’ll take results like that anytime!

After that, I ran a few errands, including a stop at the local Apple Store to purchase this year’s income tax software. Any program that helps make income tax preparation a simple experience is fine with me. I’m just waiting for the IRS to remove the fees for filing electronically. I’m not playing that game by paying for something that makes life simpler for everyone.

Then, there was the gym. My second time at the “cardio” level. It scares me that it seems to be getting easier and not hurting as much. I might actually have to keep this exercise thing going!

Next, the writing. After the workout, I took my trusty laptop to Barnes & Noble, bought me a caramel macchiato (made with lowfat milk and Splenda), and wrote about six new pages and edited a few more. If writing at home were this easy, I’d have finished the silly thing by now.

Now, I think I need a nap.

  1. do you always type in Barnes and Noble?? lol, I’m not sure I could concentrate there.. but then i’m a people watcher.. if i can sit long enough and not be touching the books surrounding me lol

    Actually, this was the first time I’d ever taken the laptop to B&N for the purpose of trying to write. My plan was to purchase no books, buy a cup of coffee instead, and write in their coffee shop.

    But, of course, after writing, I fell victim to the bargain table: two more books came home with me!

  3. What is the deal with the $15 or whatever the IRS charges for E-filing?? Haven’t we paid enough already?

    That’s why I buy TaxCut. It’s worth it for the e-filing rebate which, by the time it’s all done, means that TaxCut has cost me around ten bucks — well worth it for the ease in preparation.
