Y’all it’s tax season and my taxes are very complex. Last year DURING THE FUCKING PANDEMIC, I did my own taxes an it almost killed me. Usually I pay hundreds of dollars and still end up owing. I did my taxes the old fashioned way with a pen and 47 blank forms. While my state dinged me by $25 because the mail ran late on the last day (even though I sent the payment on time on the Internet) Uncle Sam actually sent me $95. But I barely got through it and it took weeks. I’m already behind getting started. I get stressed once a month when I have to pay bills. The money is in the bank. I know how much I owe. It takes ten minutes and I keep getting stressed and putting it off. I do not know why. It makes no sense. But the IRS? I have to figure out my own bill? Hell and damnation or worse will happen if I don’t get it right? I can barely function.
In anticipation of those of you who will say, “Just pay someone to do it.” I have to get all the numbers together to give them This was gross income, these are my itemized expenses, this is what I paid in quarterly taxes etc. etc. etc. Basically I am giving them the numbers to plug into their program. Figuring out what all of those numbers are is the hard part! ARGH.
And also, my laptop is a piece of shit so I was trying to delete things that might slow it down and somehow included in that was a folder that had my password clues. I know I know but it was not my passwords it was hints only I would know about which one to use. ARGH. If anyone has bad anxiety that comes and goes, this kind of shit is TERRIFYING.
Anyway, I’m not whining for no reason. I’m whining to tell you I need to put off Below Deck Sailing Yacht until tomorrow. I have the season finale of The Bachelor and Banjo would never allow me not to tape The Voice. It is his favorite show. So I am going to have some wine. MAJOR NEWS ALERT I FOUND SOME BLACK BOX MERLOT AT KROGER! I’m starting to hate Kroger less. I didn’t even have to bag my own groceries. And the kid took my stuff out to the car mostly because I asked and was having a full blown panic attack.
Nanette pulled the photos for me and she promises it is a good show! I am looking forward to it. So how are you holding up?
