  • Another week gone in the blink of an eye.  This one was really full though – saw my sister, several friends, pet sat, and lined up some more pet sitting jobs for next week.  Overall, successful week here.  :-)

    Thanks for the mention. Taxes do suck!

  • OH man, just spent 4 hours yesterday getting all my tax paperwork together – I hate it. And I didn’t even have to file them myself!! Meeting w/ my accountant for the 2nd half, haha… ugh.

    (And thx for the shout :) Great list of people here – going now to read some of the other blogs!)
