Today was a far different day from yesterday. If you were to examine my ability to get done the things that I planned to do today, you would say that all was well. So it would seem. My appointment went well with the Social Security office, and I mailed our 2006 taxes. I might add that this is the first time in several years that we haven’t filed an extension (thanks to my sister-in-law, Mary). I even sorted through our files and threw out the tax returns that were older than 7 years. I went clear back to 1994.
Pretty much all went as well as could be expected. The only issue was that I was an emotional basket case from about lunchtime onward.
I had the post-cry headache raging by the time I picked up the kids from school. So, with McDonalds on the way, I stopped by the store for broccoli salad and a bottle of Merlot.
Oh, and did I mention that I also picked up Tom’s remains at the mortuary today? The family was together again for another gourmet meal. Not. I whined and dined with my McDonald’s hamburger, fries, broccoli salad and a glass of merlot.
