Taxes and Stormy

Cars of beauty: The 1951 Henry J

But for today (Monday):
I have not filed our 2019 taxes yet.  This is the latest I have ever been. This is not because of the Government changing the reporting date, it is just me being ‘dilatary’, a word created by my mama methinks. Besides who has time for figures (other than Sherry’s) when there is fun in the basement.

I usually do our taxes, except the last 10 years I was in business. Since retiring I have taken the pen up again. The last two years I have made mistakes and had to follow instructions sent from the IRS. I keep getting hints that I should have it done, but I am cheap.

Lighter note…
I am still having fun remembering that stinking cat showing me where she had the kittens. If she was a dog I wouldn’t think anything of it, but this is so strange. Other times she had kitties she has kept it a secret. After coming to eat she would leave the house and go the opposite direction until she was out of sight, then circle back to her hiding place. 

This year she actually took me to them. I will try to get a picture of the terrible place she picked. Terrible in my eyes, but in this case it is just about a fact another animal will not find them. The kitties won’t wander off while she is out eating or doing her toilet either.
Anyway I hope you all had a great Easter. Take care and be safe.

You had one smart Mama. Dilatory, meaning causing delay or slow....was the right word for her to use concerning your taxes. lol. You'll get to it when you find the time. I'm also befuddled about Stormy bravely showing you where she'd birthed her kittens. It's unusual even for tame barn cats, also very secretive. Stormy knows you'll never hurt them. We had a very quiet Easter at home with phone calls from the kids. Strange.
loven'hugs from up north where the spring 'stormy' dropped 7-8 inches of new snow. We're just grateful it wasn't the predicted 10-15. The sun is shining, the winds are up to 40mph so it'll disappear in a hurry, so we hope.

Can't wait to see where Stormy had the kittens. She sure is trusting you this time around which is a good thing! We got our taxes done back in February; seems like a lifetime ago LOL with all the changes since. I may look into taking classes to do them next year; we'll see. So different doing them with the software compared to the old days when everything was entered by pen. We did have a nice Easter; quiet but the weather was nice and the food delicious and the sermons I listened to on line were great, so can't beat that!

Thanks for the update on Stormy D!
Like Betty, we filed our taxes on line a couple months ago. There've been so many changes to the tax laws, I admire your doing yours yourself. The longest I ever worked was for a CPA firm … back before all this whiz-bang software. The bosses still prepared returns by hand and we'd type in triplicate with that awful carbon paper. (Dating myself much? LOL)

With all that has been going on there is little time to think about taxes. The last thing on most of our minds. Since I retired and love on SS I don't have to file them anymore. I did however pay them when I worked so now I can enjoy retirement. Stormy is being a good mama and showing she cares bout you too. She has become very trusting and knows where home is . Hope you all had a wonderful Easter too ! It was definitely different here.

My hubs has not done taxes either and we get those notes once in awhile too - we are cheap too.
Sp where did Stormy have her kittens?

Lisa said...

Cats are like women. You will never figure us out. Haha.
I have a feeling that once she starts weening them kittens (5-6weeks) she will bring them in to ya. She will want you to take them off her hands. Whatever happened to Stormys last kitten?
