Mondays, Death, and Taxes: Life’s Sure Things

I did not get everything done on taxes over the weekend — and being self-employed is not anything like working a 9-to-5 job where you get money back. When you’re self-employed, you always owe. Making sure you find and identify the receipts for everything that was deductible, therefore, is a critical and damned stressful task.

It’s probably going to take me the rest of today to mark up all the deductible stuff on the receipts, and get all the paperwork into some semblance of order, and kick the Annual Stress Inducer out the door.

NEXT week, I’ll have jury duty (pending the county court having trials going to jury, but I won’t know for sure until Sunday night).

Tomorrow through Friday of this week, then, I’ll get to write fiction.

But today is just going to be a continuation of YUCK.

Hope your Monday is better.
